Fairfax's online employment classified services have undergone some radical changes in the last few months, culminating in the launch of the My Career site (http://www.mycareer.com.au).
The new site replaces the fairfax@market employment section of the site and follows the launch of its new online motoring site, drive.com.au.
Mycareer.com.au brings together the company's online services, specifically its IT Jobs and general employment sites. Included on the site is a wealth of information ranging from advice as to when to give notice, to work-related issues such as the rights and responsibilities of employers and employees in regard to maternity leave.
Jobs are no longer sourced solely from the company's print-based publications, with 20 recruitment agencies contracted to the site to extend its national offering. Employers can also post jobs directly to the site.
Job seekers can choose to be a member of the site, which allows you to save a profile, apply for jobs online and save a personal review folder. The JobAlert feature has been enhanced with the addition of a free e-mail account service. This allows job seekers to avoid sensitive employment alerts being sent to the workplace.
