OMAHA, NEB., Oct. 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ReferenceUSA, an online reference and research database from Infogroup announced the release of its newest module today: U.S. Jobs and Internships. ReferenceUSA has partnered with Indeed.com to bring the latest job postings, combined with Infogroup's high value data on businesses, to subscribing libraries. This robust offering enables library patrons to search, apply and prepare for their next career move faster with deeper information and key career insights.
Deeper Information: With this new module, libraries now have the ability to provide patrons with an easy to use job search tool that matches the job opportunity against information on 24 million U.S. business listings from Infogroup to provide complete search results. Patrons can search for jobs by job type, keyword, geography and even salary estimators. Not only can patrons find the opportunity they are looking for, they are now able to see the details about the company including the latest news, key executives, sales growth, competitors and parent and subsidiaries. This seamless integration enables patrons to get the background information they need to truly vet the opportunity for themselves and prepare for interviews all in one place.
Career Insights: ReferenceUSA has also incorporated career support features into the module, with reference materials that provide a variety of insights, including: interview advice, resume writing techniques, general job searching suggestions, aptitude testing, and continuing education testing tips. It also delivers FREE career support webinars and online tutorials that give more in-depth information to further assist job seekers.
"Research shows that libraries are becoming the job search hub in many communities," said Amit Khanna, president, Small and Medium Business, Infogroup. "Residents without internet access or job searching skills are able to visit their local library and receive the assistance they need to find a job. We wanted to provide a robust offering that would not only improve the job search experience, but would give job seekers a competitive edge."
