PrintWorkers.com announces the most complete resource for both employers and job seekers in the graphic communications industry

Website is rebuilt and redesigned with a number of new features, as well as a new, easy user interface.

Boston, MA – December 9, 2009 – PrintWorkers.com, the Career Portal for the Graphic Communications Industry, announces that its website has undergone a major redesign, including new, functional work areas for both employers and job seekers.

Phase one of the multi phase redesign has been a complete streamlining of the user interface for both employers and job seekers. It is modern, cleaner, and easier to use. In particular, the employer and job seeker registration process has been simplified. A step by step ‘tutorial’ follows the employer through the job posting process.

Most attention has been given to make the process easier for job seekers. A unique feature is the new resume URL. Rather than sending a prospective employer a resume or posting a resume on a Facebook page, the job seeker can send or publicize a URL link. The resume is held at PrintWorkers.com and proprietary to job seekers. Job seekers can also post their own personalized picture, or a Web 2.0 Avatar.

However, PrintWorker characterizes its Mega Job Search page as the ‘coolest’ development. When a user logs onto the job search page and searches for job listings, they are not only available from Printworkers.com, but also from a variety of other job boards and sources. Therefore, if a job seeker selects “bindery from Boston”, the search engine will produce all opportunities from all the sources among the complete list of job results. In short, one window shows all available jobs, provides access to career resource tools and the resume URL—an exceptional resource. It is simple to create a response to an employer from any of the listing sites directly from the Mega Job Search page—even allowing the job seeker to paste the resume URL or their text resume directly into the message.

“In an age where there is advanced online social networking such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Plaxo, and many others, the reality is that job posting is no longer quite as unique—or exclusive—as it used to be. The employer’s opportunity when posting a job for a length of time—for example, 30 days—is the hope that a job seeker will find its job posting at the time the seeker is looking for a job, or even looking at the site where the posting is located. Job seekers don’t necessarily search a job database every day. And, once 30 days has expired, the job poster is out of luck, even if the ideal candidate goes online Day 31. And, the most qualified candidates may never apply. However, a company with access to a large resume database can search for anyone who has posted a resume within the past year, and in some cases longer,” points out Brian Regan, President of PrintWorkers.com. “The challenge, therefore, is to make a site as attractive as possible for job seekers. We are offering a wide range of services for them. We provide other job resources and the ability to apply to any job right from our site—which we believe will allow us to be the destination site, the job search headquarters for everyone in the printing industry”

The new website, at www.printworkers.com, went live on December 8.
