How is the book most useful for its intended audience?

The book is most useful to its intended audiences of job seekers and those who search for talent, such as recruiters, by providing a streamlined and systematic approach for leveraging the best-of-the-best employment web sites to accelerate their searches.

The top four features of this reference guide that offer the most value to the reader.

1. Weddle's easy-to-understand and use SmartSelect and SmartSearch systems for evaluating and selecting the best sites for an individual's purposes.

2. The importance of selecting sites by using criteria that aligns a site's purpose with an individual's needs.

3. The at-your-fingertips access to valuable web site intelligence in Weddle's profiles, such as top salary levels and sources of postings on each site.

4. Additional valuable insight such as the cost and length of time for posting resumes and job announcements.

Weddle's Guide to Employment Sites on the Internet 2005/6 is to job seekers and recruiters what Zagat's is to restaurant patrons. Each year, Weddle's selects just 350 sites that represent the array of capabilities available virtually. Accordingly, Weddle's readers are able to navigate the extensive online menu of 40,000+ employment-related sites. Further, Weddle's User's Choice Awards provide a list of the 30 sites considered to be "the elite of the online employment industry."

Approximately 40 per cent of the sites listed in Weddle's Guide change from year-to-year to reflect the emergence of new sites, the discontinuance of sites cited in previous years, and the evolution of sites offering new capabilities or features. As such, The 2005/6 edition is a completely new book. In order to keep pace with the ever-changing Internet, Weddle's offers complimentary updates at its web site, Weddles.com.

Structured as a reference tool, Weddle's user-friendly guide includes the following key sections: (1) a cross-reference index which delineates sites of interest by category; (2) a recruiter's section; (3) a job seeker's section; and (4) a list of 30 User's Choice Award Winners for 2005.

The Guide serves two specific audiences: (1) those looking for talent, such as employment managers; corporate, executive, and consulting recruiters; and human resource (HR) practitioners; and (2) those looking for employment.

In order to make its guide even more user-friendly, Weddle's has created SmartSelect and SmartSearch processes for those seeking talent and those seeking employment, respectively. Each of these processes is structured into five streamlined steps that allow the reader to masterfully select and leverage the "right" sites to achieve his or her individual objectives.
