JobGoRound Orients Lost Job Hunters

newsSometimes when you’re looking for work in a new area, it’s a daunting process– not because of the economy or the new climate, but just because you don’t know where everything (or anything) is.  When you move to a new place, it takes a long time to sort out which suburbs are nearby and which too far away to justify the commute.  This can make looking for a job really tricky.

JobGoRound.com has tried to ease this difficulty by creating a new tool called Job Map.  It is easy to use.  You just type in the area where you are looking for work and the type of work you are looking for, and a map shows you where some jobs have opened up.  The map is the familiar Google map which most people have become accustomed to reading.

This visual tool makes looking for a job a lot easier if you are trying to find work outside of your familiar stomping grounds.  Recruiters may wish to refer job applicants to this job board site if they are looking to move to a new region.  Or recruiters may enjoy looking to see the range of regional jobs available outside their area of specialty.
