Onrec logo The Online Recruitment Resource

Publishers Comment - 05/2000

by David Hurst

Our aim is to improve the magazine with each edition. This month I hope you find the new layout of news, profiles and articles helpful in gaining information on online recruitment.
My intention is to publish a magazine that combines easy to find information and in-depth articles.

At this point I would like to invite you, the reader, to help. We are very interested to hear your views in letters to the editor, your news if your company is involved in Internet
recruitment, and details if you have found a site that you would especially recommend - or that has unusual features.

Visitors to our web site www.onrec.com who wish to subscribe will now find that all new subscribers will be charged 60 for a 12 month UK subscription. I hope this will not deter you from recommending Online Recruitment to your colleagues.

The governmentís move to regulate Online Recruitment can only be seen as good news. What impressed us at Online Recruitment was the speed and efficiency that the government press office dealt with our enquiries. It is refreshing to know that e-recruitment has the close attention of the government.

I gather that the AOLR is gaining momentum, it is a tough job to get an association like this together - particularly in such a fast moving marketplace and where any initial
platform is built by so few in their own time. My hope is that it will be firmly established soon and that more online recruitment sites will find common ground and join together.
