An award for the quintessential college, career, and job sites.
Quintessential Careers honors one career or job site each issue of QuintZine with the Quintessential Careers Site Award in recognition of quintessential efforts in helping job-seekers.
May 21, 2001: JobStar
For the last five years JobStar has provided local job-search information for California — although much of the information has been useful for job-seekers everywhere. As the site celebrates its fifth birthday this month, JobStar has added the first JobStar outside California, Jersey City, NJ, the Garden State’s second-largest city.
JobStar continues to enjoy support from Careerjournal.com, the career site of The Wall Street Journal. Careerjournal has joined with JobStar to offer users access to an excellent collection of career and job-search information, as well as to JobStar Executive, a database of middle- to senior-level jobs and the Futurestep recruiting service.
JobStar is a free public-library service based on the premise that public libraries serve the information needs of their communities and that helping job-seekers get the information they need to make the right connections is a very important piece of what libraries do.
Job seekers need current, reliable, local information to find job openings, community services, company background, and job-search advice — and that’s what JobStar offers. Salary information has always been a JobStar strong point.
Stay tuned for future developments — a JobStar may be coming to a town near you! In the meantime, all jobseekers can find valuable resources at JobStar.
