The Web: Creating and Changing Jobs. Trends and Issues Alerts.
Brown, Bettina Lankard
The World Wide Web is changing not only how individuals locate jobs but also the ways existing jobs are performed. Individuals seeking work will need to know how to use the Web as a tool for enhancing their job performance. The enhanced global communication made possible through Internet technology and the increase of marketing plans combining electronic commerce with traditional marketing initiatives have significantly altered sales, marketing, and public relations jobs. The advent of interorganizational networks ("intranets") has provided a way of making information available to members of organizations while keeping it away from outsiders and have also emerged as a vehicle for continuing education and training of staff. Websites are helping job seekers conduct more efficient job searches. Web-based recruitment is growing as fast as Web-based job search. In addition to introducing new duties and responsibilities to existing jobs, the Web has also led to the creation of new jobs. Webmaster, website developer, network systems administrator, programmer, and customer service representative are among the high-demand Web-related jobs that offer opportunities for continued growth and development and promise high salaries. Contains a 17-item annotated bibliography of related resources. (MN)
