Cambridge, UK (PRWEB) January 18, 2007
Excite UK has partnered with Workcircle to launch its brand new personalised job search engine. The new channel uses Workcircle's technology to provide a custom vertical job search engine for Excite UK, integrated into its existing site, hosted and managed by Workcircle.
Bernhard Berger, Business Development Manager, Excite UK, says, "Excite is a stylishly designed portal with a host of relevant, useful content and services. A slick, simple service to assist jobseekers is a perfect match for us and Workcircle made it easy and very quick to launch the new channel. Users will be delighted with the new service and can start benefiting from access to the latest jobs for 2007 immediately."
The site has all the features expected from a top-notch job site, plus additional integration with Excite MIX, the user-friendly personalised start page. An RSS feed is available for each personalised job spec when users search, enabling jobseekers to receive the latest advertised positions as they're announced. The RSS feed can be added straight to a user's Excite MIX page with one click on the Excite MIX button.
Workcircle CEO Simon Appleton says, "Partnering with high-profile brands to help them generate revenue from job sites is a key part of our strategy. Excite was an obvious first partner, with an existing under-utilised jobs section, and a team keen to provide the very best services to their users."
