Saskatoon, SK (PRWEB) March 26, 2009
Land That Job! today announced another expansion to the career resource site. Land That Job! has developed widgets for libraries of sample resumes and cover letters to be used by career resource sites and job search websites.
Late last year, Land That Job (http://www.landjob.com) opened up its resume and cover letter templates and made them available for free download. The site previously sold resume and cover letter template packages from 1998 to 2008. The sample resume and cover letter widgets are a further move to open up the site's content and widely distribute it throughout the web for free.
"Widgets aren't anything new," comments managing partner Malcolm Chlan. "Content mashups are not only common but almost the norm for today's websites. We're playing catchup a bit with our technology but we really feel that our resume and cover letter content is a valuable offering for career sites. We're very proud of the progress we are making."
While there are a lot of content sites out there that provide sample resumes and sample cover letters, there's a shortage of content written by professional resume writers or career marketers. All of the samples provided in the Landjob libraries are written by professionals so they provide solid examples for job seekers to follow. Chlan adds, "In general, I feel that not enough job seekers put enough attention into their resumes. They really do themselves a disservice given the impact ones' career has in their life. A resume is a personal marketing piece and people should really study what makes a good resume and cover letter and how to follow up on job applications effectively."
Last month, Land That Job announced the release of job listing widgets for local job sites. Dozens of career sites have already taken advantage of the ability to add a full job search index to their web presence. The resume and cover letter widgets can now enable a career site to provide a complete volume of resources to job seekers.
