We’ve had a few reports of CV database issues since our server migration. We’re working on this now, as it seems to affect some and not others. The good news is that the new servers should give us much more power and flexibility moving forward.
We’re in the process of upgrading our servers. Whilst obviously we will minimise disruption as far as possible, there may be a bit of downtime while things are set up and re-configured. Apologies for this.
We hope that this should all be completed by Wednesday the 24th April.
Looks like we have a problem in Windows 8 when using the IE Browser (IE 10) with the CV database.
We’re looking into this, but remember you can use another browser. Personally I always use Chrome, but its a personal thing
Watch this space for an update
Looks like we had a bit of a server issue today at about 3:00pm. One of our servers maxed out, then restarted, so it caused a few people to be kicked off. Apologies for that, its all OK now.
I just spotted that you can now run Video adverts on LinkedIn’s PPC campaigns. You can use videos on YouTube as long as they are under 30 seconds long.
So, that’s two things to keep an eye on (and get involved in) in 2013…
Watch this space, and I’ll bring you anything that’s relevant to recruiting….
As of yesterday, we’ve updated the CV search in the CV database with a couple of useful changes.
You can now select counties, regions, and/or entire countries. That means that if you select “Berkshire”, it will only return candidates from that county. If you select “England”, or “South E East”, it will include candidates from those regions. “Europe” will return any in the whole of Europe etc. Previously this meant selecting each country in turn.
The form now uses a “lookup”, so that if you start typing in, it looks up matching locations, rather than having to select from a huge drop down list.
Forward this email
You can now forward a CV to another email address (other than your login address), (eg a colleague) and you can also include some notes against it. The email that is received also includes prominent contact details.
I hope you find these changes useful!
We’ve rolled out an update to our job posting (and editing) form. This is mostly changes to layout and gives you more space to view the job details as you enter them. The main description editing field is also updated to allow more formatting options. The old form,if you prefer it is (for the time being) available by clicking on the link “use original V1 form”
