Register.com Puts Your Dream Job 'In-Site'

NEW YORK--(Collegiate Presswire - November 13, 2006) - Register.com, Inc., a leading provider of global domain name registration and web site services, today announced a new service that allows all job seekers to quickly, easily and economically launch their own state-of-the-art online resume that lives on their own personalized web address. Register.com's career site program www.register.com/career allows even the most technologically unsophisticated job seeker to stand out from the crowd through multimedia features, including video, photography, text and external links while showcasing their adeptness to emerging trends.

A career site from Register.com, starting at $19.99, comes with an easy-to-use set of tools and is backed by the firm's industry-leading customer service team. A customer can quickly and creatively build and publish personalized resumes, online portfolios, cover letter/introductions, business proposals and thank you letters. Alternatively, Register.com offers highly economical design services that job seekers can tap for building a professional resume site on their behalf. Career site packages offer a personalized domain name, sites of either one or five pages, and a 10MB email account. All customers have access to Register.com's industry-leading 24/7/365 toll-free support.

"Securing your own domain and using our easy-to-use tools -- or our professional services -- allows job seekers, freelancers and consultants to demonstrate most fully the depth and breadth of their talent," said Monica Hodges, General Manager of Register.com. "Employers will come to expect an online resume as part of the interview process."

Increasingly, job seekers are using multimedia and domain-based resumes as an integral part of their job search strategy. In their best-selling "Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters," authors Jay Conrad Levinson and David E. Perry advocate that job seekers secure their own domains and build sites for their resumes.

One person who has already put Register.com's career site to excellent use is Emily Flinter, a recent graduate of Quinnipiac University. Emily worked with Register.com's design team and the company's free, advanced domain name search tool www.register.com/findmyname to create two highly targeted and personalized domains and sites: www.emilyresume.com and www.hireemily.com. Register.com's design team then created and published a home page where Emily added a personalized cover letter, links to her resume, projects and activities, as well as a form that prospective employers can use to contact her. Emily's resume was made available in all standard formats -- Microsoft Word, Adobe Acrobat, and Plain Text.

"As someone who was looking for work in production at a top network, I was thrilled to have an opportunity to showcase my work and stand-out from thousands of recent grads with my very own web site," said Emily. "The Register.com customer service team couldn't have made it any easier for someone like me who has never before built a web site. Register.com made me more appealing to potential employers by helping launch my career site on a student's budget and short deadline."
