AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Oct 29, 2013) - Today at Spiceworks' sixth annual SpiceWorld user conference, the company debuted new IT profiles with project pages and a job board to help more than 4 million IT professionals who use Spiceworks showcase their work, technical expertise, and identify new career opportunities. Spiceworks is reimagining the IT resume and how IT professionals find their next job by highlighting their experiences and providing career resources within the network they use each day.
"The online IT resume as we know it is now dead," said Philip Moya, IT manager at San Antonio Kidney Disease Center. "IT is a complex job with thousands of vendors and hundreds of specialties, yet until now it wasn't possible for us to showcase the work we do in a way that does it justice. Spiceworks has given IT professionals a vehicle to share the entire IT experience as it happens in a way that's new, visually appealing and helps us advance our careers."
New professional profiles with projects redefine online IT resumes
Spiceworks' new profiles are designed to help IT professionals bring their IT experiences to life by highlighting their skills and the technologies they use to do their jobs. Profiles include community contributions, the vendors they follow, content they find valuable, and traditional resume components such as past work experience and certifications.
IT projects can now be added to any profile and can include photos, videos, geographic information, budgets and more than 40,000 individual IT products and services from Spiceworks' catalog of solutions. Additionally, IT service providers who assisted with projects can also be included. Complete with a timeline of projects, Spiceworks' profiles redefine the online IT resume by providing a rich, visually appealing account of the technologies and people involved in the IT experience.
Integrated job board comes to the Spiceworks network
IT professionals can now use Spiceworks to find new job opportunities in their area or across the country. The opportunities can be filtered by job title, skills, hiring company or location, and IT professionals can also post openings available at their organization. When coupled with Spiceworks' new profiles, IT professionals can showcase their portfolio of work and find the career opportunities they're looking for -- all from the network they use each day.
"IT professionals have an amazing ability to architect and use technology solutions to solve really complex business problems, so we wanted to give them a way to share those experiences with peers, partners and future employers," said Tabrez Syed, vice president of Products at Spiceworks. "Collectively, the new profiles and job board represent major steps forward in how IT professionals share information about themselves, their work and the technologies they rely on to do their jobs."
Spiceworks' new profiles with projects for IT professionals are available to SpiceWorld attendees today and will roll-out to others in the network over the next quarter. Spiceworks' job board is available today. IT professionals can sign up for their new profiles and learn more at http://community.spiceworks.com/people.
