“Six Degrees” invites you try something …. Um …. Free!

ItzBig is developing an online career network that will, for the first time, deliver value to quiet working professionals who are happily employed and not currently looking for a new job and also to individuals actively seeking a new job.

I spoke to Steven Phenix, online blogger at Itzbigblog.com and Principal, at ViaMetric, Inc., a leading provider of market research, strategic planning, advertising, and E-Media. He gave me the scoop on Itzbig’s detailed plans to test two different user experiences. One for working professionals who are happily employed but are interested in a private, professional, and very personal way to keep an eye out for alternative opportunities (just in case they need one). And another for active candidates which will feature those capabilities, in addition to significant improvements in abilities to interact with recruiters through their dynamic network and ability to receive continuous feedback on where you stand against other candidates for the same job.

Steven is a huge believer in the viral marketing capacity and thought leadership that the recruitment blogosphere provides, so much so, that he is pioneering the marketing component that recruitment blogs provide and finds it to be a natural place to ‘recruit’ recruitment gurus to beta test the user-experience.

HOW DO I SIGN UP NOW? – EASY. EMAIL MICHAEL HANCOCK

Itzbig plans to begin beta testing the “working professional” experience on October 16th and then the active candidate experience on October 30th. The beta test sessions should take no longer than 20 minutes, and you are likely to be done in half that time. During your session, you will be asked to take a handful of actions in the application and then answer a short questionnaire about your opinion. They are in “pre-production,” so they may need a little of your patience, but are excited to be introducing our solution to you and we hope you find it exciting as well.

If you are interested in participating in either the “working professional” beta, or the ”active candidate” beta, please send an email to Michael Hancock, and he will get you scheduled.

Let Michael know what you think of the beta! Tell ‘em “Six Degrees From Dave” sent ya.

    Does this mean that the need for recrutiers to participate no longer exists or is closed out?
