Get a Life.. a Second Life Job – itsReal

Next stage of Internet spawns variety of new jobs..

“While small-scale Web 2.0 shops are sprouting up all over, major corporations, nonprofit groups and educational institutions have been scooping up people like Justin Rounds. They end up with exotic sounding job titles such as “director of interactive experience” or “online engagement manager.”
Typically, entry level salaries hover in the $35,000 to $55,000 range, said MITX founder Larry Weber. “

Big-Bit wants to hear from people that are keen to get into this space

I do think that some of the larger companies are very dedicated to having a strong Web presence. There are a lot of opportunities there as well.”

You may have heard of Second Life, the virtual online world that draws millions of aficionados every day. Now imagine a Second Life specifically for business, a world where workers can gather, share files, and communicate securely in a fully animated 3D office environment in cyberspace.

Creating exactly that is what Justin Rounds does for a living. Rounds, 35, is a contractor for Sun Micro Systems in Burlington. He is one of the digital animators behind the MPK20 Project, Sun’s yet-to-be unveiled virtual workplace.

Only a few years ago, a job in new media simply meant Web design. No more. The advent of Web 2.0, the next stage in the Internet’s evolution, has spawned a wide variety of previously nonexistent digital media jobs.

“Technology keeps changing,” said Rounds. “There’s always going to be the next big thing, there’s always going to be a demand for people who are technical minded.”

While small-scale Web 2.0 shops are sprouting up all over, major corporations, nonprofit groups and educational institutions have been scooping up people like Justin Rounds. They end up with exotic sounding job titles such as “director of interactive experience” or “online engagement manager.”

Equally exotic sounding are the technical skills needed for Web 2.0 novices. Software packages like Ajax and Ruby on Rails for website development, or Maya and Blender for 3D animation are all the rage. Many did not exist until only a few years ago. Now they are essential tools.

Still, it takes more than geek credentials to make it in the world of the Web 2.0. Since the work is highly collaborative and only a minority of jobs are posted through traditional channels, social networking skills are just as important.

“There’s just a whole new landscape of jobs,” said Kiki Mills, executive director at the Massachusetts Information and Technology Exchange (MITX), a Cambridge-based digital media trade association. “Now more than ever, you’re able to share information. Obviously, careers are forming around all of this.”

Although purely technical knowledge remains important, a much wider array of skills and attitudes is required for ambitious Web 2.0 novices. The current crop of new media jobs can involve any combination of creating multimedia content, building real-time online communities, and maintaining a presence in the ever-expanding Web search universe.

“Essentially you’re going in as a problem solver for the organization you work for, and you’ve got a variety of tools to work with,” said Bob Daniels, executive director of Boston University’s Center for Digital Imaging Arts in Waltham.

As companies go to great lengths to make sure their names pop up on top of vital Google or Yahoo search result pages, another area that has seen explosive growth, is search engine management.Continued…

Debate: Job Search Engines: and SimplyHired on AltSearchEngines

Every Tuesday on AltSearchEngines we invite two search engines to discuss a topic that they are experts about.  Tonight we are very pleased to hear from Maneck Mohan of and Lucas Mast of SimplyHired.  I asked them a few questions about Jobs.

1)  It looks to me as though most, if not all, Job Search engines are racing to provide the greatest number of job openings “on the planet.”  Is that the real name of the game?  the site which links to the most millions of job listings “wins?”

The number of jobs is important, but from our perspective the ultimate objective is not solely a vast quantity of jobs but rather in delivering a good user experience and thereby ensuring your visitors keep coming back.

Some of the factors that go into this include:

– Easy to use filters that can break down millions of jobs by company name, date of posting, category, city, etc.

– “De-Duplication” which is what we call our process of ensuring that jobs are not repeated, cross posted and duplicated across our search results.

– Authentication – which involves ensuring that the jobs are real, that the posting source is credible and not just “job spam” which is becoming more frequent with the global proliferation of free classified sites..

So ultimately it’s about the quality of jobs, speed, and relevancy (and not just the number of jobs!)

 For Simply Hired, it is about bringing the greatest number of jobs to those who come to our site ( or sites that we power, including MySpace Jobs, Vault, job search on LinkedIn, and more than 2,500 other blogs and websites.  It is incredibly important that we search every place imaginable to bring our users all available jobs, whether you are looking for a job as an accountant in Los Angeles or as a tattoo artist in Topeka.  If we can bring job seekers relevant content that they will not find elsewhere in one place, we would consider that a “win”.

2) Helping job seekers find job openings is one thing, helping employers find good candidates is another. What are your plans for the latter?

IT Recruiting in Web 2.0 & Virtual Worlds – brought to you by:

Companies such as HP that venture deeper into the world of Web 2.0 technologies to find new hires may find themselves disappointed, at least initially. Despite the low turnout the company’s Second Life recruitment trial balloon yielded, however, HP’s Betty Smith is not deterred. She says she sees a lot of potential for using Second Life for recruiting.

In mid-May, Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ) Manage remotely with one interface -- the HP ProLiant DL360 G5 server. Latest News about Hewlett-Packard participated in a virtual job fair using Second Life tools from Linden Lab in San Francisco. HP had been invited by one of its external recruiters, TMP Worldwide Advertising & Communications in New York. During the virtual event, recruiters and job applicants alike created avatars, or personas to represent themselves in the virtual world.

Standing Out

HP’s willingness to step into the Web 2.0 world for recruiting differentiates the company. In Computerworld‘s latest Vital Signs survey, none of the 233 IT professionals responding reported using Second Life for recruiting.

A scant 4 percent said they used blogs or social networking sites like Facebook to engage potential IT job candidates. Only 15 percent reported using professional networking sites such as LinkedIn. Moreover, 52 percent of the respondents said they don’t use any Web 2.0 tools for recruiting.

It seems that most IT organizations are missing out on a huge opportunity to connect — particularly with the talented twentysomethings who inhabit the virtual world. These Gen Yers are “tribal” and accustomed to the “very collaborative relationships” that Web 2.0 tools enable, says Tom Casey, senior vice president and workforce transformation leader at Kingwood, Texas-based consultancy BSG Concours.

XING Releases Research on Communication & Networking

The research unsurprisingly is endorsing XING… there were 7,418 randon XING’s european based with China input… Nothing from outr part of the world or Australia…hmmm so i guess they need more time to extend their global reach…

XING Research….

We have just published our third international survey “Communication and Networking on the Internet”, and  this year’s survey has a lot of interesting results. For example:
Did you know that standard communication technologies such as landline phones and Microsoft Outlook are becoming less important for XING members, while Internet-based networking is more and more popular around the globe? Or that 62% of XING members work in middle and upper management?
