RSS Job Feeds

Here’s a thought: why not create RSS files for the most recently posted jobs in a career center?  Users could then subscribe to the job feed and follow links back to the ones they are interested in. If people started blogging jobs they found interesting it could get quite a bit more exposure for the listing than it would have had before.  It also adds quite a bit of value to the job posting service for those sites that charge to list jobs (such as association-sponsored career centers).

Would an RSS job feed be more useful than e-mail reminders based on keyword hits?  Guess it depends on how a person likes to get their information. A job feed would provide another avenue for keeping up with job listings without a whole lot of extra effort on the part of the publisher.

Speaking of jobs: ASHA is looking for a Web Administrator.

A google search shows that someone thought of job feeds two years ago. Ha!
