One of the most anticipated developments on SCN in recent years is the launch of the Career Center. At the same time, there are questions about how the Career Center will fit into the SCN community and how it will benefit members and job posters.
To get a handle on these questions and find out more about the Career Center launch, Jon Reed interviews Claudine Lagerholm, a Senior Product Manager with SAP and a key part of the Career Center team in this podcast.
During this fifteen minute podcast, Claudine addresses the questions we all want to know about the Career Center: how SCN members can use the center in a confidential manner, and how both hiring managers and job seekers can gain from the Career Center’s integration with SCN. We also hear about the links between the Career Center and the University Alliance program, and how the Center will be enhanced in the months to follow.
For employers, the career center has a special offer: post your job openings for free until the end of September 2009!
