We are the best source for accurate and effective job and career search information for individuals who are in mid-career.

After a great deal of soul-searching, we concluded that if you have several years of work experience and are in mid-career, the probability of your finding employment by posting your details on a website is far lower than we had previously believed.
Realizing this, we felt it was inappropriate for us to continue to offer that capability knowing that your perception of its effectiveness would not be met with reality.

Your success at finding a new job or career will rely very heavily on the extent of your network. The extent of your network will rely very heavily on well you build and use your network. You won't be successful if you use an approach that is more suited to networking for business. Networking for employment is much different and you need to understand the differences.
