New .Jobs Domain For Job-Seekers

Screenshot of WA in Universe.JobsYou might not think about domains very much. Maybe the .coms and .nets and .orgs of the world all run together for you, and it’s what you see before the “dot” that counts. Well now there’s a reason to pay a little more attention.

.Jobs is a new domain with a specific purpose: to help job-seekers find employment.

And since we’re not out of the “hard times” economy quite yet, that’s a purpose that a lot of people can get behind. Expect to see many uses of .jobs in the future, but for now, check out universe.jobs for an excellent browseable map of jobs (worldwide!), and if you’re in Washington State, try http://olympia.wa.usa.jobs/ (or change the “olympia” part to a city of your choice) to find more local job opportunities.

  1. A Job Seeker Says:

    Interesting re .jobs, I wonder if we will see more extensions in this vertical, like .resumes for example …

  2. I think that’s a very interesting idea! It will be nice to see other implementations in the .jobs domain, though I like what’s there now, and it will be interesting to see how things progress from there.

    Maybe .temp and .career domains as well?
