MADISON - The state of Wisconsin is reworking its jobs site to make it easier for people to post resumes.
The Department of Workforce Development site has plenty of potential. State officials say it saw 6,500 more job listings last year than the year before.
Before, applicants had to put their resume data into a standard form. Now they can post their resume directly or link to an external site.
The department says it has been improving the site since its launch in 2008. Besides resume options, the latest improvements include letting users search jobs by keyword, create profiles of themselves that employers can search, and enabling social media.
RHINELANDER - “This time of year is just a little different because the pressure is more,” says Anthony Turek, Rhinelander Postmaster. “Christmas is coming we’re a little over 2 weeks away I think right around two weeks and this is it.”
Its crunch time at the Post Office. With Christmas fast approaching it’s important to keep a few things in mind when sending packages this holiday season.
“You’re going to want to take your packages and gently shake them a little, just to make sure that you are comfortable that they’re packaged tightly and securely so that nothing happens to them,” says Turek.
First don’t be a procrastinator! It’s never too early to start sending out your packages.
Also remember to write neatly. Make sure and double check the shipping address and return address is correct.
Lastly you’re going to want to keep a few dates in mind. If you want your mail to be delivered by Christmas Eve you need to send it out by December 20th unless you want to pay more for priority mail.
“So those are just a couple things that people want to do to make it so that the packages that they send here end up where they’re supposed to go on time and safely,” says Turek.
