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 - Nicolet College's Motorcycle Basic Rider Course teaches folks to safely hit the road on their bike.
The class is in full swing for the season.
Nicolet College Rider Coach Mike Murray says even experienced riders can use a "safety brush-up" this time of year.
Riders should always wear their helmet, long pants and shirts, gloves, and boots.
It's also important to keep your eyes moving for critters that come out of the woods,especially deer.
"If you know you're going to hit it: let off your brakes, hit it with your handle bars straight ahead looking straight ahead so that your bike stays straight up," says rider coach Mike Murray.
The course covers the basics about motorcycles and riding techniques.
It's meant to build confidence when you ride, so that you're prepared for emergencies on the road.
"I've been a rider for a long time. When I completed the class, I had to look back and say man there is a lot of stuff I learned here and a lot of things I was doing the wrong way," says program coordinator Mark England.
You have until October to sign up for the Basic Rider Course at Nicolet.
