There are countless resources to turn to when looking for employment – from online job catalogues to company recruitment pages. However, chances are you have a pretty good idea of the type of job you’re after. So why not target employment agencies that specialise in job placements within your field? You’ll increase your chances of finding the position you want and speed up the process of job placement.

For instance, if you’re looking for a job in the media industry, you may feel overwhelmed with your choices. Should you turn to employment agents who can do the searching for you, or should you opt to apply directly through media companies? Furthermore, you have the option of ploughing through the countless job listings on massive, all-inclusive online job catalogues. But while all of these resources will point you in the direction of jobs, how can you be sure you’re gaining optimum exposure to the jobs you want most?

If you’re decided on a particular field, such as the media jobs market – or even a particular position, such as a Media Project Manager or a Media Account Director – your best option could be to conduct a job search through a portal dedicated specifically to the media market. Regardless of whether you’re searching for experienced media positions or entry level jobs, media market portals can put you in direct contact with media companies which are currently hiring – simplifying the search process considerably. Moreover, all the positions returned from your search will be within the media field; that means you’ll have a larger pool of potential jobs to search through than if you were to go through an all-inclusive job site. You might even come across a media position you had never considered previously – opening up further opportunities in the media field.

But one of the greatest advantages of going through a specialised portal for your search for media jobs is that you’ll save time. Instead of sorting through a plethora of irrelevant positions, you’ll need only to browse through positions within your field. Your search will remain in your control, meaning you can see search results instantly. Moreover, you can often apply for suitable positions online, so you won’t have to wait for calls from a job agency.

So remember: there are a number of places you can look for media jobs. But if you target media employment specialists, you’ll speed up the process of finding the job you want!

Earlier Job search was a tedious task because of limited availability of tools online. But now it’s easy with the help of online job search engines like It helps you to look for job openings across different Indian cities and states. What does is to create a huge database of jobs, which come from different company career pages and job boards. Then, it categorizes the collected jobs data so that job seekers can easily locate a job which suits them.

This has made the search process easy for job seekers and narrowed down into just job listings instead of using a regular search engine that may provide you a long list of results and some may not even be associated with the job you are looking for.

Another advantage of using is its large job database. If you are looking for job based on experience, location, salary, company then using is effective for you.

You can also create job alert for the keywords which you are looking for.

Advanced search: If you would like to narrow your search and would view only job openings that meet your specified requirement, utilizing the advanced search can do this. Criteria can be job location, salary, keyword, company, job type, experience.

Christian Fiction Literature is a rapidly expanding literary field which has developed considerably over the last several years. Originally seen as the “escapist” and “not so serious” little cousin of more serious works on Biblical Theology, Fiction has developed to be so way more than just entertainment. Historians have long recognized that folks learn thru many ways. Reading facts, historic accounts, and most importantly listening to stories. Before writing there were stories, passed from generation to generation. And these stories both entertained, and taught about significant issues such as morals, effects, lessons and history. Prior to radio, tv and the internet, stories were the principle form of entertainment. Whether over the campfire, pantomimes, puppet theatre or Shakespearean sagas, we have appreciated and fallen in love with our storytellers!

In today’s arena of Christian fiction, getting consumers to acknowledge fiction, and how it can both entertain and educate is not a trivial task. This is where pro publicists may be able to assist. A publicist will work in association with the author and the publishing house to help project both the entertainment value of the book, as well as its Biblical and Scriptural worth. Publicists also find it critical to work closely with retailers, helping with the formulation and construction of campaigns that may at last communicate with patrons round the nation. Without the guidance of publicists it is all to straightforward for a retailer to miss the boat and fail to speak the benefit of a book.

We spoke with Rebeca Seitz, publicist and author at GlassRoad Public Relations, who has been liaising directly with the web services team at one progressive retailer’s Christian Fiction group. The retailing organization – deeperShopping Christian Books has created exclusive web content featuring GlassRoad PR’s most recent projects including Sisters Ink Scrapbooking Fiction and Sibella Giorello’s Geologically inspired Thrillers. The retailer and the publicist both agreed that dropping recent releases of Christian Fiction titles into a database isn’t a good way to educate consumers on the benefits of the book. It is their hope that patrons will be able to understand the inducement and the fact that the author wrote the titles – to find out the way in which the author is so electrified by their relationship with the Living God, that they represent that inspiration in the books they create and the stories that they tell.

So just how does one capture the heart of the author when you are explaining and describing their storylines? This isn’t a straightforward task. And as a retailer or a publicist, what weight should be placed on your outline vs the description the actual author would use themselves?

In creating these new web sites, deeperShopping and GlassRoad PR decided to incorporate a number of new Social Networking features. So they added in references to the author’s twitter feeds, flickr photo buckets and their facebook accounts. The result – simply spectacular. Each author has a web portal that features a biography, details of their latest books, and their latest communications from various social networking sites . The retailer even worked out how to integrate YouTube videos into the shopping experience. Now shoppers can get recent info about each workmen latest featured products alongside news from the artists themselves. The project has been a large success and takes retailing to a new level.

Sales in fiction have lifted as a result of this work, in some cases over 200% Due to the extreme success of the project, the retailer was motivated to begin a project to refresh additional content sections of their website and incorporate some of these new technologies and features.

It is our firm opinion that additional members of the Christian Booksellers Association will beging to udnerstand the benefits of social media and will incorporate these features into their retail websites. By 2010 it is expected that this will become standard operating procedure for Christian publishers.

What a tremendously interesting concept!
