Need a Meeting Planner? A redesign of www.meetingjobs.com - a Web site that specializes in employment offerings in the meeting and event business, launched three years ago - offers some nifty new features. When employers post jobs, they now also get an in-box to check for resumes. They can also conduct searches by keyword criteria, selecting by title, geographic area, salary range, or just about anything else, and search the site's database of nearly 1,000 resumes. They can then send an e-mail message to the owners of the resumes that match the criteria. There is also a place for companies to sell the benefits of working for their organizations.
The site is getting about 9,000 hits a day, according to Dawn Penfold, CMP, president of the site's operator, The Meeting Candidate Network. The job listing service (but not the additional resources) is also available in a slightly different format at www.mpoint.com
