The most significant change is the new searchable Database of staff and employers - it will take a while for visitors to get used to it but eventually we expect it to become even more popular than the Job Forums which will continue to stay on the site for as long as people keep using them.
While employers and employees can post details of themselves or the job they are seeking to fill; someone posting a CV can actually ‘attach’ a document (e.g. a pre-written resume to their profile) and their photo, which is a nice little feature.
The Podcasts too are new and something we aim to continue. We will also be adding advice on C.V. and resume writing and job interview techniques.
We’ve also started sourcing the internet for articles that are related to all things Butling.
The Butler Blog has been ranting for a few months now and tends to be a more personalized and light hearted look at the Domestic Staff world. You can comment on the Blog postings too. Be patient though as we do vet comments to avoid total negativity.
SO! We’ve gone interactive on you. We hope that you will approve of the new additions.
Yes we know that there are more advertisements than in the past but that’s how we keep this site operating as a totally free service for our visitors. We are also up for a laugh on a regular basis!
What’s on the way?
A Social Networking site for domestic staff - we’re on facebook already but will soon be setting up our very own butbook site:-)
But wait there’s more! Also on the way is our story submission site - Butit. By signing up to Butit you’ll be able with one click to save/bookmark and share your favorite web sites / pages / blog posts with your peers.
If you know how Digg, or Stumble Upon work then you’ll get the idea. If not, well you’ll soon get the hang of it. In essence it will be a place for us to visit to find out the latest on the web re our niche - domestic staffing.
.What else? Crikey there’s loads more - we’re combining the Nanny-site.com with the Bureau - their web site is a bit Mary Poppins, and full of bugs, so we’re giving them a new lease of life via their own nanny section of the BB site - which is work in progress....
How does that sound?
