Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Down and out in the Rhondda Valley? Check out that Call Centre in Milton Keynes. Unemployed in Sheffield? Become a cleaner in Weybridge. The Government is opening a monster.com-style -- but much more downmarket -- recruitment site. This will feature every job vacancy currently listed on High Street state-run Job Centres. Now there will be no excuse for people to stay at home on benefit and not taking jobs on offer, Chancellor Gordon Brown said. Except jobs (there are currently one million vacancies in Britain) are often not where unemployed people are. And low-rent jobs don't pay enough for people to move from employment black spots to employment hot spots. The Government is pumping in £18 million into the new service, most of which looks likely to fund public access terminals. Job hunters can also log-in from home to see what vacancies there are and can register CVs for prospective employers to wade through. David Blunkett, Secretary of State for Education and Employment, commented: "Modern IT facilities have a major role to play in backing our drive to get people off welfare and into work. The new service is the shape of things to come, with easy access, tailored data provision and a two way search process involving employers as well as employees." EDS is to be lead contractor for the programme. The services giant is not exactly a household name when it comes to Web site design, so it would seem reasonable safe to infer it will appoint a subbie to handle this part of the business. ® Daily Net Finance News from The Register
