This was an exciting week at ERE. After months of work by the team, especially our development team of Jim Dalton & Hunter Ford, we finally launched the new ERE Community! Hopefully by now, you have had the chance to check it out, update your profile, and start networking. If you haven’t already, come on over, and also check out David’s post from the other day where he introduces some of the new features of the new ERE Community.
We also took an important step to help connect those of you currently out of work with positions available in our industry. From now until August 1, we have dropped the price of a 30-day job posting on EREJobs from $200 to just $25. And keeping even a $25 fee is not a financial decision. We want to make it low enough for anyone to post a job, however keep away the spammers who would take advantage of the situation if we made it free. So if you are looking for recruiters or looking for your next opportunity, check out EREJobs today.
Here is a rundown of what else is going on around the ERE world this week:
