The internet’s first great achievement was putting in place ubiquitous connections: people to people, people to information, and information to companies and institutions. Having spanned the globe and linked billions of people together, now comes an altogether more crucial phase: making the information gleaned from this vast, ever-expanding network relevant, personal and effective.
Mendeley Careers is at the forefront of this trend. Soon it will feature its first recommender function that makes looking for the next job suggestions more convenient than ever. Its unique algorithms will leverage the Elsevier ecosystem to provide tailored recommendations. It will no longer be necessary to knock on opportunity’s door, opportunities will arrive in your inbox, matched to your profile and interests.
The millions of Mendeley users who have signed up for notifications will automatically receive these jobs; those who haven’t need only click on the downward pointing arrow next to their name on the top right hand corner of the screen, select Settings and Privacy, then click Notifications on the menu on the left.
Heather Williams, Product Manager for Mendeley Careers stated, “Mendeley Careers is already the world’s largest job search engine in the science, technology and engineering fields; Careers’ Suggest is the next step forward to connect the brightest minds to positions that let them pursue their passions.”
