BNET.com Helps Business Managers Navigate Shifting Job Market With New Editorial Features

Business Web Site Rolls Out Summer Editorial Series, Including "The Return of the Crummy Job" and "The New Rules for Dressing

BNET (www.bnet.com), a Web site that provides information and tools to help business managers succeed at work, today announced two innovative features that are geared to provide insight on surviving the weakening job market. The two in-depth editorial series, “The Return of the Crummy Job” and “The New Rules for Dressing for Success,” include several articles and online videos for business managers who want to stay successful through an economic downturn.

With daily news reports of increasing gas prices, food shortages, and unemployment on the rise, it’s no surprise that employees are nervous about job security. In past years, workers benefitted from a strong economy and had their choice to switch jobs, demand benefits, and take career risks. Now, with a weakening economy, BNET continues to be a resource for workers looking for the best tools to reset their workplace expectations and demands. BNET offers managers solutions-oriented content and online video to meet the shifting workplace environment.

“With the economy slowing down, people need to know how to deal with layoffs,” said Jeff Davis, executive editor at BNET. “Keeping your job or finding a new one are priorities right now for employees. And managers are trying to figure out how to keep up morale and share larger workloads.”
