Dear Site Manager:

We would like to profile your site in our publications:

+ WEDDLE's Annual Guides to Employment Web-Sites are
published by the American Management Association in 2
editions--one for recruiters and one for job seekers. They are
the most widely read guides to online employment resources
in the world.

+ WEDDLE's Newsletter for Successful Online Recruiting
appears monthly with the latest industry news, research based
tips on online recruitment strategy and profiles of new and
revised sites. It is the most widely distributed print newsletter
about online recruitment in the world.

WEDDLE's Guides and Newsletters are written by Peter Weddle. He is:
+ the online recruiting columnist for The Wall Street Journal
+ the online job search columnist for CNNfn.com
+ a former recruiter turned author and speaker.

Each WEDDLE's profile will feature your site with accurate,
up-to-date information about its services and fees so that
agency recruiters, recruiting consultants, in-house recruiters,
Employment Managers and HR practitioners have the best
available picture of your capabilities and advantages.

To have your site profiled, simply complete the questionnaire
below (it takes about 10 minutes) and send it by e-mail to
WEDDLE's at siteprofile@weddles.com. There are absolutely
NO fees involved.

Additional information is available about WEDDLE's at its
Web-site, http://www.weddles.com.

We know you're busy, but we hope you'll take a moment to
complete the questionnaire so that we can showcase your site
to recruiters and HR professionals all over the United States

Many Thanks!
