At a time when unemployment rates for information professionals are rising, and corporate information centres are being axed, Dialog and Hoover’s have each introduced services designed to help. Dialog (http://www.dialog.com) is waiving standard Dialog start-up and service fees, offering free Dialindex and throwing in a 10% discount on Dialog usage to librarians and information professionals who have recently lost their jobs (http://digbig.com/5banak). The aim of the programme is to help these professionals use Dialog's powerful resources do their job search, retain and develop their search skills and even do some independent consulting while they look for full employment. Free access and discounts can be used for up to 12 months. The new programme is similar to a partnership Dialog has with the Association of Independent Information Professionals (AIIP). Librarians and information professionals who have become unemployed since September 2008 are eligible. Hoover’s (http://www.hoovers.com) approach is different. As part of its “Expert Advice for Job Seekers” on its website (http://digbig.com/5banam), it has announced the launch of the new Hoover's Jobseeker Report, which aims to give job candidates a competitive advantage by helping them develop unique insight into targeted companies and industries as they conduct employment searches and prepare for interviews. The reports provide interview preparation questions and an overview of business challenges and opportunities from First Research industry profiles and also include company contact information and description, top competitors, recent company news and announcements, stock performance and key financials. The reports cost up to US$129.
