SEPARATED EXECS GET HIGH TECH HELP

 SEPARATED EXECS GET HIGH TECH HELP
 SAN DIEGO, April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- An innovative computerized job


search system is significantly boosting the employment efforts of some separated executives in the San Diego area.
 The system is called Career Search and it can do in minutes what usually takes many tedious hours: identify potential employers across the country. It is being offered by Right Associates of San Diego to departed executives as a key part of the employment strategy the firm helps the executives develop.
 "We're finding it to be an excellent tool for executives, some of whom have never had to look for work before," said John Ruehlin and Michele Strey of Right Associates. "Today many job opportunities are at the smaller companies which typically are less well known and harder to target, which is why Career Search's high tech assistance is so valuable.
 "Career Search helps executives to quickly uncover relevant employment data that normally requires many hours to find, as well as giving them a focus by zeroing in on specific industries." Ruehlin noted that getting focused is one of the initial challenges laid-off executives face. "When they first come into our office, they are usually confused about where to start. Career Search helps them in a step-by-step fashion begin a logical and targeted employment campaign."
 Right Associates is a human resource consulting firm specializing in outplacement and career management guidance. It is employing Career Search as a quick-start way for executives caught in corporate downsizing to find employment leads. The firm also provides executives with counseling, interview training, resume writing and administrative services.
 At the heart of the Career Search system is a database of nearly 180,000 U.S. companies. The data is not only extensive, it is updated every month. Equally important, this information can be accessed easily, quickly and customized to the user's needs. In minutes, the system can produce a list of companies that appropriately match an executive's background and interests. Key information on each company also is provided, such as its size, business, sales volume and contact names. An otherwise tedious effort-identifying industries, companies, locations, addresses and contacts -- becomes an efficient process.
 Executives can actually pinpoint their employment search to within five miles of a specific zip code or make it as broad as the "Midwest." The search usually begins with the employment seeker identifying a specific industry, then geography. The remaining parameters are "profile," which identifies companies based on size and "contact" which identifies company executives. When each of these parameters are established, the executive receives a list of companies which fit the criteria. The system also can provide customized letters and envelopes addressed to companies selected by the user.
 "It still takes hard work and networking to find the right position but Career Search can significantly multiply one's efficiency and effectiveness," it will maximize rather than replace traditional employment efforts.
