My job on the Web
To find a first job or make a career change, everyone has their own method. You could wait for an employer to call, but unless you have a rock-solid resume and work experience, it could be a long wait. Going job hunting is like setting off on an expedition. The decisive moment is that first step, when you decide to try your chance. Afterwards, its just a question of where you want go and how to get there.
In the last few years, the number of major corporations recruiting on-line has rocketed upwards. Recruiting through the printed press is becoming less predominant, as Web-based job sites flourish.
Submitting your CV, creating your personal page and alerting you of new job offers that fit your profile are just some of the tasks that can be done by specialized job search agents. Whether you are looking for long or short-term employment, in technology, building or industry: almost every sector has availabilities. Some specialized search tools even help you find work experience placements or a summer job. Agents' alerting capabilities means that you will be in the know as soon as the job offer that suits you is published.
Perhaps you're something of a globe-trotter and you're thinking about working abroad? Certain metaseekers know no limits. In Europe, Asia or the Americas, there's a job waiting for you somewhere in the world.
Recruiting via the Internet is here to stay, according to all the latest reports. It represents a low-cost solution for companies, and a world of opportunity for job seekers.

"Lernout & Hauspie in Belgium has been declared bankrupt by the commercial court," a company spokesman said.
L&H decided not to appeal against the decision handed down by Judge Michel Handschoewerker in the court of Ieper, the western Belgian town where it has its European headquarters. Company representatives will meet with the five trustees and three commissioners appointed by the court to oversee the disposal of the company's assets.
L&H was a pioneer in the technology that allows people to give computers spoken commands. Last year a scandal about inflated sales figures in Asia erupted and forced the company to seek bankruptcy protection in Belgium and the United States.

> What's up Robo Doc?
A five-minute vision test using a laptop computer with a touch-sensitive screen can be used on Earth and in space to help diagnose the onset of eye diseases and even certain types of brain tumors.
With one eye covered, a person sits in front of a computer screen divided into a grid. The subject stares at a central spot on the touch-sensitive screen and, using a finger, outlines missing areas of the grid. The computer records, processes and displays a 3-D image of the subject's visual field. The test for each eye takes about 4 to 5 minutes.
