1. Introduction - What is OneStep Jobs?

The OneStep Jobs service is part of a suite of OneStep Services which aggregate the very latest information from top sources and present them in a easily accessible format. OneStep Jobs provides a quick means of monitoring a range of recruitment sources with minimum effort. It is important to note that OneStep Jobs contains only the latest items available from a range content providers - not access to their full content. [More about OneStep Jobs....]

2. Finding your way around Service

There are 3 main elements to the OneStep interface; Top Navigation, Feed Selection/Search area and Item Display.

Help - Main Screen Elements

By default the service displays all current Items from all available jobsfeeds in a simple listing. Job title and and a partial job description are displayed. Items from various feeds are interspersed according to source and date.

Full job details from the originating site can be viewed in a separate window by following the Job Title link.

- Details of this feed are displayed and a listing of items in the computing jobs.ac.uk feed are provided.

By selecting a cluster heading from the scrollbox it is possible to view the contents of a particular cluster of feeds which cover a similar subject area.

Example:
-Select the cluster heading ENGINEERING JOBSFEEDS

6. Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "What is an RSS Feed?"
Put very simply RSS is a format for easily sharing content on the web. An RSS feed (also known as an RSS file or RSS channel) consists of a list of items, each of which contains a title, description and a link to a web page. RSS can stand for 'Rich Site Summary', 'RDF Site Summary' or 'Really Simple Syndication' depending on who you ask and which version they are speaking about. [More on RSS...]
