Improved Portfolio Summary Report
The Portfolio Summary Report has been improved so that you can now display exactly what you are looking for. With a few clicks of the mouse you can choose to display only your journal entries or assessment results. With these new customization options, you should be able to display only what you want - and hopefully save your printer from using a few extra sheets of paper.
Improved Video Player
Over the last few weeks, California CareerZone has been receiving many new users and, as a result, some of you may have experienced the site operating at slower-than-normal speeds. We do apologize for that, but we are happy to say that we have made some improvements to the system which will allow us to smoothly handle this new traffic. Thank you for your patience, and we hope you continue to enjoy using California CareerZone.
Job Seeking Tool Improvements
Today, we made some changes to the Job Tools which we hope you will enjoy. First, we added the ability to download your documents in Microsoft Word format in addition to PDF. You can find the new link in the menu bar when you view any of the tools.
Next, in an effort to make them easier to use, we tweaked the layout and removed the drop down menus from the bottom of each section in the Resume, Cover Letter and Reference List. You can now find all of the same functionality in the "gear" menu to the right of each section heading.
We feel that this change will help make designing each tool look and feel more like the finished product and give you far more options in helping you create the perfect Resume, Cover Letter or Reference List.
