The Internet's main oversight agency gave preliminary approval last month for the creation of a new domain name, .jobs, that would make it easier for employers to promote job openings on their Web sites. The initial plan says that sites with a .jobs suffix would point directly to Web pages where jobs are posted. Example: Joe's Pizza could keep job listings at www.joespizza. jobs, rather than require potential job candidates to navigate the company's home page to find job listings. Look for the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (www.icann.org) to give final approval for .jobs sometime in 2005.
