Abstract: In this paper we propose several significant advances in online employment services. We address issues such as privacy, interaction, and scalability to worldwide services. The details of each user are managed in completely relevant-to-service formats and both jobseekers & employers have considerable control over just how many of their own personal details are visible at any time. Perhaps most interestingly, virtual connections are maintained that support the various stages of negotiation in iterative, computer-supported cycles.
Keywords: e-commerce, interactive negotiations, online employment services
