graduate-jobs.com Launches Accessibility Site
The job board graduate-jobs.com has undergone an overhaul with the launch of an updated look along with a W3C AA Accessibility rating.
W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) aims to encourage web developers to make their sites more user-friendly for those with disabilities by publishing a range of guidelines to help with the development process.
graduate-jobs.coms development teams determination to meet the guidelines means the new site is easy to use for the blind and partially sighted due to its complete compatibility with screen readers software that describes the various elements of a website to the user as they scroll through it.
The AA Accessibility rating awarded by W3C makes graduate-jobs.com the only job board in the UK with such a credential and therefore easily accessible to users with disabilities.
As W3C say, conforming to their guidelines not only makes a website more user friendly for those with disabilities but benefits all users. The sites fresh interface not only looks better but improves greatly on navigation and ease of use.
Adding jobs to the site and CV searching has never been easier than it is now on graduate-jobs.com said Operations Director Gerry Wyatt, plus weve got some great new features which make both the graduates and the recruiters experience much smoother and crucially, more effective.The new site is a huge step forwards for graduate-jobs.com and the graduate recruitment market, says Gerry, It gives recruiters even more power to not only pinpoint the best and most suitable candidates but also adds great value to their diversity and inclusion agendas. At the same time this move increases significantly the job board service available to users with disabilities.
