I hope everyone has had a great week of surveying! We are finally back on track with the community and traffic is up over 1100% from this time last month. We just accepted our 22,200th member to the community just a couple of days ago! I just wanted to give you all a few important updates about new features and the fulfillment of several requests made by members inside the community. Updates are always posted to our Twitter Page and Facebook Page so be sure to follow them.
Also, if you appreciate the work I am doing and want to help the community pay the bills, please consider donating in any amount you can afford, here.
Updates for Those Looking for Surveying Jobs
The new Get Hired section of the site now allows you to record a Video Resume and upload it for recruiters and employers.
And if you truly want a surveying job, follow the instructions on this page to make your search easier and make yourself simpler to find by an employer.
If you are Seeking Employment, make sure you set your Member Status as seeking employment to show up here.
We've developed several new apps for helping everyone easily post photos and discussions from the field inside their local hubs. These apps are free anc can be added to your phones home screen for quick access. I imagine the Surveyor Dictionary app may be one that everyone will like to use and contribute to.
A new app is currently in development to make it easy to find available deals on Survey Equipment and software and should be available next week. Equipment Hunter presently has close to 3500 deals to check out.
Getting To Know the Community and Who's With Us
Our Getting Started section has a growing collection of tutorials for how to do things on the site based on member feedback.
The Community profiles section gives you an overview of members, self categorized.
Are you the Administrator of a Hub? Look inside Your Hubs to see if there is one that you started. If you started a group or were an admin of a group inside the old site you have control! Check out this video to learn how to make changes and add pages to your hub. Take a look at the new Land Mentor hub and take a look at what this innovative software company is doing with their hub. Another great hub to check out is Superior Surveyor Services, where you can find deals on all sorts of equipment and gear.
You may have noticed the My Community Awards section on your profile. What this does is calculate and attach points to your community profile for contributions you have made to the community in the form of commenting, posts, photos, blogs, inviting members, etc. You will soon be able to trade points for real gear, software and perks. So post often and get your points up!
The Best is Yet to Come! Thanks for all of your contributions and participation inside the community. Land surveying gets better everyday because of your passions.
Have a great weekend everyone!
