Internet Resources for Job Hunters: Vidhya Srinivasan
Job hunters who think of the Internet primarily as a
place to look for job postings may well be taking a shortcut that
leads nowhere. "Job seekers should not go only to job sites,"
Internet will not get you a job," she continues, "but it will
lead you to a job."
Srinivasan gives a free talk on "Job Searching on the World Wide
Web" on Tuesday, July 8, at 1 p.m. at the Lawrence branch of the
Mercer County Library. Call 609-989-6920 for more information.
Insatiably curious, Srinivasan has ferreted out a bounty of websites
that help job hunters with everything from resume preparation to
to salary negotiation. She began mining the Internet as a college
student in Chennai, India, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in
applied mathematics before going on earn an advanced degree in human
resources management. Stints with an Indian branch of an Australian
bank and with a recruitment firm followed.
Two years ago, Srinivasan moved to the United States, where her new
husband, Ramesh Lakshminarayanan, works as a software engineer for
Wyeth Pharmaceuticals. The two met through their families. "It
was an arranged marriage," she says. And it has worked out well.
"It is interesting to know a person more after marriage,"
she says, explaining that she and her husband enjoy learning more
about each other every day.
But while Srinivasan’s marriage was in keeping with tradition, her
courtship had 21st century elements. "We communicated through
E-mail," she says with a laugh.
In everything she does, Srinivasan says, she seeks to be innovative
and creative. This shows in her adaptation to her new homeland, where
she not only gives lectures at the library, but also teaches computer
skills at SeniorNet. Using skills she obtained after becoming
in web design, she works on websites for both Young Achievers and
for the Association of Women in Science.
Almost ready to head for full-time employment herself, Srinivasan
shares these strategies for making full use of the Internet in landing
the perfect job:
and some small companies too, take their mission statements very
— at least in theory. A job candidate who can talk the talk has
an edge. Go to a company website not just to look for open positions,
but to scrutinize its mission statement — and more. To what
does the company contribute? How strongly does it value diversity?
Into what countries is it expanding?

insurance adjusters in area code 08540 (Princeton) make between

$42,186 and $61,839, and that editors in Princeton Junction make
$46,602 and $63,824.

education, experience, and company size. A custom salary evaluation,
taking all of these factors into account, is available for a fee.

asking for some basic employer preferences. Answer, for example, that

Starbucks, Medtronic, FedEx, Charles Schwab, Agilent Technologies,
and Goldman Sachs could be a good fit.
The site contains lots more for job hunters — and for those who
soon will be job hunters. There is a 12-question quiz to help the
nervous determine how likely it is that they are about to be fired.
Should the worst happen, there are also lists of the best companies

Experts — volunteers all — are ranked by users on the clarity,
thoroughness, and timeliness of their responses. Srinivasan has always
gotten the information she was seeking in less than 24 hours.
This site could well be used by job hunters looking for information
on a company, an industry, a locale, or a trend. But, adds Srinivasan,
it is also a fine networking tool. Those asking questions tend to
strike up an E-acquaintance with those who answer them.
Internet friendships can also grow up among subscribers to news groups
focusing on jobs as well as on any number of general interest chat
sites. If marriages can be made on the Internet, why not job matches
She and her husband have built up a list of some 100 premier sites
with the help of their friends, who circulate links, constantly add
new finds, and share the wealth. In addition to talking about the
best way to use these resources during her upcoming talk, Srinivasan
is creating links to the sites for the Mercer County Library

Levier says there will be ample time for questions. He anticipates
that the number one question will be "why is the student
(in MBA programs) only 29 percent?"
A much-cited study, published in 2000, supplies some of the answers.
"Women and the MBA: Gateway to Opportunity" is a two-year
study undertaken by Catalyst, a non-profit research and advisory
that works to advance women in business professions, and the
of Michigan Business School. Sponsors of the study include Chase
Eli Lilly, Ford, Whirlpool, and Proctor & Gamble. The paucity of women
in MBA programs drew this attention because those who hold these
make up a good share of the talent pool for corporate leadership.
Careers in corporate management are among the most lucrative and,
at the top levels, confer power that extends into the community and
While no more rigorous than law school or medical
business school is different in a way that is key to women. Other
professional schools draw most of their students directly from
but business schools prefer that their students spend time in the
real world before enrolling. In many of the most elite programs, and
in virtually all of the Executive MBA programs, significant work
is a requirement.
A recent article in the Wall Street Journal’s CollegeJournal explains
why this timetable is a problem for women. "Students typically
are about 28 years old when they enroll for their MBA degree, creating
what one business school official calls `a biological collision.’
As they near 30, many women are focusing on marriage and children
and are reluctant to begin a demanding MBA program. Medical and law
schools attract more women, in part because they tend to begin right
after college, while most business schools seek applicants with at
least four or five years work experience."
Beyond less-than-ideal timing, business schools often are shunned
by women because of math fear. In many female minds, business equals
math, and math is the enemy. At a premier business school, Chicago’s
Graduate School of Business, where only 23 percent of students are
female, Dean Don Martin, quoted by CollegeJournal, says "We’re
a full-menu school offering 13 concentrations including general
and entrepreneurship, but people think only quant jocks come
While women have pushed aside the glass ceiling over the operating
room and the judicial bench, they appear to lack the tools — or
the will — to climb into the corporate suite in any great numbers.
The Catalyst/University of Michigan study found that nearly one-third
of all women MBA graduates and nearly half of all African American
women graduates find the business school culture "aggressive and
competitive." The women reported that they often could not relate
to case studies, and were discouraged to find so few women mentors.
After the study was published, many business schools launched efforts
to up their female enrollment. But they found that targeted marketing
was not enough. The CollegeJournal reports that "snagging more
women has been a maddening seesaw experience for many schools."
After an aggressive push to enroll more women, Southern Methodist
University upped its percentage of female MBA students to 36 percent,
only to see it fall again — to 28 percent. Stanford University
jumped to 41 percent after the study was published, only to drop back
to 38 percent.
Keeping up the push to enroll women is worth the effort, the
of Michigan study concludes. Those who earn the degree, while often
still uneasy in corporate careers, generally report that the degree
is a valuable asset.

This challenge immediately divides its citizenry into camps.
growth around the Princeton area has been exponential and shows little
sign of slowing. But the idea of transforming the village of nostalgic
memory into an urbanized center is taking some getting used to.
Inherent in the process of city living is the problem of traffic.
Cars require ample roadways and storage (preferably not on the same
strip of macadam). In the late l980s plans were developed to replace
traffic lights with eight new overpasses on Route 1. With some of
the work done, traffic is moving more smoothly, but rush hours still
feature 5-mile-an-hour crawls and fender benders aplenty. As for car
storage, one has only to witness the library expansion for which
has been the prime problem. Parking is a problem for the hospital,
too, and has long been a major headache for merchants. Yet any mention
of a new parking garage causes an outcry, complete with lawn signs
proclaiming that Princeton "is Not a city!"

type of planning can go smoothly, and the town can retain its
if constant community input is solicited, he insists.
Quality housing is one area in which Hillier sees a desperate need
for new zoning. Any Princetonian satisfied with the status quo might
want to take a walk down Witherspoon Street at the start of the work
day, and watch the dozen or more people who head for work out of each
rundown house. "For the landlord, these houses are not worth the
capitalization," explains Hillier. "Roughly 20 percent of
any building’s value is the land cost. So, to generate any income
stream, these people must be crammed into these houses."
He suggests that if zoning allowed three story structures on these
properties, apartments could be built, and the family unit cost could
be cut by one-sixth. The structure would become worth the lot.

around the Princeton Shopping Center, Palmer Square, and the stretch
of Route 206 near Bayard Lane. In the past, several opportunities
were missed through lack of forethought. Hillier laughs and points
out that it is currently impossible to cross Princeton without making
a left turn — the prime initiator of traffic jams. Today,

July 4th, one of the biggest getaway weekends of the
year, is upon us. It brings, as usual, pleas for sane driving and
projections of expected highway fatalities. Yet, a new study indicates
that a drive to the shore can be a lot safer than a drive to work
— especially for those whose offices line Route 1.
With 7,329 crashes and 20 fatalities in 2001, Route 1 leads the list
of New Jersey’s most dangerous highways, according to a study
by the Federal Highway Administration, the National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration, and the National Motor Carrier Association.
The next most dangerous road, Route 9, did not even come close to
Route 1’s record for vehicular mayhem. That road saw 4,114 crashes
and 12 fatalities during 2001. In fourth place was another road that
passes through Princeton, Route 206, on which there were 2,726
and 15 fatalities. Close behind was another area artery, Route 130,
on which there were 2,209 accidents and 7 fatalities.
Danger on New Jersey’s highways has spurred passage of a "Safety
First" initiative. Passed on June 25, the legislation doubles
fines for speeding and aggressive driving on the state’s most
roads. It also increases fines for out-of-state overweight trucks,
and earmarks cash collected from fines for the establishment of a
Highway Safety Fund to be used for highway safety programs and
by state and local police departments.
Other safety measures on the horizon, or already in place, include
highlighting the Aggressive Driver Hotline. Signs on Route 1 are
exhorting drivers to report aggression by dialing #77 on their cell
phones. (But one has to wonder how hunting for a pencil, getting close
enough to read a wild driver’s license plate, and dialing a phone
will add to highway safety.)
In addition to publicizing the bad-driver hotline, there are plans
to expand the 100-mile safety barrier program, allocate $20 million
for engineering and technological highway improvements, add 500 miles
of raised pavement reflectors over the next two years, and expand
driver education programs.
While the new report puts Route 1 squarely in the spotlight, the news
is not as bad as it could be for Princeton-area commuters. The long
route, which runs through more than half of the state, is the most
dangerous. But no section of Route 1 between Trenton and New Brunswick
made the list of the top 10 most dangerous 5-mile stretches of roadway
in the state. A team of reporters from News 12 New Jersey analyzed
accident data and determined that the McCarter Highway in Newark takes
that honor, claiming the lives of 24 of the 748 people who died on
New Jersey’s roads in 2002. The Garden State Parkway in Woodbridge
and a stretch of Routes 1 and 9 in Linden tied for second place with
19 traffic deaths each.
Meanwhile, some are placing blame for Route 1’s woes on trucks. Trucks
were involved in 35 percent of the accidents along that road, a
percentage — by six percentage points — than were involved
in fatalities on the New Jersey Turnpike during the same period. There
is some sentiment in favor of banning trucks from Route 1 unless they
are making local deliveries. It is thought that some trucks choose
the road, already clogged with commuters and shoppers, as a way to
beat tolls on the Turnpike. While some favor the ban, others point
out that the trucks could well just divert to other roads, roads like
Route 206, which passes through Lawrence, where residents, worried
that trucks are shaking their historic home apart, have organized
to move the multi-wheel vehicles elsewhere.
The debate will continue, as traffic — from both cars and trucks
— promises to only get worse. The new report on some of its most
serious effects is sobering — for both vacation drivers and
Best to be alert and aware, no matter what the route.
The New Jersey Economic Development Authority has
a Brownfields Redevelopment Office to make it easier for
developers, and businesses to access financial resources available
from the EDA for the remediation and redevelopment of brownfield
in the state.
"The new office is an outgrowth of Governor James E.
announcement to consolidate brownfield financing programs within the
EDA and supports the state’s commitment to provide easy access to
the financing tools that can help municipalities, developers, and
businesses clean up contaminated and underutilized sites and make
them usable again," EDA Executive Director
says in a prepared statement.
The EDA Brownfields Redevelopment Office can be reached at
or by E-mail at email@example.com You can also learn more
about EDA brownfield programs at www.njeda.com
In early May Governor McGreevey signed legislation appropriating an
additional $40 million to replenish the Hazardous Discharge Site
Fund (HDSRF), which is managed by the EDA in conjunction with the
New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). The program
offers grants and loans to municipalities and private parties for
investigation and remediation of contaminated sites.
Under the HDSRF program, municipalities may apply for grants and loans
up to $2 million per year for investigation and remedial activities
for properties they own or for which they hold a tax sale certificate
and have a comprehensive plan or realistic opportunity to develop
within a three-year period. Private parties required to perform
activities and individuals who want to conduct such actions
may qualify for loans up to $1 million per year if they are unable
to obtain private funding.
The Brownfields Redevelopment Office also administers two recently
introduced lending programs that make up to $10 million in short-term
loans available to developers to offset predevelopment funding gaps
for projects in older communities and to meet funding requirements
for brownfield site remediation.
One program provides smart growth predevelopment loans and guarantees
up to $1 million for noncontamination-related site preparation costs,
including, but not limited to, land assemblage, demolition, removal
of materials and debris, and engineering costs. Eligible projects
include commercial, industrial, office, and mixed-use projects in
urban and developed suburban communities. Projects must have municipal
support and be part of a local development plan.
The second program, the Brownfields Redevelopment Loan Program,
developers who have a signed Brownfield Reimbursement Agreement with
the Commerce and Economic Growth Commission to borrow up to $750,000
for up-front, interim remediation funding. The anticipated brownfield
reimbursement must be pledged to pay principal and interest on the
Financing under both programs is available for up to three years at
below-market interest rates, adjusted quarterly with a 3 percent
The maximum amount that can be lent to a single borrower under the
two programs is $1 million.
The EDA Brownfields Redevelopment Office also administers the
Underground Storage Tank Remediation, Upgrade and Closure Program
in conjunction with the DEP. Business owners and operators who have
fewer than 10 petroleum underground storage tanks in New Jersey, have
a net worth of less than $2 million and cannot obtain a commercial
loan for all or a portion of the costs may qualify for 100 percent
of the eligible project costs. Homeowners in need of remediation due
to a discharge from a home heating oil tank may also qualify for
The Brownfields Redevelopment Office will also be able to connect
businesses and developers to the various EDA low-interest bond, loan
and guarantee programs available for the development of projects once
cleanup has been completed.
