An independent council of eight HR professionals voted to recommend the approval of an expansion of the “.jobs” top-level domain on June 3, 2010.
Following up on its meetings of April 9, 14, 28 and 30, 2010, the .jobs Policy Development Process (PDP) Council met on June 3, 2010, and by a 7-1 vote passed the following motion to approve an amendment proposed by Employ Media that would allow use of the .jobs top-level domain with non-company names:
"Having considered whether the Employ Media proposed amendmentwill serve the needs of the international human resource management community, the .jobs PDP Council finds that approval of the Proposed Amendment would serve the needs of the international human resource management community, and therefore hereby approves the Proposed Amendment, recognizing that it is the sole obligation and responsibility of Employ Media to implement the Proposed Amendment in a manner that complies with the .jobs Charter, with all ICANN [Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers] rules and regulations, and with all applicable laws and regulations."
Prior to passing the above motion, the council requested, reviewed and discussed survey research of HR professionals and public comments on the proposed amendment.Minutes of the above-referenced council meetings were to be posted on www.policy.jobs soon after the vote.
The Policy Development Process for .jobs requires that before any council-approved proposed amendment be implemented, it be reviewed and approved separately by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Executive Committee and by Employ Media. Subsequent to the June 3, 2010, council approval of the above motion, the motion was in fact separately reviewed and discussed by the SHRM Executive Committee and by Employ Media and was approved by both.
In allowing the council-approved proposed amendment to be implemented, the SHRM Executive Committee concurred with the determination of the council, supported by the survey research and public comment, that the proposed amendment would serve the needs of the international human resource management community.
