Young professionals seeking to create a networking profile online may want to check out Koda.us. Similar to XING and LinkedIn, Koda works with a number of employers looking to hire new talent. But instead of catering to those with a few years of work experience, Koda helps employers hire recent college grads who are looking for a little extra help in starting their careers. When creating a profile at Koda, the job seeker can use photos, links, and video in addition to a resume to catch a recruiter’s attention. Companies have their own profile pages for job seekers to learn more about their work environment. Visit koda.us for more information.
More 7s From Microsoft
Windows Mobile from Microsoft (MSFT) is getting a makeover... and now we have a better idea of when the new version is going to be released. Microsoft says it’s set to start selling its Windows Phone 7 in time for the 2010 holiday season. The phone will feature the ability to connect with Microsoft’s Xbox 360 gaming console and Xbox Live, as well as working with Bing and the Zune music service. The icons on the phone’s touchscreen are larger than those on Apple’s iPhone, and the Start screen can be customized to bring you up-to-date content, from the weather forecast to your Facebook status. Visit Windows Backstage to learn more.
