AUCKLAND, New Zealand – August 25, 2009 – As part of NetApp’s cloud computing news announcements today, NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) highlighted its close relationships with industry-leading Information Technology (IT) vendors and enterprise Value Added Resellers (VARs) to provide enterprise customers with the technology and solutions needed to build their cloud infrastructures, including global service providers and system integrators that are leveraging NetApp technology to create cloud service offerings for their own enterprise customers.

Earlier this month, a young Auckland professional made headlines for using Facebook to try and land his dream job. Edward McKnight used ads on the social media site to target ASB staff as a way of applying for the role of youth and innovation sponsorship manager at the bank. And while McKnight has yet to be offered a job at ASB, it’s a sign that the traditional recruitment process of sending in a CV and crossing your fingers may be in for a shake-up. Hoping to do just that is the new recruitment platform PreviewMe. Set to have its beta version go live early next month, the website hopes to reduce the pain points of both candidates and employers by introducing video to the recruitment process.
