~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The ProZ.com directory now supports search for more types of services.

It is now possible to search for different types of interpreting services, and to search for users with experience in sales, translation project management, vendor management, desktop publishing, MT post-editing and so on.

If you offer any of these services, be sure to update your profile accordingly: https://www.proz.com/settings/

In response to use requests, it is also now possible to search CV's by keyword. (Provided those CVs are public.) Consider using this feature to zero in on candidates who have worked for a given company previously and therefore may be knowledgeable in that company's products.
