New Employment Web Site Opens

Jobs4Gems.com (www.jobs4gems.com), Kansas City, Mo., an Internet company launched in September 2000, is designed to connect employees and employers in the jewelry industry. The idea came from Anna Cranfill, president of Jobs4Gems.com, and Phillip Danforth, both of whom worked with Helzberg Diamonds before Danforth launched Employees U Trust, a pre-employment integrity screening interview company.

Jobs4Gems.com delivers résumés to employers in several ways. Corporations that pay to list jobs, as they would in a classified advertisement, receive the résumés of job seekers who list on the site. Job seekers who want less visibility can send a direct e-mail with an attached résumé to the listed company
