[ICEN]International Career and Employment Network


General Information

This is the new and radical ICEN Home Page. New features in this page include full-text (SGML) implementation of ICEN newsletters, enabling searches on the newsletter archive. Since it is still in the development process, you might get a few "NOT FOUND" errors. Please report all errors you encounter to the designer, so that they can be corrected. Thank you for your interest and cooperation.

The ICEN resources are maintained by the International Center at Indiana University, Bloomington.This network deals with various kinds of employment issues including job postings from international companies, and also from US-based companies. Some of the topics might be only of local (Indiana University, Bloomington specific) interest. Questions regarding the ICEN can be posed to Susan Salmon, Coordinator of the International Center, or to Arijit Sengupta, editor of ICEN and maintainer of this page.

About the Network

The International Center at Indiana University frequently receives career information and notices of job opportunities. The ICEN is an electronic posting of international career and employment information, resources, and opportunities for foreign nationals seeking employment at home or abroad, as well as U.S. citizens seeking employment abroad. The information is abstracted and sent to subscribers of the ICEN on the local Indiana Unviversity networks. The original information is then filed at the Leo R. Dowling International Center. This information is distributed FREE.

ICEN Newsletter Archive

Recent issues of ICEN are maintained in sgml form for general browsing, and a restricted "quick and dirty" searching. These issues, originally in plain ascii, are presently in the process of being converted to SGML. In order to keep the ability for viewing these documents using a WWW browser, the DTD for these issues has been constructed by adding some special tags to a subset of HTML tags. Normally most browsers would ignore any tags that they do not recognize, so these special tags will not pose a viewing problem. However, if your viewer does look messed up, please use a general SGML viewer for viewing these documents. SoftQuad Panorama is such a viewer, which is freely downloadable, however, it requires Mosaic to be your primary Web browser.

Please use the full-text search facility to search for information in the newsletters for automated and more general searches.

Full-text search on ICEN Newsletters

ICEN Newsletters have recently been converted into SGML for the purpose of full-text indexing and retrieval. The automated search and posting facilities are still being development, so if you encounter a problem, please report it to us.

Go to the ICEN Search Interface.

Post on the ICEN Newsletter

If you have job information that you would like to be posted in the Newsletter, you can either do it directly from the browser, and/or you can send the relevant material to the International Center, either by e-mail or by snail-mail at:

Note that your job information will not be immediately posted, but will be held for approval. Once approved by one of the editors, your posting will go out as an electronic newsletter. If you would like to directly post your job listings into the database, Go to the ICEN Direct Post Interface.
