Hybrid Fuel Savings Without Changing Your Car
DATE: 19 JAN 2005 - Press Release  

People can decrease gas consumption creatively by changing jobs instead of cars, finding work closer to home.

Washington DC. April 14th, 2008 -- As gas prices continue ever higher, is encouraging an alternative to a new hybrid; a new job. The new free job site recently launched a neighborhood job search, promoting the idea of a career move as an environmental act. The new tool, at lists every local job within a specific zip code from across the web. Most job sites use a 20 mile radius to locate jobs. Employers can participate by posting their jobs without cost.

"Reducing your CO2 emissions doesn't have to cost anything" says Smuz creator, Paul Pickthorne. "In fact, finding a new job closer to home can come with a pay raise. With less time in traffic and more at home, there is a real opportunity to make quality of life improvements both personally and globally. I think that finding a great commute is an easy way for us all to make a difference."

Mr Pickthorne personally drives one of the least fuel efficient vehicles on the road, a V12 Jaguar, but consumes less than a gallon of gas a week. He works from home and lives in a neighborhood where his daily needs are within walking distance. He admits he is lucky to be in that situation but points out that we can all make a contribution. "When I used to drive all day in my old job, I drove a Diesel Mercedes running on waste vegetable oil so I think I have a few CO2 points in the bank!"

Many employers are finding that attracting candidates with a short commute helps with difficult to fill vacancies, especially in congestion heavy markets like the DC Metro area. In many cases, people with rare skills or security clearances can be persuaded to move for something metro accessible or within walking distance. Even in a recession, Java Programmers with a Top Secret Clearance are a challenge to recruit.

Launched under a month ago, Smuz already has thousands of companies listing free jobs on the site including household names like Marriott, Allstate and ADP. With job search engines providing millions of unique visitors to the site every week, the future of traditional job boards is looking bleak. While free for candidates, sites like Monster and CareerBuilder are very expensive for companies looking to hire. Smuz even competes with them on features. Email notifications and one-click-apply features both come as standard and there is a free resume database for employers to search.

Smuz is one of a growing breed of websites that are shaking up established markets by using Google AdSense to profit while remaining free. And the name Smuz? Well according to the Frequently Asked Questions page - it's the noise monsters make when they're kicked in the pants!
