Television schedule system

Screen (10) for a user interface of a television schedule system and process consists of an array (24) of irregular cells (26), which vary in length, corresponding to different television program lengths of one half hour to one-and-one half hours or more. The array is arranged as three columns (28) of one-half hour in duration, and twelve rows (30) of program listings. Some of the program listings overlap two or more of the columns (28) because of their length. Because of the widely varying length of the cells (26), if a conventional cursor used to select a cell location were to simply step from one cell to another, the result would be abrupt changes in the screen (10) as the cursor moved from a cell (26) of several hours length to an adjacent cell in the same row. An effective way of taming the motion is to assume that behind every array (24) is an underlying array of regular cells. By restricting cursor movements to the regular cells, abrupt screen changes will be avoided. With the cursor (32) , the entire cell (26) is 3-D highlighted, using a conventional offset shadow (34). The offset shadow (34) is a black bar that underlines the entire cell and wraps around the right edge of the cell. To tag the underlying position—which defines where the cursor (32) is and thus, where it will move next—portions (36) of the black bar outside the current underlying position are segmented, while the current position is painted solid.

System and Method for Online Employment Recruiting and Evaluation

A system and method for online employment recruiting and evaluation is provided. An online, web-based environment allows employers to create job descriptions for posting on an Internet-based job search service in communication with the web-based environment, and allows for online recruitment and review of hiring candidates using a multi-phase approach. An employer can create an initial questionnaire associated with the job descriptions, which must be answered by potential employees as part of the recruitment and hiring process. A virtual dossier is created for each potential employee, is stored in a database, and can be reviewed by the employer. An employer can select desired candidates based upon information provided in response to the initial questionnaire, and selected candidates can be provided with a second questionnaire which asks the selected candidates to provide information about previous employers/supervisors. A subset of candidates can then be selected for a telephone interview, which is recorded and stored as part of the virtual dossier. Each employer/supervisor specified by the candidate is also interviewed, and the interview is recorded and is stored as part of the candidate's virtual dossier. A final group of candidates is then selected for an in-person interview, which is recorded and made part of the candidate's virtual dossier. A final review of the updated virtual dossiers is conducted by the employer so that the employer can select a final candidate for hiring. The virtual dossier can be made part of the hired candidate's personnel file, and provides a digital, comprehensive, and easy-to-access record of the recruitment and evaluation process of the candidate.
