RSS Feeds

If you're a regular visitor to our site, or just drop by from time to time, you may notice the little orange rectangles with the letters "XML" or "RSS" on some of our pages. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication, and it provides a way to automatically capture our headlines for off-line reading or display on your own Web site.

With RSS you can display headlines from our Career Development section -- see our list of current feeds below -- and those other news providers, on your computer display with software called newsreaders. Newsreaders take RSS feeds in XML, a machine language, and format them in HTML, used for human-readable Web pages. With RSS, you can also grab our Web content and display it on your own Web site (legally), with the text updating automatically as we update the feeds.

Here is a list of our current RSS feeds:
