PDMS managing director Chris Gledhill said the site had exceeded expectations since it went live in January 2009. It had attracted 944 registered individual users and 69 registered employers as of February 18 this year, he said. He added that the wide user profile rendered the site's name 'something of a misnomer' as more Manx professionals than graduates were registered.
Guests heard the system was based on social networking principles, geared towards the Manx employment market and responded to the Island's business priorities.
Mr Gledhill said: 'Manx Graduates is software as a service – a neutral environment built on a secure platform that can be used to build lasting relationships.' Manx Graduates embodied the Freedom to Flourish philosophy as it was about 'building something collectively', he added. IOMToday
