                  Find a Job
• Student said it was not difficult to find how to
  apply for a job.
• Tag Cloud / RSS Icon is confusing
• Actual application is easy to use.
• Student actually applied for job – let’s see if
  HR can figure out who.
                Who’s in Jail
• Student said it was fairly easy to find on the
  County website.
• Hard to find link, but once they visited the
  site, it was easy to remember where it was
  located.
• Did not notice the link in the tag cloud
What information is available on parks
             website?
• Student said that more information should be made
  available, such as Parks outside of Catawba County
  lines, Newton City parks for example (Southside, JC
  park). It could be confusing to a citizen that just moved
  here, they may be under the impression that Riverbend
  and Bakers Mountain are the only two parks.
• Did not see any events listed at the parks.
• Only 2 parks listed on our site.
• Would be nice to have links to other parks in Catawba
  County even though they are not Catawba County
  parks (i.e. city parks)

        Look at the Kid’s Pages
• “Really Cool”
• Good colors and layout
• Would like to see some sort of game on the
  site…”That would top it off”
      Look up a Septic Permit and
        information on Tattoos:
• Student found the permit, fairly easy but did
  not like the page layout. He had a very hard
  time finding information
• Did not like the design / layout of the page
  once visited the site.
• Tattoo information was difficult to find.
• Overall website design - “Not appealing / easy
  to use”, “almost impossible to use”, Needs
  better search engine to find items.
Find information on Flu Shots and Teen
                Health
•   The Flu shot information was easy to find once you got to PH website.
•   Should have a “Do you have a Health Concern” link on the PH Home Page
•   Need more Photos
•   “Fairly easy to use”
•   Info not beneficial only because the user did not feel they would use this
    service.
•   Totally Teens site looks better because of the colors and layout.
•   Would like to see something like ASK.COM for usability. “It’s quick and
    easy”
•   Totally Teens site “touches on actual issues that teens may have”
•   Would like to see the “Ask Us a Health Question” in a highly visible area on
    the page and “In your face”.
•   More photos would be nice “People like photos”
•   Flu shot information was easy to find and had a lot of useful information.

technologies a Web portal shouldn't be without:

Paul W. Taylor, chief strategy officer of the Center for
Digital Government, here are five technologies a Web
portal shouldn't be without:

Social networking: "It is simple, free and it may even
 seem quaint and gimmicky. But a growing number of
 public-sector applications and portals have put a stake
 in the ground in MySpace and Facebook in a way that
 establishes themselves where people actually like to
 congregate and then draws them back into the
 [government] portal," Taylor said.

Paul W. Taylor, chief strategy officer of the Center for
Digital Government, here are five technologies a Web
portal shouldn't be without:

Mash-ups and blogs: Governments have been yearning
 for true two-way communication with citizens. Blogs
 and mash-ups can be used for this purpose.

portal shouldn't be without:

Twitter and short messages:
         ," Taylor said. Twitter is a popular service that
 lets subscribers update each other about their
 everyday activities - in no more than 140 characters at
 a time - via BlackBerry, cell phone and traditional Web
 browsers. Governments "tweet" to citizens about
 events such as crimes and fires, as well as more
 mundane functions.

Paul W. Taylor, chief strategy officer of the
Center for Digital Government, here are five
technologies a Web portal shouldn't be without:

Mobile device applications:

             , Taylor said. Perfecting the Web
 portal for a desktop or laptop isn't enough. Web
 portals must be squeezed down for the smaller
 screens of mobile devices.

Audio: YouTube is great, but it's not the only option. "I
 still haven't given up on audio. It's lighter to the touch
 - both technologically and to produce - and there's a
 captive, earbud-wearing audience that we haven't
 tapped successfully yet," Taylor said.

         When times are tough!
• Look for programs/contracts that are rarely used.
• Look for excess licenses.
• Look for collaboration opportunities and combining
  services.
• Look for “Do I really need that?” items.
• Ask how many things on your computer you really use?
• Look for opportunities to change the way you do
  business.
• Think before you print and save.
• Turn off the computer, monitor and peripherals.
