A new online "job board" focused on the off-road equipment industry is now available from the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), created specifically to connect qualified job seekers with employers in the agriculture, construction, forestry, mining and utility sectors. Visit the AEM Career Center at www.aem.org for more details.
Employers can post jobs for free through June 30, 2011 with the code AEMJOBS11; thereafter a modest fee applies that is very competitive compared to traditional broad-based job boards. Job listings can be posted in multiple areas in the job board network to increase visibility and attract the most qualified candidates.
For job seekers, the AEM job board offers free personalized "job alert" emails of new postings that match candidates' search preferences. There are 40 job categories from A (accounting) to almost-Z (welder) and include positions in both manufacturing and service-related, office and in-the-field, private and public sector, from entry-level to executive positions, and located in the U.S., Canada and worldwide.
The AEM job board includes a career resource center with an online library of helpful job-search information and links to related sites. The career resource area also features a "career coaching" option with the site's career experts available for personalized coaching sessions, and they respond to individual questions in an "ask the experts" section.
"While there have been significant job losses in the recession, there are still skilled positions available that need to be filled as our industries continue to fight back. This specialized service helps match up the companies and workers that 'make' America and the world," states Al Cervero, AEM senior vice president.
