How Can I Find the Right Employee?

Searching for qualified employees is always time consuming. With ASIS&T's Jobline, your time is used effectively and the stack of resume's is piled in your favor. Jobline, a key part of ASIS&T's career services lists current job openings for all types of information professionals. Its distributed every month to all ASIS&T members. This valuable tool allows your organization to advertise job vacancies inexpensively and assures that you will receive vita‚ from individuals with experience or training in information management areas.

Want to list a job opening?

We'll send you a form on which you can outline the necessary information: title of position, a brief description of responsibilities, qualifications needed, salary range and name of a contact person. Or, just send the information directly to ASIS&T without the use of our form. Job openings will be listed for one month. If the position is filled before the month ends, notify ASIS&T. If you would like the position to remain listed for a second or third month, you'll save on each additional listing. You can also place your own display ads.
