Ready for Your Next Career Step? Try ASSE’s NexSteps
Among the perks of attending Safety 2008 here in Las Vegas is that you’re almost obligated to leave the expo floor with more than you brought in. For most, that means at least one bag full of pens, lights, magazines, keychains, and other knickknacks, but for some it could mean a new job.
Career connections can happen anywhere here, with so many industry professionals packed in one place, but as an added incentive to boost attendance and assist those looking for work or a change, ASSE has again set up NexSteps in the Las Vegas Convention Center. NexSteps is the society's job placement center where job seekers go to post resumes or view postings by companies seeking to hire a safety, health and/or environmental professional. Employers post positions and browse through resumes to seek potential employees. And as an extra perk for attendees, throughout this week of the conference and expo ASSE is allowing jobs to be posted at no charge!
To put this perk in perspective, the normal charge for employers to post their available positions is $275 for one month, $300 for two months, and $325 for three months—or until you notify the center that the position is filled. (Internships, university positions, and entry-level positions requiring one year or less of experience can always be posted free of charge.) In addition to posting their available positions, employers can search resumes online and set up a resume agent to alert them when new resumes are posted that match the criteria.
Job seekers, meanwhile, can create an account, upload their resumes, and receive automated notifications when jobs are posted that match their interests. For more information and account activation, visit www.nexsteps.org/careerresources.asp.
