Job seeker is advised that it is their responsibility to remove personal info. The association's membership is public something we'll never understand. There is no way to determine how many jobs are really posted on this site. One valuable asset is their annual listing of more than 1500 college internships. This publication is sent to each student chapter and provided via mail for $10 to others. Links to additional internships are provided.

Excellent design allows recruiters to view a summary and drill for details. Jobs can be accessed by members and are free for recruiters to post. A message board with an "ask the expert" feature is an added value. On our visit the topic was: "strategies for recruiting and retaining your nursing staff". If you are an executive seeking employment or an organization seeking talent in this field, this site is a no-brainer.
American Culinary Federation
If you need to cook up a new approach to finding culinary professionals, the American Culinary Federation charges employers $175 (non-members, 50% off for members) for a 60 day job posting.

All jobs are dated for freshness although some were mighty salty.
American Institute of CPA's
Confusion reigned when we found that the American Institute of CPAs and it's state society partners were competing with themselves. The AICPA site serves a 330,000-member association...and anyone else who wants to look. New ads that appear in The Journal of Accountancy, the monthly publication of the AICPA, are searchable here by job title. Recruiters pay $80 to post a job for 4 weeks. It is amazing to us that more jobs are not posted on this site. Then we discovered CPA2Biz Career Center (http://www.cpa2biz.com) where recruiters can post a position for $200 for a 30-day run and a resume database that can be accessed for $1,500. Recruiters are automatically sent new resumes that match their positions as they are posted to the site. Only AICPA members can access the jobs. both sites appear to represent the same organization. Go figure.

Now with 58 corporate members, this model started in January 1998 proves corporations can collaborate to recruit talent. Job seekers can search by keyword, job categories, education or salary to find their job of choice. All jobs are date posted. We have always appreciated the story line of the site and the creative toys, tools and resources it has developed to engage visiting engineers.

The Society of Photo-optical Instrument Engineers supports Optics.ORG and Fibers.ORG and both offer members resume registration. Access to the resumes (about 60) by employers is free. Recruiters can post jobs for $500 for a four-week run and the site does notify people who have signed up for a "job alert". Resumes and job listings are date posted. We only found 3 job listings on our last visit. Proves you can have the right product but you still have to advertise it.
Philanthropy Journal Online
The Philanthropy Journal Online hosts information and jobs for non-profit organizations. A free job alert newsletter is e-mailed to anyone that registers. Job seekers can search the USA by clicking on their region of choice from a detailed map. Jobs can be searched by clicking "development", "executive" or "other".

Jobs can be emailed to members via the sites electronic newsletter for $120 per insertion. There is a $25 handling fee to post a resume on the Philanthropy News Network.
Physics Today Online
The American Institute of Physics reaches 120,000 physicists and engineers worldwide. Unfortunately AIP can be confusing- they accept job postings in two places for the same site. The cost of posting a job online on "Career Services" is $18.00 per line. The cost to place an ad with "Physics Today" is $30.00 per line. Job seekers search by keyword, or job category (industry and optics, academic, computing, government/FFRD/other). There were 303 positions listed on our visit. Members can also take part in career workshops that are held across the US.
PR Soc. of America
The Public Relations Society of America has 116 chapters, 17,000 + members and offers a careers section for individuals interested in the profession. Recruiters can post positions for $155 for the first 5 lines (each additional line is $20). Jobs are posted each Friday and are live for 1 month. Resumes can be viewed for free but are in no particular order. Members of PRSA can post their resume for 1 month for free. Non-members pay $40. Job seekers view a map of the US to select location. All openings are date posted with contact information provided as well. A contact list for local chapters is available on the site and should be checked as many chapters run their own job board.
Reserve Officers Association
The Reserve Officers Association's (ROA) Career Center offers web-based job capabilities for assisting military personnel in transition. Jobs are posted at TAO Online - Transition Assistance Online. With almost 80,000 members, ROA has a constituency that is underrepresented. Disciplines as far ranging as advanced communications technology, personnel administration, and project supervision can be found. Once a recruiter posts a job they are given access to the resume database. A company looking for applicants with a military background to fill defense-related requirements would be remiss if they didn't check out one or more of the many military transition sites available on the web.
SciJobs.org targets scientists with considerable skill. Jobs can be posted for $2 per day. Site would rather link to corporate site's job pages then have recruiters post jobs. Owners advise that they go out to corporate sites and pull down research job links to this site each week. Recruiters can access the site's resume bank for $25 a week. Access is only given to employers (no headhunters). Recruiters may want to think about becoming a preferred employer to get their postings better "position".

Openings are for post docs, bioinformatics/LIMS, scientific writers, professor/lecturers. Job seekers can search jobs using the site's engine or select "employers of choice" and hyperlink to the company employment page.
Science Careers, launched 1996, is an important benefit for members of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Employers posting jobs in conjunction with print "line-ads" pay $50 for four weeks (display ads are $150 for four weeks). "Career Links" include advertisers who have purchased banners to their job sites. Science typically sponsors 4 career fairs a year to attract pharmaceutical and biotechnology talent for their advertisers. Access to the resume database costs $3,000 to view the 9,000 + resumes. Close to 17,000 scientists receive job alerts via email and recruiters can target specific segments of this group for $550 or spend $2,000 to send a posting to all. Job seekers can view jobs by various disciplines and each has the # of openings displayed. The site's search engine requires a little too matching for our tastes but it works. Keep it simple.. Employers wanting to target the scientific community need to review all that they can do here.

Soc. for Human Resource Management
SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management) has a sleek new look and continues to lead the pack as a model for association sites on the web (OK, we are biased). Still, the awards they've received, the results they achieve and their Help Wanted contribution to SHRM's bottom line supports our opinion. Job listings that will eventually see print in the monthly tabloid HRNews are posted immediately to the Net (few other print publications have yet to understand that sense of urgency). Positions can be viewed throughout the US by location, title, and date of posting or keyword search. A handful of international openings were also listed. Total openings by state can also be found. Cost to post a job is $20 per line or $30 with the print. You do not have to be a member to view the job postings. However, only members can register to receive notification of new positions via e-mail. Members have access to the membership directory- a great recruiting tool. With over 160,000 members and visibility to non-members, this is the 1st place to post a HR opening.

Entrepreneural owners of the site make their $$$ by licensing a private version with their database of volunteer opportunities to large corporatons. Amazing.
