NSCA's new job board is designed to make it easier to connect to the right people, allowing users to set their own search criteria for locating jobs. Job seekers can submit their résumés to all registered employers, allow employers to search their résumés, and receive daily job match e-mails.
Employers can search online for résumés, collect résumés via e-mail and receive alerts when job postings are due to expire. With a few mouse clicks, employers can view detailed information about potential employees.
“This is a great way to bring new people into the industry, as well as match seasoned veterans with our member companies,” says Jodi Montgomery, senior director of member services. “We are committed to helping our members find a qualified workforce. This year, in conjunction with the NSCA Education Foundation, we will be focusing heavily on promoting the NSCA job board, with free résumé posting and job-searching features, to community colleges and vocational-technical schools nationwide.
The new job board is at www.nsca.org/jobs.
NSCA also reports that its manufacturer members are teaming with NSCA to make it more affordable and more convenient for commercial electronic systems professionals to receive the training they need. The new NSCA University Partners in Education program provides valuable benefits for anyone wishing to further their industry education.
Manufacturer partners agree to support regional training classes by providing classroom space for students. In addition, member companies can sign up to donate food to students, NSCA staff members and volunteers; invite members to tour their facilities; and recommend lodging at local hotels.
“We value these contributions from our manufacturer member companies. Their support makes it possible to bring our education classes to the industry with a substantial cost savings realized,” says NSCA Executive Director Chuck Wilson. “That allows us to reinvest those savings into new education programs. It really is a win-win for everyone.”
Partner in Education members include Atlas Sound (with locations in Phoenix; Ennis, Texas; and West Dundee, Ill.); Crestron Electronics (Rockleigh, N.J.); Bosch Communication Systems (Burnsville, Minn.); and Shure Incorporated (Niles, Ill).
NSCA plans to add more manufacturer partners to its roster. For more information about becoming a partner or to learn how you can receive training, contact NSCA Senior Director of Professional Development Norah Hammond at 319/861-8626.
