Earlier today I posted an announcement from the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, New AEM online “job board” targets industry workers and employers â€“ â€¨Job posts are free through June 30, 2011. I was glad to see that the association was taking positive steps to help get more jobs information out to the people looking for work. I e-mailed them asking that they let me know when jobs started getting posted on the new job board.
Well, as fast as emails can travel on my computer, I heard from Liz Stock at AEM advising me that there were 155 jobs already posted. Her e-mail said, â€śWe already have about 155 jobs posted.Â You can search for jobs by keyword, location or job type.Â You can find the list of jobs that are currently posted here:Â http://aemjobs.aem.org/c/search_results.cfm?site_id=11849.â€ť
I didnâ€™t doubt Liz for one second but was curious to see what kinds of jobs were posted, who was posting them and where they were located geographically. Letâ€™s face it. There are some jobs that are available no matter how bad the economy is; there are some operations that scare employees away rather than attracting them; and of course there are places in the country where no one wants to work. I had to see how many of the 155 jobs fit into these three categories.
None. Thatâ€™s right, none. They all look like good jobs and there were many that I found to be tempting for myselfâ€¦
These jobs do represent good opportunities and also indicate that things are getting better and will continue to do so. Everyday I get announcements about new projects being started, some being negotiated, and others still on the drawing board. Need a job? Look here! Have opening for employees? Post here!
Thanks AEM for taking that giant step for the industry.
