Career Center’s Service Expanded
AAPG has expanded its online employment resources, providing employers targeted access to geoscience professionals and AAPG members an opportunity to specify their areas of expertise and experience.
AAPG member services manager Vicki Beighle said the online AAPG Career Center expands the existing jobs posting board, allowing for a more closely tailored description of a potential hire or a consultant – and making a search for appropriate applicants more efficient.
The searchable “registry” of expertise and interests matches expertise and experience with the job requirements, targeting the candidates with the job criteria and matching with the employer who needs the applicant’s knowledge and skills.
For the job seeker– For job seeking AAPG members, the AAPG Career Center is a free service that provides access to employers seeking geoscientists.
With its focus on petroleum geologists, the Web site offers members – and the industry at large – an easy-to-use and highly targeted resource for online employment connections for the petroleum industry.
In addition to posting their resumes, job seekers can browse and view available jobs based on their criteria and save those jobs for later review if they choose. Job seekers also can create a search agent to provide e-mail notifications of jobs that match their criteria.
Both members and non-members can use the AAPG Career Center to reach qualified candidates. Employers can post jobs online, search for qualified candidates based on specific job criteria and create an online resume agent to e-mail qualified candidates daily.
They also benefit from online reporting that provides job activity statistics.
For employees seeking explorationists– You can enter job descriptions, check the status of postings and renew or discontinue postings.
- Job activity tracking
- Your online account will include reports that show the number of individuals that have viewed your job, applied online and even how many times your job was sent out in a “job agent” or “e-mailed to a friend.” You’ll see at a glance your ad’s impact.
- Auto notification
- Set the criteria for your ideal job candidate and the system will e-mail you when new resumes are a match. No more time wasted visiting the site every day to see new candidates.
- Company awareness
- Along with each job posting you can include information about your company, your corporate logo, a Google map to your location and a link to your Web site.
Costs will be available prior to the launch date of the site, which Beighle said would be prior to the April 20-23 AAPG Annual Convention in San Antonio.
