Jobs Board Has a New Home

We have a new and improved Jobs Board that includes a Resumes Board. Employers and recruiters may now register to post job announcements and make updates themselves as needed. Job seekers may register and create resumes on the new site. You may add your resume by filling in all your details in the Resume form or you may upload a PDF of your current resume along with your photo if you wish. You have the freedom to make updates as needed to your own resume. The Welcome page provides information about how to use the new Jobs Board.

Please check out the new site and make use of all the new capabilities.
