Trying to find a job is hard enough, but trying to find a job in a niche industry like industrial hygiene is even harder. There are so many jobs out there for industrial hygienists but no specific platform that caters to them. Enter CareerAdvantage, an online resource where employers can post jobs and track submissions and candidates can post their resumes and apply for jobs all in one place. Plus, there is no fee for job seekers!
With AIHA’s CareerAdvantage program, job seekers can find the jobs that matter most to them and employers can get connected with qualified candidates in the industry. And if you’re not in the market for a job, that’s okay! CareerAdvantage also provides services to help you polish up your general job skills as well, so you can conduct better interviews, better understand job descriptions, and network more effectively.
Network to Impress at AIHce
Every year at AIHce EXP, CareerAdvantage hosts several events for job seekers and employers, including speed networking, on-site mock interviews, resume counseling, and career seminars. These events allow employers to put a “face to a name” and give you a chance to let your personality shine. Employers can even select candidates prior to the event in June for on-site interviews at AIHce in Seattle!
This year’s Building Careers for Life Development Fair features sessions designed to help those in the OEHS field advance their current careers and find and maintain positions in the industry. The CareerAdvantage Development Fair also provides an opportunity for employers and OEHS professionals to mingle and make important contacts. It’s not all about finding a job, but developing your career in a more rounded way.
Year-Round Career Development Assistance
The best part about CareerAdvantage is the resume critiquing and career advice available to candidates throughout the year. Whether you’re an employer or a candidate seeking a job, be sure to keep your profile and information updated. Our CareerAdvantage platform works better for you if you use it frequently, checking for updates and getting real-time statistics on your job postings (if you’re an employer).
More importantly, we wanted to create a platform that goes beyond job postings, which is why CareerAdvantage is packed with advice and tips and ways to connect with industry insiders for guidance. If you have any questions about the platform, you can contact Wanda Barbour.
