Best Practices in Online Association Career Centers

WEDDLE’s and IEEE are pleased to announce a special seminar on Best Practices in Online Association Career Centers. The session will be presented by WEDDLE’s Publisher, Peter Weddle.

The free seminar draws on WEDDLE’s 10+ years of research into what works and what doesn’t in the online employment industry. WEDDLE’s research has been cited in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Fortune, Kiplinger and a host of other publications.

The 60 program will cover:

  • WEDDLE’s latest findings on what job seekers and employers and recruiters look for in an online employment resource;
  • The challenge from commercial job boards that are now positioning themselves as “career portals;”
  • Some of the best new ideas for employment site content, features, and services;
  • Strategies for differentiating an online association career center among employers, recruiters and job seekers; and
  • Strategies for increasing advertising and other revenue generated by an association’s online career center.
  • Time will be provided after his presentation for questions and answers with participants.

    This program is being hosted by IEEE and will be presented as a Webinar. For more information and to register, please contact Faith Jeanty at or 212-419-7760.

    The Dilemma Facing Job Boards

    How are you going to differentiate your well run and reputable site from the growing number of “back bedroom job boards” appearing on the Web? These sites confuse your customers and give all employment Web-sites a bad name.

    How can you solve this dilemma? Join the International Association of Employment Web Sites, the trade association of the online employment industry.

    Whether you’re a:

  • stand alone enterprise,
  • newspaper,
  • professional association,
  • radio station, or
  • affinity group,
  • the key to a successful employment Web-site is great services and equally as great positioning in the marketplace. You work hard to achieve the former; the Association can help you work smart to accomplish the latter.
