Running a job board can be a lonely business. When it’s just you and your team, it’s tough to:

  • stay on top of Best Practices in the industry;
  • find strategic alliances and partnerships to grow your site;
  • identify products and services that have helped other sites prosper; and
  • spend some quality time with your peers in the industry.
  • Well, now there’s a simple solution to all of these problems. Join the International Association of Employment Web Sites, the trade organization of the global online employment services industry.

    You’re part of a $2+ billion marketplace that is growing like gangbusters; the IAEWS will help make sure you’re a beneficiary of that growth, not left out of it.
