As we all know, the COVID-19 pandemic is reshaping our industry and how we go about doing business. From the aisles to our offices, we are seeing the impact that this virus is inflicting. As an industry resource for our members and community, IDDBA wants each one of you to know that we are here and ready to support your business throughout these unprecedented times. Whether it’s helping our members stay up to date with the current trends and shifting industry landscape, or offering an online platform to help everyone stay connected, we are ready to arm you with tools to help buffer the COVID-19 blows.
Speaking of resources, have you heard of the IDDBA Career Center? We see the challenges both employers and job seekers are currently facing. To help alleviate these difficulties IDDBA wants our members to know that the IDDBA Career Center is here to help. From resume reviews to finding qualified candidates, the IDDBA Career Center is the employer/employee industry tool you will want to utilize when you’re searching for a new job or new employee.
As a job seeker, we provide the opportunity to build your profile, upload your resume, and choose the level of privacy/visibility you’re comfortable with for allowing hiring employers to consider you as a potential candidate. In partnership with TopResume, we’re offering one free resume evaluation to each job seeker, simply by having an account registered. You also will notice that being a job seeker in the IDDBA Community:
- Streamlines the way that you keep track of personal achievements
- Allows for increased engagement with employers and recruiters
- Displays specific skills, accomplishments, and career victories clearly
- Effectively matches candidates with the right industry employers
- Makes it easy to continue adding new skills, knowledge, and interests
As for employers, utilizing a smaller more niche career center will help reduce the surplus number of candidates and applications you may receive from larger job aggregators. By leveraging the power of a trusted association, you tap into a talent pool of candidates with the training and education needed for long-term success. Commercial job boards put everyone in a single pool, whereas being a member of IDDBA allows you to post jobs at discounted rates and allows access to a resume database of qualified candidates in the industry.
