The InfoComm International® electronic recruitment service on its website (www.infocomm.org), geared specifically for the audiovisual industry, offers a cost-effective method of employee recruitment where employers pay a small fee to post jobs, and job seekers submit their resumes at no cost. InfoComm has teamed up with Brainhunter.com Ltd. to provide this service.
“Recruiting qualified staff is a significant challenge for our industry,” said Randal Lemke, Ph.D., InfoComm International Executive Director. “Our new job board is tailored for the needs of the AV industry, and we think it will be a very positive contribution to the industry and to members.”
A secure job posting tool allows employers to post, edit and delete jobs as well as screen candidates against specific qualifications, while job seekers are able to investigate new career opportunities, receiving electronic alerts when a new posting fits their criteria.
Employers can also search a resume database specifically focused on audiovisual candidates.
“Building on the success of InfoComm’s workforce development programs such as SkillsUSA, ICIF scholarships and internships, and AV Tech Online, a college curriculum in AV, InfoComm’s new online Career Site is the final component needed to bring job candidates and employers together,” said Terry Friesenborg, CTS, InfoComm Senior Vice President of education and professional development.
