Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Every company, regardless of how large or small, struggles with the same HR dilemma – attracting qualified candidates. Hiring the wrong candidate can be an expensive venture with long-term repercussions. In the pulp, paper, and allied industries, there is finally a resource to make this process less cumbersome. The TAPPI Career Center provides employers direct access to qualified paper and packaging industry professionals. With its focus on the paper and packaging industry companies and professionals, the TAPPI Career Center, offers its members—and the industry at large—an easy-to-use and highly targeted resource for online employment connections.

High Visibility and Job Posting Management w/ a Niche Job Board

The truth is that the continued demand for online job boards show a better than 20 percent gain over last year. Job seekers are already using online services and want more visibility to top employers. Recently, the Wall Street Journal Online reported that employers are flocking to niche job boards and moving away from commercial job boards for a lack of qualified candidates. Unlike commercial job boards where hundreds of unqualified job seekers apply, the TAPPI Career Center directly connects qualified paper and packaging industry candidates to employers. On average, jobs posted on the TAPPI Career Center are viewed 240 times by industry job seekers. This means for every job posted, an average of 240 qualified job seekers have viewed the job posting!

Posting your job with a talent filled niche job board is one of many features to help employers save time and hiring cost. Using TAPPI's Career Center's Resume Agent feature, employers can:

• specify particular skills and search for the right candidate through the resume search
• have unlimited access to resumes
• activate features such as candidate notification
• save to favorites to help manage potential interviewees
