AAPG has expanded its online employment resources, providing employers targeted access to geoscience professionals and AAPG members an opportunity to specify their areas of expertise and experience.
AAPG member services manager Vicki Beighle said the online AAPG Career Center expands the existing jobs posting board, allowing for a more closely tailored description of a potential hire or a consultant – and making a search for appropriate applicants more efficient.
The searchable “registry” of expertise and interests matches expertise and experience with the job requirements, targeting the candidates with the job criteria and matching with the employer who needs the applicant’s knowledge and skills.
♦ For the job seeker– For job seeking AAPG members, the AAPG Career Center is a free service that provides access to employers seeking geoscientists.
With its focus on petroleum geologists, the Web site offers members – and the industry at large – an easy-to-use and highly targeted resource for online employment connections for the petroleum industry.
In addition to posting their resumes, job seekers can browse and view available jobs based on their criteria and save those jobs for later review if they choose. Job seekers also can create a search agent to provide e-mail notifications of jobs that match their criteria.
