ASA Online Job Bank Is Going Strong
In January 2006, the ASA officially
said goodbye to the ASA Employment Bulletin and ushered in the new year with the online ASA Job Bank. As of December 2008, at almost three years old, the Job Bank is going strong. More than 3,600 jobs have been posted and activated on the site. The Job Bank is ASA’s electronic one-stop shop for job candidates seeking employment or fellowships in sociology and for employers interested in posting job openings and reviewing candidate resumes. It is fully searchable by field of interest, name of employer/candidate, keyword, position, salary, and most recent postings. For more information, visit the Job Bank at jobbank.asanet.org. Data from the Job Bank are used by ASA’s Research Department to evaluate the employment situation in the field. See the free research brief Too Many or Too Few PhDs at www.asanet.org. A new brief with 2008 data should be available this spring.
