American Sociological Association: Annual Meeting Employment Service
Annual Meeting Employment Service
The annual ASA Employment Service (ES) assists sociologists and prospective employers by providing convenient opportunities for interviewers and job seekers to meet in a neutral, monitored environment for initial short interviews during the Annual Meeting.
The online ES module gives registered users access to candidate resumes and job listings and supports an interactive scheduling calendar for setting up interview appointments during the Annual Meeting. The ES is accessible through the ASA Member Portal or via the quick link on this page.
Job seekers (candidates) must register for the 2014 Annual Meeting and pay the candidate fee for the Employment Service.
There is no deadline for employers (organizations) to register their organization to participate in the 2014 Employment Service. Employers (organizations) pay the job posting fee as part of their ES login process. Employers must use their ASA department or company ID to login to the Employment Service and post a position. Individual IDs cannot be used for employer registration. To obtain your employer ID, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (202) 383-9005, ext. 336.
After posting job listings, an employer can designate the appropriate personnel who will serve as interviewers, provided those individuals have registered for the Annual Meeting. Individuals may not be registered with the Employment Service as a candidate and also serve as an interviewer in the ES online module.
Annual Meeting preregistration closed on July 9, 2014. Potential candidates and interviewers who did not preregister will be unable to use the Employment Service until they complete on-site meeting registration at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square during August 15-19.
The Employment Service will be open in the Grand Ballroom at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square from Friday afternoon to mid-day Tuesday, August 15-19.
|Friday, August 15||1:30pm - 6:30pm|
|Saturday, August 16||8:00am – 5:30pm|
|Sunday, August 17||8:00am – 5:30pm|
|Monday, August 18||8:00am – 5:30pm|
|Tuesday, August 19||8:00am – 1:00pm|
Registered users must check in at their designated service area (Candidate Check-in or Employer Check-in), receive a briefing on using the service during the meeting, and obtain an ES service pass before proceeding to the interview area. Users should allow 30 minutes for this check-in and briefing process.
All initial interview appointments arranged through the Employment Service must take place on-site within the designated Interview Room service area in the Grand Ballroom at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square. This requirement is a safeguard for both interviewers and candidates.
Interviewers and candidates are encouraged to bring their own laptops and devices with them so they can more easily maintain communications during the Annual Meeting. The ASA Employment Service area will feature complimentary wireless internet as well as a few computer stations for use by registered ES users. Additional computers and complimentary wireless access are available for all registered meeting attendees at "The Hub," ASA's social networking booth in the exhibit hall, also located in the Grand Ballroom at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square.
