According to the Electronic Recruiting Exchange, 90% of the companies participating in a survey on hiring practices rank the Internet (e.g., bulletin or job boards) as the most effective medium for recruitment.
60% admit using professional and trade associations as a source for attracting prospects.
If you’re an association looking for new ways to bring value to your members, providing employment opportunities is a great way to be remembered.

We’d love to hear about it and your experiences might be part of a future article we’re working on.
