Positions in Policy APPAM Communities Special Events Student Hub & Events Equity and Inclusion Sessions & Events Wellness Sessions

 

 

APPAM is pleased to host the Positions in Policy (PIP) program. The program connects job seekers who plan on attending the 2021 Fall Research Conference with hiring organizations who will be conducting interviews this spring. These organizations will reach out to job candidates to conduct interviews at the Austin conference, virtually, or throughout a separate interview process

What's so special about this program? PIP has a unique matching style. As a job seeker, your resume will be put directly in front of employers based on specialized criteria from your resume and the company. The employers post open positions on APPAM’s Career Connections page and use the job seeker contact list to narrow their candidate search. This opportunity is at the top of the list of APPAM membership benefits. 

 

Employers:

As a complimentary service to all APPAM institutional members and $250 for non-institutional members, simply post your open positions on APPAM's Career Connection page. You can post both positions that will be interviewed for at the conference in March and those that will have a separate interview process.

In addition to complimentary interview space, APPAM will share a job seeker contact list to help narrow your candidate search. 

Fee: This is a complimentary service for active APPAM institutional members and $250 for non-institutional members. If you have questions about the March 2022 Positions in Policy program, please email info@appam.org

Interview Space: APPAM will also provide complimentary, private space for PIP participants to host interviews. There will be four interview rooms at the conference that may be reserved in one-hour increments throughout the conference days. Once you reserve the space, you have access to the room for the entire time on the date of your reservation. At the conclusion of the reservation times, the room will be refreshed for use by the next organization. Each organization may reserve up to three time slots. To reserve space, please email info@appam.orgNote, you must have a position listed on the APPAM Job Board, Career Connections, to reserve interview space.

For more information, please visit our Employer FAQ page.

Job Seekers:

Tired of uploading your resume to a website and feeling like it's being lost in the void? When you participate in PIP, your contact information, areas of interest, and resume will be put directly in front of employers with open positions to give you a leg up amongst other job seekers and resumes floating around the internet. During registration, attendees will have the opportunity to express interest in this program. You'll also be able to post your resume to APPAM's Career Connections and browse jobs posted by participating organizations. Employers will reach out directly to you to coordinate the interview process.

Fee: This is a complimentary service for active APPAM members. If you’re not an APPAM member and wish to participate, please join now or contact membership@appam.org. If you’re unable to become a member at this time but want to share your resume, you can upload it to APPAM Career Connections resume bank free-of-charge. However, your contact information will not be included in the job seeker contact list.

For more information, please visit our Job Seeker FAQ Page.
