Jun 20, 2003: New IA Job Board at AIfIA

Looking to hire an information architect? Or looking for a position? I'm thrilled to pass along word of AIfIA's latest initiative, an IA job board. According to Samantha Bailey, the initiative's leader:

I'm writing to announce the launch of the Asilomar Institute for Information Architecture Job Board. We're launching a job board specifically targeting the kinds of positions that AIfIA members are seeking with the goal of bringing the best candidates in the field together with the organizations who need them. AIfIA is the only professional organization solely dedicated to information architecture professionals and our membership serves as a qualified pool of candidates in this emerging field, so we think this is going to be an attractive service for employers, leading to an excellent pool of postings for our members.

The Job Board is launching in phases; initially we're going to be sending out a weekly email collection of text postings. In future phases we plan to make the system more robust and automated, with postings online that can be searched by region/geography, type of position, etc.

To sign up please use our webform. If you know someone in the field seeking employment, please let them know about the job board. The only requirement for signing up is that they join AIfIA. Finally, if you know of employers we should target or of currently open positions, please either submit them via the posting submission webform or via email: jobs@aifia.org.

Yet another reason to plunk down US$40 to join AIfIA. Along with the member directory, the moderated mailing list, the translation initiative, the education initiative, the stewardship of ia/, the infrastructure and support for other community initiatives (like this one), etc. etc...

Lou, is the job board also going to deliver non-US positions? I've noticed the AIfIA appears to be making efforts elsewhere to include those of us in Europe and elsewhere with the translation initiatives etc... Just wondering.

Mark, I recommended the job board to a friend in Rio de Janeiro yesterday and he has already posted the position. AIfIA is for everyone :)
