Here’s how to most effectively use this resource to find your next position.

Set up Job Alerts. Let the system find new jobs for you: set up your preferred job search criteria, including location, discipline, and level. You will then automatically receive a notification whenever a matching job is posted.

Create Your Searchable Portfolio. Increase your exposure to employers by uploading up to five career-related documents, such as work samples or certification letters.

Preview Your Job Applications. Before submitting your application, you can preview it as an employer will see it.

Check the Commute. Assess a potential commute right from the job detail screen. The Google Map feature will display a map with the distance between your home and the employer.

Save Potential Jobs. Save up to 100 jobs to a folder in your account so you come back to apply when you are ready.

Review Your References. For a discounted fee starting at $79.20 for members, experienced professionals will call your references to learn what they are telling prospective employers. All checks are done with complete discretion and confidentiality.

Have Your Resume Reviewed. The ASHG Career Center provides resume rewriting and critiques, starting at $29.95. This resource is available for resumes and cover letters from entry to executive level.
