Instructions for the Consultant Locator Form
SIOP is pleased to offer our Consultant Locator Service (CLS). This is a free membership benefit designed to help connect SIOP professional members who provide consulting services with organizations seeking I-O expertise.
The CLS enables users to search for I-O consultants based on the types of services provided, key words, name, or geographic location. The user’s search results will display consultants who match the criteria and can be expanded to show a photo, a consultant bio, contact information, and the geographic areas in which the consultant provides service. Search results can be sorted by column headers.
To be included as consultant in the SIOP CLS, you must opt in. To do so, go to the SIOP main page at siop.org and log in using your SIOP user name and password. Then click on Manage Privacy and Opt In/Outs. Here you can opt in to the system as well as designate the contact information to be provided on your CLS profile. Click Save when done.
Next click Return to User Account. Then click on Edit Demographic Information. Scroll down and you will see a section labeled Consultant Locator Service. Here you can enter:
- Geographic Area of Service: You can select the entire US or Canada or just specific states and provinces. You can also select international or Mexico. We suggest that you provide additional detail in your bio if you choose “international” since we do not provide a list of countries.
- Consultant Area of Expertise: Click on all the areas on which you feel comfortable consulting (limit 6).
- Consultant Locator Keywords: Separate key words by commas
- Consultant Locator Links: You can enter up to three personal or corporate links to give users further information on your consulting abilities.
Be sure to click “Save” to save your selections.
Again click Return to User Account. Then click on Upload Resume & Biography.
On this page you can submit:
- Biography/Description: Here is your opportunity to provide a bio outlining your credentials and other helpful information. Note that this is different than your my.SIOP profile. This bio is focused on your consulting work. There are a number of editing features to help you customize your bio. The “preview” button will not change your view unless you have used HTML in your bio.
- Upload Your Resume/CV: This is where you upload your CV or resume. Please note that documents can’t be deleted once uploaded, but you can overwrite them by uploading a new document.
The Consultant Locator Service user site, siop.org/cls, is where your potential clients will go to search for consultants. After you enter your Consultant Locator profile information, you can view your information to make sure you are happy with the results. The CLS can also be accessed on the SIOP home page in the dropdown menu for “Services.” The CLS uses the photo you uploaded into your my.SIOP profile. If you haven’t already done this, the “upload photo” location is on the User Account page.
We hope you will find the CLS beneficial. We’re pleased to present this service free of charge to members as part of our efforts to meet the needs of those engaged in the practice and science of I-O psychology. We encourage you to opt in and complete your profile as soon as possible.
