SIOP JOB PLACEMENT SERVICES:

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Once again, SIOP will offer Job Placement Services at its Annual Conference. To use the Conference Job Placement Service you must be registered for both the Conference and the Conference Placement Service. Registration in the new SIOP JobNet may not be substituted for Conference Job Placement Service registration. To benefit fully from the Service, both job seekers and employers should pre-register.

PLACEMENT CENTER FEATURES

Three weeks before the conference, all job seekers who pre-registered for the Conference Job Placement Service will receive a booklet containing descriptions of full-time and internship employment opportunities. At the same time employers who are pre-registered will be mailed a booklet containing resumes of those seeking jobs and internships. You must pre-register to appear in and to receive the pre-conference booklet. Job seekers and employers who register on-site will receive the initial copy of the booklet the morning after they register. Employers may order additional booklets of resumes when they pre-register. During the conference, updated booklets containing listings of job seekers and employers who registered the previous day will be available to Center registrants. Registered job seekers and employers will be assigned an identification number and private mailbox and will be permitted to leave messages in the mailboxes of other registrants.

WHO MAY REGISTER FOR JOB PLACEMENT SERVICES

SIOP Job Placement Services are open to member and non-member job seekers who are registered for the conference. Any organization with an employee registered for the conference may submit position openings for which I-O training and experience are relevant. Listings may be for full- or part-time positions and/or internships.

PRE-REGISTRATION PROCEDURES, COSTS, AND DEADLINE

To pre-register, check the appropriate boxes on the General Conference Pre-Registration Form. Then mail the form, your registration payment for the Conference and Job Placement Service, and a single master copy of your resume (for job seekers) or position description (for employers) to the SIOP Administrative Office by February 28, 2000. (You must be registered for the Conference to register for the Job Placement Service.) Registration in the new SIOP JobNet cannot be substituted for Conference Placement Service registration.

Resumes and position descriptions must not exceed TWO (2) single-sided pieces of paper   DO NOT send sheets that have been printed on both sides. If resumes or job descriptions are longer than two single-sided pieces of paper, they will NOT be included in the booklets. SIOP will make copies of all resumes and position descriptions, so be certain that your materials are on standard 8 " by 11" paper, that they are legible, and that letterhead or logos, if used, copy adequately. If you are mailing from a country outside the U.S., be sure to leave a very wide lower margin, as your standard paper length is longer than U.S.

The registration fee for SIOP Student Affiliate member job/internship seekers is $40.00, for SIOP member job/internship seekers $45.00, and for non-member job/internship seekers $100.00. The employer registration fee is $100.00 and covers one or more positions. Additional booklets of job seeker resumes are available to pre-registered employers for $45 each.

All registration materials must be received at the Administrative Office by February 28, 2000. After this date, only on-site registration will be permitted, and your materials will not be included in the pre-conference mail out. Materials of those who register on-site will not be available until the morning following on-site Job Placement Service registration.

ANONYMOUS REGISTRATION

Anonymous registration is available to job seekers and employers. Anonymous registrants' materials will not appear in the booklets. If you are registering anonymously, please DO NOT send a copy of your resume or job description with your registration materials. However, anonymous registrants will be assigned an identification number and a private mailbox. They will receive all materials and will be permitted access to the placement area.

JOB SEEKER AND EMPLOYER INFORMATION

AFTER THE CONFERENCE

Copies of job seeker and employer booklets will be available to those not registered for the Placement Service on a first-come, first-served basis one week after the Conference. The cost is $45.00 each. Contact the Conference registration booth for additional information.
