WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Once again, SIOP will offer Job Placement Services at its Annual Conference.

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 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.
