Job Opportunities & Online Interviewing
Your individual motivation and search for new job opportunities may stem from many sources. It may be that you were directly impacted by the economic hit caused by COVID-19. Perhaps your current job cannot accommodate the work-life arrangement you require for the foreseeable future due to the roller coaster of community openings and closings. More positively, it could be that the last several months have given you time for deep reflection, opportunities to reskill or upskill, and you are now looking for new and challenging opportunities. Even perhaps you are a recent graduate searching for your first full-time job or thinking that a lateral move to contract management or supplier relationship management is intriguing.
For those of you that have already started your search, you have probably felt the changes in the recruitment landscape – more remote opportunities, online interviewing and a changing emphasis on skills and abilities required in job descriptions.
Regardless of where your motivation originated, IACCM’s TASK topic on Job Opportunities and Online Interviewing provides resources and support as you navigate the marketplace. We have also linked out to training that will help you open doors to new opportunities or make you the most attractive candidate for hire.
For employers – recruit the sharpest talent
Post your opening on the IACCM jobs board
The traditional job sites currently post thousands of positions in contract and commercial management. Is your organization one of them? Is your opportunity being diluted in these broad forums? Are you attracting talent that has the experience, interest, passion and education that supports your hiring needs?
Why not post your opening on the IACCM Jobs Board and optimize the possibility to recruit the best talent for your team – individuals that are experienced in CCM and SRM and maintain an ongoing interest and commitment to their profession through IACCM membership.
For job seekers – resources and support to nab your next opportunity

Recruitment & Jobs: Where Next?
'The success of remote working has opened up previously unavailable talent pools, with 64% of hiring managers now more willing to consider remote workers.'
This finding, from a survey conducted by Cielo, represents both good and bad news for job candidates. Good, because it suggests greater opportunities to find work outside traditional limits of geography or personal circumstances. Bad, because it also indicates greater competition for whatever jobs are available. And in the post-COVID era, as business struggles to recover, the level of unemployment is set to rise and the volume of opening to fall.
