ATAP Launches New, Niche Talent Acquisition Job Board

Announcement written by Shannon Smedstad, ATAP Member and Principal Employer Brand Strategist at exaqueo

To continuously advance the talent acquisition profession and provide exceptional value to members, the Association of Talent Acquisition Professionals (ATAP) is proud to announce a new member benefit. On June 20, 2017, ATAP launched a new Jobs section to its expanding website,

Talent acquisition is now the chosen career for many people, who in turn affect millions of lives—and livelihoods—all around the world. It’s only natural that the Association for talent acquisition would have its own job board. After all, connecting people with opportunity is at the heart of what ATAP’s Board of directors, members, and volunteers all do, each and every day.

“This is just the first evolution of the ATAP job board,” shares Chloe Rada, chair of the Association’s website committee and employment brand leader at Sodexo. “As a new organization, we realize the importance of providing value to members, as well as sponsors, and a job board is a good place to start. We anticipate growing out the job listings and website functionality throughout the year.”

Whether you are looking for your first job as a corporate recruiter or need to hire your next VP of Global Talent Acquisition, ATAP wants you to visit its new job board. “Our goal is to have organizations from around the world posting TA-related jobs and seeking out the Association’s members,” states Ben Gotkin, ATAP’s Executive Director. “We aspire to be the first place people think of when they’re looking for new opportunities or need to fill openings on their recruitment teams.”

Association sponsors and employers can take advantage of free and/or affordable postings, and will appreciate how the Association goes the extra mile. In addition to posting open TA jobs, ATAP will also share jobs via its growing Twitter and Facebook channels.

Jobs seekers can access current recruitment openings on the ATAP website, as well as search Twitter using #JobsinTAa new industry hashtag that ATAP hopes gains traction. And, all members are encouraged to join and network with other members in ATAP’s private Facebook group.
