NASC Launches New Career Center in the Sports and Athletics Career Network

March 9, 2015

showLogoThe new and improved NASC Career Center launched earlier this month.  The NASC joins the Sports and Athletics Career Network (SACN), which integrates Career Centers of leading industry associations, including the NCAA, NFHS, NJCAA, and NRPA.

Previously, the NASC hosted a static job board on its website with limited functionality.  The new Career Center includes helpful features that allow job seekers to share resumes, receive notifications about new jobs, and apply for positions directly through the job board.  Employers will now pay a nominal fee for important additional features to find the best candidates, including the ability to manage job postings online, monitor activity reports, access a searchable resume database, and receive an automatic email notification when new resumes match job criteria. Employers who post jobs will also have their jobs featured in the NASC Get in the Game eNews once during the 30-day post.

The NASC Career Center is powered by Boxwood Technology.
