ATLANTA — ASHRAE members now have increased opportunities to find jobs within their chosen field with a new, expanded jobs board.

The expansion between ASHRAE and BirdDog for the job board at will make it easier for employers to fill built-environment technology positions, as well as provide ASHRAE members with increased opportunities to find jobs within their chosen fields.

The expanded site specifically allows employers looking to hire ASHRAE members to post their listings throughout the BirdDog family of job boards, as well as ensure all ASHRAE members have an opportunity to see each posting.

“Our members are in high demand, and that’s good news,” said Tim Wentz, volunteer chair of ASHRAE’s Publishing and Education Council, which oversees “Unfortunately, like so many industries, companies wanting to hire or already employing ASHRAE members report troubles finding the right candidate. The improved ASHRAEjobs site, along with its four years of history, gives us the foundation to expand our efforts and ensure the right talent is being matched up with right job.”

This announcement comes at a time when employers are reporting difficulties finding qualified candidates for open positions.

“It had become evident in the past year that there was a gap between what we had in place and an increasing demand for both employers and job seekers to have a solution that was both effective and efficient,” said Bryan May of BirdDog.

BirdDog provides a cloud-based recruitment and applicant-tracking software to small- and medium-sized companies across the country that simplifies the hunt for right-fit candidates.
