The only association dedicated to the profession of Inside Sales, the AA-ISP, launches new Career Center to help connect employers with highly specialized sales pros. This specialized service, now accessible on the association’s web site at www.aa-isp.org, is open to both AA-ISP members and non-members and lets job seekers create profiles and post resumes for no charge while employers can list positions, view/search the resume database, and manage candidates via a pay per listing format.
Minneapolis, MN (WiredPRNews.com) With the launch of the new AA-ISP Inside Sales Career Center, the American Association of Inside Sales Professionals is helping to answer one of the top challenges facing Inside Sales Professionals today – connecting growth-focused employers with highly specialized Inside Sales Professionals. “The Inside Sales profession is experiencing explosive growth as companies recognize the high returns associated with virtual selling,” says Bob Perkins, Founder of the AA-ISP. “This trend is creating significant hiring challenges for employers and tremendous career opportunities for specialty skilled, job seekers. The newly created Career Center is designed to help our community address these challenges”, Perkins stated.
The Career Center was unveiled at last week’s Annual AA-ISP Inside Sales Leadership Summit and was met with great enthusiasm by the over 400 executives in attendance. This specialized service, now accessible on the association’s web site at www.aa-isp.org, is open to both AA-ISP members and non-members and lets job seekers create profiles and post resumes for no charge while employers can list positions, view/search the resume database, and manage candidates via a pay per listing format. “As we carry out our association’s mission to help the Inside Sales community address top challenges, we felt a need to take action and create a service that would bring these parties together,” Perkins adds. “It’s a service designed both to strengthen company growth efforts and further enhance the careers of Inside Sales Professionals.”
Member organizations already are expressing tremendous enthusiasm for the new service. “Given how quickly the number of Inside Sales jobs is growing, finding qualified candidates is a huge challenge facing hiring managers across all sizes of organizations and industries,” says David Chwalik, Vice President of Inside Sales at Pearson Education. “The AA-ISP Inside Sales Career Center is a welcomed response and will help connect highly-professional, qualified Inside Sales talent with organizations seeking these specialized skills. This focused approach is exactly what we needed as Inside Sales job growth explodes and finding qualified candidates becomes increasingly difficult,” stated Chwalik.
