The IoT M2M Council (IMC) has launched an interactive jobs board that provides its members and the embedded industries at large with an easy-to-use and highly targeted resource for online employment connections.
The IMC Career Center focuses on companies in the IoT sector and both members and non-members can use it to reach qualified candidates at:
"We're pleased to be able to act as a career hub for the industry because we know how critical it is for employers in the IoT sector to attract first-rate talent with a minimum expenditure of time and resources," says Joel Young, who serves as IMC chairman and is CTO at Digi International. "And it's important to help enable smooth career transitions for those seeking industry jobs."
Thanks to a joint development agreement with human-resource service provider Boxwood Career Solutions, the IMC Career Center already contains close to 1000 career openings that are specific to the IoT industry.
Employers can post jobs online, search for qualified candidates based on specific job criteria, and create an online resume agent to email qualified candidates daily. They also benefit from online reporting that provides job activity statistics.
For job seekers, the IMC Career Center is a free service that provides access to employers and jobs in the IoT industry. In addition to posting their resumes, job seekers can browse and view available jobs based on their criteria and save those jobs for later review if they choose. Job seekers can also create a search agent to provide email notifications of jobs that match their criteria.
The London-based IMC is the largest and fastest-growing trade group dedicated to the global IoT and M2M sector, with more than 25,000 members joining since February 2014. Board member-companies include Aeris, Digi International, HPE, Ingenu, Inmarsat, Intel, Kore, Laird, Orbcomm, MultiTech, PTC, Re-Teck, Semtech, Sigfox, Telit, U-Blox, Verizon, Vodafone and Wipro.
