RIMS New Career Center Connects Risk Management Talent with Open Jobs 6/3/2009

One month only economy special: Free 30-day job postings

NEW YORK (June 3, 2009) — Companies and recruiters can turn to the newly re-launched Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS) Career Center at www.RIMS.org/CareerCenter to fill open risk management positions. The upgraded website offers a multitude of resources for employers, recruiters and job seekers. And, in an effort to assist companies during the recession, RIMS is touting a special offer for the month of June—companies can post one job listing in RIMS Career Center free for 30 days—a savings of $130. Companies can post an open position at www.RIMS.org/JobBank by using reference code JBP09.

"RIMS Career Center is more than just a job bank," says Daniel H. Kugler, ARM, CEBS, CPCU, AIC, ACI, member of RIMS board of directors and assistant treasurer, risk management, at Snap-on, Inc. "It is designed for easy and convenient access to the wealth of services that RIMS provides to employers seeking to expand their risk management teams as well as risk managers in search of guidance on career planning and professional development."

RIMS Career Center offers employers and human resources professionals the ability to post jobs, search résumés of potential candidates and view sample risk management job descriptions. Employers can also access RIMS 2008 Risk Management Compensation Survey to compare their companies' compensation programs against other organizations.

Job seekers can:

  • post or build résumés;
  • view new career opportunities;
  • seek training programs;
  • use RIMS Risk Management Professional Growth Model to help design their careers;
  • network with other professionals in the Career Management and Education eGroup;
  • access executive recruiters who specialize in the risk management and insurance industries; and,
  • receive career counseling via the International Coach Federation.

In the Resources and Services section of the Career Center, risk professionals will find a wealth of information and valuable tips to help them shape career goals, find the right courses to learn new skills and risk management techniques, and even develop Enterprise Risk Management initiatives within their companies.

For students, RIMS Career Center now provides a dedicated Student Resource Center to make finding that first job or internship easier, including a link to the Spencer Educational Foundation Student Internship Program.
