NRF Introduces Retail Industry Job Board
The National Retail Federation (NRF) has launched Retail Jobs powered by NRF, a recruiting and search tool developed for retailers and job seekers. The job board will serve as a key part of NRF’s “This is Retail: Careers, Community, Innovation” campaign, launched in April 2013 with the aim of broadening and enhancing perceptions of the industry.
“Whether in stores or corporate headquarters, retail offers incredible careers in fields like marketing, finance, technology, loss prevention, merchandising and management, and Retail Jobs powered by NRF is tangible proof that our industry offers diverse and unique career paths for some of the world’s most recognizable brands,” noted NRF Foundation executive director Ellen Davis. “Creating one job board for retailers to showcase the array of career opportunities that are available will help connect employers with fantastic candidates at all levels of the spectrum.”
Retail Jobs powered by NRF will give retail companies the opportunity to present the range of positions they have available. As well as job board postings, employers can have their jobs featured in daily e-mails to thousands of retail professionals via NRF and Shop.org SmartBriefs. NRF, Shop.org and ARTS members will receive a special member rate for posting their jobs. The tool is powered by JobTarget, the top provider of job websites and career centers for organizations that serve niche audiences.
Students in search of entry-level retail positions, as well as retail professionals and all other job seekers, can post resumes directly to the site for employers to search. Job seekers can take advantage of the targeted opportunities available and the option of posting an anonymous resume for retailers to view.
Washington-based NRF has also rolled out the complete version of its content-driven website. The site will feature industry research, interactive content and editorial posts by industry insiders, in addition to the new Retail Jobs powered by NRF job board.
