The Employment Service was established in 1985 by the World Aquaculture Society to assist its membership and the international aquaculture community with job and career information. The annual posting of jobs and resumes at WAS and US Aquaculture Society (USAS) meetings, and the online job and resume databases via the Internet serve as a clearinghouse for employment opportunities and information. The job and resume databases are maintained throughout the year by the Employment Service Coordinator. Please contact the Employment Service Coordinator with all your comments, questions and suggestions.
We’ll be Celebrating Our 30th Anniversary Soon and Would Enjoy Hearing from You
Few people are aware that the Employment Service (ES) is approaching 30 years of continuous operation, and was first held at the 16th annual meeting of the World Mariculture Society from January 13-17, 1985 in Orlando, Florida. Since then, the ES and has developed and grown over the years into a Web based exchange for employment and career information in aquaculture, fisheries, and the aquatic sciences accessed in all 50 states and the District of Columbia and 174 countries. More than 15,500 job announcements, and 12,000 CVs have been posted since going online in 1994.
If the Employment Service has helped you to find a job or an employee or has been a benefit to you in any other way we would like to hear about your experience for an article that will be published in World Aquaculture magazine early next year. Please send your comments to John Ewart, and thank you for your continuing interest and support
