The International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) is continually searching for ways to provide support and services to its members. Most recently, ISSA has entered into a relationship with FitnessJobs.com. Ranked the #1 Fitness Job website by both Google and Yahoo, FitnessJobs.com provides employers in the fitness industry with access to qualified candidates.
“FitnessJobs.com is a lot more fine-tuned than a classified ad or other sites that employers might use,” says Sandy Reszke, Executive Assistant at Power Wellness, “It is very specific to the industry and I’ve recommended the site to a lot of people hunting for jobs or employees.”
An applicant seeking a position in the fitness, health, recreation and leisure industry can browse and search job postings for free whether or not they register. If a job seeker chooses to register at no cost, the site will remember their various preferences.
Dave Parise, C.E.O. of Results Personal Training, holds that “Trainers who apply online at FitnessJobs.com are more professional and have the knowledge and understanding of what they are looking for. This makes the recruitment procedures far more enjoyable and pinpoints our ability to find the ‘right’ candidate.”
Employers seeking to post ads, search resumes or create job alerts must register in order to do so. While registration is also free for employers, there is a cost to post jobs and/or search resumes. As a result of its newly established alliance with FitnessJobs.com, the International Sports Sciences Association is now providing an exclusive 20% discount of these recruiting costs to those of their members who want to list jobs online. This special offer, available only to ISSA members, helps club managers cut back on hiring costs while still gaining access to a quality recruitment service. The discount is directed towards any member of ISSA who has recruitment needs, whether a small club or studio owner/operator or a recruiter for multi-club organization.
“I would definitely recommend FitnessJobs.com to both employers and applicants in the fitness industry,” says Sal Arria, CEO and Co-Founder of the International Sports Sciences Association. “Not only is the site easy to use, but it understands what club owners and operators are looking for and returns effective and relevant results. Qualified candidates can rest assured that their resumes are being submitted for actual fitness positions and will be read rather than filtered out with another thousand irrelevant results.”
Founded in 1998 by Alan Cohen, a 30 year veteran of the health and fitness industry, FitnessJobs.com is ranked the #1 Fitness Job website by Google and Yahoo. The latest website version has all the critical recruitment features for both employers and job seekers in the fitness, health, recreation and leisure industry. Information about free registration can be found by visiting them online at http://www.fitnessjobs.com
Since 1988 the International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) has provided certification and continuing education to over 75,000 satisfied fitness professionals. ISSA certifications are recognized worldwide. From Youth Fitness to Senior Fitness, ISSA offers 10 certification programs and dozens of continuing education courses.
