AFE Launches Career Center for the Floral Industry

AFE Launches Career Center for the Floral Industry The American Floral Endowment (AFE) has launched a new industry-wide Career Center to connect floral industry employers with job seekers, students, and other professionals pursuing careers in the floriculture and horticulture fields.

Within the new AFE Career Center’s intuitive platform, powered by YM Careers, employers can easily post job opportunities, screen and manage applications, and access a resume database of targeted candidates.  Job seekers will find it equally easy to post their resume and search for jobs and/or internships that match their skills and interests. The platform is completely mobile-responsive ― users can access it anytime, anywhere.

“Finding qualified, dedicated employees is one of the greatest challenges facing the floriculture industry. The Endowment maintains close connections with students, young professionals, floral businesses, and horticulture professionals, so it seemed a natural fit to provide a career-focused online community,” said Executive Director Debi Chedester.

Capabilities for the new career platform include:

“We see the AFE Career Center as the place where professionals and employers from all segments of the floral industry connect. We want it to be the hub where talent meets opportunity” said AFE Board Chairman Jim Daly of Smithers-Oasis/Floralife.
