Career Opportunities: Calling all Job Seekers!

AFE Career Center’s Resume Bank Provides Connections Between Candidates and Companies

After the pandemic, the rules for finding a new job changed. Gone are the days of physically handing or mailing in your resume and waiting for a call about the position. Now, nearly all job search communications happen electronically. When you’re hunting for a new job, the biggest challenge is always knowing where to start, and that’s where the AFE Career Center is here to help.

Find new opportunities today! We encourage all individuals interested in a career in the floral industry to upload their resumes to the AFE Career Center. With the Spring hiring season right around the corner, job seekers will benefit from being first in line for new jobs and gaining access to the wide range of career resources offered. As a further incentive, AFE will be gifting Amazon gift cards to three lucky individuals who upload their resumes before Dec. 31st, 2022. 

Launched in the spring of 2020, just before the COVID-19 shutdowns, the AFE Career Center was developed for companies hiring recruits and for individuals looking for career options and new opportunities within the floriculture and horticulture industries. The AFE Career Center is positioned strategically to help companies search for new employees and to help those seeking new employment. Because resumes and cover letters are an essential part of the job application process, ensuring information is available where industry professionals are engaging will increase the potential of the right person seeing your resume. Likewise, using an Industry-specific board to post your resume, like the one offered through the AFE Career Center, will narrow your search and allow you to monitor what is happening in the industry, leading you to the perfect position.

With only two years of activity, the AFE Career Center has seen a steady increase in engagement, with over 1,000 job views/direct clicks every month and nearly 2,000 job postings. Positions posted range from internships to leadership positions and cover most segments of the floral industry. For the site to reach its full potential, it will take dedicated effort from those seeking to recruit and those looking for job opportunities. Like most things, a career center is only as good as the information in it. Therefore, it is vitally important that dedicated job seekers upload their resumes and utilize the wide range of resources offered. The leadership at AFE believes that as the AFE Career Center grows and expands, it can easily connect thousands of qualified candidates with employers.

In addition to providing networking opportunities, easy-to-manage resume posting, an insider perspective on current industry job listings, and real-time job alerts, the AFE Career Center offers individuals valuable online career tools, resources, and industry guides that help direct them into a career path suited to their strengths and interests.

With all the benefits and increased opportunities the AFE Career Center provides, AFE encourages anyone in the market for new career opportunities to take advantage of the tools and resources within the portal. The floriculture industry is diverse and growing. Prospects reach far beyond the expected floral design or grower-related jobs. One may be surprised by the range of careers in the world of flowers.

It’s never too early to post your resume. With the help of the AFE Career Center, you will expand your resources, streamline your search, find opportunities, and discover a variety of promising career choices. Post your resume today and build your dream career.
