According to TMA President Bruce Braker, the Association of more than 1,200 companies with nearly 60,000 workers implemented the job board on their website to help new job seekers and workers looking for new employment opportunities in precision manufacturing-related industries.
"TMACareerNet.com allows individuals interested in a career in manufacturing a place to post their resumes for free and peruse dozens of career opportunities in the precision manufacturing capital of the United States -- Chicago," Braker said.
TMA members include tool and die and plastic mold makers, metal machining and stamping shops; metal forging and die casting companies, as well as other precision manufacturers and their suppliers.
TMACareerNet.com offers a number of advanced features. These include a Job Alert system that notifies job seekers by email of new job opportunities that match their search criteria and an anonymous resume feature that enables job seekers to list their experience and qualifications in a protected environment. By giving both active and passive job seekers the ability to anonymously post their resumes, the JobTarget service allows job seekers to stay connected to the employment market while maintaining full control of their confidential information.
About TMA: The Tooling & Manufacturing Association was founded in 1925 by eight Chicago manufacturing companies with the goal of improving their industry through exchanging ideas and improving training for their workers. Through the years, members established programs and services that would help their businesses grow and prosper, train their employees, and provide medical and retirement benefits. As a result of these efforts, TMA has become a 1,200 member not-for-profit organization of precision manufacturing and supplier companies in the greater Chicago area.
