Featured Opportunity at SBAN - Career Services Volunteer

One of SBAN's goals is to serve as a forum for career advice, opportunities and other services to our members.  The great news is that as our network grows, more and more members are using SBAN for this purpose!  In order to continue to be successful in this endeavor, however, SBAN needs a talented individual to dedicate their time and experience to maintain and strengthen the quality of career services we provide. 
The Career Services Volunteer will have the opportunity to manage a database of job opportunities, cover letters and resumes, job-seeking tools, recruiting tools, and other career advice.  He/She will also be responsible for thinking of innovative ways and creative tools to provide career-related information to SBAN members.
