Departments that have a job vacancy and will be represented at the meeting are encouraged to send a job description and the name of their representative. Individuals seeking employment, and who are planning to attend the meeting, should also send a C.V. by November 1. Also, in cooperation with APSA, we can use the Placement Service element of APSA’s E-Jobs system to arrange interviews. Through E-Jobs, employers and candidates indicate their availability for interviews during the NPSA meeting. Employers would then contact the candidates to confirm attendance, and to arrange meetings at the conference. Access to the E-Jobs database is free for APSA members (individuals and departments).
