Special/specific interest groups (SIGs), which may require membership of individuals, focus on specific topics for members. Often SIGs will have areas for job posting, or a variety of discussion boards where jobs can be posted. For example, the Women in Project Management SIG provides news on project management and also has a place for job advertisements. Other examples of SIGs might include the following:
- Oracle Developer SIG
- African American Medical Librarians Alliance SIG
- American Marketing Association Global Marketing SIG
- Special Interest Group for Accounting Information Systems (SIG-ASYS)
- Junior Lawyer SIG
Recruiting using SIGs can be a great way to target a specific group of people who are trained in a specific area or who have a certain specialty.
