Special/Specific Interest Groups (SIGs)

30 October, 2015 - 11:07

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.
