Alexandria, Virginia -- The US International Sleep Products Association (ISPA) has created a job board on its website to help association members and mattress industry professionals match vacancies to those looking for work.
The new online ISPA Job Board aims to help member companies with job openings match up with appropriate professionals searching for positions in the mattress manufacturing or supplier sector.
Job openings can be posted free of charge to ISPA member companies and are available for anyone to view, said a 10 March statement from the association.
Individuals looking for positions within the industry can post resumes for potential employers to review.
"As a result of the economic downturn, we're seeing more and more talented professionals across the sector who are finding themselves out of work," noted ISPA president and ceo Dick Doyle, in the announcement. "We want to provide a means for these individuals to post their resumes so that potential employers can readily find the talent they need to flourish as the economy rebounds."
"We have received calls from employers looking for a way to reach potential employees and from those laid off looking to stay in the industry. This is one more benefit we can offer now to help out," added Debi Sutton, ISPA vice president of marketing and member services.
