Job Postings

Hidden jobs are welcomed for sharing at jobs@augustgroup.org. If the job your neighbor, friend or family shared with you is not right for you, it might be perfect for an August Group colleague.  This is a great place for practicing "give to get." With 1600 members, what can happen here when members own the content?

We welcome volunteers to coordinate the job postings on a weekly basis. Employers and members submit jobs that must be readied for inclusion in the job posting section of the website.


For Job Posting please visit the Job Posting section of THE AUGUST GROUP website. You must be registered and login to view job postings.


Career Sites

If you have a career site that you would like to share with others please send the link to newsletter@augustrgroup.org and put "Link to share" in the Subject Line.

Links to share

Got a link you want to share?  Send it to newsletter@augustrgroup.org and put "Link to share" in the Subject Line.

This seems like a great resource – they offer free job aids (reference sheets) for Word, Outlook, PPT, Access, Excel, Project, Visio, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and more…….. you can also sign on for free training and paid training….

They state that it’s spam free…..

I’m not affiliated with them at all, so I’m not recommending them beyond saying that their content looks good. I just downloaded a few….so I’m new to them as well.
