Association launches improved ABA Legal Career Central

The American Bar Association today announced the launch of its newly enhanced ABA Legal Career Central, a career center that connects legal professionals across all disciplines and career stages with employers offering career opportunities.

ABA Legal Career Central recently adopted the technology and sales support provided by YourMembership, a leading provider of job websites and career centers for organizations that serve specialized members, which will improve user offerings, including more targeted employment opportunities for job seekers and more marketing exposure for employers than before.

The ABA career center is now a robust source of up to thousands of legal job opportunities, and is distinguished by the following benefits:

For job seekers

- The ability to post anonymous résumés, allowing job seekers to be recruited while remaining in complete control over which employers view their complete information.

- Alerts every time a new job becomes available that matches job seekers' personal goals and interests.

- A mobile-responsive environment to ensure an optimal experience, regardless of the device being used.

- Availability of career resources, training and other benefits offered by the ABA to its members.

For employers

- Job exposure, such as through Flash-powered emails, to passive job-seeking legal professionals who do not visit job boards.

- Integration of job content into ABA social media channels to engage legal professionals and provide valuable job exposure to ABA audiences.

- Extensive brand advertising opportunities.

- The ability to gain exposure throughout YourMembership's network of nearly 2,500 niche Career Centers.

"Providing our members with opportunities for professional development and career growth are core to our mission to serve the legal profession," said ABA Executive Director Jack L. Rives. "Our newly implemented technology and sales support through YourMembership will ensure that our website provides ABA members with a clear connection to legal firms that value and seek the skills, expertise, certifications and training they have to offer."
