Your association might have a skills workshop series that addresses industry-specific professional development needs, and online or offline programs or resources available to help members plan their desired career track. Associations do a great job providing professional development for their members and stakeholders, says Boxwood Career Solutions' Carrie McIntyre, but could help themselves and their members further by thinking of their career-related tools under a banner of "career management." "The terms 'talent management' or 'career management' (when referring to an online career center) elevate the site in the minds of members from a place they should visit only when looking for Members who are encouraged to take advantage of your association's career-related materials will realize more value from their membership. a new job to a portal they need to visit regularly to ensure they're aware of every available career advancement tool," McIntyre said. Furthermore, she stressed, "Referring to a career-related website as a hub for career management frequented by the active and passive job seekers whose attention employers want to grab can increase companies' investment in your site. Positioning your career center as an all-in-one talent management tool will increase employer buy-in and the non-dues revenue your association may be able to earn." Shifting the focus from professional development and the use of job boards to the all-encompassing idea of ongoing career management can result in increased satisfaction from your members and supporting employers. Members who are encouraged to take advantage of your association's career-related materials will realize more value from their membership. Meanwhile, increased contact with members online will result in higher ROI for your career center-supporting employers.
