The Association of the U.S. Army has launched a new career center, called AUSA Jobs Central, to connect soldiers, Army civilians, family members and industry with employers offering career opportunities.  

AUSA Jobs Central is powered by YM Careers, a two-decade-old company specializing in helping associations link their members with employers. 

“Providing our members with numerous opportunities for professional development and career growth is core to our mission,” said retired Lt. Gen. Patricia McQuistion, AUSA’s vice president for membership and meetings. “AUSA members are tremendous candidates for employers, with demonstrated values, exceptional training, effective teamwork and honed leadership skills. AUSA Jobs Central connects job seekers with businesses searching for the skills, expertise, certifications, and, in many cases, security clearances they have.”  

AUSA Jobs Central is a source of listings for thousands of job opportunities across all disciplines and career stages. Job seekers can post anonymous resumes, allowing for recruitment while retaining control over which prospective employers view their complete information.  

A free resume tool, by Top Resume, evaluates resumes for design and formatting, content and structure, keywords and skills and Applicant Tracking System compatibility, automated software used by 93% of hiring managers to filter candidates from the applicant pool. 

There is also an option for applicants to receive alerts each time a new job becomes available that matches their stated goals and interests.  

The site also offers a variety of options for employers, including opportunities to highlight jobs to passive job-seeking professionals who may not visit job boards, including via “Job Flash” emails to AUSA members who opt in. There are also extensive brand advertising opportunities for employers. 

In addition, the site allows job seekers and employers to gain exposure throughout YM Careers’ network of nearly 2,500 niche career centers.  

“AUSA is a world-class organization whose members are an integral part of the country’s workforce,” said Tristan Jordan, senior vice president and general manager at YM Careers. “AUSA Jobs Central is an innovative gateway that matches the right employers with the right talent to help keep companies well-staffed, and AUSA members’ careers moving along a professional path that meets their goals.”
