Help for the Job Search

The Waste Equipment Technology Association (WASTEC), Washington, D.C., and Waste Recruiters, Burleson, Texas, are creating an online employment center for WASTEC's Web site. The center, which was scheduled to begin operating by late December, will allow people looking for employment in the solid waste industry to search job listings. Job seekers also can post their resumes and register with Waste Recruiters. The firm will try to match them with employers.

Solid waste companies also can use the online center to get Waste Recruiters to locate candidates to fill job openings. The company will be charged a fee if it hires someone that was referred by Waste Recruiters.

“It can be tough to find quality people,” says Gary Satterfield, executive vice president for WASTEC. “This is our way of bringing people who have jobs and those who are interested in jobs together.”
