Jobs

Don’t believe people who say that no one hires in December.

Our New Candidate Search Option is a Winner

One of the first steps in updating the HealthyPeople website was to make it easier for employers to connect with local fitness professionals. The following video outlines the improvements.

UPDATE (16/02/2016): Video indicates that search result order is by; Promoted > Those registered with FITREC, FA or PAA > Last active. Feedback was that ‘Last active’ was more important than ‘Registered’, so this change has been made.

Fitness Employers, want access great local candidates? Log in (or sign up).

As the wait extends, it’s easy to allow your mind to start telling yourself that maybe you bombed. Maybe they hated you. Maybe it’s hopeless. Continue reading
