Behavioral Health-Specific Online Job Posting Resources [2.2.2.e.1]

Job posting on behavioral health Web sites is often free and can help find candidates with the skills most relevant to your organization. The following are a sample of the behavioral health specific online job postings sites and resources:
  • The Northwest Frontier Addiction Technology Transfer Center (NFATTC) serves Alaska, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, and the Pacific Islands. It provides online job posting for positions in the field of addiction for those regions. The ATTC also offers similar services through their other regional centers.
  • The American Society of Addition Medicine (ASAM) provides an online Career Center to meet the needs of both employers and job seekers. Employers have targeted access to quality addiction medicine professionals.
  • The U.S. Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association (USPRA) Web site has an interactive, online Career Center for making employment connections in the psychiatric rehabilitation field. It allows for easy job posting and provides online job activity reports. Employers also have access to the National Healthcare Career Network (NHCN), which includes more than 200 top health care associations and professional organizations, including the American Hospital Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, and the Association of American Medical Colleges.
  • The National Association of Social Work (NASW) Web site hosts a Social Work CareerCenter. Employers can find and recruit qualified, credentialed, and licensed social workers for positions that span across the duration of a social worker’s professional career. The Career Center is listed under “Find a Social Work Job.”
  • The American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists Web site has an online job connection resource that allows job posting. Positions posted must seek candidates who are licensed (or license-eligible) in marriage and family therapy or have a degree (master's or doctorate) in marriage and family therapy.
  • An expanded list identifies behavioral health organizations and whether they currently include behavioral health job search/job posting resources on their Web site. This list also provides information on the pricing levels for ad placement; timing of ad placement; types of job that are accepted for posting; who can search for or post a job position; the availability of job seeking supports and resources for individuals; the availability of resources for organizations seeking employees; the ability to post a resume; and the ability to search a resume. This list captures “point in time” information so please consult the organization/associate Web site for updated information.
