Is Your CareerLinks ProFile Up To Date?

2016 is winding down and the off-season has arrived. With it, we know that the hiring season is approaching and the inevitable job changes will start taking place. Many of these changes will be simple as employers have a designed succession plan in place. It is common to see a current employee be groomed for promotion when his/her superior's position is vacated. One of the most familiar scenarios is when a head professional moves on and their seasoned assistant is promoted into that role. This is ideal because the golf operation doesn’t miss a beat and things keep humming along.

However, when a succession plan is not in place, opportunities do open. If you are interested in making a change, you must be ready. Yes, it is important that you tailor your resume and cover letter to put your best foot forward; but before you submit, you need to get details about the position. In addition to finding out from fellow Professionals, the Association offers employers use of two tools to get word out: CareerLinks and PGA JobFinder.
