What Specialty should I select?

We recommend selecting the Specialties that best fit your experience. You may select any one Category at a time and as many Specialties as you would like, within that one Category.

These Specialties will allow employers using our site to select the Category of candidates they are searching for.

These can be updated any time. Simply click your name in the top right corner of the screen, and then click “Job Preferences” from the left hand menu.

Select the most relevant Category to what your job function is, and then select the Specialties. 

Only select the Specialties that are relevant to your job:

Industries can be selected later on when you run a search. Your Category and Specialty may for example be selected as Accounting, and your Industry can later on be selected as Pharmaceuticals and Biotech or Finance and Insurance. Within each Industry the function of an Accounting position would be the same.
