If I am an AAMSE member, do I still need to create an account to use Career Connection?

Yes, your Job Seeker account is separate. This allows you to have a separate email address and separate information in your job seeker account.

To use some parts of Career Connection, you will need to set up a user account. Your account will allow you to post and manage job openings, search and manage job candidates, create a company profile, and much more.

Since current AAMSE members receive discounts on certain products, be sure and indicate that you are a member when creating your account. It will ask for your member number to confirm your member status. To obtain this, please contact

For further assistance with Career Connection, please contact our job board hosts at

Why do I always get logged out? It seems I always have to log back in.

For your security, the software logs you out automatically after 30 minutes of inactivity. If you are using your own computer, you can deactivate this feature. Next time you log in, check the "Save my login information" box. This will keep you logged in from your computer until you log out of your account by clicking the "Logout" link.

What is "My Message Box"?

This area will contain messages sent from employers and from the administrator. Many employers prefer using this to email because it is more organized and convenient for them. You will be notified by email if a new message exists in your message inbox.

What are "My Job Applications"?

Contained in this area are the jobs that you have applied for through the software. This does not contain any jobs for which you faxed your resume or applied in any other way than through our website. You may store notes on these jobs by clicking the "+" icon. You may also review the application you submitted by clicking the "View" link. After three months time, these applications will automatically be removed from this area by our system.

What are "My Saved Jobs"?

You are able to set aside jobs that interest you from the job listings. When you save one of these jobs, it gets stored in your "My Saved Jobs" area. You can then come back to "My Saved Jobs" after you are through with your job search and apply to the jobs you have saved. Once you apply for one of the jobs, it automatically gets removed from this section and moved to the "My Job Applications" section.

How can I change my email address and other account information?

To update your account information, log into your Job Seeker account and go to the “Account Home” section. In the Quick Links area, you will see a link titled "Edit Account Settings." On this page, you can change your account information. You will be required to enter your password to make these changes.

I no longer want notifications sent to me. Is there a way that I can turn that off?

Yes. Log in to your Job Seeker account, go to the “Account Home” section, and in the Quick Links area, you will see a link titled "Edit Account Settings." On this page, scroll to the "My Job Boards" area and select the "don't contact me" option. Please note that this will only prevent you from receiving general informational emails from us. If you have a Career Profile up, you may still receive Contact Requests from employers to your email. Likewise, if you have a Job Alert running, it will continue to send you emails of job matches. If you do not want these, stop your job agents and set your Career Profile to inactive.

How do I delete my account?

Please contact Customer Support at or 860-440-0635 if you would like to delete your account.

How can I use keywords to search jobs?

When using a keyword, our search engine looks for the existence of that keyword in the job description. If it finds your search word, it presents that job as one of the matching results. To improve your search, you may use combinations of keywords. You may use "and" or "or" to help you find the results you want. Placing the word “and” between keywords will make sure only jobs containing both those keywords are returned as matches. Placing the word “or” between keywords will return jobs containing either of those keywords.

What is a "Saved Search"?

A saved search remembers a search you performed in the past. In the future, if you want to run a quick and convenient search again, all it takes is clicking the "Run" link next to the saved search you want to run.

Why do some jobs not have an "Apply" link/button?

Some of the jobs listed may not have a link or button that lets you apply through our website. The reason for this is some employers prefer to receive their applications in a different format. For example, some employers may require that you visit their website and apply there; others may only want to receive faxed resumes, etc. To apply for jobs like this, simply follow the instructions in the ad or apply using any contact information provided in the ad. If there is no visible way to apply for a posting, please create a support ticket and someone in our customer service department will assist you.

Why do some job listings not have a link to the company profile?

This may be because the company does not have a profile or because the company decided to remove the link from their posting.

On the search result page, I do not see the link to "My Saved Jobs".

You can only access your saved jobs if you are logged in. The "My Saved Jobs" option disappears when you are not logged in. Log in to your Job Seeker account and it will reappear.

What is a Job Alert?

A Job Alert is an automated search that runs each night (or week). It looks for new job opportunities that have been posted that match your job search criteria. When it finds a match, it emails you a brief summary of the job with a link to the job description. Job Alerts make sure you do not miss any new opportunities.

How do I stop my Job Alert?

To stop your Job Alert, log in to your Job Seeker account and go to the Job Alerts section. In the "My Job Alerts" area, click the "Stop" link next to the alert you want to stop. Its status will then change to "stopped." To delete the Job Alert, click the "Delete" link next to the one you want to permanently delete.

Why doesn't my Job Alert email me any jobs?

There are a number of possible reasons your Job Alert is not emailing you any jobs. First, it is possible that your Job Alert criteria are too specific and no new jobs have been posted that match your specific search criteria. You may want to try broadening your search criteria to increase the odds that a match is found. A second possibility is that your email provider or your computer is blocking our emails. Sometimes spam protections are set too strictly and it prevents our emails from getting through. You may need to alter the settings of your privacy firewall software on your computer or contact your email provider to learn more.

What is the Management Library and how do I submit materials?
