How Do Member Companies Use DirectEmployers Association?

Why should an employer join DirectEmployers Association? How do companies use their DirectEmployers Association membership? I’ll be the first to admit, we provide a lot, so it can be difficult to cover everything in an elevator speech. Many of our Members are federal contractors, so they might initially join for access to tools and resources to assist with VEVRAA and Section 503. Others join for the job distribution and recruiting solutions. Ideally, we hope Members will maximize all of the benefits!

  • ABB uses My.jobs Microsites and the My.jobs Network for visibility in search engines to reach candidates with a specific and unique skill set, like electrical engineering and robotics, in addition to target small and rural locations.
