NRF unveils 'Retail Jobs' tool for retailers & job seekers

Jun '13
The National Retail Federation announced the launch of Retail Jobs powered by NRF, a unique recruiting and search tool developed for retailers and job seekers.

The job board will serve as a fundamental part of NRF’s This is Retail: Careers, Community, Innovation campaign, which was launched in April 2013 in an effort to broaden and enhance perceptions of the industry.

“Whether in stores or corporate headquarters, retail offers incredible careers in fields like marketing, finance, technology, loss prevention, merchandising and management, and Retail Jobs powered by NRF is tangible proof that our industry offers diverse and unique career paths for some of the world’s most recognizable brands,” said NRF Foundation Executive Director Ellen Davis.

“Creating one job board for retailers to showcase the array of career opportunities that are available will help connect employers with fantastic candidates at all levels of the spectrum.”

Retail Jobs powered by NRF, located at jobs.nrf.com, will provide retail companies the opportunity to showcase the assortment of positions they have available. In addition to job board postings, employers have an opportunity to have their jobs featured in daily emails to thousands of retail professionals via NRF and Shop.org SmartBriefs.

NRF, Shop.org and ARTS members will receive a special member rate for posting their jobs. Retail Jobs powered by NRF is powered by JobTarget, the leading provider of job websites and career centers for organizations that serve niche audiences.

Students looking for entry-level positions for a career in retail, as well as retail professionals and all other job seekers, can post resumes directly to the site for employers to search. Job seekers will benefit from the targeted opportunities available and the option to post an anonymous resume for retailers to view.

This is Retail: Careers, Community, Innovation Website Showcases Unique Content, Case Studies and Powerful Retail Stories

NRF also unveiled the complete version of its innovative, content-driven website, thisisretail.org. The website will house industry research, interactive content editorial posts by industry insiders, and the newly-created Retail Jobs powered by NRF job board.

Highlights of This is Retail include:

Dynamic, original content including a creative slideshow of the “most weirdly awesome” retail jobs and a careers road map that helps candidates decide which area of retail suits their skill set best.

Personal stories from retailers and industry partners highlighting careers, community and innovation with a focus on how working within the retail has impacted them personally and professionally.

Statistics that tell the compelling story of how the nation’s largest private employer affects individuals across the country by providing exciting career opportunities, community initiatives at the local and national levels and the best customer experience possible through new and innovative technologies and creative thinking.

The NRF Foundation shapes retail’s future by building awareness of the industry through statistics and stories; developing talent through education, experiences and scholarships; and fostering career growth among people who work in retail. The NRF Foundation is the 501(c)(3) nonprofit arm of the National Retail Federation and is funded in part by generous donations from retail industry supporters.
