The cost for this ad is not included with your Employment Center registration fee. Note: candidates are encouraged to begin reviewing Employment Listings and start applying for jobs in August.

To place an ad in Employment Listings please:


You must be logged in as an employer to create a listing.

If you do not have an employer account and need to create one, please go here:



CV Submission and Review System

Provided you have registered for the Employment Center, you can get to the CV System here, if you are logged in. If not, first log in here if you have an account. If not, create one here

Once you register with the Center as an employer, you can access CVs. Within two business days, you will be emailed instructions for sharing access with other search team members. CVs will be accessible until February 17, 2017.

CVs are categorized by field of specialization and searchable by both specialization and candidate name.

If you do not receive your instructions via e-mail, contact careers@aarsbl.org or 404-727-2286. Be sure to check your spam e-mail folder as the instructions are sent automatically by the system and might therefore be interpreted as spam or junk mail.


Message Center

Employers will be able to confidentially communicate with candidates using the email Message Center.  Employers, once registered for the Employment Center, will be assigned a unique email address.

Private Interview Rooms

Employers who wish to arrange for a Private Interview Room in addition to semi-private booth space in the Interview Hall may request access to this limited space during preregistration.

If you have questions about scheduling time in one of the Private Interview Rooms, please contact careers@aarsbl.org or 404-727-2286. Reservations cannot be taken prior to the completion of the employer registration process.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for Employers

Is everyone on the interview team required to register for the Annual Meetings in order to use the Employment Center?

Yes, only those people who are registered for the Annual Meetings may utilize the Employment Center. You may register as either an AAR member, SBL member, joint member, or at the nonmember registration rate. All team members must be registered for the Annual Meetings.

To what services will my institution have access if we register onsite?

Institutions that register onsite will have access to the same services as those institutions that preregister with the following exception:

Onsite registrants cannot reserve Private Interview Rooms or Interview Hall space prior to arriving onsite. Space is on a first-come, first-served basis. We will try to accommodate your requests once you register onsite, but there are no guarantees that your top preferences will still be available.

We want to interview an Annual Meetings registrant. Does this candidate have to register with the Employment Center?

No. All registered Annual Meetings participants may interview as invited without registering for the Employment Center. However, an Annual Meetings name badge is required for admittance to all Annual Meetings activities and areas, including the Employment Center.

Does participating in the Employment Center guarantee that we’ll find someone to fill the position?

No, it does not. The Employment Center facilitates communication between candidates and employers. It is not a placement service.

How can my team inspect candidate credentials?

All registered candidates have the opportunity to file a CV. Registered employers will be able to view the CVs online until February 17, 2018. Candidates are not required to submit a CV, but they are highly encouraged to do so.

What is my Employment Center email address?

All employers are assigned a unique email that allows for confidential communication with candidates. Access information and instructions are sent to account holders just before the Annual Meetings. 

What is the difference between an interview booth and a Private Interview Room?

As part of the registration package, all registered employers receive booth space during Employment Center hours of operation. The booths are curtained units located in the Interview Hall, each containing one table and four to six chairs. The majority of registered employers use this space for their interviews.

Private Interview Rooms (hotel parlors) are available on a first-come, first-serve basis to Employment Center registrants for an additional fee. 

What are open interviews? What are prearranged interviews?

Open interviews are when employers set up interviews with candidates onsite. Interviews are arranged onsite when a request is sent through the Message Center, a response is given, and a time selected and confirmed completely through the Message Center by the candidate and employer.

Prearranged interviews are when an employer schedules an interview with a candidate who has already applied for the position prior to the start of the Employment Center (generally the candidate has sent in an application through the job adt posted on Employment Listings). Such employers are not expected to respond to general inquiries.

How do we use the Message Center?

Retrieving Messages: Messages for employers are accessed by email. Employers are highly encouraged to check their mailbox regularly. Please respond to applicant messages. All materials in the employer’s mailbox are confidential, and only authorized persons may retrieve or review their contents.

Leaving Messages: Messages may be left for candidates through the Message Center. Candidates will be responsible for checking their personal email regularly.

Where does an employer meet an interview at the time of an interview?

Candidates with interviews in the Interview Hall wait in the Candidate Lounge (located within the Employment Center). Employers meet candidates at the lounge to greet and escort them to their assigned booth space.

When an interview has been scheduled in a Private Interview Room, candidates will need to check with the Private Interview Room Check-in Desk, located within the Employment Center, to find out where they should go. Please instruct candidates that they need to inquire with the Private Interview Room Check-in Desk at least 20 minutes ahead of their scheduled interview as the distance between the Employment Center and the Private Interview Rooms can sometimes be a bit of a walk.

How can I contact Employment Center staff?

If you wish to speak to the Employment Center staff prior to November 17, you may e-mail careers@aarsbl.org or call 404-727-2286. After November 16, you will need to visit the Employment Center during its hours of operation.
