Toronto, Feb. 4, 2009 – International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA®), the professional association for Business Analysts, is launching an online career center to help employers and job seekers better connect during the global economic slow down.

“When hunting for talent with business analysis skills, the IIBA® career center offers employers the functionality of national job sites at more reasonable costs,” says IIBA® president Kathleen Barret. “Since our members in more than 80 chapters worldwide access the career center, employers can target their search to the most qualified people in the field wherever they happen to live.”

The IIBA® career center allows recruiters to register online and start posting jobs instantly. They can also search resumes posted by IIBA® members. “In today’s economic climate it is more important than ever to ensure every dollar is spent wisely,” says Barret. “Qualified Business Analysts can help organizations avoid costly mistakes by defining appropriate solutions before resources are allocated.”

The career center is located at www.iiba.org/careers. It offers job hunters a range of tools such as the option to search by company or geographical area. Job seekers can also post their resumes and set up email alerts to receive news about openings.

“It’s a robust career site that provides Business Analysts with the best tools available if they face possible cutbacks in their industries,” says Barret.
