ATLANTA – ASHRAE members now have increased opportunities to find jobs within their chosen field under an expanded jobs board.
The expansion between ASHRAE and BirdDog, which have worked together since 2009 to provide job board support at www.ASHRAEjobs.com, will make it easier for employers to fill built environment technology positions, as well as provide ASHRAE members with increased opportunities to find jobs within their chosen fields. The expanded ASHRAEjobs site specifically allows employers, looking to hire ASHRAE members, to post their listings throughout the BirdDog family of job boards, as well as ensure all ASHRAE members have the opportunity to see the job posting.
“Our members are in high demand, and that’s good news,” Tim Wentz, volunteer chair of ASHRAE’s Publishing and Education Council, which oversees ASHRAEjobs.com. “Unfortunately, like so many industries, companies wanting to or already employing ASHRAE members, report troubles finding the right candidate. The improved ASHRAEjobs site, along with its four years of history, gives us the foundation to expand our efforts and ensure the right talent is being matched up with right job.”
“It had become evident in the past year that there was a gap between what we had in place and an increasing demand for both employers and job seekers to have a solution that was both effective and efficient,” Bryan May of BirdDog said.
This announcement comes at a time where employers are reporting difficulties finding qualified candidates for open positions. ASHRAE members are the global leaders of building technology. To qualify as a full ASHRAE member, a minimum of 12 years professional experience must be shown in the industry.
The new service launched April 15, 2013. Employers who have questions about the expanded partnership should contact Bryan May at 515-473-9212.
BirdDog provides a cloud-based recruitment and applicant tracking software to small and medium sized companies across the country that simplifies the hunt for right-fit candidates.

The Society and its members focus on building systems, energy efficiency, indoor air quality, refrigeration and sustainability within the industry.
