Hackensack, NJ//July 17, 2002 – In response to growing consumer and
employer concerns about privacy issues, the nonprofit Privacy & American
Business (P&AB) announced today that it will make available the first
national online privacy and privacy-related job employment website –
Privacy Job Opportunity Boards (P-JOBs) – at www.pjobs.org. Now,
corporations, federal and state governments, and other privacy-conscious
organizations in the U.S. and abroad may target their search for privacy
officers and advertise other privacy-related job openings to those
qualified candidates who know or wish to enter the privacy arena.
Until its full-scale launch on September 3, P-JOBs will be temporarily
housed at P&AB’s website, http://www.pandab.org
and then move to its own
dedicated website. P&AB is currently accepting privacy job postings and
will also be advising their P&AB Members of these positions, as they are
submitted, through a special email alert before being posted on P-JOBs.
“There is a huge and growing demand from employers for professionals
with privacy related experience and training,” said Dr. Alan Westin,
President and Publisher of Privacy & American Business. “Smart
organizations are looking for both experienced and entry level privacy
and privacy-related staffers to ensure confidence in their consumer and
employee activities. We see this need as a growing one and are pleased
to provide a place to serve both employers and job seekers.”
The Privacy Job Opportunity Boards will be divided into three units. The
first section, P-JOBs, will advertise mid to high level positions
relating to privacy including HIPAA administration, HR administration,
database management, legal counsel, marketing, corporate communications,
new product development, and information security.
The second area, P-JOBsPlus, may be used to reach high level privacy
executives or Chief Privacy Officers who are responsible for overseeing
privacy for an entire organization, across industries.
The third feature, P-Temps, will assist companies seeking temporary
staff for special projects and as consultants.
With no registration required, P&AB invites job seekers to visit the
site free. For a nominal fee, companies and other organizations may post
their privacy employment opportunities on P-JOBs, while recruiters,
headhunters, and other executive search firms may advertise their
services, as well as specific positions. For more information, contact
