DAM Guru Program to Host Virtual Digital Asset Management Job Fair

San Francisco, California – 19 September 2013 – DAM Guru Program, a free service that links Digital Asset Management (DAM) professionals with others who need their help, will host a month-long job fair to connect participating members with employers seeking to fill DAM-related positions. Sponsored by DAM Guru Program creator and digital asset management (DAM) software maker, Picturepark, the “DAM Pro Job Mashup” will make it easy for prospective employers to browse profiles for qualified applicants.

“As more employers seek to fill DAM-related positions, HR managers and recruiters realize they don’t know where to go to find qualified Digital Asset Management professionals,” explained DAM Guru Program manager, Ben Smidt. “DAM Guru Program offers one-stop shopping for hundreds of active DAM professionals from all over the world, so providing a job fair like this makes sense for everyone.”

In addition to posting profiles for its experienced DAM professional “Gurus,” DAM Guru Program has invited its “Newbie” members to participate too. Many of these members are looking for DAM internships or other entry-level positions that are not typically advertised on employer websites.

DAM Guru Program was launched in February of 2013. It has attracted professionals with varied backgrounds, including taxonomists, metadata designers, librarians and information professionals (MLIS) and, of course, Digital Asset Management system designers, users, administrators and generalists. DAM Guru Program memberships are free. All program expenses are sponsored by Picturepark.

The “DAM Pro Job Mashup” starts October 1, 2013 and continues throughout the month. There is no charge to participate, for members or prospective employers. DAM professionals who wish to participate but are not yet members of DAM Guru Program can sign up at http://DAMGuru.com/signup
