Boost careers and build loyalty with our innovative suite of products.
Since 1998, Boxwood clients have generated $400+ million in non-dues revenue through their career centers. Built exclusively for associations, a Boxwood Career Center puts your brand—not ours—front and center. In addition to building the association’s brand, this approach generates significantly better SEO results for your association’s website. A state-of-the-art, fully transparent reporting platform guarantees real-time access to crucial data, including revenue generated from your job postings.
The Boxwood technology platform and approach to the market is unique. Everything is geared to promote an association’s job board, promote membership and demonstrate value to members. Our association-focused approach also helps you secure one of your most valuable assets—your data. Your association—and your association alone—controls your data. Boxwood will never use your data for our own purposes. We only succeed when your career center thrives. Associations have taken notice:
Boxwood is the leading career center solution for associations and the only one endorsed by ASAE 13 years in a row.
Boxwood is the industry leader with the first network, e-mentoring system, mobile-optimized job board and career center Facebook application, to name a few. Deliver top-notch professional development and advancement opportunities with Boxwood Career Solutions.
Boxwood is the only career center provider to have been endorsed by ASAE every year since 2002.
Career Center Content Solutions is another “first” we’re proud to offer. Launched in 2015, this service ensures associations are delivering more than just jobs through their career center. Robust professional development content integrated with your career center makes it a go-to resource for all members–not just your job seekers.
The most advanced job board technology has its advantages: More jobs posted on the Boxwood platform find their way to the top of job seekers’ online searches than postings on other platforms. Better still, those top-ranked postings take the job seeker to your association’s career center, not to a third-party website. The improved traffic Boxwood career centers enjoy gives employers the motivation to invest their recruiting efforts – and budget – in your association.
Boxwood job boards offer your association, and more importantly your users, all the features you expect from a state-of-the-art technology solution. We take the power of our platform and marry it with online best practices to deliver the most comprehensive and successful career centers in your industry.

Career Fairs: Virtual and Onsite
Career fairs are an important component in helping members advance their careers. Onsite career fairs often accompany annual meetings, while virtual career fairs have been gaining popularity as a way to complement in-person events. Leveraging the expertise of our event solutions and communications businesses, Boxwood can fully manage and market onsite and virtual career fairs for associations.
Virtual Career Fairs
Boxwood’s Virtual Career Fairs are another way for your association to play a key role in the career development of your membership, drive traffic to your website, and generate non-dues revenue. Job seekers learn about employers, view and apply for positions, and even chat with recruiters. Employers gain access to your highly qualified talent pool without the expense associated with in-person events.
Virtual Career Fairs increase the visibility and value of your career center. They also serve as a great extension of traditional onsite career fairs by allowing you to offer a virtual “meet and greet” a few days before the live event to enhance the in-person experience. They also build your employers’ audience through the requirement that all virtual fair attendees register with your career center.
Boxwood will help you every step of the way. We’ll market the event to your job seekers and employers, manage the customer service for employers and job seekers participating in the fully integrated virtual career fair event. We’ll even manage the billing/collections for the job posting and registration fees employers pay to attend the event.
And, the Virtual Career Fair comes integrated with your Career Center enabling you to cross-promote each service – increase your site traffic and revenue opportunities at the same time!

Boxwood editors curate industry-specific content relevant to an association’s members on a monthly basis.
