| July 19, 2010

WASHINGTON. – The American Nursery and Landscape Association announced the winner of the ANLA Job Board's "Big Fish, Little Pond" contest. Ralph DeGregorio, a plant and soil scientist out of Arlington, Massachusetts, has won an Apple iPad for posting his resume on ANLA's Job Board. Ralph was chosen at random from 72 individuals, including students and professionals seeking jobs in retail, growing landscape and distribution, who had posted their resume on the site by July 1.  

With its focus on green industry companies, the ANLA Job Board offers its members, and the green industry at large, an easy-to-use and highly targeted resource for online employment connections.  While ANLA members receive preferred pricing, both members and non-members can use the ANLA Job Board to reach qualified candidates. Employers can post jobs online, search for qualified candidates based on specific job criteria, and create an online resume agent to e-mail qualified candidates daily. They also benefit from online reporting that provides job activity statistics.

For job seekers, the ANLA Job Board is a free service that provides access to employers and jobs in the green industry. In addition to posting their resumes, job seekers can browse and view available jobs based on their criteria and save those jobs for later review if they choose.
