ASDSO said it launched the new service, the Student Employment Opportunities Clearinghouse, in response to what it sees as a dwindling supply of college graduates qualified to enter the specialized field.
Employers who provide internships and other employment opportunities in dam engineering and dam safety-related fields can post information at no charge in the Career Center on ASDSO's Internet site, www.damsafety.org.
ASDSO offers a number of other opportunities for students, including annual scholarship awards up to $10,000 (HNN 1/24/08), and a Speakers Bureau of dam safety experts who can make presentations to student groups. Complimentary registration is available for students who attend the organization's regional and national conferences.
ASDSO, a non-profit organization headquartered in Lexington, is dedicated to improving dam safety through research, education, and communication.
