Sallie Mae To Add 2,000 US Jobs

Sallie Mae is the nation’s leading provider of student loans and administrator of college savings plans, has helped millions of Americans achieve their dream of a higher education. The company primarily provides federal and private student loans for undergraduate and graduate students and their parents.

From MSNBC.com:

Sallie Mae said Monday that it will bring 2,000 jobs to the U.S. within the next 18 months as it shifts call center and other operations from overseas.

Aside from call center positions, the nation’s largest private student lender will be looking for individuals to fill information technology and operations support roles.

Sallie Mae runs facilities in 20 U.S. locations including Lynn Haven, Fla.; Fishers, Ind.; Wilkes-Barre, Pa.; Killeen, Texas and Newark, Del.

Before you submit your resume at their site, run a Google search like this one:  “@salliemae.com”  SPHR.  (Be sure to include the quotes. Your search string should bring you to this page: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%22@salliemae.com%22++SPHR&btnG=Google+Search&aq=f&oq=) 

(You may be wondering, what is ‘SPHR’? Keep in mind that people LOVE to add initials after their names! In this case, SPHR is an acronym for the ‘Senior Professional in Human Resources’ certification. It’s a big deal in HR circles, so be sure to use it in future searches!)

This search will yield some HR contacts (i.e., real people!) that may be useful for submitting your resume DIRECTLY to an HR person.

If you’re feeling particularly randy, try adding the word recruiter to the search string and see what you get!

Let’s start avoiding job site resume submissions. Try the direct approach.

Let us know how it goes!
