CMT Job Insights on Credly

Our digital badging platform supports a member-focused job board, which can be accessed through the CMT Charter page on Credly. You can access job listings sorted by position title when you click on the “Demonstrated Skills” tags on the CMT Charter page; each skill will take you to a page of job listings associated with that skill.
The CMT Association provides access to the Credly Insights board as a service to our members. However, we are unable to post job opportunities directly to this board. If you are seeking to hire a CMT Charterholder, we encourage you to network within our local chapters. You can also reach out to the editor of our Technically Speaking newsletter to include a note about your opportunity in next month’s publication.
