Palmer’s Professional Opportunities website— ads.palmer.edu—is now easier than ever to use with a cleaner, updated look and more user-friendly features. It was first created in 2004 so that graduates could publicize job positions or apply for them, sell or buy a practice, and sell or purchase equipment— all in one place.

“The Palmer Center for Business Development is dedicated to assisting alumni in maximizing positive outcomes as it relates to both hiring an associate or independent contractor and to selling a practice,” said Career Center Coordinator Tom Minkalis of the Palmer Center for Business Development. “Improving the functionality of the website was vital to achieving this goal.”

One of the site’s newest features is a large search field that appears on every page. To use it, simply type what you’re looking for in the “Keywords” field and click on “Search.” You’ll be taken to a page of ads that contain your keyword or words.

For example, if you’d like to find an adjusting table from a local chiropractor, type your location in the “city” and “state” fields. To narrow down your search by manufacturer, click on the “Categories” arrow, select “Tables” from the drop-down menu and enter the manufacturer’s name in the “Keyword” box before clicking “Search.”

Of course, for every buyer there’s a seller. If you’re a first-time seller, you’ll need to register your e-mail address, which will appear in your ads. You’ll also need to choose a password. After verifying your e-mail address, you’re ready to log in. Ads cost $15 and run for 90 days.

“A doctor preparing for retirement may want to hire an associate with the intent of offering the option to purchase in a few years,” said Professional Opportunities Coordinator Marsha Hardacre. “In this case, listing the ad under two categories, ‘Associateship’ and ‘Practice for Sale,’ may be appropriate.”

Future plans for ads.palmer.edu include a video that offers tips and techniques for posting and searching for ads, and online access to Business Center staff and resources.
