Where to Place an Ad

When placing an ad for a position, every effort should be made to see that all advertisements reach a diverse population.

It is important that jobs are posted appropriately.  Hourly and biweekly positions should be advertised locally.  Administrative positions generally require a regional or national search; and faculty positions (two-year term and above) generally require a national search.

Listed below are some suggestions on places to advertise. This list is neither exclusive nor exhaustive.  The best place to advertise may be publications unique to the particular specialty or field.  If you have questions on where a position should be advertised, please contact the Equal Opportunity Office at 227-2420.
