Where to advertise must be seriously considered by the Search Committee. The purpose of advertising is to “cast a broad net” which results in highly-qualified applicants. This purpose should be achieved through a cost-effective mix of advertising sources, and information which catches the eye and interest of potential employees. Keep in mind that the ad sends a message to applicants about what it’s like to work at NMU, and that there’s only one chance to make a good first impression!
Once ad language is prepared and finalized, Academic Affairs and the department will prepare to advertise the position. The Provost’s office automatically advertises in the following:
ALL ads for academic vacancies must reflect the following: NMU is an equal opportunity employer and is strongly committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty.
Once ad language is prepared and finalized, Human Resources and the department will prepare to advertise the position. Human Resources automatically advertises in the following:
All ads for non-academic vacancies must reflect the following: Northern Michigan University is an equal opportunity institution/equal opportunity employer (for full ad); NMU is an EOE (for template)
