Like any job board, Inside Higher Ed posts your job announcement to our jobs database. But unlike any other job board we make it work a lot harder to reach your best candidates. First, when searching our database, candidates return not just a job title and institution name, but the introduction to your ad text. Second, we display appropriately related jobs with our editorial content. This means that someone reading a story about an innovative new idea in admissions will be presented with admissions jobs (a significant portion of the traffic to our job postings comes via these links – meaning we’re delivering the passive candidates you most want to reach). Finally, for an small additional fee we offer a featured link in our Daily News Update subscriber e-mail to really boost attention.
Inside Higher Ed partners with Indeed.com and Simply Hired (the job engine that powers searches on LinkedIn) to extend the reach of your job postings. Jobs posted to Inside Higher Ed are automatically posted to our partner sites -- and updates and expirations are automatic as well.
A lot of recruiting sites offer services that purport to help you reach diverse candidates. Unfortunately, these services are generally well-named, but woefully ineffective. At Inside Higher Ed, we take a different approach – by publishing an inclusive, compelling professional journal and offering it free online, we have gathered the most diverse readership of any higher education publication. Our unique advantages for diversity recruiting include: Free content - Higher education is most diverse among budget conscious younger academics and institutions such as community colleges. Our free content model means everyone in higher education is part of our audience. Inclusive coverage - When diverse readers and people at diverse institutions come to our site, they find themselves and their institutions and issues covered. Help for academic couples - Our Dual Career search quickly identifies jobs for both partners and spotlights them by location. In seconds, academic couples can find proximate jobs – and that can be the key to your institution landing a great diversity hire. Reach to passive candidates – Inside Higher Ed lets you broaden your search to include the qualified diversity candidates who aren’t on the job market, but might be intrigued by an exciting new opportunity. From featured jobs in our daily news update e-mail to jobs displayed with appropriate editorial content to display advertising throughout the Web site, Inside Higher Ed connects you with great diversity candidates whether they search our jobs database or not. NEW -- Add a Diversity Profile to your Featured Employer page. Your Diversity Profile is linked to every job you post on Inside Higher Ed. An eye-catching logo alerts job seekers that your institution has provided in-depth information for diversity candidates.
Why yes! Here's what the Department of Labor has to say: Yes, an employer may use an electronic or web-based national professional journal to satisfy the regulatory provision at 20 CFR § 656.18(b)(3), which requires use of a national professional journal for advertisements for college or university teachers. The advertisement for the job opportunity for which certification is sought must be posted for at least 30 calendar days on the journal's website. Documentation of the placement of an advertisement in an electronic or web-based national professional journal must include evidence of the start and end dates of the advertisement placement and the text of the advertisement. In fact, the successful challenge to the old print advertising rule by the University of Texas at Brownsville was over the right to be certified for foreign hiring on the basis of an ad on Inside Higher Ed.

More than 1,700 institutions have posted jobs with Inside Higher Ed, and more than 500 hold unlimited contracts to post all their jobs all year long.

You can pay by credit card at the time you post. When you purchase a package of prepaid postings you can pay by credit card or choose to be invoiced.
Inside Higher Ed e-mails PDF invoices within a day or two of approving your purchase. If invoices should go to a different e-mail address than the one on your account, you'll be able to fill in the appropriate e-mail during the purchasing process. Invoices can be paid by check or credit card - instructions will be included. If you have questions about your invoice, or need another copy, please contact our Senior Accountant Raisa Andrzheychik at email@example.com or +1-202-448-6123.
Once you’ve posted a job, you’ll have an Inside Higher Ed recruiter account (we use your e-mail address as your username and a password of your choosing). Log in at careers.insidehighered.com – you’ll see a link to “manage posts” in the right side of the screen. From this screen you can edit or delete job posts.
A Premium Posting is a job posting with a whole lot of extra oomph. For just $150 more we position your posting at the top of all search results pages, highlighted in color so it really stands out. We also include a link to your posting in one day’s edition of our Daily News Update e-mail – read by more than 97,000 opt-in subscribers each morning. Talk about extra exposure!
Spotlight advertising is the best way to reach passive candidates reading Inside Higher Ed. For an additional $995 added to any job posting, we’ll create a 300x250 banner ad to run in a prominent position on the Inside Higher Ed home page, as well as on the jobs pages themselves. (Click here for more information about how banner advertising works.) Both banner ads are linked to a full page, full-color stand-alone web page for your job announcement (designed at no cost by our staff and approved by you). When users click on either the banner ad, or the link to your posting in search results or job alert e-mails, they’re directed to this eye-catching web page rather than a standard text listing. We’ll even include a link to your job in one day’s edition of our popular Daily News Update subscriber e-mail – currently reaching more than 97,000 opt-in subscribers. Spotlight Ads on Inside Higher Ed are the single most effective way to reach a wide audience of higher ed professionals – whether they’re on the job market or not.

We sure do. In addition to a 5-posting credit package and 10-posting credit package (both of which must be used within 90 days of purchase), we offer unlimited job posting packages for 3, 6 or 12 months at real savings. Your cost will depend on the size of your school, with basic posting packages running from $1,785 per year to $8,800 per year. You can also bundle other recruiting products with job postings for even greater impact and cost savings. And we offer group sales on packages as well. Give your account manager a call for more information (see below for account manager territories).
Inside Higher Ed recognizes that smart recruiting can involve a lot of data entry - posting jobs on website after website is time consuming and inefficient. Now Inside Higher Ed offers a solution – a direct feed from your jobs database to ours that eliminates the need for a single keystroke to post jobs. Automated job postings require a bit of technical work on your end to get things started, but once in place there’s no work at all involved in posting jobs. Inside Higher Ed has built a SOAP-compliant API that can interact directly with your jobs database (I know, pretty geeky, but the folks who can help you make this happen will know just what it means). With a bit of assistance from your IT department, it’s a simple matter to set up a daily feed of all your job postings, or to allow users to tag individual jobs posted to your web site for automatic cross-posting to Inside Higher Ed. Inside Higher Ed is running successful API integrations via PeopleAdmin, Interview Exchange, SilkRoad and other ATS providers. We also work with JobTarget and Jobelephant to automate postings for institutions that don’t have the capability to create an API feed on their own. See our API specification here or get in touch with Kathlene Collins, Publisher of Inside Higher Ed, at +1-202-448-6129 or firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy of the API specifications or to learn more.
Absolutely. For each ad posted, Inside Higher Ed reports on the number of views your ad received, the number of times the "apply now" link was clicked, as well as the number of times the ad was saved, printed or e-mailed. A report on all activity for each account is automatically sent at the end of each month to the person who posted the job.
Registered recruiters at Inside Higher Ed can search our resume bank at no charge. Simply log in at careers.insidehighered.com and click the link on your dashboard for “browse resumes.”
A Featured Employer profile is your own recruitment page within the Inside Higher Ed site. Using our simple template you can put key information and multiple links to your own website – organized for the specific needs of job candidates – on a single page that’s linked to all your job postings. Your institution's logo and a link to your profile will be included in our Featured Employer directory, and we highlight featured employers throughout the jobs portion of the website for added exposure. Featured Employer profiles are priced at $1,000 per year. That’s less than $20 a week for a recruitment site that works for you 365 days a year. Or purchase an unlimited job posting package and the profile is included in the cost. Give your account manager a call for more information (see below for account manager territories). NEW -- Add a Diversity Profile to your Featured Employer page. Your Diversity Profile is linked to every job you post on Inside Higher Ed. An eye-catching logo alerts job seekers that your institution has provided in-depth information for diversity candidates.
