A quick update for Inside Higher Ed recruiters -- news, notes and a friendly welcome to new friends.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Smart recruiting can involve a lot of data entry — posting jobs on Web site after Web site is time consuming and inefficient. Did you know that you can post jobs to Inside Higher Ed without a single keystroke?

Automating your job postings requires 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 (we 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.

Get the skinny on our API service by clicking here or contact your account manager for more information.

You've paid for an unlimited posting plan - don't let time limit the benefit you derive from it!
