We'd love to hear what you think of our revamped recruitment site! Send feedback, suggestions or (kindly worded) critiques to  And as always, if you need assistance with anything, give us a call at 202-659-9208 or drop us a line at


A quick tip - to make your ads more compelling (and get better click through rates), Inside Higher Ed allows you to include an introduction with each job listing (300 characters or less). Here’s an example of an eye-catching introduction from Daytona Beach College:

“Located on the beautiful east coast of Florida. Daytona Beach College offers competitive compensation, along with great benefits and on-campus amenities. Come enjoy beachside living, no state income tax, and year-round sunshine!”

A great introduction will grab the attention of our readers (nearly a million each month) who may only read the first few lines of your ad unless you "make the sale" from the start. Talk to your account manager for ideas on effectively using your introduction to improve your outcomes.

Battle Over Birth Control -- Contraception provisions in the federal health care law are at the center of a dispute between religious colleges and the Obama administration.

And just a reminder that the U.S. Department of Labor now says that online advertisements in professional publications (specifically including Inside Higher Ed) can be used by colleges and universities as part of the process of obtaining federal approval to offer positions to foreign academics.
