Guidelines for Placing Ads
All CSI position announcements are placed on the CSI Employment Opportunities Web site as well as with the Idaho Department of Labor (unless they are internal only). Beyond these two requirements, hiring authorities may decide the extent to which they wish to advertise a position off campus.
Newspapers are often the next level of advertising that hiring authorities seek. The ATS administrator will create and place all ads for you. The Times-News will run a Sunday/Wednesday (highest reader days) and online ad with Monster for one week with CSI logo. Newspaper ads are minimal and point to the CSI Web site for details.
A Sunday ad in the Idaho Statesman in Boise will include a one week online listing with Career Builder that can be updated to include as much information as the CSI Web site. All applications must still be received through the CSI site, however. A three-day ad starting on a Sunday in the Pocatello Idaho Journal also places an ad online with the newspaper and with Career Builder, and is appropriate for professional level openings.
If you know of an area outside the region you wish to impact with an ad, the ATS administrator will secure information about deadlines and costs prior to placement. It is important to learn if those papers also place ads with services such as Career Builder or Yahoo! Hotjobs so we avoid duplication.
Journals & Other Web Sites
Professional journals and fairs are another good source for applicants as long as the ads are timely. Hard copy ads can take a long time to appear in print, whereas online ads can be placed the same day they are received. Many services are for a 30-day minimum, which needs to be factored into the timeframe for accepting applications. The ATS administrator will help you to create your ad and ask that you or one of your team with a membership place the order to get the membership rate.
The ATS Administrator has lists of addresses for area medical facilities, school district offices and other local entities. Please feel free to ask about these.
The College has had great success with instructional positions placed with HigherEdJobs.com in recent years. These ads are timely and reach a large audience. HigherEdJobs sends weekly reports of hits on our positions. With all ads placed outside the region we make certain to clearly include the salary and that we are a community college. That information is repeated when applicants register with the ATS.
Some department chairs prefer to use the Chronicle of Higher Ed. The Chronicle has an online presence specific to community colleges so that potential applicants know to what kind of college they are applying.
Costs for Advertising
All costs for advertising are incurred by the hiring department. Invoices will be forwarded for authorization as they are received. Companies that require payment up front will be paid with the HR office's purchase card and charged back to the hiring department.
The college subscribes to the policy of proving equal educational and employment opportunities, services, and benefits to students and employees without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, or disability in accordance with the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as amended, Title IX of the Educational Amendment of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
