FAQ for Employers

How much does it cost to post a job?

A single posts costs $70. Volume packages are available at a discount. Click on the Rates tab to view all options.

How long does a post stay active? Can I deactivate the post before it expires?

All posts stay active for 30 days. During those 30 days you may edit the post as often as you like.

You can deactivate live posts through “Manage Jobs” under Your Account pull-down menu. Click on the tiny word “Deactivate.” (Clicking on “Delete Post” will also deactivate it and save it in your account in the Inactive Jobs section.)

Can I browse resumes without posting a job?

Yes. Under the Rates page, click on the Résumé Search tab. You must call 888-491-8833 x 2455 to be approved for résumé browsing. Once you are approved, you may purchase your search package and see if there is a good match for your job opening.

Can I repost an expired/inactive job?

Yes, as long as you have a posting credit. Click on Manage Jobs from the pull-down menu under Your Account on the right side of the screen. Click Inactive Jobs. Select the job you wish to repost from that list, click on Copy, then repost, or edit and repost.

(If you don’t see the job you want to repost, make sure you select All Users’ Jobs from pull-down menu above the inactive jobs list.)

How many jobs can I post?

It depends on how many posting credits you purchase. You can choose anything from a single job post to a high volume package of 100 posts. All posting packages must be used within one year from the date of purchase.

Does each job title need its own posting?

Yes, each job title generally needs its own posting. NPO.net and its features are built around a single-job posting environment to assist employers to attract high-quality candidates focused fully on one specific job opportunity. Therefore, multiple job postings or general recruiting announcements are not permitted. An employer can, however, post two jobs in one post if the positions are basically identical in form and function except for employment status (e.g. fulltime vs. part time), length of employment (e.g. temporary vs. permanent) or credentialing (e.g. certified vs. uncertified).

How can I make my post look good?

  • Use the formatting tool above each text box, especially the bullet and number lists.
  • If you copy your ad from MS Word or another word processing application, make sure you select “Paste as text” in the Edit pull-down menu above each text box.
  • Hyperlink your website, email address, and application instructions that you enter into the body of the job description. Select the text you wish to link, then click the link icon in the formatting bar above each text box. If you select an email address and click the link icon, it will detect an email link.

Can I post a job under multiple categories?

Yes. You may choose up to three categories for each job post. Instructions are included on the job post form.

Can I post an anonymous ad?

Yes. In the “Display company as” block near the bottom of the job ad, click the box beside “Make this a confidential posting.”

Can multiple staff members use our employer account?

Yes, you may add as many staff members as you need as users in your account. The staff member can set up a user account using their email address.
