Here are some tips to get the most out of your search for an ideal candidate:
We're here to help. Please email us or call us! npoHelp@lumity.org or 312.372.4872.
Simply send to firstname.lastname@example.org the name of your organization, your name, and the email address where we can send a response, and we will send you your Login Username (login ID). We do not keep a record of passwords, but if you have forgotten yours, we can reset it for you.
No--that's the only thing about your account that cannot be changed. If you need to change yours for any reason, you will need to set up a new account. If you need to have any posting or subscription credits transferred, please contact Lumity and we'll work with you to make the change.
Lumity's mission, as a nonprofit ourselves, is to help other nonprofits be as successful as possible, and we believe that having great staff is the most important step.
Click on the Rates tab.
Or, if you are logged into your account, click on the Posts tab. From there you can select "Post a Premium Job," "Posting Subscription," or "Posting Credits" to view prices or each posting package. Pricing is subject to change at any time, although we will give you at least a month's notice before changing our rates.
Lumity keeps pricing on NPO.net very low so it's affordable for all budget sizes to post with us. The type of posting package you order depends on how many jobs you will need to post and when. Posting packages are great if you have an occasional opening to post. The posting credits do not expire until you use them. Or, if you have several openings each month, it would be more economical for you to purchase a 12-month subscription, which allows you to post up to 10 job openings per month during your 12-month subscription period.
If you have a hard time deciding, just ask us and we'll help answer any questions you might have.
It depends which posting package you purchase. You can choose anything from a single job post to a subscription that allows up to 10 posts each month throughout the subscription period.
All posts stay active for 30 days. You may edit and repost the position as long as you do it within 30 days of the date you first posted the job. When posts expire you will receive a courtesy email letting you know.
NPO.net makes it easy to format your job ad so it looks good and is easily readable by job seekers. Follow these steps to making your ad attractive:
We help employers fill nonprofit jobs in Texas, Illinois and other states. Whether you are looking for a Texas nonprofit job board, an Illinois nonprofit job board, or a nonprofit job board for another state, you can find great nonprofit employees by using NPO.net.
Virtually all categories are created specifically to allow for a single choice. This is done for clarity and does not limit the ability of searches conducted by job seekers.
All categories require a single choice unless specifically indicated as "multiple selection." Searching is not impeded because users can always select multiple categories or choose the default "select all." Therefore, job seekers are able to appropriately include your post in their search criteria. For example, you must choose the geographic area where the job will be filled. A job seeker can search for jobs in the areas to which they are able to commute comfortably.
Some jobs have multiple roles that may be difficult to prioritize. You may be concerned that if you choose the wrong category that some job seekers may not find your posting. If this is a problem, read the next section.
Some jobs just defy being categorized. This often happens in small organizations where people have to wear many hats. Lumity recommends that you generally pick the category descriptor that is closest to your need or represents the majority of the job skills or activities you are seeking.
However, in some rare cases you may want to examine several different types of candidates to evaluate what might work best for your agency. To reach the right job seekers, you may post the same general job description in two to three ways to target what you think the ideal candidate might look for in a job. This allows you to attract different types of candidates that may not be possible with just a single post. Because NPO.net subscriptions allow you to post multiple jobs within the time limits of your subscription, it is acceptable to post two to three job descriptions that are targeting a single position in your agency.
Yes. However, because the system maintains a link between the posting account and the post that can be seen publicly, we ask that you call Lumity and work with us to set up a special account for you. It won't cost you anything extra.
That's up to you. NPO.net provides a single login ID and password for each agency. You may choose to share these with other staff members so they can post jobs if necessary.
