Advertising Options

Advertising job openings allows KU departments to attract the most qualified talent from local, regional, and national markets.

When deciding how and where to advertise open positions, please keep the following points in mind:

  • Create an advertising and outreach plan to ensure that a diverse, qualified applicant pool will be available and meets your unit goals.
  • Unclassified and academic staff positions should appear in at least one print or online ad unless the department identifies more appropriate recruiting resources.
  • Faculty positions must appear in at least one print or online journal publication with a national distribution.  Please work with your HRM Senior Recruiter to discuss available options or to learn about joint faculty advertisements for cost savings.
  • Units are encouraged to use advertising resources that target their specific discipline area and diversity outlets outside of the standard advertising publications supported by the University.
  • Contact your SSC HR Coordinator or HRM Senior Recruiter to learn about JobElephant, a service that can provide data metrics (views & clicks) and job-specific recommendations for online advertising locations, helping departments better use their budgets while attracting qualified candidates. There is no additional cost for utilizing JobElephant.
