Sponsored Job Ads now on INALJ

Sponsored Job Ads now on INALJ

INALJ will always offer free job ads to anyone wishing to share an LIS related job, but now we will offer Sponsored ads as well!  Why?

  • demand for quick turnaround time from HR professionals
  • who want to advertise with us but don’t want to wait 4 business days for volunteers to get the ad on
  • and sponsored because this type of time and attention requires paid compensation
  • our time is valuable and we need revenue streams
  • while continuing to offer the free service

You can find ALL the details on how to get your ad online and how much it costs at the top of every INALJ page under POST a JOB.

I was inspired by feedback from several HR professionals who noticed their jobs never got placed. One of the greatest challenges with running an all volunteer jobs site is follow through. 99% of INALJ’s volunteers are stellar and their time and efforts are so incredible and have helped so many that expectations for INALJ are high. The 1% who drop the ball end up costing job hunters potential jobs and frustrate admins who ask to have their jobs placed on our site. They take time and effort to investigate as well  Other options, for example, I used to use forms I no longer use after spam bot attacks and a pharma hack.

For these reasons I will be handling all sponsored job ads and checking jobs@inalj.com four times a day.  Right now we accept credit card payments through PayPal but if need be write the same email account to ask about institutional checks.  All sponsored ads will receive an invoice and personal attention, which we cannot offer to unpaid ads.

INALJ has had over 20.5 Million page hits and helped many, many thousands of librarians find employment!
