NOTE: Departments wishing to place ads in specific publications, other than those listed above, are responsible for the placement and cost of those ads. Such ads, however, must be reviewed and approved by Human Resources prior to publication.

General Advertising Information

Requests for placing advertisements must be received in Human Resources at least one week prior to the submission deadline of the publication. This will allow time to review the ad copy, ensure consistency with the vacancy notice, and obtain a cost estimate. Human Resources cannot guarantee placement of ads in a particular issue if the ad copy is not received in Human Resources at least one week prior to the submission deadline for that publication.

Cost

Individual departments are responsible for all costs incurred in the placing of their ads. Human Resources has established a standard purchase order for each of the above publications along with a separate account number for advertising costs. Once a month, Human Resources provides Business Services with a list of departments who have advertised and their account numbers. A charge back is then processed for the appropriate department.
