How much does it cost to post a job?
Each job ad costs $279 for a 30-day posting on our site.
Do you offer discounts if my company posts more than one job?
Yes, you can save up to 46% on your job postings by purchasing a job package. The smallest package we offer is a 3-pack of jobs. Refer to the pricing page for more information.
How do I pay for my job ad?
You can choose to pay online with a credit card, or you can select the "bill me later" option and we'll send you an invoice.
How does invoicing work?
If you're posting a single job, you'll need to make sure you're registered as an employer first. If your account isn't set up for invoicing yet, contact us with the email of your account and we'll set it up for you. Then you'll see a box at the bottom of Step 4/Billing where you can opt-in to be invoiced. You'll still have to enter credit card information for us to keep on file in case your company doesn't pay the bill, but as long as you check the box, we don't run the card when the job is posted.
I need a receipt for the job posting.
Receipt information is included at the bottom of confirmation emails. You can also access receipts for jobs at any time from your employer account. After logging in, click on Manage Your Jobs, and under the job title, select "Print Receipt". You can also email Rachel LaMariana with relevant job information (i.e. job title, when it was posted, name of company, who posted the ad).
REGISTERING / LOGGING IN
Is there a registration fee for employers?
No, registration is free. We only charge you $279 for the job posting.
I get an error message every time I try to log in.
Make sure you are logging in under the Employer Section, not the regular mediabistro.com member log in - these are separate log ins. If you forgot your employer user name and/or password, fill out your email address and we'll send you a password reminder.
My company already has a Mediabistro account, but I'd like resumes to go to a different email address. Is this possible?
Yes, you can receive resumes at any email address you'd like. When you are on Step 1, under Employer Contact Information, enter the email address where you'd like resumes to go -- it doesn't have to be the same as the email address you're logged in with.
Does my job posting go on the site immediately?
Yes, all postings are run on real-time.
What is Scoop Jobs?
Scoop Jobs is our matching service that connects you with both active and passive job candidates. Scoop Jobs is still in Beta testing, so right now it's free to add to your job posting when you're receiving resumes by email. After you answer a few questions in Step 2 about your job -- like the location, salary, and target occupation -- we'll email members who are a match. (Don't worry, all your information is kept confidential.) When they apply to your job, you'll receive a note about the match, and the candidate will show up at the top of the list in your employer account.
I need to make changes to my job posting.
After logging in, click on Manage Your Jobs and select "Edit" under the job title. Make your changes to the ad and click "Continue" past Step 4. You can edit your job any time that it's up.
I don't want applicants to contact me but I have to enter a contact name.
Instead of putting your name, you can put something generic in the first and last name fields such as "Human Resources", "Hiring Manager", or "Job Contact".
I've been inundated with resumes. How do I remove my posting from the site?
After logging in, click Manage Your Jobs. Then under the job title, select "disable". There's no way to pause a listing, so once you disable the ad, the only way for it to go back up on the site is to renew it.
I want my job to appear on top of the job board list.
Jobs are listed chronologically (most recent postings appear first). You can renew for your job for another month (for an additional $279) and it will appear on the top of the list.
If you select the FEATURED JOB add-on, your listing will refresh to the top of the job board every seven days. For an additional $147, this add-on also allows you to upload your company logo and highlight three selling points on our main job listings page.
I'm just not getting a great response to my job ad.
You can edit your job postings at any time based on the response you've received. For example, if the applicants are overqualified, you can specify your exact requirements in your ad. Always remember to be as specific as possible. Elaborate on your company, requirements, and what's expected of the candidate. If you have questions about how to improve your response or our satisfaction guarantee, call or email Rachel LaMariana for assistance.
Also, you can upgrade your job listing to a JOB OF THE DAY. For an additional $299, your ad will appear on the homepage, top of job listings page, and Daily Newsfeed (an emailed newsletter that gets sent to more than 160,000 subscribers) for an entire day.
