Client Testimonials
...We place both online and print recruitment ads. Although online is the most common media for such opportunities there is a large audience that still have printed Chronicle subscriptions that line the waiting rooms of countless higher education institutions. We believe in the value of showcasing our print opportunities because we know they will be seen, and we want to be included in those page(s) for greater visibility. In our application we ask our applicants to let us know how they heard of our recruitment opportunities and The Chronicle accounts for a great percentage of the responses which is among the top 5 of responses for this question. Given that information, we consider the posting of our recruitment opportunities in The Chronicle valuable.
A. Casiano-Zoko, Director of Academic Administration, DePaul University
We know that the Chronicle jobs website and printed ads are trusted sources for those searching for career opportunities in higher education. Therefore, it is a go-to source for reliable advertising and recruitment...The Chronicle provides us with multiple ways to amplify our advertisements. In addition to the print ad, the Chronicle provides a longer online run than most. And during that time, our jobs are amplified in several ways (as a sponsored job and top job) and included in additional Chronicle outreach, such as Academe Today and Your Career...
