IAEWS Employment Web-Site Resource Directory

If your organization is selling a product or service to job boards and other employment sites, the IAEWS Employment Web-Site Resource Directory is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to promote it.

What makes the Directory special? It connects with your prospective customers in not one, but two ways:

  • First, the Directory will be linked from the Home Page of the IAEWS Web-site so it’s front and center with both IAEWS Members and other site visitors
  • Second, a hard copy version of the Directory will be distributed to delegates at all IAEWS Congresses.

In short, you get a two-fer: both virtual and real world visibility.

In addition, the Directory will be featured in regular e-blasts to the IAEWS membership and to the employment sites on the mailing list maintained by WEDDLE’s Guide.

The Employment Web-Site Resource Directory will go live in early January 2014, so don’t delay. The closing date for insertion orders is just around the corner. For additional information and to place your insertion order, contact the IAEWS at director@employmentwebsites.org today.
