What is the difference between a display ad and a line ad? Accordion Closed
A display ad has the Northern Arizona University logo displayed at the top and it is placed with a border around the ad.
A line ad can run with or without the Northern Arizona University logo, but it runs with other line ads and does not have a border around the ad.
What kind of information is contained in the ad? Accordion Closed
Most ads contain:
- the Northern Arizona University logo (required for display ads)
- a job title and vacancy number
- a job description
- a list of minimum qualifications
- an annual salary
- an application deadline
- a Northern Arizona University EE/OC Statement (required)
Most of these elements are optional and can be excluded based on the needs of the recruiting department. To reduce advertising costs the title, vacancy number, short description, and reference to the Human Resources website posting may be sufficient. To ensure potential applicants understand the job responsibilities and are qualified for the position before they apply more information should be included.
How does an ad usually run in the AZ Daily Sun? Accordion Closed
Ads run in the Daily Sun are run together in the General Employment Classifieds. All ads are run in a single display ad with the Northern Arizona University logo at the top. The newspaper runs every Wednesday and Sunday, with a typical deadline of 2 days prior.
How will my department be billed for the advertising? Accordion Closed
The cost of the ads will be charged to the Speedchart account that the department provides on the advertising request form. Departments will be charged for the ads in an IST.
