Please note that effective March 15, 2002, CSI asks organizations with budgets above US$100,000/year that are advertising a salaried position, to pay a small fee for job announcements that we post. We hope these fees will not be burdensome to those of you accustomed to sending job announcements to CSI; they are designed to help us continue producing CivilSoc and our website at the lowest possible cost. We will continue to post announcements of internships, volunteer opportunities, as well as upcoming events, organizational developments, etc., free of charge.
Before posting a notice of job openings or internship opportunities to CivilSoc, the e-bulletin of Civil Society International, please review the Guidelines below and then send your announcement directly to email@example.com. If you want your notice also to appear on this web page, CSI's Jobs and Internships (see above), send a message to this effect to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (206) 523-4755.
Guidelines for Posting Job or Internship Announcements to
* Please keep announcements concise: 500-750 words, or about 5-7 kilobytes, maximum. If you submit longer material, we will probably shorten it. Putting a link in your announcement to a longer version at a website is one way to keep postings short.
* No attachments. Send your message as a simple text file, and NOT as an attachment. Attachments can carry viruses; tend to be big; and sometimes require software that not all list members have.
* Descriptive subject line. Use the Subject line of your announcement to summarize its contents as accurately as possible. This makes it more likely that your message will be read by those you want to reach; it also saves other list members the time required to open and read e-mail of no concern to them. Just four or five well-chosen words can often communicate a great deal. Do not put phrases such as "Please post immediately" in the Subject line. Also, please do not write your Subject line all in capitals, LIKE THIS. Make normal use of upper and lower case letters, Like This.
* Do not include extraneous material, such as "Best wishes for the New Year to CSI," in announcements posted directly to email@example.com. Messages sent to firstname.lastname@example.org are meant to be reviewed quickly by the moderator and approved for distribution, as is, to members of the CivilSoc list. Use the e-mail address, email@example.com, for any administrative communications, questions, or comments directed to CSI.
If this is your first time using CSI's job announcement service, and a fee is required, please indicate your billing information, including a telephone number and e-mail address, in a message to firstname.lastname@example.org. If this information changes for you, please remember to keep us updated.
The fee structure is as follows:
|STANDARD RATE||NONPROFIT RATE||NONPROFIT PREFERRED*|
* The NONPROFIT PREFERRED rate is for nonprofits that submitted 6 or more postings in a calendar year.
