Featured, Preferred, and Spotlight Upgrades

Posting on the Career Center guarantees that your ad will be displayed on the Career Center for all Job Seeker to view. Once you have completed the Job Posting Form, you will be taken to an optional Upgrade Screen.

On that screen you will find among the options, three direct exposure upgrades that will improve your visibility during the time your ad is posted.

Featured Upgrade:

This option will give you two different added pieces of exposure. 

  1. Your ad will be posted for a period of time on the Featured Jobs Section of the Associations Main page. This is included along with your posting being advertised on the Job Board as well. Your ad will appear in two different locations however please remember, the Featured Jobs Section only displays a certain amount of postings and your ad will only appear on that section for a temporary length of time, however, your ad on the Job Board remains for the full amount of time.

    Sample from SWE Career Center:

  2. Your ad will be included in the Job Flash (when applicable) meaning your ad will be sent out in an email blast to all registered Members of the Association. This allows for your ad to be more proactive and be placed right in front of those Members eyes via their email inbox. Those emails are sent out on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month and your ad would be included in one of those blasts based upon when it was posted. This additional feature only applies to sites that utilize the Job Flash Product.

Preferred Upgrade:

This option will keep your posting at the top of search results for the entire time it is posted. Normally without this option, if other postings are made after yours, then your listing would fall down in the search results, potentially landing on secondary pages rather than towards the top of the first page.

Choosing the Preferred Upgrade will keep you towards the top of search results and that allows a higher likelihood of being seen more often and by more Job Seekers since you are among the first of many pages of results.



Spotlight Upgrade:

This option focuses on your visual appearance on the board and ads a nice Spotlight Banner to your ad. The banner adds a visual aspect to the appearance on the board that grabs the eye and increases the likelihood your ad will be clicked on and viewed as an opportunity by qualified candidates.



All you have to do is select one more more of those Upgrades and advance to the payment page. Once you have activated your order either by Credit Card or Invoice (when applicable) those upgrades automatically attach to your posting and are effective the moment it hits the Career Center.
