Centralized Advertising for Employment

The placement of employment ads in the Mankato Free Press, The Star Tribune and The Chronicle of Philanthropy is centralized in Human Resources in an effort to receive a discounted rate.

After the appropriate Dean/Vice President and the HR Search Coordinator have approved the search process, establish what publications you need to advertise in, based on the guidelines for the particular position.

All advertising requests for the following publications must be submitted on line using the link below.

Submit Advertising Requests

General Advertising Information

Requests for placing advertisements must be received in Human Resources at least one week prior to the submission deadline of the publication. This will allow time to review the ad copy, ensure consistency with the vacancy notice, and obtain a cost estimate. Human Resources cannot guarantee placement of ads in a particular issue if the ad copy is not received in Human Resources at least one week prior to the submission deadline for that publication.

Cost

Individual departments are responsible for all costs incurred in the placing of their ads. Human Resources has established a standard purchase order for each of the above publications along with a separate account number for advertising costs. Once a month, Human Resources provides Business Services with a list of departments who have advertised and their account numbers. A charge back is then processed for the appropriate department.
