UW Bothell offers free job posting service

   Employers seeking college seniors and recent graduates for full-time employment opportunities can reach tens of thousands of qualified candidates from virtually every four-year college and university in the state, for free.

   The University of Washington Bothell has created JobPost, a new e-mail-based job listing distribution system. Any employer who has e-mail can use JobPost.

   Job listings should be sent to: jobpost@u.washington.edu. The listing will automatically be distributed to all participating colleges and universities (Central; Eastern; Evergreen; Gonzaga; Seattle University; UPS; UW Bothell; UW Tacoma; WSU; Western; Whitman; and Whitworth).

   Internship opportunities for undergraduates may be posted to InternPost, internpost@u.washington.edu. Staff at each school will then post the job or internship listings to their students and alumni.

   Job listings should be included in the e-mail message, not sent as attachments. In the "Subject" section, type Position Title - Your Company Name. If you wish to post multiple job openings in the same message, the "Subject" section should read Multiple Openings - Your Company Name.

   Job listings sent to JobPost will be sent statewide to thousands of qualified applicants within 24 hours.

   For more information, contact Kerri Everly, Career Services program assistant, University of Washington Bothell, at 425-352-5237, or e-mail to career@u.washington.edu.
