Tips for Posting

Use these inputting tips to ensure speedy and accurate posting.

    • Log into the ContactPoint website.
    • Go to the Job Board and select, “Add a New Job Posting”, a link that only appears to users who are registered with and logged into the site.

In the form that appears, please complete the following…

  • Title: the name of the position
  • Category: Select “– Current Job Posting” from the drop-down menu (Under “Job Postings”)
  • At “Publish”, select the “yes” button. This will alert ContactPoint staff that your posting is ready to be reviewed and made live on the site.
  • You may wish to insert tags (keywords for search engine optimization) into the space allotted, but this is not essential.
  • When adding text to the content boxes (organization description, duties/responsibilities, requirements/qualifications), please limit formatting (no tables, use only one font and one font size, etc.).
  • Be sure to include a brief description of your organization in the spaceallotted after you input your organization name.
  • Schedule: Is the position full-time, part-time, temporary or permanent? This information appears both in the individual posting and the main job board listing.
  • Region: Where is the position geographical situated? Sometimes this is the same as the “City”.
  • Be sure to provide a deadline for applications. Click on the calendar icon to the right of the text box and select the date. The deadline appears both in the individual posting and the main job board listing. Postings that are submitted without a deadline will automatically be given a three week deadline and moved to the “recent postings” section after that date.


Remember, your posting will not be immediately available online. ContactPoint staff must approve all job postings before they are made public.
