HOME PAGE FEATURED JOBS SECTION?
$20 more per ad, we will also add your announcement to the Featured Job
Opportunities list on the home page of GovtJob.Net. This is a great way to
maximize exposure to your job ad, especially when you have a short recruitment
period or a position that is hard to fill. To take advantage of this option,
just mention in the transmittal of your ad copy that you also want the job

Page to view this feature.
IF WE ALREADY HAVE OUR OWN JOB SITE ON THE WEB, WHY SHOULD WE ADVERTISE ON
There are more than 60,000 local government jurisdictions in the United States.
Job seekers cannot possibly, nor do they want to, search each individual
jurisdiction for job listings. The Local Government Job Net gives employees an
easy, accessible, one stop job search website. Moreover, the Local Government
Job Net is listed with more than 1000 search engines and dozens of directories,
etc. Plus, we have established links to our site from many local government
related web sites. In addition, our Job Net information is posted on thousands
of city hall and county court house employee bulletin boards across the country.
Our Job Net is averaging 13,000 to 17,000 "hits" (total files downloaded) per
day with traffic continuing to steadily climb. During the course of a normal
run, your job announcement will be downloaded by 4,000 to 6,000 job seekers,
most of whom will be career local government professionals. The Local
Government Job Net is where local government job seekers employees are now
turning for online listings of employment opportunities in local government.
According to our statistics, our site is fairly evenly accessed among all U.S.
time zones, with slightly more hits from the west.
LGI's Job Net rates are very reasonable, and just a fraction of the cost of a
one day ad in the Sunday edition of a major daily newspaper.
As an added benefit at no additional cost, we will add a link from within your
ad to your existing web site, if you have one. This is another easy and
cost-effective way to increase the traffic to your local web site. Yes, even if
you have your own job site, we will link to it from any single ad you place with
us. This is a great way to leverage your advertising dollars and increase access
to your other employment announcements.
WHY SHOULD I ADVERTISE WITH THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT JOB NET, WHEN THERE ARE
OTHER LOW COST OR NO COST JOB LISTING SITES?
GovtJob.Net gets more hits and has more job posting than any
other local government related job site. Your announcement will be noticed! The
goal of your recruitment efforts is to develop an applicant pool comprised of an
adequate number of well qualified job applicants. You cannot do that if your job
listings are rarely accessed or seen. When an agency posts a listing with a free
on- line service such as your state employment agency, etc., your local
government position gets "lost" among hundreds or thousands of other
private and other sector job listings. Have you ever actually searched the other
sites for local government listings? We do regularly, and the local government
listings are virtually nonexistent. However, the govtjob.net has between 200 and
listings at any given time. Applicants, especially local government career
professionals, can get discouraged having to "hunt and Peck" through
hundreds of job listings to find a single advertised government position
in their field. Not so with govtjob.net Our listings are easy to access.
Another point to consider is the potential problem of being inundated with
applications from marginally or unqualified persons. This often happens when
advertising in a major newspaper. This rarely happens with govtjob.net . Our site caters to career
state and local government professionals.
Govtjob.net is limited to positions in state and local government. Our
Job Net information is posted on thousands of city hall and county court house
employee bulletin boards across the country. We regularly advertise in local
government publications such as ICMA PM magazine and J.O.B.S. Newsletter, IPMA
Newsletter, APWA Reporter, Governing, American City and County, NLC Nations Cities Weekly,
NACO, Law and
Order, Better Roads, etc. In addition, govtjob.net is listed
with over 1000 search engines and directories, etc. Plus, we have
established links to our site from most local government related web sites.
Thousands of well qualified local government employees search our Job Net
website on a weekly basis.
WE'RE NOT ONLINE YET. WHY SHOULD ADVERTISE ON THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT JOB NET?
95% of all organizations of any significance are now advertising their job announcements via the Internet. You can still advertise your job vacancies online, even if your
agency does not post it opening
online yourself. If you are still advertising only through printed classified
advertising, you're wasting a lot of money and missing out on the high impact
low cost recruitment that govtjob.net. When you
consider that a 1-time Sunday ad of 150 words in your major daily newspaper can
cost more than $400.00 compared to a $39.00 five hundred word 45 day govtjob.net ad that is
seen by thousands of career local government employees, then you begin to
see the advantages of govtjob.net.
HOW MUCH TRAFFIC DOES GOVTJOB.NET GENERATE?
Our Job Net is averaging 14,000 to 17,000 "hits"

During the course of a normal run, your job announcement will be downloaded by
4,000 to 6,000 job seekers, most of whom will be career local government
professionals. You can view recent website activity
