With the goal of further supporting our strategic recruitment efforts, the OACA HR team has made an investment in a LinkedIn account (along with O.I.T. and O.H.R.). From this investment, the Health Sciences and its strategic partners will greatly benefit in the form of reduced rates for sponsored advertising, as well as the ability to source both active and passive applicants.
The Health Sciences will have five dedicated advertising slots. A department is still able to directly advertise with LinkedIn, but using our account will offer a greatly reduced rate; at $75/week. We are anticipating that these slots will be in very high demand and will respond to requests on a first come first serve basis.
In addition to our account with LinkedIn we have invested in a membership with the MN Council of Non-Profits. The goal here is to primarily recruit for hard-to-fill positions while supporting the University's diversity goals and initiatives. Again, this membership allows us the greatly reduced cost per posting of $25; with no specified time limits on the duration of the sponsored advertising.
