“Clip” Coupons and Get Job Postings At A Discount

With the use of cents-off coupons soaring it’s probably no surprise that someone would think to offer them for job postings. But for its sheer size alone, the Job Board Savings Book is an audacious effort.

It offers discounts ranging from 5 to 50 percent on the price of a job posting for over 1,000 niche, diversity, and regional job boards. Most of the boards are part of the JobTarget (profile; site) network, which is to be expected since the coupon book was produced by JobTarget and the Society for Human Resource Management. The two have been partnering on a job posting service since 2007. The majority of coupons are redeemable there.

Included in the coupon book are such national job boards as Monster, offering a 5 percent discount, and Jobster, Net-Temps, and SnagaJob. There are also hundreds of job boards offered by professional organizations, as well as several dozen regional boards powered by JobTarget.

Anyone can use the coupons to get the discount. Simply choose the job boards you want, then look up the discount codes and enter them at the SHRM job posting site when you place your order. Besides downloading the book, which will be updated periodically during 2009, printed copies will be inserted in the January issue of SHRM’s HR Magazine and the Winter issue of SHRM’s Staffing Management magazine.
