Job Announcement Email Blasts

We are happy to promote your Monmouth County / immediate surrounding area open positions to our database of over 29,000+ customers. The announcement goes directly to our candidate’s email box, not a job board. It goes right to an email account—one and done. So, it is not up anywhere to “view it”. I copy and paste what you send to me, so it looks exactly like that (minus the FEIN#).

**To make your ad attractive to the eye of the reader, you might want to consider changing up your ad a bit to tell a reader why they should consider working for your organization.

Please keep in mind: People read things with LITTLE words and LOTS of PICTURES—and incentives to work—you must tell them “What is in it for me (Them)” to apply. This method is hoping to grab their attention.

Information needed MUST be written out in an email or word document, and includes:

  • Your first and last name
  • Name of Company
  • FEIN # (I MUST have this information, and it will remain confidential)
  • How to apply (an Email address is FAR better than a job board URL address)
  • Name of job open
  • Summary of details (FT/PT, hours, requirements, location, etc.)
  • All jobs open for you, for the entire month, should be on 1 document.
  • IF you choose to use colorin your announcement, it is IN ADDITION to the TEXT you provide, and limited to 1 page for everything, and must be in JPG or PNG format. No other format can be used.
  • NO LINKS are ever active in any of your announcements.

Please send all job announcements listing the above information to: christine.dykeman@dol.nj.gov
