  • 1.  Posting jobs on Connect policy

    Posted Jun 23, 2022 05:46 PM
    Hi again,
    Simple question
    I am reading the documents on
    And I read in #15.1  "Restrict job postings to a singular opt-in community on the ALA Connect platform​"  does this mean we can't post on jobs on the Connect thread that target the type of library worker we need?  If so, I wish to push back on that decision.  Posting only once makes sense since we want everyone to use the Placement Center.  Awareness in the "right" community benefits all members: the seeker and the employer.

    To me, posts with links to ALA JobList position announcements should still be fine.
    I don't find the EBD Doc where this was recommended?
