[su_spoiler title=”Post Job Openings” style=”fancy”]
Post a job or volunteer opportunity on the job board
Tips for posting a job:
- In the “Location” field, put a street address, so the person viewing the job can click on it and see a map.
- If you are having trouble attaching an image, email it to email@example.com, and Tracie will add the image. That seems to be a glitch in the program for now.
- Once you submit, it will first go to the web admin for approval, so you won’t see it immediately.
You can also post a job in the classified section of the Episcopal Digital Network site:
