Q:  Your guidelines state that there are no costs for the first 20 postings for 30 days. Are they deleted after that time automatically or do we have to deactivate them after 30 days? There are also fees mentioned to set up an account for the free postings. Can you please tell me how much this fee will be or if there is a opportunity to post completely for free?

A: All of our accounts have a 30 day duration. At the end of the 30 days you will receive an email notifying you that the account is about to expire and asking you if you would like to renew the account for another 30 days. If you have chosen a posting package that has a cost associated, then you will be prompted to pay for the new account subscription. If you are renewing a Free account, it remains free - no matter how many times you renew it. If you choose not to renew your posting package, then your Company Profile and Job Postings become Inactive and will not display to job seekers. Our Terms and Conditions are inclusive of all of our Posting Packages, so the reference to "fees" only applies to the posting packages that have a cost associated with them.

 

Q: How do I renew my job posting after it has expired?

A: An email notification is automatically sent when your account officially expires on InternJobs.com. Please click on the renewal link in your email notice. You will be redirected to a renewal form.
