jobs

We have added job-board like functionality to our website with newly-added jobs listings. We will be integrating our Indeed jobs listings with this site. The site is designed so that local employers in Alexandria, Virginia can post their listings on Alexandria, Virginia’s most popular news/media website.

With this jobs listings page, employers can:

  • Allow job listers to preview their listing before it goes live. The preview matches the appearance of a live job listing.
  • Each listing can be tied to an email or website address so that job seekers can apply to the jobs.
  • Searches also display RSS links to allow job seekers to be alerted to new jobs matching their search.
  • Allow logged in employers to view, edit, mark filled, or delete their active job listings.

As with everything on this site, if you have a comment/suggestion, please contact me at this link.
