Re:   Display Advertising in University Affairs to Fulfill HRSDC Requirements


____________________________________________________________________________________

Currently, the Provost’s Office supports the recruitment advertising efforts of faculties and departments by placing advertisements in University Affairs, on the University of Toronto website and on Academic Careers Online.  Advertisements are generated by individual chairs and departments through an online template.

Last year, advertising was placed throughout the year, although the numbers varied month by month, with the peak occurring in October 2004 (see diagram below).

In an effort to make the Provost’s Office contribution towards recruitment more effective we are moving to display advertisements in University Affairs rather than simple line listings, which will have more impact while still fulfilling the HRSDC requirements.   All academic positions will now be advertised in display form with separate online listings.  It will not always be possible to reproduce the entire text of an advertisement, instead, applicants will be directed to the UofT Academic Opportunities website for full details.  The attached example of a one-page display advertisementAttachment (185 KB) will appear in the March issue of University Affairs. We have arranged two-page display advertisements to coincide with our peak months for recruitment advertising.

In order to ensure that your positions appear in the appropriate issue of University Affairs we ask that you keep the deadlines listed below in mind.  In general, if you would like a position to appear in a particular issue of University Affairs it must be received one week prior to the submission of the advertisement to the publisher.
