Q. How do I post a job listing in Career Connections?
A. Job postings are free of charge to employers and position specifications are listed in a secure area accessible only to FWA Members. Opportunities are posted every few business days and edited to comply with the specific website format and allocated space. Listings will remain for about three months unless otherwise requested. Postings are not reviewed with the listing party after editing. Listings are run at the discretion of the FWA.
Job opportunities that are typically posted are within industries including marketing, finance, risk, audit, accounting, trading and investments, technology, legal, project management, operations, general management (includes head of non-profit), as well as C-suite positions such as CFO and COO.
Three Requirements for Listings:
- Minimum Salary:
Corporate Sector: base salary + first year’s bonus/commission, minimum of $100,000. Not-for Profit Sector: base salary minimum of $75,000. Compensation must be included. However, you may request we not publish this information.
- Employer or Search Firm Name:
The FWA does not have the ability to act as an intermediary between job posters and Members. Therefore, listings must include the address, phone number and e-mail address of the contact person, or an alternative method for applying to the position (e.g., online URL).
