Employment Listings FAQ

I just want to talk to a human being; who can I contact?

Please contact Employment Services by e-mail at careers@aarsbl.org.  


Do I have to be a member of the American Academy of Religion or Society of Biblical Literature to advertise in Employment Listings?

No. Anyone may post an advertisement.


Are Employment Listings advertisements available in a print format?

No. Employment Listings advertisements are only available online.  For this reason, we cannot provide “tear sheets” to advertisers. We strongly encourage employers to print invoices and copies of advertisements. 


When are Employment Listings advertisements published and are there deadlines?

There are no submission or publication deadlines.  Employment Listings advertisements are run continuously throughout the calendar year and advertisements are auto-published on the website. Publication dates are selected by employers. 


What does an Employment Listings ad cost?

Employment Listings ads are $60 per week for up to 52 weeks, with a minimum of 4 weeks ($240).


How do I make payment for an Employment Listings advertisement?

Payment can be made online at the time of submission by credit card. Listings are not published until payment is received.


How does one submit an advertisement for Employment Listings?

Advertisements for Employment Listings must be submitted online through Employment Services.  Advertisements submitted by e-mail, fax, or surface mail will not be accepted.


How can I see my advertisement?

Anyone logged into www.aarsbl.org as an SBL or AAR member or employer may view advertisements.


How may I make a change to our advertisement (change logo, typographical error, have the ad removed, etc.)?
You may make changes to your advertisement by going to the Employment Listings submission page and clicking the edit link that allows you to modify a submitted advertisement.  Alternately, you may contact Employment Services at 404-727-2286 or careers@aarsbl.org


Can I change the active period for an Employment Listings advertisement?

Generally, yes.  If the ad has not been published, you may change both the start and end dates.  If the ad is currently published, you will only be able to change the end date.  Ads that have recently expired (less than 30 days) may be extended. Ads that are expired (30 days or more) may be copied and published again as a new ad.
