Frequently Asked Questions

What is the cost for posting a job?

Edpost is free for schools and school districts to post open positions and for anyone to view.

How long is the position posted?

The postings on EdPost will stay active for 60 days. Do not repost a position within this active period unless the position has changed and you have submitted a request to remove the original post.

How often can I post a position?

Each position should only be posted once every 60 days. Employers who post duplicate positions will have their account restricted to having their positions approved by an administrator. If there are changes to your position, you may submit a request for removal of the original post to candice.cheesman@stcloudstate.edu and submit an updated post to edpost@stcloudstate.edu

How do I request changes to my posting or have it removed early?

Send an e-mail to Candice Cheesman at candice.cheesman@stcloudstate.edu. Please include the EdPost ID if available, if not, include the title of your posting, the date it was posted and any changes needed. Be aware that changes and removals may take up to one week, but you can set an expiration date for a post in advance. Simply email Candice the date that you would like the position to close and it can be pre-scheduled

I'm not receiving a confirmation e-mail like it states I would. Why?

First Time Poster - Confirmation posts are automatically triggered if you are already in the EdPost system, however, if you are a first time submitter, you will not receive a confirmation. Please check the EdPost site for confirmation that your post is active within one week. 

Established Poster - The reason may be that your e-mail server sees the confirmations as spam because they are sent out automatically. You may want to check your spam or junk mail folder in your e-mail.

I am from a recruiting agency. Are there special requirements for me to post a job?

Yes! We have two main requirements:

  1. There may not be a fee to the applicant before, during or after the application process.
  2. You must clearly state in the job posting that you are a third party recruiter and there is no fee to the applicants.

The job I want to post is not within a school or school district. Where can I post it?

You may post the jobs through Handshake. This site is only available to SCSU students and alumni. You may contact other universities and colleges directly to inquire about advertising to their students and alumni.

How long does it take for the position to get posted after I send the e-mail?

If you have posted before, it is immediate.* The body of your email is your actual posting and anything you write in the e-mail will be viewable on the website. If you don’t see it on the website within a day, please e-mail Candice Cheesman at candice.cheesman@stcloudstate.edu.. Include the posting title and the date it was sent.

* If this is your first time posting, your submission will be manually reviewed and verified before the posting will appear on the website. Please allow up to one week for your position to post.

I have several openings. Can I send them all in on email?

We suggest that if you have multiple positions with the same title you only post once for those positions (ex: Elementary Teachers, 1st grade - MN city schools). However, we do not recommend that you include positions with different titles in one posting. Potential candidates may not be able to find positions that interest them if the subject/title doesn’t match the position.

When I looked at my posting, I noticed my automatic signature is included. Why?

Because anything that is in the body of the e-mail stays on the posting. Please delete your signature before sending the e-mail. If you forget and need it removed from the posting, please e-mail Candice Cheesman at candice.cheesman@stcloudstate.edu and include the EdPost ID (if available), the title of your posting and the date it was sent. It may take up to one week for this update to be made.

I am looking for a nanny. Where can I post this position?

Effective June 15, 2014, postings from private households/individuals will no longer be accepted. This is a precaution for the safety of all involved. An alternative site to consider to promote hiring needs is www.care.com as their site includes a wide variety of in-home job postings.
