Vicinity Jobs

SmartAdvertising Program Overview

To publish advertising, you need a free employer account.(If you don't have one yet, click here to sign up) You can book a standard advertising box such as those illustrated below that is 235 pixels wide and 100 pixels high, and then provide the content for it in either text format (you can simply type it in), or as a GIF or JPG image. Images larger than the advertising box will be resized to fit in it, but their original proportions will be kept.

Once your advertising message is ready for publishing, you will choose the regional Vicinity Jobs web sites that you want to place it on, and the sections in which you want it to appear (ie, Title page, Business jobs, Technical jobs, etc). This allows you to target visitors based on their locations and on the job type that they are looking for. You will also be asked to specify how long your advertising should run for.

Once your advertising is online, our software will ''mix'' it with the content of the section and the web site of your choice. This ''mixing'' occurs randomly each time someone views the page, to ensure that your message does not appear in the same spot every time. This guarantees that even frequent visitors will notice it, because they cannot simply learn to ''ignore'' advertising (as the advertising section appears in a different location each time).

While your message is online, we will track and report to you the exact number of times it has been displayed and clicked on. You can change the content as often as you like, without incurring an extra charge.

Profile of our visitors: Over 95% of visitors to our web sites are residents of the Greater Toronto Area. Due to the nature of our web sites, virtually all of them are working age people looking for employment, or managers and recruiters looking to hire. Information about the number of visitors to each web site and section is available upon request.
