Why to Post a Featured Opportunity on HISTPRES!?

HISTPRES is the best online resource of employment and internship opportunities for emerging historic preservation professionals. That means it’s the best place to post your open preservation position. Or call for papers, and scholarships, contests, events and more.

Our site is designed to attract the most qualified and committed young preservationists and we average 10,000 unique visitors a month. Each job posted is personally selected on tried-and-true criteria. Is it neat?, Would I work there?, and more serious qualifiers, like How many years of required experience?, Is the compensation sufficient?, Does the position allow for growth and exploration?, How can this opportunity advance preservation?

If your organization or business is interested in attracting the best candidates, post on HISTPRES – over 45% of our readers have a Master’s degree in Historic Preservation! They’re smart, good at what they do, and want to work hard for your company or organization.

Here’s what the owner of a noted historic window experts, Northwood Restoration, said about the success of posting on HISTPRES;

I received about a dozen resumes, about half were from out of state and one from Italy! There are a few good local candidates I will be considering within the next week or so. Overall, I am satisfied with the response. The individuals who applied all stressed the passion for historic architecture, which was what I was looking for  – compared to what I usually find on other avenues such as Craigslist.

Our Featured Post includes the best placement on our popular website, custom huge image, and a promotional campaign through social media. We will work with you to organize and schedule the post for maximum effectiveness. And our rates are more management for businesses and organizations of all sizes.
