Your job post will go online immediately if it is not pending payment. If you are paying by e-transfer, your job post will go online once we have received your payment. Please review the instructions for paying by e-transfer here.

How long will my post stay active?

The maximum amount of time a regular post can be online is 60 days. If you would like your post to be active for a shorter amount of time, select a Closing Date in the job posting form.

How does a Featured Posting work?

If you choose to purchase a featured post, your post will appear at the top of the Job Board and move down to the regular section once the number of days you selected for your featured post are over (3 to 7 days). You can also re-feature a post or add featuring to a regular post later in My Jobs in your account dashboard. Featured postings are $15+HST per day.

When does Work in Culture post on its social media about my featured post?

If your featured post is up for more than 7 days, then contact us to schedule a social post on Work in Culture’s LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter pages. Contact [email protected].

Can I edit my post after it is live?

Please contact Naomi Stokes at [email protected] or Brianne DiAngelo at [email protected] if you would like to make edits to a post after it is live on the site.

Can I access and re-post a post that has expired?

Yes. All of your posts are saved in your account. You can access old posts at any time from My Jobs in your account dashboard. There you can edit and repost. However, please note that a new charge will apply each time you repost.

I am not an arts, culture or heritage organization but I am hiring for a creative position (i.e., marketing, design, writing, editing, etc.). Can I still post on the Job Board?

Absolutely! We have thousands of talented job seekers from a wide range of disciplines and sectors who use our Job Board.

Creating an account and logging in

Do I need to have an account to post a job or career development opportunity?

Yes. If you’re posting on the Job Board or a career development opportunity for the first time, you will be prompted to create an account and sign in when creating a new listing.

If you’ve posted on the Job Board before, you can sign in with your user account by going to Post a Job. You will need to update your password if you used our previous Job Board, which was built on a different platform.

What if I don’t remember my password or I want to reset it?

Click on Post a Job and then Sign in to access the login page. Then click on Lost your password? under the login form and follow the prompts to reset your password. You will receive a link to create a new password via email. If it does not work when you click on it, please copy the link and paste it into your web browser. If all else fails, try using another broswer.

Why am I having trouble logging in?

Check to see you have the right email and password and track who has access to this information. Someone in your organization with the login info may have changed the password. Please check with your colleagues if that is the case. Otherwise, contact our office for help.
