We also offer Job and Internship Packs that offer significantly reduced pricing if you plan on posting often. Packs provide the right to post for 3 years from the date of activation, up to the number specified, so even if your hiring needs aren't immediate, Packs can be a cost effective way to prepare for the future.

Job and Internship listings are posted on Idealist for 30 days. Listings are not priced on a time basis, so we don’t prorate our listings for shorter periods of time. 

To post your listing, you must first become an administrator of an approved organization on Idealist. If your organization isn’t listed on Idealist yet, you’ll first have to add your organization!

If you have any questions about costs, please contact us—we’re always happy to help!
