Event post - Get listed in Austin's most comprehensive calendar of green events!
Fee-based events hosted by non-profit organizations, as well as all events hosted by businesses are either included in partnership dues or cost $32 per post.

Job and internship posts are published on our extremely successful jobs board. Your posting fee of $32 also includes a listing in our twice-weekly EcoNews publication delivered to over 5700 subscribers. The first time it is featured in the EcoNews your job will be called out as a "New Job", and will include the title, your company logo (which you must upload under the "organization" tab while posting on the website), as well as a brief summary of the position with a link to the full description on our site. In subsequent editions it will include the title, your company logo, and link to your job posting on our site.
Your Job or Internship posting is either included in your paid partnership benefits (counts as one of your paid monthly exposures) or you will receive an invoice for each job/internship posted. Positions will be listed after payment is received. Paid job/internship posts include continuous listing of the position on the jobs section of AustinEcoNetwork.com until the position is filled.
