How do I publish a print ad in C&EN and online?
DO NOT use the online service if you want your ad to appear both in print and online. Instead please e-mail a copy of your advertisement to classifieds@acs.org or contact your local sales representative to assist you in placing your order. Your online ad will post on http://cen.acs.org/cenjobs.html for a reduced rate sold in four-week increments beginning the first print insertion mail date.

I am a new user. How do I post an ad online only?
Go to employers and click on post your job. You will need to create an account by clicking on the register now button. The system will ask you to input some basic information on your company, contact information, and billing information. You will also be prompted to select a password. Once you have registered, you can click on the post a job link and the system will take you, step-by-step, through posting your job and then provide a check out for payment.

If you need technical assistance any time during the process, you can e-mail customerservice@jobcontrolcenter.com or call (toll free) 1-888-667-7988.  

Once I post my ad, when will it appear online?
Most ads appear online in one business day.

I created my ad but cannot find it on the site.
If you cannot find your ad live within 24 hours, call the customer service line
(toll free-1-888-667-7988) and a customer service representative can help resolve the problem.

What is a pick-up?
