This page details the simple steps to create an EUS job posting on the official EUS Wiki Job Board. Job Board postings are super useful for recruiting members for any EUS positions! In addition, Job Board posts get shared in the Pipeline every week!

There is also a section on adding logos to your posting, should you choose to do so. You can either use the Visual Editor (see Option 1) or edit the source (see Option 2), which can be useful whenever the Visual Editor is down. Before creating the actual post, follow these steps:

  1. Log In or Create Account then Log In by clicking these buttons at the top right corner of the screen.
  2. Navigate to the Job Board
  3. Click the '+' button on right side of the page or go to Job:New

Adding images on the wiki is generally tricky and it is a necessary part of the job board posting creation process. Wether you are editing with the visual editor or the source code, you need to have a file name that will go in the logo field. Ex: my_logo.png. This file name must match a file that was uploaded to the wiki, by navigating to the Special:Upload file upload page. Here you can upload an image file. The file name MUST MATCH THE FILE NAME used in the logo field. Otherwise it will give an error.
