Why use ELAM to advertise your positions?

  • The readership rate of the Edge is consistently 3 to 5% above the industry average.
  • Our rates are lower than many job posting sites.
  • We offer the additional service of putting together resource lists of qualified candidates, all graduates of the ELAM program.

ELAM Career Services – Job Postings & Resource Lists

ELAM welcomes position announcements for our biweekly alumnae e-newsletter, ELAM Edge. The Edge reaches over 1,200 program graduates and current fellows, all senior-faculty level women at nearly 270 academic health centers and organizations internationally. These newsletters are archived online for eight weeks.

Additionally, ELAM can prepare a resource list of program graduates for consideration as candidates or sources for others' names for senior-level positions.

ELAM Edge E-newsletter

The ELAM Edge is an alumnae e-newsletter with senior-level job positions, ELAM and alumnae news, and other resources and information that is circulated every other week to the graduates of the ELAM program.

The past four editions of the ELAM Edge are available online.

The cost for a one-time inclusion of a position in the biweekly email and an eight-week posting on our website is $500. The cost per requested resource candidate list is $1,000.
