Longwoods Publishing
has a very busy online Healthcare JobSheet. Positions posted on our JobSheet are promoted in the Longwoods weekly eLetter, which goes out every Tuesday morning to over 40,000 readers.The JobSheet is a very popular feature and is used by recruiters seeking the top candidates in the healthcare sector.

We plan to extend this popular niche offering to the exhibitor area of HealthAchieve2008 - November 3 and 4, 2008. The Longwoods Publishing exhibit booth is just to your right as you get off the escalators on the HealthAchieve exhibit floor.

Front and centre in our space, Longwoods will display an old fashioned, laundromat style bulletin board featuring the positions from the JobSheet.

Up to 8,000 attendees will pass by this board on November 3rd and 4th. They are bound to stop, abruptly, and read the laundromat-inspired pin-up notes offering new career opportunities.

If you have an exhibit at the show, your posting can direct people to your booth. If not, it can direct them to your online recruiting site. Longwoods will prepare and print your ads in advance so they will look neat, tidy and professional.

We are offering this fun feature at no extra charge beyond the rate of a job posting on the Longwoods Healthcare JobSheet. Contact me, Susan Hale, by e-mail, or call 416-864-9667 x 104 for details regarding how to post and the related cost.

I look forward to hearing from you. This should be fun.

HealthAchieve2008 is Canada's largest healthcare show, attracting thousands of hospital leaders and healthcare professionals from across the country.
