1. If I am an agency or recruiting firm and I would like to create an account and post a job on behalf of my client, what should I do?
Yes, you do have the ability to create an account and post jobs on behalf of your client. However, to avoid creating multiple accounts for the same client please contact our customer service staff at 1-800-635-6991 or by email at ads@nejmcareercenter.org and we'll be happy to assist you.

2. What do I do if I try to create an account that already exists?
Please contact our customer service staff at 1-800-635-6991 or by email at ads@nejmcareercenter.org and we'll be happy to assist you. Please do not try to re-type the account by using a variation of the company name as this can create duplicate accounts and we want to ensure that your job postings are associated with the correct account(s).

3. What do I do if I forgot my login and password?
You can click on the "Forgotten password?" link on the Log In page and our system will send you an automated email with a link included where you'll be able to easily change your password.

Please do not try to create a new account as we try to avoid duplicate accounts in our system.

All advertisements are subject to approval by the New England Journal of Medicine, which reserves the right to reject or cancel any advertisement at any time. Approvals may take up to seven days.
