Last week we received a few queries from people having trouble with the links to our full job postings. Because the URLs for our database entries are long, they wrap over two or more lines. Email readers will only hyperlink the first part of the line, creating a faulty URL. You can either cut and past the complete address from the email (check to see if an extra space has been inserted where the link breaks) or visit the current job postings on our website at (choose to display "Job Postings"). And let us know if you continue to have trouble by emailing
