Outlets for highly-experienced Teachers and/or Directors?

In summary, the Administrative Coordinator for a STEM camp and afterschool education program in NYC is looking for suggestions on where to find experienced Site Directors for upcoming camps. They have already posted on Indeed and plan to use Glassdoor and LinkedIn, but are seeking additional platforms. Suggestions from the conversation include creating flyers at nearby universities and avoiding paid forums or subscriptions.

Hi, I'm the Administrative Coordinator for a rapidly-growing STEM camp & afterschool education program (NYC based) that is beginning to look for Site Directors for the upcoming winter and summer camps. Does anyone know any sites or places I should look into where people of said-experience hang out? I'm thinking for forums similar to reddit or any other similar sites. So far we have postings on Indeed and will likely add Glassdoor/LinkedIn as additional platforms, but other than those platforms are there any I'm missing out on?

Attached is a list of resources I've considered.

Welcome to PF!

Many platforms on your list seem reasonable, but I wouldn't think Reddit, Facebook or Craigslist (or PF) would good bets. Are you creating paid ads for any these platforms?

Do you have universities nearby? I would think you would get good responses if you put up professional-looking flyers on the bulletin boards of the Physics, Engineering and Math departments, and maybe also the Student Union. I see such flyers on the bulletin boards at Stanford when I stop over there, for example.

I'd prefer to dodge paid forums or subscriptions, unless they prove to have incredible R.O.Is.
