Question: What is the difference between a multi-office form and an individual office form?
Answer: The system provides an opportunity for employers to submit a NALP Form for a single office or to combine several offices on a Multi-Office Form. In order to present a complete picture of an organization for job seekers, NALP encourages large employers to complete and publish both a multi-office form and individual office forms.
Please note that a multi-office form is designed to represent several locations.
Beginning in 2013, employers have the option to associate one or more locations for search with each multi-office form. One location for search (city/state) is included in the initial listing fee. Additional cities can be associated with a single multi-office form for $200 per city.
