Since the inception of the .Jobs sTLD in 2005, Employ Media has outsourced the duties of the Sponsoring Organization (currently the Society for Human Resource Management). In this role the Sponsor establishes an HR Council and provides assurance to Employ Media this Council is able to function independently as required by Employ Media’s sTLD Registry Agreement with ICANN. Beginning in 2021, Employ Media plans to assume the duties of the Sponsor, notably to establish the HR Council and to continue to ensure this Council functions independently to serve the needs of the .Jobs Community.

Part of this process involves making edits to our .Jobs sTLD Registry Agreement with ICANN. We are our working cooperatively with ICANN to publish these edits to invite public comment. We will post a link here to the ICANN website for this purpose when made available:
