Recruiter Policies

The BYU Marriott School of Business is striving to create an environment that encourages professionalism and academic achievement in the Tanner Building. To help facilitate this goal, there are twenty-three flat-screen monitors in the Tanner Building designated to display digital advertisements.

Digital signage at BYU Marriott is intended to replace all printed signage, such as posters or vinyl lettering, except the following: bulletin board flyers, information table signage, school-sponsored or special event signage, or building closure flyers.

Format

Ads must be a standard (4:3) horizontal PowerPoint slide (preferred) or a 1024×768-pixel .jpg/.png with a resolution of at least 72 dpi. Slides will run 6–8 seconds each in a continual rotation. PDF files cannot be posted.

Design

All ads must be created and submitted by the sponsoring organization.

Design tips:

  • Horizontal billboard-style design works best
  • Avoid text-heavy slides; Each slide gets 6–8 seconds of viewing time
  • Font size should be 12 points minimum
  • Sans serif fonts, such as Arial, are easier to read
  • Double-check content. Does it answer what, when, where?
  • Style formatting
    • Room numbers—Number before name: e.g. W408 TNRB
    • Dates—Weekday, Date Month: e.g. Thursday, 1 September
    • Time—Exclude :00, include periods in a.m. and p.m.: e.g. 9:30–11 a.m., 11 a.m.–1 p.m.

Submissions

The BYU Marriott Business Career Center recruiter support team will oversee recruiter ads. Please submit your ads to recruitersupport@byu.edu.

The digital signage administrators reserve the right to change or edit the design or text of an ad; therefore, ads should be submitted in an editable format. If a .jpg/.png is submitted, it may be returned for correction. Major changes to an ad will not be made by the digital signage administrators. However, if after submission you notice a slight change that needs to be made, please contact recruitersupport@byu.edu.

Ads will only be posted that comply with BYU’s On-Campus Recruiting Policy.

Timeline

Submissions thirteen or more days before an event will run for two weeks. Emergency submissions received fewer than five business days before an event will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

Restrictions

Only BYU Marriott or BYU-related events and information will be posted. Digital signage must not contain any unauthorized use of copyrighted materials or inappropriate language or images. By submitting slides for digital signage, you are stating that you have rights to use all images and content. BYU Marriott also prohibits advertising, selling, or soliciting by outside businesses, agencies, or individuals on digital signage.

Editing

The BYU Marriott Business Career Center recruiter support team will be the key contact for signage. All slides will be reviewed by two editors. Editors may reject or restrict submissions.

For some large BYU Marriott events, the ads may be paused to run event-related information.
