Create a Job

Jumpstart your recruiting efforts in JazzHR by taking the first step to getting candidates: creating a job.

Whether this is the first thing you're ever doing in JazzHR or you're a veteran looking for a refresher, fear not—this process couldn't be more simple.

The first thing you'll want to do is click on the Jobs tab at the top of the screen, then click Create Job to get started.

Type in your job title, keep in mind that succinct and easily recognizable job titles will be the best way to attract the most candidates for your position. Choose the workflow you want, then scroll down to fill out your posting information.

Next you'll want to focus on the job description. This is very important as it is what attracts your candidates to your positions and there are a lot of suggested rules and regulations around how to craft these. For more information on best practices when posting your job, check out this article.

Use the "Job Template" to help guide you when creating your job description. This is a great guideline for you if you want the maximum amount of candidates.

  • Departments are good for organizing and categorizing your jobs internally and on your careers page
  • Internal Job Codes are internal only -- they are for your recording keeping purposes
  • Employment Type and Minimum Experience are required to post your job


Job Description Metadata

The meta description is displayed when this job appears in search results and can increase the visibility of your job. Write a concise summary of your job description to help candidates find this job using a search engine.

Example: Apply to JazzHR’s job opportunity for an Account Manager in Pittsburgh, PA


Next is a crucial step to ensure your jobs will head out to the free job boards. Job boards require a postal code to syndicate. Make sure you include a postal code for the job's location, or the nearest metropolitan area to boost your candidate flow. Indeed has a series of guidelines to continue to preserve candidate's trust, to make sure you get on their feed -- follow these guidelines.

The next part is only visible to Super Administrators and Recruiting Administrators (by default) and gives important internal information you can use to track salary or additional notes on this particular job. The salary field can only be numbers, do not insert any special characters here. 

You can use the Internal Notes section to keep a running log on this job that is only visible to roles with the Administrative Privilege: "can see sensitive job and candidate data".  You can add in your EEO questions to the application here as well. The EEO questions added here inform your compliance reporting.

Exposure refers to whether or not your jobs are going out to the free job boards -- they are selected to go out by default, clicking the toggle will remove them from syndication. You can also remove your job from your careers page (JazzHR hosted page or career page integrations) by deselecting the option to show on the careers page. Confidential search will remove your company name in your job listing, this will also remove it from the free job board feed.
