Ready to dive in? Here's how:

  • Click Jobs.
  • Click +Create Job.
  • Fill out at least all necessary information on the "Post" tab:
    • "Job Title": Keep titles succinct and easily recognizable to attract the most candidates.
    • "Recruiting Workflow Template": Be sure you select the correct workflow, as this can't be changed once the job is created.
    • "Department": Use this field to organize/categorize your jobs internally and on your careers page.
    • "Internal Job Codes": These are for internal, record-keeping use only. 
    • "Employment Type"
    • "Minimum Experience"
    • "Job Description": Review best practices for writing job descriptions to ensure your post meets quality guidelines. Use the "Job Template" to guide you and attract the most candidates.
    • "Country"

  • Select appropriate tabs in the "Exposure" section for preferred visibility:
    • "Free Job Syndication": Controls whether your job is sent to our free job board partners.
    • "Career Page": Controls whether your job shows on your career page via any integration method.
    • "Public Search": Controls whether your company name appears on the posting. Note that this must be on in order for the LinkedIn RSC integration to function fully.

Job Description Metadata

Increase your job's visibility in search results by creating a meta description. A meta description is a summary of your job description that displays when your job appears in search results. Having one helps candidates find the job more easily via a search engine.

Enter a concise description—between 100-300 characters—in the "Description" section of the Post tab.
