Get started in JazzHR by posting a job.

This article will show you how to post and customize a job so that candidates can begin applying to your open positions. Looking for a guided walkthrough? Watch our Job Posting video from the JazzHR Training Portal.

Create a compelling job description within the "Job Description" field. Need assistance? Check out our 50+ templates from our Job Description Library.

You must complete all required fields in order to save or publish your job. Use the Job Posting guide on the right side of the page to ensure all required fields are met.

Pro Tip: Your default Recruiting Workflow Template will be pre-selected. Be sure to select the correct Workflow, as this can't be changed once the job is created.

Customize A Job

Head to the Workflow, Team, Refer, and Advertise tabs of your Job for additional customization. 

Workflow

Manage this job's workflow on the Workflow tab.

Screen_Shot_2020-01-07_at_11.32.14_AM.png

Remember that if your job is posted, there is already a Workflow template that you selected on the Post tab unless it's unlocked first. To make changes after you have posted the job, you can either:

  • Edit the template - this may affect other jobs using the same template.
  • Unlock this job from the Workflow - a job-specific workflow will then be created which allows you to make changes to this job's workflow only.

  • Send emails to specific users asking for referrals on either one individual job or all jobs in your account.

FAQs

I posted a job yesterday, and I'm not seeing it on the job boards. Where's my job?

Jobs can take up to 48 hours to syndicate to the free job boards. If you don't see your job after 48 hours of posting, contact support@jazzhr.com.

Can I edit a job after I post it?

Yes,  click the job title from the Jobs page and then Edit Job. Any edits will refresh on the job boards the within the next 24 - 48 hours.

How can I add an image to my job description?

Drag and drop images to the job description or click the image icon in the Job Description toolbar to upload an image. Select the image to drag and resize.  

Can I leave job-level notes or attachments?

Notes can be input in our "Internal Notes" field in the Sensitive Data area of the Post tab. We don't have the ability to add attachments at the job level.

How can I make sure my jobs get on Indeed's organic feed?

Follow our job posting best practices to ensure you meet Indeed's guidelines. Contact support@jazzhr.com with any questions. Note: If your job does not meet Indeed's quality guidelines, an email with update instructions is sent to the original Creator of the job. 

Can I set a job to be private?

Yes, toggle "Free Job Syndication" and "Career Page" (in the "Exposure" section of the Post tab) to No. 

How do I remove a job from the free job boards?

Put it into any status other than "Open" and it should be removed from job boards within 24 - 48 hours. Some paid postings, however, need to be manually removed. Contact support@jazzhr.com if you change your job status and it still appears on job board(s).

Why is the salary information for my job posting incorrect on the job boards?

Job boards use their own rules for how they determine what salary to include with a posting. 
Indeed will display salary information if it is included in the Job Description field in JazzHR.
LinkedIn uses their own proprietary estimates by looking at similar salaries that are submitted by LinkedIn members who have the same title, are in the same geographic market, and work for companies of similar size.
