Starting by clicking “Create position” in the “Positions” page.
In the first step, fill in the most important things about the position you are opening for applications.
- Job ID - is for internal use and its purpose is to help you identify each position, even if the job title is the same.
- Job title - is the title of the position.
- Application starting date - defines when the application is published.
- Application deadline - means the last date the job advertisement is open.
- Employment type - you can give more details about the type of position, e.g. full-time or part-time job.
- Job description - is where you can be creative and promote the position you have available. Play with different rich text styles, add links, images and videos.
- Language - defines the advertisement language and the communication language for the applicants in the position.
In the next step “requirements”, we dive into the position more and define what is required from the applicants. Write all the skills in the “hard skills” section, all the personality traits in “soft skills” and language requirements in “languages”. While you type them, they are automatically added in the “must-have” section, where you can separate absolute must-haves from nice-to-haves by selecting them. This way they will be divided into two sections in the job advertisement and handled differently in the feedback later on.
In a case where you, for example, prefer writing the job requirements as a text in the “free comment” field and don't want to list the requirements, you can select "hide this section in the job ad”. Free comment is for anything you want to add.
In the third step, “About us”, we talk about the company we are recruiting for.
- Benefits - is the place to list all the nice things you provide to your precious employees.
- Free comment - is again a place to add any important additions.
- Add profile - lets you decide if you want to show the company profile in the job advertisement which is highly recommended. Editing the company profile here affects only the profile that is shown in this position's job advertisement.
- Name - is the name of the company.
- Email - is an email address that reaches the recruiters in the company.
- Telephone - is the number that reaches the recruiters.
- Location - is the place where the job is located. It can be an address, city or even country. If you define it, a map is added to the job ad.
- Description - exploers what your company does
- Links to website and social media channels - guide your applicants to follow the company on the web.
- Additional information - is something that is still unsaid. Add, for example, contact hours.
The last step, “Preview”, is to polish up the advertisement.
- Templates - choose the one that you like the most.
- Colour picker - is to pick the nicest colour for the advertisement. Hint: match it with the header image!
- Header image - adds a personal touch to your ad. In different templates, the image is positioned differently.
- Custom CSS - is for the stylists! Look at the examples and figure out a way to add your own fonts, colours, borders, shadows, you name it! If you don't like something - hide it!
- Choose the order of different sections in the ad by dragging and dropping them. On the right-hand side of each section, there are also up and down arrows which can be used to move the sections.
If you defined a location in the previous step, make sure that the map on the job ad shows the right place.
Once you have the result you wished to have, click “Publish” or “save for later”. Publishing creates a link that you can first test to see the advertisement in real life and then share in the channels you like.
