Click the Post a Job button in the top-right to show the available options:


  • From Scratch - Create a brand new job posting.

    • For more information on creating a job template, you can refer to the following article.
  • From Existing Job - Create a new job posting from an existing job posting (job posting can be closed, a requisition, open job posting, etc.)

Each option will have a similar process when creating your job posting. 

Job Details

The Job Details step allows you to enter information for the job posting that will be viewed by applicants and additional job information/configuration for internal use. Some of the fields listed below may differ depending on other settings that you have enabled and some fields may already be filled in depending on what option was selected when posting the job. 

  • Supported Language - Job postings can be set to English and Spanish. When Spanish is enabled, additional "Spanish" fields will be available to use.


  • Confidential Job Posting - If enabled, the job will be posted to the few job boards that will accept confidential postings. For a list of job boards that allow this, please refer to the following article


  • Job Title - (Required) Job Title to be advertised. The job title on a job ad should be an industry-recognized title and can differ from your internal job title.


  • Job Description - (Required) A description of the job such as company information, a list of job duties, and a list of requirements. Lists of 5 to 10 bullet points can provide a detailed enough description without becoming too lengthy.


  • Additional Job Information - This information will not be distributed publicly and will only be displayed for internal use. Internal only information could include, but is not limited to, information like salary amount, manager, and other relevant notes.


  • Location Information & Postal Code - Where the job will be located. The Postal Code is required by job boards. The job posting can be posted in multiple locations.  If you have a job opening in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York City, you may want to consider posting three separate job ads.


    • Country
    • Postal Code - (Required) The City and State will automatically populate if the zip code is within the US or Canada. All other fields will require manual entry.
    • City
    • State/Province/Region
    • Primary - (Required) Use this check box to designate the location as the primary location of the job; only 1 Primary Location can be assigned to a job posting.
      • Primary Location is the only location that will be distributed to paid job boards such as Indeed to prevent ‘Location Spamming’. If you have a job opening in multiple cities, it would be best to post separate job ads for each city
      • If posting multiple jobs for different locations to paid job boards, each job listing will be a separate charge/credit. 
    • Career Page Display - Choose how to display this location on your career page. "Show" means the location will appear with the city and state displayed, while "Hide" will not display the location on the career page.
    • Add New Location - Add up to 20 locations to your job posting.
  • Closed Date - The date the job status will change to ‘Closed’ and you will stop accepting applications for this posting. Some job boards may limit your posting to 30 days. We suggest you refresh job boards if open longer than 30 days.


  • Job Posting Fields - Any fields in this section are custom and controlled by the system admin. For more information about job posting fields, you can refer to the following article.


  • Auto Responder - Will send the candidate an email letting them know that their submission has been received. For information about creating an email template for "Auto Responder," you can refer to the following article.


  • EEO (Equal Employment Opportunity) Job Category - This is optional and will be used in your AAP report to track candidates who participate in the voluntary affirmative action survey.


  • EEO Job Group - This is optional and can be used to group similar jobs together into one category.


  • Labels to Assign - When a label is selected from the drop-down menu, candidates will be given the specified label to make it easier to find candidates with that label. (E.g. If you specified "Driver" as the label, the candidates will receive a "Driver" label. If you have an opening for a "Driver" in the future, you can search your candidate pool for candidates labeled "Driver" to save time in the recruitment process.) For more information about candidate labels, you can refer to the following article.


  • Assigned To - (Required to be assigned to at least 1 user) Individuals assigned to the job posting will receive emails based on the Notification Preference set in their User Profile. Non-admin users (depending on permissions set by the system admin) will gain access to the job and manage the applicants (comments, emailing, etc…).


  • Number of Openings - Use this field when filling multiple openings with the same job description to track how many openings you have filed and how many are left to fill.
