What is a Career Page?

A career page is a full-service site that helps you drive applicant interest by showcasing your company's brand, culture & employment opportunities. It's a way to advertise your job opportunities off of the job boards and an easy way to give possible candidates insight into your agency before they apply.

How do I use it to benefit my business?

You can use your career page to build up your brand and share your job openings by sharing it to social media, with referrals, or with family & friends. Ask your network to help spread your business's job opening(s) across the internet. This is a powerful way to build your online presence and increase your candidate reach.

Where can I customize my Career Page?

Settings for your Career page are located in ‘Settings’ > ‘Career Page’ tab. Any changes made to your career page are automatically saved, and you can come back and edit, at any time. Any changes you make to your career page will also reflect on your different job ad websites.

You will see each of the following in your Career page settings:

1. Company description

This is where you will want to take a minute or two to talk about your company, your brand, and your work environment. We recommend writing out about 4-7 sentences. Use your company description to boast about your culture, and try to express to candidates why they should want to work for you. If you are looking for a description that’s a little more generic or don’t have time to write one right away, use our AI feature or choose from our pre-formatted templates. You can come back and edit this at any time.

2. Image

The banner image will be displayed at the top of your career page. You can upload your own photo or you can choose from our library of options. We’ve uploaded 31 different images that are automatically sized and ready to be used. If you are uploading your own image, you will need to make sure the image dimensions are 1858 X 600 pixels.

3. Introduction Video

Upload a video to your Career Page to give candidates a better idea of who you are as a company and why they should be so excited to work with you. This helps to increase candidates' interest in your position and allows you to show off your personality and culture.

Scroll down to locate the section for the Introduction Video.

Click Upload Video to upload a video from your computer.

If you would like to embed a YouTube video or other URL, click the bubble for Video URL or Embedded URL. Paste the video embed link into the text box and your video will be added.

That's it! Candidates will be able to view your Introduction Video when they visit your Career Page.

4. Current Openings

Write a short message for candidates to read if they ever visit your career page when no jobs are actively posted.

5. Theme Settings

Here you have 3 different categories to select the colors for your page. We recommend selecting colors that best match your brand. Once you select a color, you will see it updated on the right in the "Preview" area.

6. Footer Settings

The phone number listed in your company settings will be listed on your career page. You can always click the button to turn this feature off.

Copy and Paste the URL to your company's social media accounts into the designated blank entries shown below.

By doing this, you will add your handles to your career page. Candidates can click on the social media icons and will be directed to the attached profiles where they can do more research. By adding social media, you allow the candidate to easily learn more about your agency and get a feel for the workplace they applied to/are planning to apply to. Social Icons appear at the bottom of your career page.

7. Career Page QR Code

Easily direct potential candidates to your Career Page to view your open positions through your Career Page QR code.

Make it easier for candidates to see your open opportunities in one place with flyers, "Help Wanted" signs, business cards, and more with one QR Code.

When someone scans your QR Code, it will direct them to your IdealTraits Career Page where they can view and apply to any of your Active job ads.
