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 to 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 businesses job opening(s) across the internet. This is a powerful way to build your online presence and increase your candidate reach. You can also attach your career page to your website and advertise to those who visit your business online. (The script to link your career page to your website is available in your account settings under the career page tab)
Where can I customize my Career Page?
Settings for your Career page are located in ‘Settings’ > 'Hiring 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.
