Use custom domain for your Careers Site

1. Click "Careers Site" on the top menu > Go to your Careers Site.

2. Click “Careers Site editor” on the left.

3. Scroll down to the "Advanced settings" section > Click “Site address / Domain”.

4. In the "Custom domain" field, type the custom domain you want to use to host the "Careers Site address".

For example, if your "Careers Site address" is "company.recruitee.com" and your "Custom domain" is "jobs.company.com", that means "jobs.company.com" hosts "company.recruitee.com"

NOTE:

  • You MUST ALWAYS fill out the "Custom domain" field to let the DNS from your domain know that "company.recruitee.com" is the receiver of your subdomain "jobs.company.com"
  • You can only use a subdomain of your website for "Custom domain", like "jobs.company.com" or "careers.company.com", NOT "company.com/jobs"
  • If you don't want to create a subdomain and just want to show all your Jobs on your website, please check these options

5. Ask your webmaster to approve the custom domain (your subdomain) in your hosting DNS settings (CNAME).

If you DO NOT put DOT (.) at the end, you need to input only the subdomain part:

jobs             CNAME   secure.recruitee.com
www.jobs    CNAME   secure.recruitee.com

NOTE: Some providers don't work with the CNAME DNS settings.
