In this article, we’ll walk you through the steps to create a job in Recruitee so you can publish it on your careers site, post it to job boards, and attract new candidates in no time.

📌 This video features an earlier version of Recruitee's UI that may look different than what Recruitee looks like today.


In this article:


You can get started in two ways: Click +New in the top bar of Recruitee and select Job, or go to the Jobs section and click +New job.

Job posting

Fill out the key information about your job.

Start by giving your job a title.

📌

We’ll use the job’s title to generate the job URL on your careers site. For example, the job Senior Designer will have the URL www.testcompany.recruitee.com/o/senior-designer.

You can customize your job’s URL by following these steps.

Once your job has a title, you can save it as a draft and come back to finish setting it up at any time.

Next, choose a Department and assign a Recruiter and Hiring Manager to the job.

💡 Use the Recruiter and Hiring manager fields as placeholders in your email templates or senders of automated emails.

Write an engaging job description and list the requirements candidates must fulfill to apply for this job. Use formatting, add images, and be creative; we’ve gathered tips for writing great job descriptions.

Job location

Country: The country where the hire will be based.

State/Region: The state/region where the hire will be based.

City: The city where the hire will be based.

📌 Country, State/Region, and City are required fields. For a remote job, fill out the original team’s location.

Street: The street name of the job’s location.

ZIP code: The ZIP code of where the hire will be based.

Remote job: Toggle this option to green if your job is for remote workers. A Remote job tag will appear next to this job on your careers site. The job board posting will also include this tag.

Job details

These fields are essential if you want to post to free job boards or start a campaign on premium job boards. Information in these fields helps your applicants understand the position a lot better and see if they're a good match.

  • Employment Type: Indicate the nature of the contract – whether it's permanent or fixed-term, full-time or part-time… Choose the option that best aligns with the candidate's expected commitment level.

  • Category: Classify the job into a broader industry, such as Accounting. This gives candidates a quick overview of the field the position belongs to.

  • Required Education: Specify the minimum qualifications for the role. For example, if a "High school" education is enough, you don't have to specify anything above that in the job details.

  • Required Experience: Outline the minimum desired experience level for applicants to attract the largest number of suitable candidates.

💡If a specific requirement isn't available in the options, choose the closest equivalent to still provide relevant information to potential candidates.

💡In cases where two options seem equally fitting, opt for the minimum requirement. This approach broadens the pool of potential candidates without excluding those who might meet the job criteria.

📌 Each job board has its own requirements and uses a predefined list of options. Because of that, the jobs you create in Recruitee have to be adapted to these requirements. As a result, you may spot differences in how the job information is shown on a job board, e.g. jobs published by Recruitee as “Full time, permanent” can sometimes be displayed as “Full time” on a job board.


Application form


Workflow

When requisition approvals are enabled

When Requisition approvals are enabled, you can create jobs based on requisitions.

To do so, you can either create a new job directly from the Requisition approvals module or click +New job button in Jobs and choose the From requisition option. Once a requisition is associated, you'll notice that some of the fields from the Job posting tab are already filled in with the data used from the requisition.

You can also assign a requisition to an already existing job: go to the Job editor and enter the new tab called Requisition.

Remember, only approved requisitions can be associated with jobs.

When requisition approvals will be disabled or are marked as optional

Job postings now have a new field called Number of openings. Users with permission to Manage jobs can define the number of openings available per job. It is not possible to hire more candidates for a job than the number of openings defined. However, the number of job openings can be edited at any time in the hiring process.

If your job was assigned to requisition and the module is later disabled, the number of openings will be automatically filled in.
