Career Page

SmartRecruiter's Career Pages are mobile-optimized, localized and configurable web pages that lists your current job openings and allows you to drive candidate traffic, showcase your brand, and give your candidates an unparalleled user experience when expressing interest to your jobs. 

If you don't have dedicated engineering or design resources, or just want to get up and running with minimal effort, you can create a Career Page and customize it with branding and video, and tell a compelling story. SmartRecruiters' Career Page Builder makes it easy to create  a new site in minutes without requiring technical or design knowledge.

Edit layout and text

The Career Page builder is an interactive editor that allows you to directly add text, images, and styling.

There are four editable sections:

  • Add your logo and a Get in Touch button to the header.
  • Add an image, video, or text to the main hero section, and add a Search section to let candidates search through the list of jobs on the career page.
  • Add an additional section to include any other content, like images, text, or another video.
  • Configure the grouping and list type for the jobs list.

Click on each section to edit it.


The Header section contains your logo and a Get in Touch button.


Click + in the right side of the Header to add the Get in Touch button. Candidates who don't see a job that they'd like to apply to in the Career Page's list can follow the Get in Touch button to submit their resume and information to the General Application.

SmartRecruiters will localize the text of the Get in Touch button in the language set in the Career Page's Settings.

By default, the Header includes your default company logo, even if you've chosen a specific Brand in the Settings for the Career Page to change this logo. Click this logo to edit it, and then upload the image in the footer:

For best results, use an image that is at least 1680 x 420 pixels.

The hero image is horizontally and vertically centered with the background height fixed at 420 pixels. Depending on the space available, the image may be scaled to cover the background area without stretching the image.  To accommodate for different screen sizes, you will need to adjust the aspect ratio of your image accordingly for your desired outcome.

Click Add Search section to activate the job Search bar. You can enter your own default text here. If not, SmartRecruiters will localize the default Search bar text to the language selected for the Career Page.

For best results, use an image that is at least 480 x 250 pixels.

Jobs list

The jobs list will display all your jobs or the subset that you've selected in the page's Settings. 

Click Add openings title to add a custom title to the list. SmartRecruiters will localize the jobs list headers to the language selected in this page's Settings. 


The selection of your JOB LIST TYPES will determine how Jobs display on your Career Page. Three options are available. Single-column list and Two-column list will show all Jobs in a unsortable format. If you would like Jobs to be grouped by a selected Filter, please use the first option, Grouped list

When using Grouped list, you can use the drop-down on the left to determine how your Jobs display on the page. The available grouping options are Department, Location, Type of Employment, or Experience level. Selection from the drop-down on the right allows you to provide additional information about the Job. The available additional information options are Department, Location, Type of Employment, Experience level, or None. None will take the place of the selection made in the left drop-down to prevent duplication of information. 

For the Single-column and Two-column list options, the values from both drop-downs will be displayed directly below the Job Title.



When trying to configure the job/org field values to configure jobs showing up on the career site, the field values options are only visible if a job is opened with that particular value, not all selectable values in that field. Is this working as designed?
Yes - working as designed.

Application Configuration

In the Application Configuration tab, administrators will be able to customize the candidate's application experience with the two types of settings below. 

Job Ad Settings

Here you can configure the following settings regarding your job ads:

Display "Similar Jobs": You can show or hide the 'Similar Jobs' section on your job ads by using this setting. If this option is activated, the candidates visiting your job ads will see three similar jobs from other companies using SmartRecruiters.


Display job ad content for unpublished jobs: You can control the visibility of the job ad content for your unpublished/canceled job ads by using this setting.

In case you decide to hide the content of the job ad from your unpublished jobs by disabling the checkbox, your public job ad pages will look like below in case the job is a) unpublishedb) canceledc) re-published only internally:


Note: The checkbox is enabled by default. It means that the general public will be able to see the job description for the unpublished/canceled jobs in case they land on the previously-generated public job ad URL.

  • First Name, Last name and Email: is required by default

  • Resume: if selected, will require candidates to have an attachment added in the resume section.

There are no changes to the file types that can be uploaded in this field (see full list of Supported File Types for Attachments)
