  • Create the job description
    The first step to creating a job is to create the job's ad and fill out its description, required skills, and other candidate-facing information.
  • Add Job Details
    Now that you’ve created your new job's ad, you can fill in more details for categorizing the job and optimizing your job's performance on job boards.
  • Add hiring team and headcount
    In the third step in the job creation process, add the hiring team and the job's headcount, and request approvals if necessary.
  • Advertise job ads
    In the fourth (optional) step of the job creation process, pick which paid job board to advertise the new job's ad.
  • Ask for referrals
    In the last (and also optional) step of the job creation process, share the newly created job by email or social network to bring in referrals.

This guide applies to any SmartRecruiters plan, and may describe features that are unavailable on your plan, or aren't active for a particular job. If so, just skip that section.

FAQs 

  • Can I request a job board in the Marketplace?

    If you don't see the job board you'd like to use in SmartRecruiters Marketplace, you can suggest the addition of a new job board from the Advertise step of the Job Posting Wizard.

    In the search bar in the upper left the page, start typing the URL of the board:

    Fill in the URL of the board you'd like to add, and click Submit. When you do, SmartRecruiters' Partners team will reach out to your suggested board and request a partnership. 

  • How do I create a job using a template?

    Once the template is created, your job creators can find and use it by typing in the job's title when creating a new job, and selecting the template in the Use a Template section of the list. 

  • How do I publish a saved job?

    To locate your unpublished, saved jobs, click Jobs at the top of SmartRecruiters. From there you can use the filters Filters or the Search bar to locate your job. Select the correct view from the "view jobs" section at the top to ensure you're displaying the jobs you'd like to see.

    Once you've found your job, click "Publish" and follow the Job Posting wizard.


     

  • How do I republish a job to the free aggregators?

    If you've already created a job ad, you can publish or republish it to the major job aggregators from the Edit Job wizard.

    Be careful not to repost/republish your your jobs to the free aggregators too frequently. Aggregators may blacklist your jobs or bury them farther down the results if you republish jobs before the listing expires.

    To republish an ad to the free aggregators, just edit the ad.

    Jobs submitted through SmartRecruiters to the free job aggregators usually go live on the aggregators' feeds within 24 to 48 hours

  • How do I save a job as a template?

    If you frequently post the same job in your SmartRecruiters account, create a template for the job rather than having to recreate the entire job ad. Once the template is created, your job creators can find and use it by typing in the job's title when creating a new job.

    Only Extended or Admin users can create templates.

    To create a template for a job, just select Save job as template on the Create step when creating a new job.

    Alternatively, if you've already created a job, you can save it as a template on the Job Details tab:

  • How long are jobs live on the job boards?

    In general, the majority of jobs submitted to job boards through SmartRecruiters are 30-day listings, especially for the free job aggregator boards. After this period ends, boards and aggregators will drop the job from their feed unless you republish the job.

    Be careful not to repost/republish your your jobs to the free aggregators too frequently. Aggregators may blacklist your jobs or bury them farther down the results if you republish jobs before the listing expires.

    Depending on the on the type of package you purchased through SmartRecruiters, your jobs' lifetime on a paid board may vary. 
         

  • How long until my job is posted to the free aggregators?

    Jobs submitted through SmartRecruiters to the free job aggregators usually go live on the aggregators' feeds within 24 to 48 hours

  • What happens when I copy a job?

    On the first step of the Job Posting Wizard (Create), when you start typing into the Job Title field, SmartRecruiters shows you a list of similarly-titled jobs.

    If you choose a job under the Copy the Job heading in the list, you'll simply copy the previous ad's company description, job description, qualification, and additional information (but not the location) into a new ad. Unlike job templates, copying a job does not copy over any of the details on the Details page or the scorecards assigned to the previous job.

  • What information is saved in a job template?

    When you create a job template, it will save the following information and copy it into a job when selected:

    • The details of the job ad (on the Create page of the Posting Wizard), including job title, company description, qualifications, additional information, and anything that was added on the Create step, except for location.
    • the Board Performance fields in the Details step, which are used by job boards to correctly classify your job ads.

      Templates do not save selections for your job and org fields.

    • any Interview Scorecards that were added to the job that was saved as a template.
