The Job Postings Module allows you to post jobs for potential candidates for them to apply for. This is all done simply by filling out a series or forms. Once that’s done that position is posted on your website and the position is as good as filled. I’ll cover everything in further detail as outlined below:

Let’s start as if you just installed the Job Posting module. When you click on the Job Postings module you will see this:
Click on the “Add New” button. Once this is done you should see this:
As you can see there are many fields in which to fill out. Let’s go over the specifics of all of these fields:
Account - This field refers to the accounts that you created via the Account module. The account that you choose determines the privileges required for people to see this job posting. For example you have several accounts: one for managers, another for sales, office worker, and 1 for each location that your company has. First let’s assume the following:
Managers have all the privileges that sales has and/or more,
Salesmen have all the privileges of office workers and/or more,
Locations contain all those types of workers.
Now if you had sales positions available and you only want office workers to see it then you would type Office Worker. However this means that everyone will see it because of the way privilege is inherited in this scenario. If you wanted Salesmen to know about a managerial position then you’d type Salesmen. This means that Managers will also be able to see this job posting. To learn about this in more detail go to my KB article on accounts.
Position Responsibility - This is meant to describe what exactly is expected of the candidate if he/she is chosen for the position.
Position Qualification Information - This describes what skills the candidate should possess in order to perform well in the position.
Brief Description - This description is shown on your Jobs page at a URL like shown here: https://www.yourdomain.com/About/Jobs/.
Long Description - This describes the position in clearer and elaborated detail.
Disclaimer information - If there’s any policy in place at your company like the EEO(Equal Employment Opportunity Act) then this is the place to list it.
SEO Information - SEO (Search Engine Optimization) information allows the webpage to be found more efficiently through particular fields.
Address Information - This specifies the address of the place where the candidate will work.
Document Information - This is very similar to the “Downloads” module. You have find information about that here.
Image Information - Here you can specify what image you what to represent the job. This will be shown on your job posting page.
Position Posting Information - This is where you can view all the applicants and some basic information about them. It will look something like this:
To the left your can see a pencil icon. When click this allows you to view more details about the candidate. When clicked it will look like this:($ No Image available)
Search and Sort
Once you have a job posting created you should be able to view it from the Job Postings page. It will look like this:
If you have a lot of job postings then it may be a good idea to use the searching and sorting functionality that is offered. You can learn more about that on the “Search and Sort” page as well.
There’s also an edit button. This will take you to the same form that you used to create the position before except the fields are filled out. From here you’re able to edit the details of the job posting in case some details changed or if you didn’t get it right the first time.
