When using Recruiter, you have the ability to post jobs directly on the platform and connect them to projects. This can be a very effective way to track statistics on how many people are viewing postings and applying, which can help you improve your recruiting process.
- [Instructor] As part of your overall recruitment strategy, you may want to post a job on LinkedIn through your Recruiter account, although you don't have to post a job on Recruiter in order to use it. You may just be doing general networking not associated with a specific job, or you might prefer to route applicants to your website. But there are some benefits to posting a job with Recruiter. First, I'm going to go up to the menu at the top and hover over More. And from here, I want to click on Admin Settings. Before you can post a job, you need to have job slots available.
I'll navigate to Jobs, and I can see here that I have five standard job slots available, and none of them are being used. So this is important because here I can post jobs. If I were to post, say for instance, five jobs, that will take away all of my slots and I won't be able to post another job unless I close one of the jobs I've posted or purchased more slots. Here I do have some available, though, so let's take a look at the process of posting a job. Again, I'm going to go to the menus up at the top, and this time hover over Jobs.
And here I can Post a Job or Manage Jobs. First I want to click on Manage Jobs. And this is sort of a control panel, where I can see information about the jobs that I've posted. Now of course this is empty, but I can see the status of any jobs that I currently would have open, any drafts I'd saved, or any old jobs I have closed. So let's post a new job. Up here under Jobs, I'm going to click Post a Job. And this brings up a screen that prompts us on the job creation.
So here it's asking me if I want to use my company, which I do. Here we're going to put in the title of the job. So this is a Graphics Lead job in Santa Barbara, California. And then I'll go ahead and click Next. Now, this will allow us to enter in some more information, for instance some job functions. And here they're going to give us different choices that we can choose from. We can enter whether it's full-time, the seniority level, the company industry, a job description, company description, and more.
You also can go here by help us target the right candidates, select the closest title to your job. In this case, it's a lead. And how would you like people to apply? So here it's recommended that you let applicants apply with their LinkedIn profile, and then notify you by email. However, you do have the ability to direct applicants to an external site to apply for that job. Down here, if you want to add a personal touch, you can include the job poster. And in this case, it'll show the different people who have the administrative license on my account.
I'm going to do this, but I want to enter in myself as the job poster and show profile on the job post. Now you can see that some of this information is pre-populated in here, which can save you a lot of time. It's really a neat feature that allows you to create jobs and have things like the company description already entered in. So I'm going to go ahead and choose some of the different functions of the job and enter in a job description.
Okay, so I've filled out all the information I need here, and I'm going to hit Post a Job. I could save this as a draft, but I'm going to go ahead and post this right now. I'll click Post a Job. So once I post the job, it now asks if I want to hide applicants. So do not show me applicants located outside of the United States. In this case, I do want to check that. And then I'll click on Save. And this brings us to the main page now for this job. So now let's take a look at how we can add this to a project.
And you can see here that we have different actions for the job. We can share it on different social media sites, we can edit it, copy it, and here we can save it to a project. So I'm going to go here for actions for this job, and we have several different actions. I'm going to click on Save to a Project. When I do that, it asks me to Add to Project, and I can choose the project I want to add it to. Or we can create a new project and then leave a description. I have mine in there, so I'm going to click Save. And now I have that job posted and linked to a project in Recruiter.
I'll be notified if there are any new applicants, and applicants will automatically be filtered into this project. I can view information about this job listing under Manage Jobs. So again if I go up to the top, click on Manage Jobs, it will now bring up this Graphics Lead job. On the Manage Jobs page on the left, you can see here that I have one open job. I don't have any drafts, reviews, or any closed, and it's showing me the different locations and more information. But this is the Graphics Lead job that I just created.
Now, it's nice to have all my job postings in the same place as my Recruiter tools. So I have everything together. This job has a date set in which it will expire. But if I prefer to close the job before that, I can go to this Manage Jobs screen, I can choose the job here, and decide to close it. So in other words, I'll open up this job, and I might decide that I want to close this job. In order to do so, I'll go to the tools here on the right. As you can see, it's right now set to expire on September 7. But I want to close it early, so I'll go ahead and I will click this.
It's asking me to confirm that I want to close this job. I'll click Yes. And now that job has been closed. I could view the job details and decide to re-post it if I want. So if you'd like to keep your job postings and your other recruiting work all in the same place, you can post jobs in Recruiter and manage applicants from within your Recruiter projects.
