How to add job postings (help wanted) posts as an Employer.

Anonymousby Anonymous on Wednesday, Dec. 1, 2010

Posting your help wanted job post for employers and recruiters is very easy but will take a little time. We like to cut out the fat, fluff and the typically company information that has nothing to do with the job you are looking to fill. Read more...

Adding a new job post is easy but not always quick. Employers should talk about the job and what they expect candidates to know regarding the job. This should be detailed so you can attract more qualified applicants as well as informing your applications from the start what you expect.

The number one waste of time most large corporations do is talk about how great it is to work with the company and focus on benefits more than the actual job. New job seekers may find this information helpful while more skilled workers find this information a waste of reading time. Benefits can be mentioned as part of the hiring package but focus should be on what you expect the applicate to know before applying for the job.

We will be showing some good examples and why some employers find skilled workers faster than others. Many times overlooking what you might think is obvious can lead to a qualified worker clicking away from your post.

Posting your Help Wanted announcement

From the Edit Job Post menu click on the job post you would like to edit then click the Edit Job Post button. This will be the same form as the Add Job Post but will include your information for this job post. You can then edit or update information.

Show or Hide Job Post

Once your first job post is approved by one of our mentors or editors you will see the job post in this list. This is so you can post future jobs online ready to be shown or hide a job for any reason. Be sure you check the job closing dates because any job hidden that has reached it's closing date will be deleted.

Delete Job Post

Once your job has been filled you can manually delete the job before the closing date or wait for the closing date and our system or mentors will delete it for you.

Look for more trianing tips in our member pages.

Notes: Old Jobs, out of date postings, closed positions or job posts that are not imidiate hire. Anything that isn't a valid job we concider as a fake job. Many job sites repost old out of date jobs so they have content and look like they have something to offer. Most of the site that do display closed or fake jobs are in the business of collecting resumes. We do not follow this rule when it comes to our direct employer postings. If the job is not valid we will remove it from our site.
