Adding a new job post is easy but not always quick. Employers should talk about the job and what they expect candidates to know and what skills you expect them to have before knocking on your door.
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
First you will need to sign up as a business member or employer. Use our "Create Account" link to register.
Click on the login link near the top of the page and login to your account.
Most everything you will need will be in your My Account page. This should be your first page visited after login. You may also find in the left menu column other links specific to your login type.

Employers that do not have any job posts online with us will see a single button Add Job Post. The image below shows more buttons and options because of active job posts.

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.

Notes: Old Jobs, out of date postings, closed positions or job posts that are not immediate hire. Anything that isn't a valid job we consider 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 Many job sites repost old out of date jobs so they have content and look like they have something to offer.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.
Make sure you write down a little about the job before you post your help wanted. Many job seekers may become intimidated if you use abbreviations instead of words. We know some industries have specific abbreviations and you would hope your job applicant would know this but we do have case studies and found it's better for job posters (Employers) to write clearly what you need.
Example: Jig, Java, Sig, Asp, Mig, Sql, Arc, RF, Acc, R.F., Rd, Rn, Un, Eck, Ack, covers 3 or more labor skills and we need to make sure everything is in order. The IT industry has reused many well known abbreviations which makes it very important to spell out what you are requiring. RF Radio since Marconi was Radio Frequency but the Medical industry associates RF and Radio with Radiology. The worker with the RF experience received job offers for years from local hospitals. The HR departments not only used simple search terms they never once read the applicants resume to see that it wasn't radiology but radio communications.
Abbreviate as you wish in areas that might offer limited character space but in your full details section abbreviations should be avoided for clarity. A few minutes more typing can save you hours of later when you are reviewing Communications resumes when you should be reviewing Radiology resumes.
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 applicant to know before applying for the job.
