How to Add a Job

JobScore makes posting and managing jobs easy!

With just a few clicks your jobs can be posted for candidates to find and apply.

Post a Job

Step 1: Add Job Description

Before you get started, it's a good idea to write up a job post. Naturally, we have some ideas about how to write a great one — read about it now!

You can also create and save default job description templates.

Step 2: Add Job

To add a job, click Jobs then, Add Jobs.


Paste in your job description. Update the formatting by using the controls on the page. Here’s what our template looks like to help you create your own!

If you want your job to show up on your corporate careers site right away, set the job's status to Open. If you want other people to review and approve the job, set it to On Hold and it won't be published immediately.

Check Publish to post the job to your careers site.


Step 3: Add Job Details

Blamo! — You’re on your way! Here’s what happens once you’ve hit Next.

On the Add Job: Job Details page, enter all of the job details. You'll be prompted to set the department and location for the job. If you don't see the location or department you need in the list, then select "Add Department" and "Add Location" in the drop down lists to add new ones.

We strongly recommend entering as much information as you can in the Job Details as we use this information to match candidates for your jobs. If you are going to have the same answers pretty much all the time (no judging), we recommend you check Prepopulate future jobs with the selections shown above."

Step 4: Add Hiring Team

Next you'll be asked to add your hiring team for this job. Add everyone who will be involved with this hire, including recruiters, the hiring manager, HR professionals and everyone who will be interviewing candidates.

Make sure to set the Candidate Alerts and Note Alerts for each hiring team member — this determines who is sent emails when candidates apply and when notes for a particular candidate are created.

If someone you need to include on the hiring team is not shown in the Users drop down, select "Add User" to add them to your account. They'll show up your the list immediately. JobScore doesn't charge per user, so add as many people as you need.

You can review and edit what you’ve created on the next page. It might look something like this:

Finally, you'll need to post the job, share it with your network as well as prompt your co-workers to as well. Click on these links to monitor, share, and keep track of your job post:

  1. Post to job boards
  2. Share the job with your company and social networks
  3. Review Recommended Candidates from the JobScore Network
  4. Add referrals and direct sourced candidates

Pro Tips: Considerations When Adding Jobs

  • If you want to post a job immediately to your corporate careers site, then set its status to Open and check the Publish box when adding it. Posting to job boards is done separately, not automatically. If you want to delay posting the job, then select On Hold as the status. Go this route if you're having additional people review the job or you're waiting to post all entered jobs simultaneously.

  • If you're adding many similar jobs, consider making copies of an existing job. You can make a few tweaks instead of going through the entire process. In JobScore, this is called cloning jobs (Ooh! Science!).

  • Complete everything on the Job Details page. Your data there helps JobScore match candidates to jobs.

  • Save yourself some time: set the default information for your jobs. The information — including Job Details, Job Description, Benefits, and Referral Reward — can pre-populate when you add new jobs. Create a template to ensure that all of your jobs have the same look and feel, consistent messaging, and represent your company's brand effectively.

  • Hiring is a team effort, and we make it easy to get everyone involved. First, assign your colleagues to the Hiring Team for jobs. When selected as a member of the Hiring Team, your hiring managers, interviewers, and recruiters can receive notifications about candidate interest. You'll need to add your co-workers as JobScore users before you can add them as team members. When assigning colleagues to the Hiring Team, make sure to select their role and frequency for how often they will be alerted when candidates apply (immediate or weekly digest).

  • To get the most value out of candidate matching, one of JobScore's sweet spots, we encourage you to tune your scoring criteria.

Get everybody ready to toast to your fine work, because you're almost ready to go live!
