Before we get started, let us explain how the concept of “Active Jobs” works on GrabJobs. You don’t need Job credits to post Jobs. Instead, you get Job Slots, also called “Active Jobs”.

GrabJobs’ Active Job Slots are recyclable, which means, during the subscription period, you can post and close as many jobs as you want, as long as you have X number of active jobs at a time.

A job is considered “Active” once you post it, but you can always close it and post a new one on a later date.

2. Where are my Jobs going to be posted?

What is Multi-channel job posting?

Jobs posted on GrabJobs will be published automatically on several other job sites simultaneously. No action required on your end, this is fully integrated with our system. View the full list here

The point of this feature is to move away from the traditional way of manually posting and managing jobs on multiple different platforms, which can be time-consuming and tedious. 


You can also easily share them on other platforms such as social media, your company’s career page, job portals or your physical stores(QR code).

This feature enables you to reach more jobseekers, while streamlining applicants into a central Applicant Tracking System. All candidates, regardless of their application source, will follow a uniform process through your customised Interview Chatbot to apply for your job. Applicants are then scored and ranked based on their scores on the Interview Chatbot.

3. How to Post Jobs?


3.1. Job Details

First of all, you’ll start by editing your Job Details. This part is essential to optimize the search terms and match your job with relevant profiles. 

Job Title should give a clear picture of the role. It is also the key search terms jobseekers will use during their job hunting. It’s best to keep this as generic as possible.

Brand Profile is the Company profile you’ll want to post your job under. You can edit your brand profile to cultivate the employer branding and increase the attractiveness of your jobs. You can also cumulate multiple profiles under one account* if your company is hiring for several brands.

Job Category refers to the function of the role that is relevant to your industry. For example, if you are hiring a Store Manager for a retail store, we recommend to choose the category Retail and Management. You can select up to 3 job functions for each job.

Employment Type gives you the flexibility to classify your job advertisement per category. Are you looking for full-timers, part-timers, trainees or punctual workers for contractual gigs?

Work Location & Region helps placing your job opportunity on a map. Many jobseekers tend to look for job opportunities near them! It contributes to optimize job searching and applicant-matching per localizations. The work location selection doesn’t require an advanced level of granularity. 

3.2. Job Description

Your Job Description is really the most important part of your job posting. It’s the main information that your potential candidates are looking for. It should grab their attention and convince them to submit their application, so you need to get this part right!

To write a great Job Description, it’s highly recommended to include a brief about the role, display the requirements for the role and advertise the benefits offered for the position.
