Stop spending long hours on recruitment, let GrabJobs automation work for you!

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

Metaphorically speaking, let’s say we’re in a carpark. There is 1 parking slot available. This means that at any point, there can only be 1 car parked at the slot. It could be my car at 12pm, when I leave, it could be yours at 2pm, afterwards it could be my team member’s car at 4pm, then it could be your team member’s car at 6pm. All parked at different times.

Now, you’re not exactly trying to find a parking spot, but rather to hire talents applying to your jobs.

Let’s say you post Job A in Job Slot 1. Once you managed to hire for Job A, you can Close the job. Now, Job Slot 1 is empty because you have closed Job A. You can then post Job B in Job Slot 1

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

2. Where are my Jobs going to be posted ?

Have you heard about Multichannel posting?

3. How to Post Jobs ?

3.1. Job Details

First of all, you’ll start by editing your Job Details. They are essential to reference, 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.

Job Function 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 to 3 job functions for each job.

Job Title Type corresponds to the closest role matching your Job Title. It doesn’t have to be exactly the same, as it will simply generate a templated set of interview questions to screen candidates as they apply. Those questions will also help to understand your requirements for the jobs and contribute to match you with candidates that could be a great fit for the role. You’ll be able to edit this templated set of question on the next step of the job posting, under Job Automation.

Brand 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 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!

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 you’re looking for and advertise the benefits offered for the position.

3.3. Advanced Options

Input your Email address to receive new applicants notifications. You can input several email addresses if you’d like multiple people to be informed about incoming applications. You can also leave this part blank if you prefer not to be notified.

Input your phone number if you’d like to receive alerts by SMS about last minute changes to your calendar. To reduce the inconvenience of no-shows, we notify you in real time about candidates requesting to reschedule or cancel scheduled interviews.

Over time, as more jobs are posted on the platform, your job will eventually be pushed down the search list. You may want to Auto-Repost your advertisement to the top weekly if you’re perpetually hiring for the same position.

Set your Job as Private in case you don’t want it to appear in search results. Private jobs can only be accessed via a direct link. They are particularly useful for your internal recruitment, your career fairs events or your referral programs.

This last step is dedicated to the customization of your Interview Chatbot and the automation of the next screening and interview scheduling steps of your recruitment process. It is designed to engage and screen many candidates at once, 24/7 as they apply.
