Connect With Us Page - Areas of Interest

From the Areas of Interest tab on the Connect With Us page, you can configure the interests that display for applicants when applying for a job via Connect With Us. Each area of interest that you would like to display on the Connect With Us form must be made active in order for any interests appear.

To edit the Areas of Interest for a Connect With Us page, go to Admin > Tools > Recruit > Career Site. Click the Edit Connect With Us option in the Options column. Then, select the Areas of Interest tab.

Note: To configure general settings, click the General tab. To import the Connect With Us settings from another career site, click Import Data.

Interest Bank

The Interest Bank displays the areas of interest that you have created. You can activate and inactivate areas of interest and create/delete interests.

The Interest Bank is the same for all the career sites. You can activate/deactivate each interest on each career site if you want to customize the interest list for a particular career site.

When applicants view the areas of interest on the career site, the list displays in alphabetical order.

Add Areas of Interest

At least one area of interest must be added to the Interest Bank section of this page and made active in order for interests to display on the Connect With Us form.

To add interests:

  1. Enter an interest in Interest Name field, up to 50 characters.
  2. Click Add.

Activate/Inactivate Interests

Areas of interest are inactive by default. To activate an area of interest, check the box in the Active column.

To inactivate an area of interest, deselect the box in the Active column. Inactive areas of interest do not display on the Connect With Us form for applicants. If the area of interest has been selected by an applicant in the career site, the interest remains visible when viewing the applicant's areas of interest.

Delete Interests

To delete an area of interest, click the Delete button to the right of the interest. This opens a confirmation pop-up. Click Confirm to delete the area of interest. This removes it from the Interest Bank and across all career sites. The interest will no longer be available in Candidate Search Query, and will also be removed for the applicant from their Applicant Profile page.
