Note for New Client Portals Created After May '19 Release: New Recruiting clients whose portals were created after the May '19 release will only be able to create Mobile Friendly Application Workflows and Career Sites. The Standard career site experience for such clients was deprecated as part of the May '19 release.
Standard career sites enable you to create a general career site that you can post jobs to but that has more limited mobile capabilities. Applicants will not be able to complete some parts of the application using a mobile device.
On the Career Site Settings page for standard career sites, you can configure settings such as the header image, header color, LinkedIn application settings, and Facebook connection settings. You can preview the career site and launch the career site editor from this page, as well.
To create a career site, go to. Then click the link.

Career Site Language Settings
This section only displays for portals with multiple languages enabled.
This section allows administrators to select the languages in which applicants can view the career site. In the Career Site Language(s) field, you can check the Select All option to select all available languages, or check the individual boxes for the languages you would like to include. The languages that are available to select are the languages enabled for the portal.
When applicants view the career site, they can select the language from the language drop-down. The career site will then update to display in the selected language.
Note: The default language cannot be deselected from the Career Site Language(s) field.
When unchecking a language that already has translated text in the Career Site General Settings section, a confirmation pop-up opens to indicate that the language contains translated information. Selectingin the pop-up deletes any existing translated text in the career site settings for the deleted language.
When including multiple languages for a career site, it is a best practice to select the Display Field option in the Selected Search Fields section for all search criteria that you are including on the Search Jobs widget. This ensures that applicants have search features available to find jobs in other languages.
Job requisitions that are not translated into the applicant's preferred language that they select on the career site will see the translatable values in the default language of the requisition. The application will not display the translatable values in the applicant's preferred language.
Note: System fields on the application, such as the field names on the Upload Attachments section of the application, display in the language the applicant selects on their My Profile page in the career site.

Select the language from the drop-down for the header/footer. The languages that display in the drop-down are the languages selected in the Career Site Language(s) field in the Career Site Language Settings section.

Enter a meta page title, up to 50 characters. The title can be translated into the languages available for the portal by selecting a different language in the Language field and entering the translated meta page title in the field. When applicants search for the job in search engines, the search results will display the job in the applicant's language, if available.
Enter a meta page description, up to 150 characters.

The Enable Mobile Site option was retired as part of the October '18 release.
As part of the August '19 release, this option is deprecated for all qualifying career sites. A qualifying career site is a Standard career site that has the Enable Mobile Site option checked. This is being done because all action items that were supported in the old mobile optimized experience are supported in the mobile-friendly experience. In addition, performance has been enhanced, and new features are supported that were once not supported for mobile users, such as resume parsing, Apply with LinkedIn, and localization. Existing Standard career sites will no longer use the old mobile optimized experience so that all candidates can benefit from the new experience. If a mobile-friendly qualifying workflow is published to a Standard career site, the career site will display in the Standard format, but the application workflow will automatically become mobile-friendly. A qualifying application workflow is one that does not contain Forms, Training, or Assessment action items.
The function of the Enable Mobile Site option is to allow a mobile optimized career site to display for applicants accessing the career site from a mobile device.
For more information about the deprecation of the Standard career site experience, see the Frequently Asked Questions - Deprecate Standard Experience page in Online Help.
This option enables administrators to select a header image for the site. The images that are available in the Mobile Image drop-down are the images defined in Corporate Preferences.
This option enables administrators to define the color that fills the areas that the header image does not fill. Enter a hex value for the color or select a color by clicking thebutton.

Once this occurs, the Allow Apply with LinkedIn /Sign-In option will no longer be available for standard career sites, and no LinkedIn options will be available to candidates when applying to a job on a standard career site. Clients who have a LinkedIn Recruiter contract, or a LinkedIn corporate account with active LinkedIn job slots, can leverage the new Apply with LinkedIn (With Apply Starters). The new Apply with LinkedIn (With Apply Starters) will only be supported on mobile friendly workflows. See Apply with LinkedIn (with Apply Starters) - Overview.
