Create Mobile-Friendly Career Site (Early Adopter)

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.

Mobile-friendly career sites enable job seekers to search for and apply to jobs on desktop or mobile devices. Applicants will have the same experience on your career site regardless of the device they are using. Google Analytics is also supported on mobile-friendly career sites.

Mobile-friendly career sites are created in Career Site Management. This functionality is currently part of an Early Adopter Program.

Job Postings Note: When posting a job requisition to a mobile-friendly career site, the posting can take up to 15 minutes to appear.

To create a mobile-friendly career site, click the Add Mobile-Friendly Career Site option on the Career Site Management page. Note: New Recruiting clients whose portals were created after the May '19 release will not have this option. They will only have the Mobile-Friendly Candidate Experience.

For information about creating mobile-friendly candidate experience application workflows, see the Create Mobile-Friendly Application Workflow (Early Adopter) topic in Online Help.

Career Site Language Settings

As with functionality for standard career sites, you can select the languages in which applicants can view the career site. In the Career Site Language(s) field, you can check Select All 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, the languages that you selected will appear in the language drop-down. The career site will then update to display in the selected language.

Title

Enter a title in the Title field, up to 250 characters. The title displays on the Career Site Management page.

Allow Search Engines to Index Site

The Allow search engines to index site option lets you enable or disable the ability for search engines to index the site. When you allow search engines to index your career site, more candidates can find and apply to your jobs. They can use job search methods they are familiar with and see all of your available jobs that match their skills.

This option is checked by default for newly created mobile-friendly career sites. The option is disabled by default for existing career sites that were created before implementation of this enhancement.

Check the box to enable search engine indexing. Jobs that are posted to this career site via the Job Postings page will be searchable on search engines.

When the option is unchecked, candidates will not be able to find the jobs that are posted to this career site on search engines.

Logo Image for Search Engines

Pre-Step Note: There must at least one image added to Corporate Preferences in order to select a logo for your jobs.

With the Logo Image for Search Engines option, you can add a corporate logo, which will appear right next to each job on the search engine. A logo provides immediate recognition for your brand. This can also help candidates identify your jobs more quickly in the future.

To select a logo:

  1. Click the drop-down to view the list of images. The images that display are the images that were configured in Corporate Preferences.
  2. Select an image from the drop-down.

If you opt not to define a logo, Google will attribute a default logo to the job posting based on the first letter of your organization's name.

This image will also be used when sharing a job on Facebook and LinkedIn. To see how the shared job will appear, you can copy and paste the URL of a job details page into the post inspector for Facebook and LinkedIn:

  • Facebook: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/
  • LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/post-inspector/

Career Site General Settings

Mobile-friendly career sites allow you to configure a header and footer, as well as a background image. Also, a Connect With Us URL is automatically generated.

Edit Layout

In this section, you can add a banner image and banner text. You can also add additional content that will appear above the Filters and Current Openings sections on the career site.

Hide Links and Buttons on Job Details Page
