Additional Information about Posting a Job
  • To show your company's logo on your job post, fully type your company name in the Company field and click your company name from the dropdown list. You can add your company name to our company list if it doesn't appear by creating a company page.
  • By selecting your company name from the dropdown list, your job post will be added to your Company Page. If you don't wish to show your company's name on your posting, you can post it confidentially.
  • Choose an industry that best fits your company from the Industry dropdown list. To choose a second industry, click the plus sign.
  • As you type in the Job Title field, you'll see a list of standard title suggestions. Choosing a title from this list helps qualified candidates find your posting during their job searches.
