Let’s face it – all hiring managers are looking to boost applicant flow these days. Tailoring your job posting to stand out from the rest can be challenging, especially if you are advertising an entry-level role. Luckily, the promote a job feature allows JobGet employers to promote their job directly from the web app. Once the job is promoted, the employer’s job is featured at the top of the job seeker’s view, helping to drive more traffic to the job posting. The employer can view their budget type and budget amount before proceeding with the transaction, all from the web app.
Once the job posting goes live, there are a few different options when it comes to managing the post. As always, you can choose to continue with a free job and use the platform in its basic state, where you will still be able to source quality candidates and engage with the app as normal.
If you want to drive more applicant traffic to a specific job posting, the promote a job feature can be used. This will result in a larger candidate pool and faster time-to-hire. Employers can customize their budget type and amount to stay within desired spending limits, too. When it comes to budgeting, you can choose to refresh the amount you wish to spend daily or set a total budget that will be spent over time. If you choose the total budget option, the job will be paused when the money runs out. As you explore the budget feature, the estimated number of applicants gets updated. This way, you can predict how much you will need to spend in order to get the candidate volume you want. Once you have decided on a budget, it’s time to complete the transaction!
Once a job is promoted, it is now featured on the JobGet jobseeker network to help you attract the best and brightest talent! And don’t forget – you don’t need to create an entirely new job posting if you are interested in using the promote a job feature! Existing job postings can be promoted at any time in order to boost visibility by clicking the “promote job” button.
If you’d like to make adjustments to the job posting you have promoted, employers have the ability to manage any running promotion. Here, you are able to see how long the promotion has been running, the total applies, and the amount you have spent so far on the campaign.
You are also able to manage the budget amount of a promotion at any time. For adjustments made to the daily budget, the new budget will be reflected the next business day. For the total budget, you must enter an amount higher than the total amount spent to date. Once the budget has been hit, the promoted job will pause.
Employers are also able to change the payment method of choice, or close the promoted job altogether if they have made a successful hire! Remember that you can only use the promote a job feature on the JobGet web app, so be sure to check it out!
You’re probably asking yourself, “what does this feature look like to job seekers?” When a job is promoted, it will appear at the top of the search results for that specific search result with a Featured tag. We reserve the top 2 spots for any promoted jobs, so they will be the first thing job seekers see when engaging with the platform.
We hope this guide allows you to better understand JobGet’s new promote a job feature so that you can increase your applicant pool and make faster, more qualified hires!
