In case of a connected ATS, job openings are managed within the ATS and automatically transferred to jobpal on a regular time interval.
If there’s no ATS connection, job openings can be managed on the jobpal dashboard by selecting “Job Openings” from the left side menu.
Creating a new job opening
Job openings can be created by clicking on the button in the top right corner:
Job openings have mandatory and optional fields. All the mandatory fields are marked with an asterisk. During the job discovery phase, candidates will be able to narrow down job opportunities via filtering by the mandatory field values.
Also mandatory to provide values either for “Link to job offer page” (typically in case you have a dedicated page for the job opening on your career site) or “Description”. Out of the contents of the “Description” filed a job opening specific page will be created and shown to the candidate when they click through for more information.
If you don’t have job application flow enabled in the chatbot, please provide a value for the “Link to the job offer application page”.
Optionally you can add a set of screening questions to each job opening. These questions will be asked to each applicant to the position.
Pre-set answer options can be added to screening questions to speed up the applications process. If you wish to make the chatbot to accept answers not matching to any of the pre set alternatives, please check the “Allow free text” box.
Manage existing openings
If you move your mouse over a job opening in the list view, two control icons appear on the right side of the row.
Pressing on the “pause” icon will disable the job opening, it won’t be discoverable in the chatbot. Paused job opening can be enabled at any time by clicking on the icon again.
Clicking on the eye icon on the right will take you to the candidate visible job description page. This page can be changed on the job opening edit page.
Clicking anywhere else on a job opening item in the list view will take you to the job opening edit page.
