External Job Board Integrations
Did you know that HR Partner has FREE integrations with five external job boards, including Indeed?
All clients with access to the Recruitment section of HR Partner are eligible to use these integrations at no additional charge!
To enable these Integrations, please go to Recruitment -> Configure -> Integrations. You can choose to turn 'ON' these Integrations using the Toggle Switch and then clicking on Save.
After that, the next Job Listings you create in HR Partner will automatically push to the external job boards you have enabled. Just make sure you have selected an expiration date for each job before posting it within HR Partner. (When posting a new job in HR Partner, it will ask you for a Publish On and Until date. You will want to double-check that they are both filled out).
And that's it! You're done.
How Do These Integrations Work?
In short, these integrations, will "ask" our servers about 3 or 4 times a day for a list of open job listings.
We then provide them with a data dump of all job listings where the customer has enabled the integration with that particular job board, and what they then do is to try and match the company name and location with their own database of past job listings, and display the open jobs on their system.
Having Problems with the Integration?
First, please note that it may take up to 24 hours for your Job Listing to be published on external job boards. If you have just recently posted your Job Listing to your HR Partner Job Board, it will take about 24 hours for the listing to be sent over to the external job board and published externally.
Second, please make sure that you have set up your Job Listing properly. Take a look at our how-to article related to Posting a Job Listing to learn how to post and set up the Job Listing so that every piece of content is categorized correctly and to learn all of the best practices. For example, if you have posted your "job description" content into the Summary portion of the Job Listing instead of the Web Content portion, the Job will not be properly picked up or "scraped" by the external job board, because they are looking for the main portion of the Job Description (which is found in the Web Content area).
Also, these external job boards may have certain standards for the job listings. If there are too many pictures or external HTML links in the job description, they may flag it as possible spam and not list it.
If everything that you have tried is still not working for you, we recommend that you connect with your representative for the external job board in question and communicate the issue to them as well to see if there is an issue that could be preventing the Job Listing to be pushed over externally. Please take note of publishing times.
Please note that it can take up to 24 hours for your listing to be published on external job board websites like those we integrate with.
