Accessible to Account Admin, Admin, HR Partner, Limited HR Partner, and Recruiter


As part of the Garden and Estate plans, Freshteam allows you to customize your career portal with a lot of options. 


A good career page, which is often the landing page for many candidates is at its basics not just about the delivery of consistent brand message or making it look & feel like one but is more about avoiding the unnecessary signups, the whole process of viewing opportunities, finding out about the company, and applying for a job that’s most relevant to the candidate, all of this to be made simple and efficient. 


Searching for a new job is a time-consuming activity so a great careers page is one that simplifies the whole experience for a prospective applicant. The applicant should be able to easily complete the application on the go from whatever device they are using. 


Setting up your organisations career page with Freshteams is all about creating simplicity, thereby delivering great candidate experience. 


What’s new? 


With the updated careers page your organisation will make delight easy for your candidate. We have included more relevant and robust filters to make it easy for candidates to find the perfect & relevant job for themselves. 

When a candidate lands on any career site, they would want to quickly look at the available jobs that are more suited for them. The two most important aspects of how candidates browse jobs would be by location and department. 

  • Department because most candidates (other than freshers) do have a competency in certain area and would explore jobs under that.  
  • Location because the candidate would have thought of locations, they are open to work keeping in mind all their personal constraints. 

 

Careers page update: 

 

With the updated filters page, you allow your candidates to look out for job that are most relevant to them on the top of the page. Filters include

 

  1. Search 
  2. Department 
  3. Location 
  4. Work type 

 

Below GIF demonstrates the filters in use on the careers site:



Careers page configuration update


For Account admins setting up the career site, we want to make sure they too experience the best, making it easy for them to set up the careers page, nothing too out of the world, but a simple site to set up which matches the look and feel of their company website. 

 

With our new modular design approach, admins can now set-up careers page Layout, Stylesheet, colours & pages with ease. Below GIF walks through the careers page configuration




Setting up the careers page


Career site configuration is divided into six parts, as detailed below:


To do this, go to Settings > Job Publishing > Career Site.


1. Basic Career: Comprise of “Primary Language” & “Career site URL”. Select the preferred language in which you want you career site to be in. 

 

Note: You can create a vanity URL for your careers page. You will have to create a CNAME DNS record in your DNS Zone file to point career.yourcompany.com to yourcomapny.freshteam.com. Your Webmaster or Server administrator should be able to help you set this up correctly - (Please note - you will need to purchase custom SSL from Freshteam ($60/year) to CNAME the career site)

Troubleshooting 

Career site update release notes (For existing customers):


For customers who have customised their careers page through advanced setting options, careers site update (new filters, career site description, banner image changes) will not be reflected with the new release. To view the updated version of the career site, following are the instructions. 


To change banner image, insert the following code:


<div class=“index-banner” {{portal |banner}}></div> needs to be replaced with

{% if {{portal.banner_removed}} != true %}

  <div class=“index-banner” {{portal |banner}}></div>

{% endif %}


For inserting description add this into the right area (recommended between banner image and job listings):


{% if portal.description != “” && portal.description != null %}

  <div class=“content portal-description”>{{portal.description}}</div>

{% endif %}


For customers who have customised their careers page through advanced setting options, to add new filters into their careers site (Department, Work type), the following steps should be followed: 

  1. Go to Settings à Job Publishing à Career Site à Edit appearance 
  2. Copy and save in note your career site settings from all the four sections, i.e., “Colors & fonts”, “Stylesheet”, “Layout” & “Pages” 
  3. Now click on the “Reset to” dropdown between the “preview” and the “save” button and then select “default” 
  4. After selecting “default”, paste the content that was saved back to their respective section and then press “Save and Publish” 
  5. New filters (Department & Work type) will now be reflected in your career site.


Note: For customers who have not made changes to their career site through advanced setting options, the new career site updates will be reflected directly along with the release
