How to post a job, what's included in a job posting, how to include or require extra fields on the application--its all here.
Add a position
To add a new position, click the "Post a job" button in the top right corner of the page.
The first step to posting a job is to fill in the job details. The job details include the job title, department, location, employment type, compensation level, and experience.
Tip: Job title, location, and employment type are the only required fields that must be included to post a job.
You can add a new department or location by selecting the "add new" option in the drop-down selector. If your job location is remote, you can add a location with the name "Remote Location".
Tip: The location name is how this location is identified inside eddy. Candidates will not see this name, only city and state.
Tip: A street address is helpful if you would like candidates to see your office location on a map.
Tip: "Internal Notes" are only seen by hiring admins and the hiring manager. The hiring team members who help with interviewing don't see the compensation budget or other notes.
The job description area is where you can really sell the job opportunity to qualified candidates, and also explain the requirements. It's a great place to introduce the company and the job. 👋
The job description can be customized using the rich text editor to create headings, bulleted lists, numbered lists, web links, and other text formats.
The application requirements section gives you options on what form fields you would like to include on the application.
Note that for each selected field you have the choice to make that field "optional" or"required". If you choose "required" then the candidate is not able to apply for the job without including that information. Most fields are set to "optional" by default, however the resume field is set to be "required" by default.
A full view of what form fields can be included on the application is shown in the image below.
Tip: When including "Desired Pay" you can specify a format--hourly, salary, or total comp.
In the custom questions section you can add additional questions for candidates to answer.

Review and Publish
Before you publish the job we'll show a true-to-life preview of exactly what your candidates will see. There are two parts to this:
First is a preview of the job posting (shown below). Here you can review the job details and job description.
Second is a review of the job application (shown below). Here you see the application that the candidate will fill out to apply for the job.
If you notice anything that you'd like to change, the preview window has an edit option that lets you jump back to any part of the job posting to make quick edits.
After your job is posted you'll see a shower of congratulatory confetti rain down. Of course you can control the amount of confetti that falls, the gravitational pull on the confetti, as well as wind direction and confetti colors.
