Step-by-step job post creation
First Step: Click the "Post a Job" button
Access the "Hiring" tab and then click the "Post a Job" button located in the top right-hand corner of your screen.
Second Step: Add job details
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.
Third Step: Create a job description
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.
Eddy will automatically store previously used job descriptions as templates. This way, if you find yourself hiring for similar positions often, you do not need to write a new job description every time. Simply click on the "Select a job description" dropdown at the top of the input field, and choose a previously used description. Eddy also provides a job description template if you're unsure how to write a job description. This template can also be found by clicking the "Select a job description" dropdown.
Fourth Step: Specify your application requirements
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.
Tip: When including "Desired Pay" you can specify a format--hourly, salary, or total comp.
Tip: Name, email address, and phone number are always collected and required by default
Fifth Step: Ask custom questions
In the custom questions section, you can add additional questions for candidates to answer. You may choose to add custom questions when you need additional information from applicants that you cannot gather from step four (specifying application requirements). Eddy allows you to ask up to ten custom questions. Please be aware that the more questions you ask, the fewer number of candidates will apply. We recommend only asking for information that is critical to your decision-making process at the application level.
Final Step: Review and publish your job post
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. This preview displays what a candidate will see when reading about the job opportunity.
The 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. You'll notice that all the fields you chose to include from the "Application Requirements" section, as well as the "Custom Questions" display here.
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.
Eddy allows you to publish to your company career page as well as to top job boards with a click of the button. Simply select the places you wish to publish your job, and we'll take care of the rest. Job postings will be live on the selected job boards within 48 hours (and usually much faster than that).
Celebrate with Confetti
Click the publish button at the bottom of the page to send your post out into the world. Once you're done, don't forget to celebrate with confetti! Did we mention it's fully customizable? Have a little fun adjusting the amount of confetti that's falling, the direction of the confetti, and even the level of gravity. Why do this? We prefer to ask, why NOT?
