How do I post my job to one of your other local job board sites?

If you click the drop down, you will see several of our other regional job boards that you can select - this list contains sites that you have posted to before (if applicable) and/or the closest geographical sites. Don't see the site you are looking to post to in this list? Click on "More sites..." at the bottom of the list to be brought to our site search modual. Here you can search through all of our sites to select the one that you want to post to.
How do I post my job to multiple sites?
Begin by posting your job on your primary site by completing Steps 1 and 2. On Step 3, titled "Maximize Applicants", click on the blue text that reads "Show Additional Regions". This will display a list of other sites that you have posted to before (if applicable) and/or the closest geographical sites. If you do not see the site you are trying to post to, you can keep expanding this list until all of our local job board sites are displayed by clicking "Show Additional Regions".

How do I add an email address or change the email address where applicant resumes are to be sent?
On Step 1, under "Application Options", then "Application Settings", select "Accept applications on this website. (recommended)". When this is selected, applicant resumes will be emailed to the primary email address on the account by default. When you complete the job posting form, you will get to a confirmation page that also contains an orange button that reads, "Update notification settings". Clicking that button will allow you to add an email address, or change the email address that is set to receive applicant resumes.

When your job is posted, clicking the blue "Apply Now" button on your posting will direct potential applicants to the URL entered here.

Unable to Receive Emails from Us?
If you are not receiving emails notifying you when there is a new applicant to your job posting, please take the following steps:
- Please check your email account’s “Spam” or “Junk” folders. If the email ended up there, you may be able to right-click on the email, or otherwise find the option to “Mark as good”, “Add sender to Safe Senders List”, “Add sender to white-list” or similar. Doing this will help ensure you receive emails from us in the future.
- Please check that your job posting has been properly set-up to send emails upon submission of a new applicant resume and that your email address has been spelled correctly. On step 1 of the job posting form under "Application Options", then "Application Settings", select "Accept applications on this website. (recommended)". When this is selected, applicant resumes will be emailed to the primary email address on the account by default. To change this, click on the blue envelope icon located next to the job title.
- Please add “firstname.lastname@example.org” to your “Safe Senders List”. How to do this will depend upon the email service provider and/or program that you use. You may want to seek the help of your IT person for this step, though performing a Google search like “Safe Senders List Outlook” or “Safe Senders List Gmail” should yield simple instructions for you to follow on how to accomplish this.
- If you are still unable to receive emails from us, please contact Customer Service by calling (800)365-8630 ext. 1 or emailing email@example.com.
