This is the third article in our How To Hire Your Next Employee Series. In today’s post, we will show you how to post to job boards with ApplicantStack.

Before we continue, let’s review where we are in the series:

You’ve created your job description and your prescreening is in place. Now it’s time to post to job boards. Posting jobs manually is a long, tedious process.

Challenges of Posting Jobs

  • Which job boards and career sites should I post to?
  • How can I speed up the process of posting to each job board?
  • How can I manage the logins and passwords for multiple sites?
  • How can I track applications from multiple job boards?
  • How can I keep track of applicants in the hiring process?

ApplicantStack Makes Job Posting Easy

ApplicantStack makes it easy to manage this step in the hiring process. You can post to all of your favorite job boards at once. This includes your public and internal job boards.

ApplicantStack Manages Your Logins

ApplicantStack manages your logins so you don’t have to log in and out every time. Single sign-on is a huge timesaver when posting jobs to job boards.

Which Job Boards Does ApplicantStack Post To?

  • Indeed
  • Glassdoor
  • Google for Jobs
  • Juju
  • LinkedIn Limited Postings
  • CareerBuilder
  • Monster
  • Dice
  • ZipRecruiter
  • Niche sites

Note that the paid sites are enabled by inputting your account information. ApplicantStack will also post to your company career page and social media sites as well.

ApplicantStack Supports Niche Sites and Emailed Job Postings

In ApplicantStack, manual posting links allow you to post jobs to niche sites like Craigslist. You can also email a job posting from the system.

ApplicantStack Supports Internal Recruiting

Internal recruiting provides many hiring benefits. In ApplicantStack, you can set the job to post internally first. Choose the number of days. After this period, the job will post to the 3rd party job boards you’ve chosen.

Multiple Application Options

When someone visits your job posting, they can apply, refer a friend or apply using their LinkedIn profile.

ApplicantStack Makes It Easy For Applicants To Upload Resumes

Candidates are prompted to upload their resume via a local drive, Google Drive, or Dropbox. Many job candidates will view your posting on a mobile device. The resume upload options make ApplicantStack mobile-friendly. Mobile support is an important element in the ideal applicant journey.

ApplicantStack Pulls Contact Details From Resumes

Contact details are parsed from the resume and input into contact data fields in ApplicantStack. You won’t ever need to manually input contact information again.

Filter Candidates With Custom Questionnaires

When the candidate applies, they are presented with a custom questionnaire associated with the job posting. The responses are automatically scored using your scoring rules.

Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Questions

If you choose, ApplicantStack presents EEOC questions. Answers remain private and only accessible via a summary report and not by the individual candidate.

ApplicantStack Notifies Both The Candidate And The Hiring Team

Upon application, the candidate will receive an email acknowledging receipt of the application. The software also notifies the internal team that a new candidate is ready for review.

How Does ApplicantStack Simplify Job Posting?

  1. Post to chosen job boards at the same time
  2. Organic and paid postings
  3. Use a single sign-on for multiple job board accounts
  4. Applications from all sites flow into ApplicantStack for centralized management
  5. Automated applicant notifications
  6. Automated hiring team notifications
  7. The system parses candidate contact information from the application—no manual data entry
  8. Custom questionnaires filter applications immediately
  9. Supports internal recruiting

How Does ApplicantStack Create an Ideal Applicant Journey?

If you want to find quality employees, you need to create an ideal applicant journey. ApplicantStack creates a positive experience for the candidate throughout the recruiting process.

  1. Applicants can upload resumes from their local drive, Google Drive, or Dropbox
  2. Applicants can apply from their mobile device
