Careers Page – Every HiringThing subscription plan comes with a careers page where you can showcase all of your active positions. Your HiringThing careers page URL can be found on your dashboard (see screenshot below). Make sure you customize your careers page by uploading your company’s logo and selecting a matching color scheme .

Company Website – In today’s interconnected world where “Google” has become a verb, most applicants are going to spend some time on your company’s website before applying to your job postings. Make sure you’ve got your open positions featured on your company’s career page so you aren’t missing out on job seekers, whether they are active or passive.

We’re always happy to reach out to new job boards to explore partnership opportunities. You can also post directly on any job board you find using your job’s unique joblink so all of your applicants are directed to apply via your HiringThing application, where you can easily manage and communicate with applicants.
