Where do I get the code for the Jobs Widget?

Any Super Admin on the account can access the jobs widget code by the following steps:

  • Click on the arrow next to your initials to access "Company Settings" in the upper right corner of your account

  • Under "Job Boards and Publishing" you'll find "Careers Site" - click here access the widget code

  • Click on the tab labeled "display jobs on your own careers site"

  • On this page you will see the code for the widget. This is what you need to copy and paste on the backend of your website to display the Jobs Widget

  • It may be handy to send this code along to the person who manages your website. You can send the code and instructions to someone else on the right side of the page. 

Is the Jobs Widget available in any other languages?

Yes! At the bottom of the Jobs Widget code you can select which language you'd like the widget to display in.

  • This will display the set field names (such as "location" and "job description") in a different language.

  • You will need to translate the text in the fields to the language of your choice (such as the actual application questions, and the full job descriptions text).

  • We currently offer the Jobs Widget in English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Danish, Italian, Norwegian, Dutch, Finnish, and Polish.

  • Once you choose a language and click "Save" the widget will automatically update to the new language. You do not need to regenerate or replace the widget code on your website, however, it may take a few minutes for the language changes to display.

Can I organize the jobs on my Jobs Widget in a different order?

Yes! Any Super Admin on the account can set the organization of the jobs. Here are the steps to do so:

  • Click on the arrow next to your initials to access "Company Settings" in the upper right corner of your account

  • Under "Job Boards and Publishing" click on "Grouping Jobs on widget & hosted site"

  • Choose in the dropdown if you'd like to sort the jobs by: location, position type (full time/part time/contract), or teams (more on teams below)

What are "Teams"?

Great question! Teams are categories that you set - they could be departments (such as "Marketing" or "Sales"), or perhaps regions or areas (such as "United States" and "Canada"). It is completely customizable for how you'd like to group the jobs.

  • When you select "Teams," you will be able to manage the team setup from this page as well, simply click "Manage teams"

  • Now click the checkbox beside any openings you'd like to be in your first team, and then click "Move to Team"

  • Type in the name of the team. If you already have an opening in this team, it will find that team as you type for you to add this opening to. If this is a new team, you will type the full team name in here. To save the team selection, click "Save"

  • Afterwards, you'll be able to see the team you selected for your opening

  • Continue these steps until all of your openings are organized to your liking

Can I filter the jobs on my Jobs Widget?

Yes! Any Super Admin on the account can enable filtering of jobs by either Location or Team, or both! Here are the steps to do so:

  • Click on the arrow next to your initials to access "Company Settings" in the upper right corner of your account

  • Under Job Boards & Publishing click on "Grouping Jobs on widget & hosted site"

  • Below the option to Group openings you'll see checkboxes to enable filtering by location and team. Choose one, or both, to allow potential candidates to filter your jobs on your Jobs Widget 
  • Once enabled, you'll see drop-down menus at the top right of your widget:

What if I want to make other customizations? Do you offer a Jobs API?

Below the Jobs Widget there is a dropdown to allow you to make further changes to the code. Clicking this opens the full code for editing.

We also offer an openings API that you can write yourself. You can learn more about that by clicking here. You can also see an example of a company using the API by clicking here.

Do I need to do anything special if my website is hosted on WordPress?

The widget can be added easily to a post or page in Wordpress!
