How can I share jobs on my own website?

Most of the time potential candidates find your website, learn about your company, and want to apply for open positions. It only makes sense to give them a convenient, seamless spot for them to apply, right from your own website!

Using the Jobs Widget to display your jobs on your website gives them this environment. Plus, it's a win for your team - the widget is easy to set up, it takes on the look and feel of your website, and the candidates who apply there will then route directly in to Trakstar Hire.

Setting up the Jobs Widget is incredibly fast - in less than 10 minutes you'll be up and running - displaying jobs on your website. Scroll on to learn more!

Where do I get the code for the Jobs Widget?

Any Super Admin on the account can access the jobs widget code via Settings > Job boards & Publishing > Careers Site.  

  • 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, Danish, Italian, Norwegian, Dutch and Finnish and Arabic.
  • 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, via Settings > Job boards & Publishing > Grouping jobs on widget & hosted site.

Chose how you'd like to sort your jobs, in the dropdown: location, postiion type (full time, part time, contract), or teams.

What are "Teams"?

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" from the dropdown, 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 can enable filtering of jobs by either Location, Team, or both!    To begin, go to Settings > Job boards & Publishing > Grouping jobs on widget & hosted site.

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 a self service openings API.  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. Simply toggle the text entry box on the post or page to "Text" (instead of "Visual") and then paste the code information.

Do I need to do anything when I add or edit jobs?

No. The jobs will update automatically on the Jobs Widget!

Can you give me examples of your widget used in actual websites?

You can see the widget in action on Trakstar Hire's own careers page or on Intelligent Demand's careers page.
