Job Routing

Recruitment Marketing Public

If you decide to host your careers website with PageUp and have integrated Recruitment Marketing with your ATS, you can choose to present a subset of jobs with a dedicated page template. For example, you may want all "Engineering" jobs to be displayed showing a video of the engineering department. You may want all pages for London-based jobs to have pictures of the London office and other city landmarks. You can accomplish this automatically with Job Routing.

This example will illustrate how to use a new page template for all jobs with a department of "Engineering".

Creating a page template

To create a job page template, you will need to copy an existing one and edit it as required. This can be done as follows:

  1. From the side menu, under Content click Web Pages.
  2. Click the Careers Website tab.
  3. Select Page Library from the top menu.
  4. Next to the relevant template, for example: Job Page, click the Duplicate Template icon - all Recruitment Marketing accounts will have at least one.
  5. The new page template is created with the same name but ending with (duplicate), for example Job Page (duplicate).

Editing a page template

  1. Under the Page Library section, click the name of the newly created page template.
  2. Click the Settings button then Settings.
  3. Edit the Title field to rename it to something more clear, for example: Engineering Job Page.
  4. Click the Save button.
  5. You can choose to make content modifications to this page template now or later.
  6. Click the Update button to see the changes.

Creating a job route

  1. From the side menu, under Content click Web Pages.
  2. Click the Careers Website tab.
  3. Under the Job Routing section, click New.
  4. Select an item from the Page Template drop down, for example: Engineering Job Page.
  5. Define the Jobs Criteria, for example: department = "Engineering"
    The jobs criteria input box uses the jobs filtering language. This allows you to define your subset of jobs by city, country, title, department, category or a combination of those.
  6. Click the Save button.
    The job route is now in place. With the example, this means that: any jobs with a department of Engineering will be displayed using the new Engineering Job Page template.

Job criteria tips

Every time a visitor to your careers website requests a page, your job routing rules are evaluated. Having efficient job criteria filters will reduce the time it will take to display jobs on your careers website. 

To filter jobs which have a category of “retail” or “kitchens team” use the In list operator instead of multiple OR clauses, for example:

category ^ ("retail", "kitchens team")

As opposed to:

category="retail" or category="kitchens team"

To filter for all departments that do not contain "Workday" or "Sales", listing them out explicitly is more efficient, for example:

department !^ ("Workday Products", "Workday Finance", "Sales Operations", "Sales Accounts")

As opposed to:

department !~ "Workday" and department !~ "Sales"
