Configuring a job description block

Recruitment Marketing Public


The Job Description block allows you to configure what job or requisition information you would like to display to candidates when they are viewing the details of a particular job on your Recruitment Marketing powered career site.

Recruitment Marketing's innovative job routing functionality allows you to define rules which determine which job template page is shown for a particular job, and the flexibility available to you via the Job Description block means that you can display different job details for different subsets of jobs - such as a particular job family or location.

This block type is only available for use on a:
