The Do’s and Don’ts of Job Postings

Staffing Online strives for being the #1 employment site, with that in mind we have a lot of responsibilities in ensuring both employers and career seekers are afforded a good experience. Staffing Online’s dedication in providing quality service for career seekers is vital to the hiring results of potential employers. At Staffing Online, we remain committed to the safety, privacy and a productive user experience during any career seeking activities. In order to ensure these positive services, Staffing Online requires each job posting qualify as both accessible and transparent at all times.

The Do’s and Don’ts for Staffing Online Job Listings:

  • Don’t use offensive content. Would a reasonable person consider any aspect of your listing inappropriate or offensive? If so, the visibility of your job may be affected.
  • Specifics, not clickbait. Make your job title the name of the particular job as it might appear on a business card, with no extra information or eye-catching gimmicks. Job descriptions should include the particulars a qualified candidate would search as well as other details you think are important.
  • Don’t use job content that isn’t yours. Each job that appears on Staffing Online must be offered by an authorized representative of the company seeking to fill a position.
  • Offer a real job. Staffing Online is a search engine for jobs. Non-job content—including spam, scams and other offers—will not be shown to job seekers.
  • Don’t try to game the system. Like other search engines, Staffing Online uses algorithms to provide the freshest, most relevant content in response to searches. Listings that attempt to exploit these principles by reposting roles within a short timeframe or posting roles in more locations than the job is offered for increased visibility will not be accorded the same visibility to our users as jobs which we feel are more relevant.
  • Tell the truth. Career seekers deserve to know the true details of your job, including its location, duties and whether the job is being offered by the hiring company or by a recruiter on the company’s behalf.
  • Use Staffing Online to fill a job, not a pipeline. Staffing Online is an invaluable tool for recruiters, but each posting should represent a real and currently available job. Attracting applicants for future possible matching opportunities is not an honest use of a posting.
  • Don’t discriminate. Jobs on Staffing Online must be made available to qualified candidates regardless of age, race, gender and sexual orientation. There may be specific exemptions for some kind of jobs, but you will need to show you fall into those exemptions.
  • Pay reliably and fairly. Jobs that people find on Staffing Online should have hourly or salaried wages and may not cost the candidate anything to apply, interview and begin work.
  • Make application accessible and transparent. Career seekers should not have to navigate through complicated steps to begin the application process.
  • Treat candidates with respect. Applicants should hear back from companies to which they apply and if they are invited to interview, they should be updated on their status in/at reasonable intervals. Most importantly, the privacy of the career seeker is paramount and information you get in the application process should be safeguarded.

These guidelines are meant to help companies understand what kind of jobs can appear in career seeker results. Please note: We cannot give every reason why a job or company may be removed, and, as stated in our terms of service, we always retail the right to under such a removal if we feel it is in our interest or our users’ interest.
