Congratulations! Your company is now featured on one of Getro’s automated job boards.
Let’s make sure your company is represented at its best so you get great traffic to your job openings.
As the closest to your company information and latest jobs openings, you have the most reliable source of information for your company. It’s essential you understand….
How jobs get posted on Getro job boards
Getro extracts jobs from the site that companies post their jobs. In other words, the job source we have on file is the main source of truth for the jobs that show up automatically on the job board.
So where did we get your job source URL? The network professional who invested in a job board to make your company jobs more visible to their community did her/his/their best at informing Getro of the most likely place you are posting jobs but they may not be aware of your most reliable source. Sometimes they see your jobs on job posting sites such as LinkedIn, Monster, etc.. but did not realize you only keep your latest postings fresh on your careers page. We often find that companies overlook taking jobs down from those sites.
ACTION: Update Getro with the job source URL where your company posts its jobs reliably and assure that source is always up-to-date.
Where you post your jobs matter
Most often the most reliable place for jobs postings is a page on the actual company website. Likely a Careers page, a “Work for Us”, or “Join our Team” page.
Some companies may not have a careers page yet and post their jobs on one of the many jobs posting sites, such as Monster, Indeed, etc... Getro updates from those sites well. However we found that once a company puts up a jobs page on their website, they may forget to take down the jobs from the jobs posting site (the Monster, Indeed, etc…), which can result in duplicate postings on the job board. Getro is working on technology to easily detect those changes but it is best to proactively let us know.
ACTION: DO tell Getro when you change where you post your jobs. This includes adopting an Application Tracking Systems or switching to a different one.
How you post your jobs matter
To ensure daily refreshes of job openings, Getro relies on jobs posted according to the job posting industry standard. All ATS use such standards.
If your company is not currently using an ATS, we highly recommend you invest in one. If your web team manually posts jobs on a web page, make sure they are aware of those standards.
If you have no one with HTML coding skills, we recommend you post your jobs directly in the Getro platform, using our manual job posting feature. That way your jobs stay up-to-date on the job board.
We see companies reuse the same web page for different jobs. This practice, while seemingly effective, negatively impacts the job board analytics the network professional relies on to monitor job seekers traffic. Please give each job its own unique URL.
ACTION: DO post jobs following the jobs posting industry standard, one unique URL per job
