What Companies Should Know About GetroJobs

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 job openings, you have the most reliable source of information for your company. Read more below to learn how to optimize your Getro company profile.


How jobs get posted on Getro job boards


Getro extracts job postings from the website on which 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's 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 company careers page. We often find that companies overlook taking jobs down from those sites.


 Take action

If you notice jobs pointing to an incorrect source, contact the network admin of the job board your company is part of to ask for permissions to manage your company profile. Then you can 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 matters


Most often the most reliable place for job 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 job posting sites, such as LinkedIn, Indeed, etc... Getro updates from those sites well (although not as reliably as from careers pages). However, we've 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.


 Take action

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 matters


To ensure daily refreshes of job openings, Getro relies on jobs posted according to the job posting industry standards (used by ATS and other job posting platforms). 


Industry-standard job postings recommended HTML structure is available at schema.org/JobPosting, or check out Google's explanation.


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 through the Getro platform, using our job posting feature. That way your jobs stay up-to-date on the job board.


Occasionally, we see companies reuse the same web page URL for different job postings (eg. the same job title, but posted a year or two apart). This practice, while seemingly effective, negatively impacts the job board analytics the network professional relies on to monitor job seekers' traffic, so be sure to give each job its own unique URL.

Structure job postings following job posting industry standards, which includes one unique URL per job
