You can manage the locations where jobs are posted on your job board. Job seekers will only be able to search for jobs in the locations you specify. Even if there aren't always jobs posted in every location, it's helpful for job seekers to know where your company is located.
In this article, you'll learn how to:
1 Add locations
Click your name on the top right of your screen and choose Manage Site. Click the Locations tab. The locations listed here are all of the places where jobs can be posted and searched for on your site. If you post a job in a location that's not on the list, it will be added to the list automatically.
To add a location directly to the list, first select a country in the drop-down. If you selected Canada or the US, type in a city name, select the city when it shows up in the type ahead list, and click the plus icon. If you selected any other country, just enter a city name and click the plus icon. Now this location you've added will show up as an option when you're selecting a location to post a job in. It will also show in the "Where" drop-down when job seekers are searching for a job.
2 Go to Security Profiles
Just like posting jobs, the ability to manage locations is a permission that can be turned on or off. To see this permission, click your name on the top right of your screen and choose Administration. Click Security Profiles in the Administration menu and then click the shield icon for the Job Posters security profile. Select the Job Board category in the Permissions menu. You'll see the "Manage Locations" permission. Users you've added to this security profile have access to the Locations tab we looked at in step 1. They can also choose any location in the world when they're posting a job.
3 Manage who can set locations
If there are users you want to add to this profile, scroll to the top of the Permissions page and click the Membership button. Click the Users tab. Start typing in the name of the user in the "Add" field and select it when it shows up in the drop-down. If you aren't sure of the name, click Advanced Search to filter the users on your site and find the ones you want to add.
4 Add a security profile
Want some users to be able to post jobs but not manage locations? You can add a security profile with the Post Jobs permission turned on but the Manage Locations permission turned off. Here's how to create a new security profile:
- Click Security Profiles in the Administration menu.
- Click the Add Security Profile button on the top right of the page.
- Enter a name like "Manage Locations" and enter a description.
- Close the overlay and click the shield icon for your new profile.
- Select the Post Jobs permission.
- Leave the Manage Locations permission deselected.
- Click Save.
Now you can add users to this profile just like we added users to the Job Posters profile in step 2. Most users won't have permission to post jobs or manage locations. These users can be added to the Regular Users security profile if they aren't already.
