Managing Jobs

ContentActivator makes it easy to post jobs on your site. Each job gets an individual post, similar to a blog post. All jobs get posted to a job board page. Additionally, you may choose to display a specific list of jobs on any page of your site using a Page List block.

Setting Up a Job Board

Step 1: Access Jobs Settings
Click on the Jobs section within Site Settings
Enter Asset Title
Step 2: Add Job and Description
You can change this optional text at any time. This will be the title and main description for your job board page.
Enter Asset Title
Step 3: Add Job Categories
Adding categories is helpful, particularly when your company has many job posts or departments. Categories allow you to separate jobs into logical groupings. You can always add or rename categories at a later time. In addition, adding categories to your jobs will allow you to create specific lists of jobs that you may want to display on one page together.

Creating an Individual Job Post

Step 1: Create A New Job Page
From the Pages screen, click the Add New Page button. Then select the Job page type.
Enter Asset Title
Step 2: Add Job Page Details
On your new Job page, there are a number of details to add to your page.
  • Featured Image - This image shows on the job post promotions and within the individual job post.
  • Date - Displays a job post date. 
  • Page Title - Creates a page title and a variation of it for the page URL (i.e. my-page-title).
  • Post Summary - The Post Summary will help your site visitors get a better idea of what your post is about. It will display in the main Job index page and anywhere you showcase your job posts using a Pages Block.
  • Page Body - The page body is where you'll enter the majority of your job post.
Enter Asset Title
Step 3: Update Page Properties
Page Properties will help you organize your job more effectively.
  • Meta Keywords - Meta Keywords can help users to identify the contents of your site within search engines.
  • Categories - Categories help organize your posts into similar groupings. This helps your site visitors to more easily locate content they might be interested in.
  • Tags - Tags offer a very granular way to organize popular terms in your job post. These are typically terms that are much more specific than job categories.

Step 4: Enhance Your Job Post
Want to have a more robust job post? In addition to the standard Page Body field (as seen in step 2), you can add as many blocks to your job post to enhance interactivity.

Creating a Jobs List

Creating an jobs list is a great way to show an overview of jobs available. Please note that this tutorial makes the assumption that you have already added individual job posts within ContentActivator.
Step 1: Locate or Create a Page Where You Would Like to Display A List of Jobs
Select desired page within the Pages section or create a new page if you would like a dedicated jobs listing page
