This is step 2 of 9 of the implementation module Recruiting.
This article explains how to set up a Personio career page, and customize it to your corporate design.
The Personio career page is a separate website that contains all positions published in your Personio account. Candidates can apply for these positions using an application form. For each incoming application, Personio will then create a candidate profile in your account.
▶︎ To integrate the Personio career page with your own corporate career page via an iframe, a link, or via XML, you will need to follow the below steps to completely set up your Personio career page.
▶︎ If you will transmit candidate data from your own corporate career page to Personio via API, you should only insert the URL of your own corporate career page under Link to own career page, see Step 2: Set up the career page. You can skip the rest of the setup of the Personio career page described in this article.
What are the benefits?
- Easy setup: You can create a career page that fits your corporate design without the need for developer resources.
- Subcompany career pages: If you have subcompanies, you have the option to configure a career page for each subcompany, which will have its own domain name and design. You can then publish positions specifically on the respective subcompany career page. Learn how to create a subcompany career page.
- Increase visibility: If you don't have a career page yet, you can increase the visibility of your open positions by creating your Personio career page.
Step 1: Activate the Personio career page
To use the Personio career page, you need to activate it. This means the following:
- Enable the Personio career page
- Enable Google Jobs search if you want Google to be able to crawl your published positions.
- Activate the XML feed if you want to integrate your positions into your own corporate career page via XML.
Enable the Personio career page
To enable the Personio career page, follow these steps:
- Go to Settings > Recruiting > Recruiting > Career page.
- Under Activations, select your preferred domain name extension (.de or .com). This will mean that you can access your Personio career page at youraccount.jobs.personio.de or youraccount.jobs.personio.com.
- Select Enable Personio career page to activate the Personio career page.
- Then click Apply changes to save.
Enable Google Jobs
To allow the Google search engine to scan all positions on a Personio career page and make them eligible to appear in Google search results and in Google Jobs search, select the Enable Google Jobs checkbox. You can use this type of search engine to increase the visibility of your job postings for potential candidates.
▶︎ The integration of the Google Job search only considers postings that are published directly on the Personio career page.
▶︎ Enabling this option does not guarantee your position will appear in Google Jobs. Personio has no influence on this.
Enable the XML feed
To integrate job positions into your own corporate career page, select the Enable XML feed checkbox. If you enable the XML feed, you can pull all relevant data from the positions published on the Personio career page into your company's custom career page, and data related to your published positions can be accessed under youraccount.jobs.personio.de/xml.
Learn more about XML interfaces.
Step 2: Set up the career page
Continue the setup of your Personio career page under Settings > Recruiting > Recruiting > Career page > Career page settings.
|Link to own career page||
If you are using your own corporate career page and not the Personio career page, enter the URL of your custom career page into this field.
This title will show in the browser tab of your Personio career page.
|Link to imprint||
The Link to imprint can be used to enter the link to the legal notice of your company's website.
|Group positions by||
You can group positions on the Personio career page by one of the options from the dropdown list. You can group by employment type, department, subcompany (if enabled), location, or category.
Click Add filter to create filtering options for positions on your Personio career page. You can activate filters for employment type, department, subcompany (if enabled), location, or category.
If you configure several filters, you will be able to filter positions on the career page on more than one value using dropdown lists.
Step 3: Set up your application form
When candidates want to apply for a position via your Personio career page, they will need to fill in an application form. The application form should request all the information you would like to receive from the candidate. This information will then be used to create a candidate profile in Personio. Follow these steps to create your application form:
- Go to Settings > Recruiting > Recruiting > Career page.
- Under Application form settings > Application form fields, select the candidate attributes that you would like to include in your application form from the list of available options.
- If an attribute should be mandatory for a candidate to fill in, activate the checkbox Required.
▶︎ You can create additional candidate attributes via Settings > Recruiting > Recruiting > Attributes. Learn more about custom candidate attributes.
▶︎ If you want to use gender variables in offers and email templates, you can request the candidate's gender information in the application form.
- Drag and drop the form fields, to decide the order in which they should appear on the form.
- Under Document upload fields, select which types of documents you would like to request or offer to upload. The predefined default categories are CV and Other.
- If a document should be mandatory for a candidate to upload, activate the checkbox Required.
If your position has multiple locations, make sure that the preset attribute Location has been added to your application form, so candidates can specify which location they are applying to.
You are ready to move on to customize and style your Personio career page.
