Step 6: Publishing and Promoting Positions on External Channels


This article explains how to promote positions on the Personio career page and on external channels directly from Personio. 


Publishing on the Personio Career Page

In the Recruiting section, navigate to the Job overview tab and select the position to be advertised. Edit the position via View position details > Edit and fill out the relevant fields. Please note that fields marked with * in the meta information are mandatory for postings via Personio. Then click on Save to save the changes you have made.

When you have filled out all the details, click the Publish button to publish the position on your Personio career page.

If you use the Personio career page, the candidate response is tracked automatically, so no further settings are necessary. All applications received via your Personio career page will have the Personio career page channel added to the corresponding candidate profile by default.

The Professional and Enterprise plans include the provision of an XML interface. If this option is enabled in Settings > Recruiting > Career page, positions with a Published status can also be accessed via the XML feed. Please refer to this article to find out how to integrate positions via the XML interface.


How to Promote Positions on External Job Boards Using the Promote Feature

In the Position details, click on the Promote tab to access an extensive list of external job boards. Use Personio's Promote Feature to promote positions on several job boards in just a few clicks. Click here to see an overview of all job boards currently available via Personio.recruiting-multi-posting-job-portals_en-us.gif

Based on the information stored in the position, you'll see matching job boards shown as Suggested job boards for "name of position" together with relevant details on runtimes and costs. Underneath, you'll find Free job boards and the remaining paid Premium job boardsThis article explains promotion in more detail. 

If you use your own company career page instead of the Personio career page and at the same time also use the Promote feature, enter the correct URL for the position and the associated application form under Position details > Promotion > Career page links

Note that based on the URL for your career page entered under Settings > Recruiting > Career page, you will be shown a suggestion that you can either accept or overwrite.


Tracking Links

If you want to advertise a position on an external job board outside of Personio (without using Personio's Promote feature), you can store a tracking link for the position you have created in Personio with the respective portal provider. The tracking links for the position are stored in your account under Recruiting > Positions > View position details > Promotion > Tracking links. The tracking links can only be created if you first created a channel.

For more information and detailed instructions on how to use tracking links, have a look at this article.
