Use the Personio Career Page

If you would like to allow candidates to apply online but do not have your own career page, you can use the predefined Personio career page via youraccount.jobs.personio.de or youraccount.jobs.personio.com, which you can adapt to your corporate design.

On this page, you can publish positions that you have saved in your Personio account with just one click. When candidates apply for a position on your Personio career page, they will be presented with an application form where they need to add their data and all relevant application documents. All applications from the Personio career page will then automatically create a candidate profile with all the provided data in Personio, and will be assigned to the corresponding position.

Tip you can customize your Personio career page to your corporate design. Find out more about the available options in our article Step 5: Configure the Personio Career Page.

 

Use your own Corporate Career Page

If you have a corporate career page, you can easily connect it to your Personio career page or directly with your Personio account. There are three ways to transmit candidate data to your Personio account:

 

1. Integrate the Personio Career Page into your corporate Career Page via iframe

If you use the Personio career page, you can also fully embed it into your own website. Through an iframe, you can display the Personio career page in a defined area of your website and thus integrate it seamlessly into your corporate design.

When candidates apply for a position on your corporate career page, they will be presented with an application form from Personio where they need to add their data and all relevant application documents. As a result, the candidate stays on your website throughout the application process, and all provided data and documents will be sent to Personio, creating a candidate profile that gets assigned to the corresponding position.

2. Integrate the Personio Career Page into your own Website via XML

You can transfer the positions that you manage in Personio to your own website. The transfer takes place automatically once the Personio XML interface has been set up. This way you can display your open positions on your website and have more freedom on design and transferred information.

Tip you only have to enter your data once, thus saving yourself further website maintenance.

To apply, candidates will be forwarded to the Personio career page to fill in an application form with their data and all relevant application documents. All applications received via the form will then automatically create a candidate profile with the provided data in Personio, and will be assigned to the corresponding position.

3. Transmit Candidate Data via API

If you only want to use your own corporate career page without activating the Personio career page, you can transmit your candidate data to your Personio account via API. This allows you to present your positions and the application form according to your corporate design. The positions you create in Personio will be automatically transferred via the XML interface to your own corporate career page.

When candidates apply for a position, you must provide them with an application form where they can add their data and all relevant application documents. This way, applications will automatically create a candidate profile with the provided data in Personio, and will be assigned to the corresponding position.

Note the Personio Recruiting API will only accept candidates for positions published in Personio.

For more information on how to integrate the Personio career page via API, have a look at our article The Personio Recruiting API.

Note make sure that you have sufficient internal development capabilities to set up the XML interface and API required to use your own career page. Our Developer Hub contains comprehensive documentation of all parameters and endpoints, as well as informative technical tutorials.
