Advertising on External Job Portals via Multiposting


This article explains how you can use multiposting to promote job vacancies simultaneously on several external job portals and how you can manage your postings. The posting and payment process takes place directly in Personio to save valuable time and minimize your administrative work.

Read this article to find out what you need to do before you can use multiposting.


Promoting Jobs via Multiposting

Once you have added an open position in Personio and all prerequisites for multiposting have been met, you can promote the position on external job portals to attract candidates. To facilitate the easy publishing of your vacancies across different job portals, we work with GoHiring, our multiposting partner. Click here to see an overview of the job portals that are available via Personio. This article explains which information Personio transfers to the external job portals. 

Using the multiposting feature, you can either book portals separately or take advantage of the Job Posting Bundles that are available through Personio. These bundles are cost-saving promoting packages that are tailored to your needs. Please see this article for more details.

If you already have contracts in place with external job portals, click here for details on how to store these in Personio so they can be used with multiposting. 


Posting Bookings

To promote a position on external job portals via multiposting, navigate to Recruiting > View position details > Promote and in the area My postings. Any postings that you may have already booked are displayed here. Now click on Promote to start the multiposting process and to be taken to the list of available job portals. Alternatively, you can get to the job portal overview directly from the Positions view in the Recruiting area by clicking the Promote button. 


Selecting the job portal

The job portals overview offers multiple possibilities for postings from which you can choose the promoting options that best suit your needs. Select at least one option to continue with the booking. You can also select multiple portals at the same time. 


The Suggested job boards at the top are suggested on the basis of the information provided in the job posting. Underneath, you'll find the Free job boards and other paid Premium job boards.

Use filters to search for specific offers for Job Boards by Price, Duration, Cuntry and Target audience

Please note that the system always preselects the country stated in the location entered for the position. You can advertise the position internationally, of course. Before finalizing the posting, select the preferred language with the selection optionPost this position in in the bar at the bottom.


Previewing the posting

Click to select all job portals the advertisement is to be published on, then click on Next. This will take you to a preview of the job posting, where you can review which details Personio will transmit to the job portal. At the top of the preview, you will see information about how your job posting will be displayed on the job portal. Depending on the type of ad selected, the job portal either adopts the design shown in the preview or integrates the details of the posting into its own design. 


Completing the booking

In the preview, click on Proceed to checkout for a final review of your order. In the order overview, the selected job portals, runtime, language and cost are displayed.


If you are using a Job Posting Bundle from Personio or have contracts with job portals in place and stored in Personio, the displayed cost details will also include information on how much of your package has already been used and the savings benefit you receive from using the Job Posting Bundle or existing contract.

To complete the booking, click on Place order


Management and Renewal of Postings

Once you have posted a job ad via the multiposting function, it is shown under the respective Position details under My postings in the Promote tab. This page shows a tile with the following information for each job portal you have posted an ad with:

  • Status of the posting
  • Job portal name
  • Posting runtime


Click on the respective channel to see more detailed information about your posting. You will then see not only the status and runtime of the posting, but also the date of posting and further details about previous postings you have already published for the position on the same job portal. Click on the Renew button to book the selected posting again. This takes you directly to the preview. 


Please note that static job boards (i.e. the free job portals) will not communicate the status of the booked posting to Personio. That means you will need to check the status yourself on the respective provider's website. 


Changing and Canceling Postings

If you would like to edit or cancel an active posting, please contact our multiposting partner GoHiring via this contact form. For further information on changing and canceling requests click here. The rules of the respective job portal will also determine which options you have with regard to cancellation.
