Configuring Job Description Fields


This article explains how to set up job description fields for your positions and postings in recruiting.


What are Job Description Fields?

Job description fields build the structure of all job descriptions of positions that are published on the Personio career page, your own company career page, or that are promoted on external job boards via the Promote feature. All job description fields must be assigned to one of the four predefined categories Job description, Qualifications, Further information or Contact information. Especially for the promotion on external job boards, this categorization is necessary in order to structure your postings correctly. 


Setting Up Job Description Fields


To add new job description fields, proceed as follows:

  1. Navigate to settings > recruiting > job description and click on Add new job description field.

  2. Enter the name of your job description field and select one of the four categories from the drop-down menu.
  3. Select the new job description field and click on edit to add translations and decide whether the field is Required for posting a position. In this case, it must be filled in order to publish or promote a position.
  4. Move the new job description field between categories via drag-and-drop, if needed. 

We recommend that you map at least one job description field to each category in order to achieve better quality postings on external job boards. For further information on promoting your positions, click here.
