Creating an External Job Ad - Seek

There are 4 ways in which you can advertise a job position:

  1. Internally within your World Manager Platform, which only appears to targeted active accounts within your platform
  2. Externally on a company website
  3. Externally with Seek 
  4. Externally with Broadbean

With all 4 advertising types, you can choose to advertise to 1 or to all.

In this article, we are going to show you how to advertise externally with Seek

Note: Before being able to post job ads onto Seek, the Seek integration must be enabled on your platform. For more information, please refer to the Setting up your Seek Integration article.
