How to Specify Job Requirements

If your job requires certain experience, credentials or skills, you can specify these as Job Requirements when posting your job. When applying, applicants will be asked to confirm that they have what you’re looking for and you can sort applicants based on whether they meet this criteria.

 

Here are the details you can require applicants to confirm:

 

Location

By checking a box, you can require that an applicant confirm that their location matches that of the job. This is helpful if you need a candidate who is already familiar with an city or if the metro area includes many, distinct communities.

Education

Specify the level of educational attainment your job requires. When reviewing candidates, you will be able to focus on those who meet that expectation. Conversely, even if a master’s degree is ideal, you can also filter for bachelors degree holders with deep experience.

Experience

Some jobs require previous experience executing important functions. The Job Requirement tools allows you to specify the type of experience you’re looking for, as well as the number of years that would prepare a candidate for your position. Examples of the functions you might require are: writing, bookkeeping, sales, and database management. You can add as many experience fields as your job requires by clicking the “+” button.

Language

If fluency in an additional language would be helpful or necessary in the execution of the role, you can make it a job requirement. Add as many languages as apply by clicking the “+” button below the language field.

Licenses

Depending on your industry and the role for which you’re hiring, you can specify anything from a commercial driver’s license to a board certification. Add required licenses with the “+” button.

If you want to cast a wide net for talent or are offering an entry level position, just check the “no experience required” box and click “continue” to preview your job before posting.
