  • modify the job posting (description, fields, etc)
  • add one or more job boards to the broadcast
  • remove one or more job boards from the broadcast

Audience: Recruiters

  1. Choose the update button beside the active job in your list that you want to modify.
  2. Next, you need to review the main information that was previously sent to the Broadcast Engine (and to job boards).  For all descriptions, remember to use minimal HTML tags (such as b, u, i, ul,li)
    1. Job Title: You cannot change this value.  If this is not correct, you must correct the job (either in Talemetry if its not a feed, or from the source system)
    2. External IDYou cannot change this value.  If this is not correct, you must correct the job (either in Talemetry if its not a feed, or from the source system)

    4. Skills: You can review or enter the Skills, which is used on some job boards.
    5. Header: Review the job description header, which is used on some job boards.  If you enter information here, this will be displayed on the job boards before the Job Description.  NOTE: this is limited to 1900 characters.
    6. Footer: You can review and enter the job footer information.  If you enter information here, this will be added at the end of the job description on the job boards.
    7. Job Category: If you want to override the default for the job, please choose the appropriate and "best fit" job category for the job.
    8. Apply URL: This is what a job board will redirect the candidate to when they want to apply for the job.  This is system generated based on the settings on the Job List.  You cannot change this value.
  3. If all of the above information is acceptable, click on "Save and Update Broadcast"
  4. You now interact with the Talemetry Broadcast engine.  If at any time you want to stop before finishing, click on the "X".   First, you must choose what you want to do.  You can modify the job, add or remove job boards.
