Tutorial: Adding a Job

Adding Jobs via Admin

The Add New link, under the Job Listings menu item in admin, will show the Add Job Listing page.


This should look familiar to you if you’ve used WordPress posts and pages before.

Enter the job title and description

First fill out the “job position title” field at the top with the name of the job you are listing. This is the post title and it is the main hyperlink that will appear in the search results.

Next, below that you’ll see a visual editor which you can add the job description in. This is the main content of the job listing.


Set job meta data

Next, look at the Job Listing Data panel below. This is where you enter job and company details for the listing.


The fields include:

  • Job Location – Enter the location of the Job such as “Las Vegas, NV” or “Summerlin, NV” as an example as detailed. Leave blank if the job is a telecommuting position.
  • Application email/URL – Enter the application URL if the job can be applied for via a website, or enter an email address for applicants to send their application to.
  • Company name
  • Company website
  • Company tagline – Tagline should be a short description of the company.


  • Company Twitter – Twitter name, e.g. @company
  • Company Logo – Upload a logo, or enter the logo’s URL here.
  • Position filled? – Leave this box un-checked.
  • Feature this job listing? – Leave this box un-checked.
  • Job Expires – The expiration date for this job. If a date is specified, enter it here. Otherwise, leave it blank.
  • Application closing – The application deadline date for this job. If a deadline is specified, enter it here. Otherwise, leave it blank.

Set category and job type

Finally, in the sidebar you will see: Job Regions, Job Types, Job Tags, and Categories. Please only select one job region and one job type (unless otherwise applicable).



Enter Job Tags as keywords that are relevant to the job, separated by commas. You can enter multiple tags at one time then click “Add” to add them all at once.


Job Categories help the job seeker find by category. Example: if the job is for a sales position, an appropriate Job Category would be “Sales”. To create a new category, click on “+ Add New Job Category” then enter it if you do not see it in the list. If the Job Category is already created, simply click the checkbox next to the appropriate category.

Publish your listing

When you are done, click Publish to make the job listing live.


When published, the job listing’s expiration date will be set based on the default listing duration.

Managing Job types and categories

From the admin menu you will also see links to Job Categories and Job Types. These two sections let you add, edit and delete terms.


These sections work in exactly the same way as Post categories so see Posts Categories Screen for reference.
