If you have a job or volunteer opening that you'd like to highlight, you'll want to create a New Job/Volunteer Post.

In turn, this posting will appear on your listing, your content feed, and/or on the content feeds for businesses that are following you using our Local Connections™ feature.

To Get Started...

  1. Go to Jobs & Volunteer Opportunities and click "New Job/Volunteer Opportunity"

  2. Or, click "New Job" under "Manage Job/Volunteer Opportunities"

  3. Or click "New Job/Volunteer Opening" in the quick access bar

Creating Your Job/Volunteer Posting

  1. Image or Media - Every post should have an image (Add Image) or other media (Add Embed) which can be added through the Embed tab (such as a YouTube Embed)

    1. Select Image - If using an image you can either Upload a new image or Browse images already uploaded. It's completely acceptable to reuse images in multiple ways... just make sure the image is relevant.

  2. Job Type - Select whether this is a Paid Job or Volunteer Opportunity.

  3. Title - This is critical for readership, social media engagement, and even SEO. Keep it clear and simple but include enough that people know what it's about and include keywords or phrases that will resonate with your audience.

  4. Main Content/Description - This is the guts of the post. It doesn't have to be long, it can include a lot of bullet points. Use this area to tell a story about the position and about any pertinent details.

  5. Schedule Type - Set whether the position is Full Time, Part Time, Intern, Contract, Freelance, Seasonal, One-Time, Project, Ongoing, or Other.

  6. Compensation Type and Range - Set the Range and Type - Hourly, Project, Salary, Commission, Negotiable, or Unpaid.

  7. Date - Set the Start and End Date of the the job or volunteer opportunity.

  8. Location - You can set the location of the job - it will default to your business's location, but you can adjust this, if needed - including making it virtual.

  9. Advanced - Every post type enables you to customize certain aspects. We recommend you set the OG Image and Description in the advanced settings to improve sharing to social media. Learn more about Advanced Settings for posts here.

  10. Save Draft - You can also save drafts to complete later - if you'd like to schedule publishing a post you can do so in the Advanced setting.
