Job Listings FAQs – Creating A Job Listing

Creating a Job Post

1. What kind of jobs can be posted?

We expect to see postings seeking specific services such as accountants, consultants, coaches; full-time, part-time, remote workers, and interns; opportunities for partnerships and collaboration.

2. How do I post a job?

· CLICK JOB POSTINGS

Once you have an account and you’re logged in, select “Post a Job” from the top of your user profile page, or click on JOB POSTINGS at the top of the page and then click “Post a Job.”

A blank form will appear. Write a job posting headline, something like, “Full-time Chef Needed in Upscale NYC Restaurant,” or “Part-time Yoga Instructor Needed on Long Island.”

· PROVIDE CONTACT INFO

Enter the name and email address of the person who will be contacted about this job. This person will receive messages from NYWIB about each person who is interested in the position. This can be somebody besides you, the person creating the job posting. The email address that is entered here is only for NYWIB to use, so that we can forward messages to that person. It will not be visible in the job postings, but the contact name will be visible.

· PROVIDE JOB DETAILS

Enter the business name, job title, description of the job, and location. You also need to select from Full Time, Part Time, Contract Worker, Temporary Worker, or Seasonal Worker.

When everything looks correct, choose “Create Job Posting.”

· CLICK CREATE

When you’ve filled in at least the minimum required fields (those that have red stars) and you’re ready to proceed, click “Create Business Directory Entry.”

If you have completed all the steps correctly, you will receive a confirmation email to verify your registration.

· CHECK THE VERIFICATION EMAIL

If all the information is correct, click the link that reads “click here to verify.” Then you are taken back to the website where you will see a message that explains that your job was added to the job postings. You can click on “JOB POSTINGS” at the top of the screen to see your job. You can also click on “YOUR PROFILE,” find the job posting, and click “View,” which takes you directly to the posting.

3. What if I see errors in the verification email?

If you received the verification email and you see errors, click the link that reads “click here to correct them.” It will take you back to your job listing form. You can change whatever you want.

You have two choices:

1) You can choose “Save Changes,” which means that the system will save your new information, but your listing will not appear yet in the directory. You must go to “Your Profile” and choose “Verify” to make the listing appear in the directory.

2) If you choose “Save Changes and Verify,” your information will be saved and it will appear immediately in the directory.

4. What happens if I don’t get this verification email?

It can sometimes take as much as 15 minutes for the email to arrive. If you still don’t see it, check your spam or bulk or junk folders to see if the email is there.

It may also be that you entered the wrong email address when you created your profile. If you are sure that you have done everything correctly go to YOUR PROFILE to view and edit your profile
