You've published your job post – good job! Now it's time to share it with the world.
Google for Jobs
All of your job posts are automatically scanned by Google, which means your job openings will show up in the Google for Jobs search results (for jobs based in countries where Google for Jobs is active). You can read more about Google for Jobs and how to optimize your jobs for Google search in this Help Center article.
You can activate the LinkedIn Limited Listings integration so that LinkedIn can gather your jobs and post them on their job board for you. Read more about this feature in this Help Center article.
Vonq and Indeed
You can generate a general XML feed to share with job boards or other online tools to push your job posts through to them and keep information on your jobs up to date. You can read more about this here.
To get more traffic on your job posts, you can also share the job posts to your social media channels from within Homerun: LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. In this Help Center article, we explain how to do this.
It can be that you'll find one (or more) of your jobs created with Homerun on another job board. This is because those platforms scrape the internet in order to add relevant information to their website. If you don't want them to scrape your jobs, you can reach out to the job board and ask them to stop scraping your pages.
Candidates are not applying – what can I do?
Even if you've shared your jobs on the channels we've mentioned above, it can be that after some time, you still haven't received a single application. We get that this can be quite frustrating. Here are some practical tips:
Share the vacancy in your own network (directly to specific people, or for example, via a LinkedIn update or a Facebook post)
Ask your colleagues to share the vacancy in their own network. Also, don't forget to ask if they already know someone who might fit this role; maybe you can reach out to these people to see if they're open to having a chat
Post the vacancy to some other (niche) job boards
Use Google Adwords to promote your job post in Google's search results
Make sure to optimize your job posts for SEO. For example, you can do this by using keywords in the vacancy texts that you think candidates will search for. It helps to include those keywords in your headings. Another way is to add a 'meta description' and meta 'job title' to a job post via the job settings. This is the description that is visible in Google and LinkedIn, among others. In this article, we explain how to do this.
