Using directories, you can set up a Job or Internship Board to list all open positions and make the application process easier. The Job or Internship board directory enables administrators and alumni to post open positions, allowing job seekers to utilize search and filter to apply for their ideal position and that dream job!

1. Create a Job or Internship Directory

On Admin Navigation, go to Directories and click on   to add a new directory.

Enter a directory name and select the template Job Board or Internship Board to get started 👇

2. Manage Form

Under Settings, click on Manage Form to edit or add form fields. This form will collect all the information about the Job Posting (e.g., Industry, Salary, Location, etc.).

3. Publish Criteria

This filter will decide the criteria used for publishing a Job Post. For example - If one of the filters applied is Last Day to Apply - Between Upcoming - 10 Days, it will display all the posts with Last day to apply till the upcoming 10 days. Similarly, multiple publish criteria can be added at the same time.
