Posting a job is the first step to begin attracting applicants. Your new job will automatically be posted to your Careers Page. Within 24-36 hours, your jobs will be posted to Indeed.com and our other job board partners unless you chose to post your job at a later date. You can immediately post your job to additional sources, such as Craigslist or Facebook. To learn more about posting your job to other job boards, see: How do I post my job to outside sources (such as Craigslist, Facebook or local colleges)?


To post a new job, follow these steps:

1.  Go to your Jobs tab. Select the Post a Job button on the right side of the screen. There is also a Post a Job button on your Dashboard.

8.  If you are using the job post builder, select one of our prewritten position overviews.

11.  Add a compensation range. This is recommended as applicants are more drawn to job postings with compensation information.

12.  Check a box with the minimum required experience (in number of years) that you would like. 

13.  Select any of the prewritten prescreen questions you would like to ask your applicants. These are questions applicants must answer when applying to your job. You can use the applicant's answers and the assigned prescreen score to determine their fit for the position.  Once you've added prescreen questions, you may select which responses will qualify a candidate as Normal, Disqualified, Fast Track or Auto Fast Track. More info: What are State Farm prescreen questions and how do I use them?

*Note: We recommend selecting 5 or fewer prescreen questions. Any more than 5 questions can overwhelm applicants and deter them from applying.

14.  Choose which employees, if any, you would like to benchmark the applicant's score with. More info on having your current employees take assessments so that they can be set as benchmarks: How do I send assessments to myself or my employees?
