Optional customizations

Link to Hire jobs from your current careers site

If you would like to maintain your current career site's aesthetic, you can choose to embed a URL into action buttons on your site.

Use the full jobs list:

  1. Sign in to Hire.
  2. Select Jobs and then View Public Jobs.
  3. Copy and paste this URL into any HTML button located on your company website. This is typically a "View open positions" or "Apply now" button.

Use individual published jobs:

  1. Sign in to Hire.
  2. Select Jobs.
  3. Select a published job you would like to post to your careers site.
  4. Select Publishing.
  5. Under "Trackable posts," select your company's career page link (i.e. "Your company career page") to view a preview of the job posting.
  6. Copy and paste the URL of this job posting into each HTML button or link you use for individual job openings. 
Note: You'll need to update the URL every time you update your jobs if you use this option. 

Use the Hire JSON job feed to customize your listings

Hire allows you to customize the layout, filtering, and sorting of your company’s job listings so you can control the way jobs display on your careers page. This requires that your company have the technical resources and knowledge needed to create and deploy web pages that transform the raw data into user-friendly HTML.

Some examples of how you can use this to customize your job list: 

  • Apply the same CSS styles to the jobs list that are used for the rest of the careers site
  • Remove unnecessary content, such as Location, or add additional content, such as Department
  • Instead of grouping job listings by Department, group them by Location (or don't group them at all)
Note: The Hire JSON feed will only give you access to the data associated with your published jobs in Hire, any customizations will have to be executed through your company's website code. If you have any questions regarding customizations to your company's career page with Hire's JSON feed, please consult your website's developer.

Frequently asked questions

Does the Hire code snippet work with Google Sites?

The code snippet only works with the new version of Google Sites. If you're using the classic version, upgrade to the new version to embed the code snippet. 

Why aren't jobs appearing on my careers page after embedding the Hire code snippet?

Check to see if there are any scripts running on your careers page that could be interfering with the Hire script tag. If you have multiple scripts running on the page, make sure they're formatted to avoid breaking the Hire jobs list.
