Professionals expect the best from us. This is why we manually review all job postings in Get on Board, so we can make sure that only quality jobs are posted. At all times, we reserve the right to reject, request changes or suspend the publication of job offers, even if previously approved.
This is the criteria we check for. Making sure your job meets them will enhance your chances of success while using Get on Board:
💵 Salary must be equal to or above the market
We'll only accept jobs offering salaries on or above market rates, according to the job's seniority, location, skills and technologies required, among other factors. Our system will automatically calculate the minimum salary levels we accept for a given job.
Doubts about the right salary to offer? Reach out to us and we'll be happy to orient you.
🏢 Describe clearly your company and the work environment
Professionals want to know how is it to work in your company: the industry or business it is in, the work environment, location, etc. The more you elaborate, the better. Applicants don't necessarily know your company or have references about you, so things your team might take for granted (such as culture or work environment) need to be explicitly communicated so candidates can get a better idea of the job.
🔧 Describe job functions, not just qualifications
Candidates will want to know what they will be doing when they work in this position. What team(s) would they be part of? Who will their teammates be? What projects would be assigned to them? What the specific responsibilities and functions will be? How will their performance be measured?
Again, just listing skills or experience is not enough, even though some of them might relate to some job functions. As a rule of thumb, be explicit and include as much detail as possible.
🐣 Job functions must match the seniority level specified
Seniority levels (No experience, Junior, Semi-Senior, Senior, and Expert) describe different professional evolution stages. These definitions are relevant since they imply functions, requirements, and compensation that are greatly different. In particular, make sure job functions are according to what a person of that seniority level can do (for instance, it is not acceptable requiring a Junior role to lead a team).
Check out our seniority levels policy to get advice and orientation on the most appropriate level for the position you are looking for.
📝 Mind formatting, spelling and grammar
Take care to craft a job ad with a friendly, respectful and professional language.
Make everything look good. If you paste text from Word or some other document, adjust the format and use the preview. Avoid ABUSING CAPS. Check the right spelling and casing for technology names.
✅ What you demand must match the position
Make sure the qualifications, functions, and experience you are listing match the role you specify in the job title.
Getting the job's title right is key, as it appeals to existing candidates' expectations for the role based on what's generally accepted in the market. As a recruiter, it is your responsibility keeping up to date with those expectations and posting a job that matches them.
☝️ Specify only one position and seniority level per ad
Much of Get on Board's power resides in helping you match your job with professionals, based on categories, requirements, and salary offered. Offering several positions in one ad makes this matching impossible. Make sure each ad corresponds to a specific position.. This is also true for jobs that might be very similar, but have different seniority levels.
📐 Keep demands and expectations in check
Regarding skills and experience, make sure that the distinction between nice-to-haves and must-haves is crystal-clear. It's tempting to make a long list of technologies, but asking for too much will make your job look bad to candidates. And if you ask for more, offer more in return.
We will not accept ads that discriminate arbitrarily based on gender, race, nationality, age or other condition.
Also, we will not accept jobs listing specific countries, schools or workplaces as mandatory. Get on Board is a platform open to anyone, from anywhere, that meets the requirements for a job.
📇 If you are recruiting on behalf of someone else, you must disclose the final workplace
All job ads must identify the workplace where the professional will work, which might not correspond to the company publishing the job offer. If you are recruiting on behalf of a client, you must clearly name the company (describing it or specify the industry is not enough).
If you are giving staffing or outsourcing services to a client (where your company is doing the hiring but the actual workplace is another company), you should indicate the company where the applicant is going to work as well.
🏳️🌈 Use gender-neutral, inclusive language
Get on Board wants tech talent of any gender to feel at home. Double-check your copy so the gender of the applicant is never assumed.
😇 Play by the rules
We go to great lengths to ensure Get on Board only offers quality jobs. We won't tolerate any spamming or email or contact harvesting.
If we request changes to your ad, please do your best to comply. Don't submit the ad back without changes. We check manually every single job.
Misrepresenting the actual job conditions, salary or final employer will not be tolerated.
Also, remember that jobs in Get on Board only get applicants directly through our platform. Avoid including contact info or links to external application forms.
