Q: I have used HTML within my job posting. Why is spacing strange?
A: While the posting form accepts HTML coding, it was designed for the majority of people who don't know HTML. Because of this the form reads carriage returns as page breaks. If your HTML also includes codes such as <P> or <br> for paragraph and line breaks, you may be seeing more spaces than you intended. The easiest way to fix this is to remove all codes for paragraph and line breaks.
Q: How can I find my job posting?
A: Do a keyword search and type in your company name. This is an easy way to find all jobs your company has posted.
Q: How do I ensure that my job posting appears in a FastTrack section?
A: To ensure that your job posting can be searched through the FastTracks, use the FastTrack search to look at the where you want your posting to appear. Use the same keywords in your job posting that are used for that FastTrack search. Note that many FastTrack searches target job title only. This means that you may have to use those terms within the job title of your posting. You can always describe further within the text of the posting the details of the position.
Our FastTracks are a very useful area for job seekers as it contains the most commonly or typically searched jobs, but it is not the entirety of workopolis.com. Job seekers also use the many search options available on the main search page.
Q: What is the difference between Job Category and Industry?
A: Industry represents the primary focus of your company. Job Category is specific to the position you are trying to fill.
