Tips for employers

  • Keep your company profile up to date. This information is used along with your job listings to provide relevant jobs listings on search engines.
  • When submitting job listings try to fill in all the optional fields. This information is used in the schema markup for your job listings to provide relevant job listings on search engines.
  • One location per job listings. Filling the ‘City’ or ‘Territory’ fields with multiple locations like ‘Yellowknife/Norman Wells/ Remote’ will create invalid markup and will make your listings less visible to people searching for listings in your location and prevent your job from being sent to those who subscribed to job alerts for those locations.
  • Share job listings on social media with our easy to use links for additional reach.
  • Hosting a recruitment event? Be sure to submit your event on Events North and consider an ad placement on Jobs North prior to the event.
  • Add coworkers who can administer your company profile and add jobs on behalf of the company.
  • Text formatting: Header tags above h4 are changed to h4 and empty spaces are stripped from text for SEO and consistent formatting.
  • Job titles must only contain the title of the job for the position the candidate is applying to. Do not include job descriptions or details in the title of the Job. Doing so will make it more difficult for job seekers looking for a particular position. Admin may edit job titles to comply with this standard.
  • Emails: Avoid putting email addresses in the job description because it is more likely to get harvested by spammers.
  • If providing proof of a job posting is important for your record-keeping do it when the job is published, expired jobs cannot be viewed after they expire.
  • Use approved job titles from the National Occupational Classification (NOC)
