Product tier: Available for all subscription tiers

Standardized post descriptions allow your organization to configure introductions or conclusions for all job posts on a specific job board. These sections are then automatically added to every job and prospect post on the job board to provide a simple way to simultaneously add a company overview, benefits/perks details, and more to all of your posts.

Note: Standardized post descriptions are available for job posts for all subscription tiers, as well as for prospect posts for organizations on the Expert subscription tier.

Configure standardized post descriptions

Note: Your team might have previously added uniform company information or language to the Post Description section of all job posts manually. If so, be sure to review your existing posts to remove this information before configuring a standardized post description. To learn more about how existing posts are impacted by enabling this feature, click here.

To configure standardized post descriptions, click the Configure icon Configure.png on your navigation bar and then click Job Board on the left.

Standardized post descriptions and Job Board API / Harvest API

Job Board API

There are no changes required for customers and partners using the Job Board API. If a job post contains an introduction and / or conclusion, the entire description (introduction, post description, and conclusion) will be combined and appear in the existing content field.

Harvest API

To prevent breaking any integrations, a change will be required to show the introduction and conclusion in Harvest. By default, the following four endpoints will return only the post description, and will leave out the introduction and conclusion (if they exist):

To obtain the introduction and/or conclusion as well, add the query parameter ?full_content=true to the end of the four endpoints above.

Adding the noted query parameter will return the entire description (introduction, job post, conclusion) in either the content field (for external posts) or the internal_content field (for internal posts).
