When you first arrive in Wrk, you'll land on a view that shows your active job posts. Initially it will be empty since you have not created a job yet. To start building one, click the "Create new job" link in the top-right of your job list.

After providing a title and clicking "Create job", the job will be created and you'll be taken to the new job's setup screen.

Configuring your job

The Job setup screen is where you'll be able to configure and manage all aspects of this job. There are a lot of options available for configuring the job; we'll run through a quick introduction of each here.

You can access each from the navigation area highlighted in the image above.

Job details

The first section in the Job setup screen is Job details. This form is where you can provide basic information about the job. This includes the job title, job category, employment type, hiring location, and remote-working options.

Job description

Next is the Job description section where you can provide a detailed explanation of the job. Wrk provides a powerful Markdown editor for authoring your job description.

Application form

The Application form section is next. This is where you can specify what fields show on the job's application form and if they are required or not. There is a standard set of fields that you can set as optional or required. Alternatively, you can set them as hidden if you do not want them included.

Below the standard fields, you can also create additional, custom questions.

Document Template

The next section of the Job setup screen is for creating the job's Document template.

The Document template screen within Wrk's Job setup section

In Wrk, every candidate has a hiring document associated them. This document provides a place for information to be recorded about that candidate or the hiring process. When a candidate applies, their hiring document is created as a copy of the job's document template.

Because each candidate's hiring document starts as a copy, the template is a great place for content such as an outline of the hiring process, a list of questions you want to ask, or any additional reference material.

By spending time on this document template, you can create consistency in your hiring process.

Hiring team

The final section in Job setup is Hiring team, where you can control who is assigned to the job post.

In Wrk you can invite other users to join your company. From those users you can select and assign a team to each position you're looking to fill. When you create a job, you are automatically assigned as part of the hiring team.

Previewing your job post

You can preview the job post at any time while configuring your job. To do this, just click the "Preview this job post" link that appears below the Job setup navigation.

This will open a temporary preview of the job post in a new browser tab. Here you can see exactly how the post will appear should you publish it.

This preview will expire after a few minutes, but if you need to revisit it, you can create a new one by clicking the "Preview this job post" link again.

Once you've finished configuring your job post, you're ready for publishing. Publishing a job post makes it available online, ready for prospective candidates to visit, review, and apply.
