How to create a job post on Rooster : A step by step guide

Hey there! 👋🏾

If you’re here, you’re probably thinking about creating your first job post on Rooster.

To help you get started, we compiled this comprehensive guide. 

It’s a super easy five step process designed to help you find the best candidates for your company.

Let’s get right to it!

Step 01 – Sign in to your account 

If you already have an account, all you have to do is: 

  1. Go to and enter your email and password
  2. Click on ‘Sign In’

If you don’t already have an account, you’ll need to create one before you move on to this step. 

You can do this by clicking on the ‘Create new account’ button. 

If you already have an account, enter your email and password to continue. 

Step 02 – Select ‘Create New Job Opening’

Once you sign into your account, the very first page you’ll see is your ‘Jobs’ page.

Here, you’ll see any active or inactive job posts that you’ve created in the past as well. 

To create a new job post, click on the ‘Create New Job Opening’ button at the top right corner of your screen. 

Once you click on ‘Create New Job Opening’, you can start creating your job by filling out the necessary details on this page.

Make sure you cover all necessary details:

  1. Job Title – Mention the title of the job. 
  2. Department – This will specify which department the candidate will be working with. 
  3. Employment type – You can specify whether the job is full time, part-time, an internship, on contract basis or if it’s a volunteer position. 
  4. Classification – This will explain the type of work group your applicant will belong to.  
  5. Skills you’re looking for – Specify which skill sets or specializations you’re looking for in an ideal applicant. You can add as many skills as you want to. 
  6. Your office location – You can choose your physical office location from the drop down menu or click on ‘This is a remote/work from home position’ if otherwise. 
  7. Add a job description – Remember to make this as informative as possible. Include key responsibilities of the role and well as specific skills and qualifications you’re looking for in an ideal candidate.  (Your job description also has to be at least 50 words)

An ideal job description will look like this:

Step 03 – Invite Team Members 

Once you’re done filling out your job details, click on the ‘Invite Team Members’ button to start adding your hiring team. 

You’ll be directed to the ‘Team Members’ section of the job creation page.

 There’s two types of people you can add in this section: Hiring Managers and Interviewers. 

1. Hiring Managers 

The hiring manager is the main contact person responsible for this job opening. They make key decisions about the candidates like whether or not they’ll advance to the next level of the hiring process.

If you create the job post, you will automatically be assigned as the hiring manager for this role by default. In case you need to assign another team member for this role, you can manually assign new hiring managers. 

However, only one person can be assigned as a hiring manager at a time. 

They can also communicate with the interviewers on the platform and assign themselves as interviews – this allows them to perform dual roles. 

To assign new hiring managers, you can click on the ‘Assign New Hiring Manager’ button.

All you have to do is search for your team members’ name and click on it. 

2. Interviewers 

The interviewers are responsible for conducting interviews. 

Once an interview has been conducted, the interviewers will submit their individual ratings  and internal notes about a candidate based on their experience with them.

Don’t worry, all your feedback and notes about the candidates and their eligibility will only be visible internally. 

You can assign interviewers to job openings by clicking on the ‘Add Interviewer’ button.

All you have to do is search for your team members’ name and click on it. 

If you haven’t added your team members yet, here’s how you do it:

Click on your company icon at the top right corner of the screen. 

Select ‘team’ from the drop down menu.

Then, click on ‘Invite users’ on the top right corner of your screen.

All you have to do is add your team members’ names, enter their email address and assign them their roles. 

After that, all you have to do is click on the ‘Invite User’ button. 

Once you do that, your team members will get an email invitation. 

Step 04 – Edit your job post 

After you’ve added all your team-mates, you can go ahead and click on the ‘Edit Job Opening’ button in case you need to double-check your job post before you hit ‘publish’. 

This is the final step of the process. However, this is only optional. 

Once you’re done tweaking your job post one last time, make sure that your job is active. 

You can check this by looking for the active/inactive button on the top of your page.

If your job is ‘active’, it means that it will be published on the Rooster job board and your careers page (if you’ve integrated it with Rooster).

If your job is ‘inactive’, it means that it will not be published on the Rooster job board and your careers page. 

Step 05 – Publish your job post

Once you’ve completed all the above steps, you’re basically ready to go.

All that’s left to do is click on ‘Update Job’ and your job post will go live!

Congratulations, you’ve posted your first job on Rooster! Now, you can reach and track all your potential candidates.   

This is what your candidates will see:
