Managing Candidates

Is there a limit to the number of candidate I can receive?


No, there isn’t. All our plans allows an unlimited number of candidates to apply to each job.

Can candidates contact me directly?


Having your contact information listed is not necessary since we send you a “New Candidate Alert” emails as job seekers apply. OneSavvyDollar does not display any of your contact information unless you explicitly state it in your job title, description, or hiring company information. We strongly advise against adding your contact information to your job because it is a public ad and can be easily found using a basic search engine. This means you may be subject to spam and bombarding phone calls or emails if your contact information is displayed.

How will I know when someone has applied for a job?


Every time someone applies to your job through OneSavvyDollar, you will receive a notification email. The notification is sent to you as soon as a job seeker applies so you can stay updated on your candidates in real time.  Their complete application which includes the candidate’s contact information is saved inside your OneSavvyDollar account for your reference when you log on.

What if I don't get any candidates?


A new job posting can take up to 24 hours to appear on the website after you have posted.  We distribute your job and provide the best advice we can about writing quality job titles and descriptions, but we can’t guarantee applicants. If you still haven’t received any candidates after this time period, feel free to reach out to our or support@onesavvydollar.com for feedback on your job ad or ask us other related questions.

How do I attract more candidates


Job performance is based on a lot of factors and varies depending on industry and location. We encourage clear and concise job descriptions and titles. If you’d like to drive more candidates to your position, you can contact us at support @onesavvydollar.com for a free Job Ad Consultation.

How are visitors and apply clicks calculated?


We track the number of visitors to your job pages hosted on onesavvydollar.com as well as the number of people who click the “Apply” button (if the job uses a custom apply URL to your ATS). In both cases, we use web browser cookies to avoid counting the same user multiple times.

Managing Jobs

What should I include in my job application?


We encourage employers to make their job ads clear and concise. You can easily organize your position’s responsibilities and requirements with bullet points, numbered lists, and other formatting tools we have available. It can be helpful to add benefits, salary range, and perks to make your job more appealing, but the most important perk on OneSavvyDollar is that you have a tuition reimbursement policy. Job descriptions that are too extensive and detailed can result in unqualified candidates because requirements can be easily overlooked. On the other hand, jobs that are too ambiguous and vague can discourage candidates from applying because there’s not enough information about the position.

Title:

The best title will be short, sweet, and to the point. A few, specific words relating to the position is all you need! Remember: Job seekers may be searching any/all keywords related to your position. You might even consider creating a few job ads with different titles to cover all search options. Also, add any/every keyword you think applies in the title and/or job description.
Be sure not to include extraneous symbols, your company name, or a web address in your title.

Location:

It’s always beneficial to place your job under the largest metropolis within roughly 25 miles from where the job is. This assists with search algorithms and gets you higher up on the search pages. You can always include: ‘Actual Job Location: ____’ in your job description if you’re worried about misrepresenting your official office location.
Additionally, if you’re posting the same job ad multiple times, be sure each location is unique and also at least 25 miles away from the other locations. (If you post the same ad in the same city more than once, this can be viewed as spam by our job board partners.) Another easy way to avoid this issue is to tweak the title on each duplicate job ad you post so it appears unique to our partners.

Job Description:

An example of a good format for your job description might be: 1) Brief overview of the position, 2) Overview of day-to-day responsibilities, 3) Requirements that must be met in order to apply. A few questions you might consider addressing in your job ad: is this position full time or part time? Is this position entry level or is experience required?
Also, A job seeker is more likely to apply if they can get an idea of pay structure and benefits. Specific numbers aren’t necessary, but why not include whether this is a Salaried or Hourly position? Also, be sure to fill out all the sections for your tuition reimbursement policy. No filled should be left blank.

Length:

The length of your job ad will be a case by case decision but we normally recommend you keep your job around 2-3 paragraphs. A few sentences won’t communicate the full spectrum of the job and several paragraphs can seem overwhelming or time consuming to job seekers. Think like a job seeker: Would you want to read a novel? Would you be comfortable applying to a job that is only a sentence or two long? What pertinent information are you looking for in the job ad and how much length is necessary to communicate it?

How long are my ads posted?


Your ads are open indefinitely, and will not be taken down till you close them or cancel your subscription.

What if I can't find a category that works for my industry?


Select the category that best fits your job, and if your job happens to fall into more than one, don’t worry. The category you select is not as important as your job’s title and description, so your choice will not harm your job’s performance. It’s best to remain simple and straightforward with title and description so your job is easily found by interested, qualified candidates. Keywords in the job title as well as the job description help yield your job in a job seeker’s search results, so it is important both are in line with the position you are hiring for. Ask yourself: “If I was looking for a position like this, what terms would I search?”.

How do I attract more candidates?


Your goal when posting any job is to always think as a “Job Seeker”.If you were on the job hunt, what keywords would you search in order to pull up this position? What would you be looking for in the title and job description that would draw you in to apply? What pertinent information would you want included? This is also why we encourage you to fill out every section of your tuition reimbursement policy to make job seekers more attracted to your company.

When will I see activity on my job?


A new job posting will usually take about 24-36 hours to appear on our website so you should start to see some activity on your job the day after it is posted. If it’s been over 24 hours and you have yet to see any activity, feel free to contact us We’d love to take a look at your account and help you optimize your job for the best possible results.

I only need to post one more job, but all my job slots are full. Do I have to upgrade?


If you need to post an additional job but have already filled all of your job slots, then you will need to upgrade to the next available plan size. If you’re not interested in upgrading, you can close one of your active jobs to make that job slot available. Once you have an available job slot, you will be able to post your new job opportunity.
