2081355 - Manage Career Sites - Recruiting Management

Symptom

  • Recruiting sites (also called microsites) allow you to define multiple search landing pages for candidates, complete with unique logos, text, and pre-set search filters.
    Every client instance has both a Default career site (default for external candidates) and an Internal site
    (default for internal candidates).
  • When Recruiting Management is used in conjunction with Recruiting Marketing microsite functionality
    still works but mostly goes unused because the Recruiting Marketing sites are superior. The Internal site
    and Default site still should be set up and carefully considered because they will still receive a fair
    amount of candidate traffic, even with Recruiting Marketing enabled.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Quick Facts

  • There is no way to disable or prevent external candidates from accessing the Default site. This will always be available to them after they create or log in to their account
  • Only one career site can exist for internal candidates; additional microsites cannot be configured
  • The page layout (search box on the left, configurable content on the right) cannot be changed.
  • The background color of the search box is not configurable
  • If events functionality is used, posted events will appear as “posters” at the bottom of the main search screen. The filters selected in the career site setup affect which events appear on the screen

Working with Recruiting Sites

Default Site

The site marked as default has the instance-specific URL. Note the Default site does not respect filter settings. All job postings can be searched on the Default site.

Instance Specific Site URL
Each microsite has a uniquely-generated URL. This URL links the candidate to a microsite with the
admin-specified filters already applied and locked in place.

Field Purpose
Site URL Unique auto-generated URL linking the user to the site. This URL cannot be adjusted manually. Whichever career site is designated as the Default will have the shorter URL that ends in the company instance ID, such as:
https://salesdemo4.successfactors.com/career?company=INSTANCEID
Site Status Sites can be de-activated by unchecking this box if they are in preparation or temporarily decommissioned
Default Site One site at a time can be selected as the Default by selecting this checkbox. When this is selected, it will uncheck the box from the site previously designated as Default
Name of Site A configurable value only used by the admin to identify sites
Description A configurable value only used by the admin to identify sites
Language Each career site can contain various translations of the content, which
allows a candidate to select their chosen for viewing the site. This
language drop down is a toggle used to switch between languages and
set up the various translated copies of the content.
Set as default When a candidate visits a career site, the system attempts to present
the candidate with the best language pack possible.
1. It will first attempt to ascertain the language of the candidate’s browser and will, by default, display the site in that language if it is enabled.
2. If the system cannot determine the candidate’s language from the browser, it will use the language selected as the default
Default Language This indicates the career site’s present default language
Site Landing Page This determines the text, html, images and Flash content presented on the right side of the career site page. Embedded video and audio files are not supported.
Signed-in Homepage: Overall Description Determines the text, html, images and Flash content at the top of the candidate Home tab
Signed-in Homepage: Job Search description Determines the text, html, images and Flash content in the left-hand Job Search grid on the candidate Home tab.
The action links in this part of the grid are not configurable.
Signed-in Homepage:
Manage Jobs description
Determines the text, html, images and Flash content in the center Job Management grid on the candidate Home tab.
The action links in this part of the grid are not configurable.
Signed-in Homepage: My
Profile description
Determines the text, html, images and Flash content in the right-hand My Profile grid on the candidate Home tab.
The action links in this part of the grid are not configurable.
Job Filters The filters available are based on the configuration in Provisioning > Internal and External Search Settings. In multi-language environments the language field will always appear as well.
The Default career site does not respect selected filters; all externally posted jobs will always be available on the Default career site. If filters are set up on a career site, a user accessing that site will not be able to remove the filter; all other options in the picklist will be hidden. The selected option will be checked and greyed out.
Add Logo Each career site can have a unique logo specified. The image file used for the logo should be first hosted in the same datacenter in which the client’s instance is hosted or there could be browser security warning pop ups for users who access the career site.
Logos should be 40x210 pixels to fit into the space provided in the upper left hand corner of the application. Transparent GIF (RGB recommended)
