Add Jobseeker Portal resource links


Why is this important?

The portal is designed to be the ultimate hub for job seeking: A one-stop-shop for relevant jobs on offer and resources.

Therefore - adding resource links lets your jobseekers have extra materials at their fingertips if they need more assistance. 

It allows you to link:

  • Additional job boards that you recommend, or are affiliated with 
  • Online resume builders
  • Cover sheet tips-and-tricks
  • Online fact sheets and important government notices


And anything else you want your job seekers to have quick and easy access to!

Icons are arranged in the resource page in a clean, visual presentation - information that is easy to process.

The more resources you can provide, the less contact is needed for admin purposes - and exchanging documentation.

How it works

The Job Seeker Portal Links section of admin settings, lets you control the external links that jobseekers see in:

  • The resources section of the portal
  • Accessed by clicking on Resources from the main menu

These are links to:

  • other online job databases that may assist your job seekers in their search
  • any handy supplemental materials to facilitate the job seeking process. 

The links will be displayed as hyperlinked icons on the job seeker portal Resources page.
