Your careers page is in a way, a marketing pitch. It can make an unforgettable first impression in attracting job seekers and converting them to applicants. In short, the careers page is an effective candidate sourcing method you can rely on.


This article helps you understand:

  1. What are the available approaches for careers page integration in Skillate?

  2. What happens if you opt for any of the three integration approaches?

  3. What are the configuration and other settings available for each of the three approaches?


Skillate provides three ways in which you can set up your careers page. 

To name them:

  1. Careers page hosted by Skillate

  2. Embed Skillate’s job board on your website 

  3. API-driven careers page 


Approach 1: Careers page hosted by Skillate (by default)


Scenario: Your company name is Acme.Inc., and when you set up your Skillate account, your career page will be ready at acme-inc.skillate.com by default.

The page can be linked to your website. All the jos published from Skillate will be mapped here and candidates can apply for jobs.



By default, our solutions team will help you set up a careers page for you. The careers page URL will be in the format of yourdomainname.skillate.com. Please note that - ‘Skillate’ will be displayed as part of the URL.


Further, you can configure your company information, upload company policy, enable Google Analytics, etc. by navigating to Skillate’s Settings> Sourcing Information> Career Page. Learn more.

Approach 2: Your Careers Page, Our Job Listing


Scenario: Your company name is Acme Inc., you have designed your careers page, and the URL says acme-inc.com/careers.

When you embed Skillate's iframe on your website, you can list out all the jobs published through Skillate on your careers page, i.e., acme-inc.com/careers

Suppose a candidate clicks on any of the jobs, the job details will open on the same page, and the URL will still show your domain name, not Skillate's.

For example, acme-inc.com/careers?jobId=1234 (here, 1234 refers to Job ID) and Skillate is not displayed



If you wish to have your careers page appear as part of the company’s whole website, this is the best solution for you. All you need to do is embed the below iframe code snippet on your website. 


You can find the code snippet from within the product by logging in to your Skillate account and navigating to Settings > Sourcing Configuration > Career Page. 

By embedding the iframe: 

  1. Clicking on any of the listed jobs will open the job details on the same page. Thus, the candidate can apply for a job without having to leave the page.

  2. The job listing and job application pages will have your domain address. Skillate branding won’t display on the URL.

Note: Though the overall look and feel of the webpage are in your hands, the Job Listing and following pages can be configured from Skillate. 

You can log in to Skillate using Site Admin privileges and navigate to Settings > Sourcing Information > Career Page for the same.



Approach 3: Your Careers Page, Your Job Listing, Our Job Page

Scenario: Your company name is Acme Inc., you have designed your careers page, and the URL says acme-inc.com/careers.

When you use Skillate's API-driven career integrtaion, you can list out all the jobs published through Skillate on your career page, i.e., acme-inc.com/careers

Suppose a candidate clicks on any of the jobs, the job details will open in a new tab with the URL acme-inc.skillate.com/jobs/1234 (here, 1234 refers to Job ID)


If you wish to have your careers page appear as per your company’s UI style guide, here is the solution for you. 


When you use an API-driven careers page, you can have the list of jobs appear as part of your website. To fetch the list of jobs, all you need to do is - call the API from your backend. However, clicking on any of the jobs will open a new page with the Skillate name on the URL. Additionally, you can add filters as part of request parameters.


All required APIs are readily available within the product. You can find them by logging in to your Skillate account and navigating to Settings > Sourcing Configuration > Career Page.

Note: The look and feel of the careers page are further customizable from the backend with the help of your developer.

However, the job details and job application pages can be configured from Skillate. You can log in to Skillate using Site Admin privileges and navigate to Settings > Sourcing Information > Career Page.


Approach 4: Everything yours, except the 'apply now' form


It is literally a combination of both approaches 2 and 3. That is, you can control the look and feel of the website using API and use the job application iframe to embed it on the job application page. Hence, the candidates who are applying for the job need not have to leave the page. It will look like they are applying from your company website itself.
