Job Detail Page

We will also explain the function of the Sidebar with the CV dropzone on the Job layout.

Create a new Job

Creation of a new Job can be done in two ways, which is expressed in the following screenshot. The red blocks indicate the ways in which a new Job can be created with the Job Wizard.

You can enlarge any image in this article by clicking it.

A. Select the tab Jobs

B. Click on the button "New" or on Create New..." at the sidebar on the left side of the screen. Both ways will take you to the Job Wizard.


C. Select your desired Job template, the corresponding Organization (Department or Customer) and/or Type when available or needed. A Type is connected to an Application form, and thereby the corresponding page layout, workflow and e-mail templates.

Job templates prevent the recruiter from having to retype the Job requirements, Job profile, contact details, etc. For every related Job, the application provides the opportunity to create Job templates. The Job template can automatically fill in the the following fields:

After creating a Job based on a Job template, it's possible to adjust specific information of the Job manually.

D. Click "Next" to go to the next page. 


Your own company website
Publish the Job on Internet and/or Intranet. The checkbox need to be checked, and the startdate must be filled in.

Job Requirement
Make use of Job requirements to reduce the number of applications that need to be reviewed. Job Requirements can be shown on the application form as a question, where the answer can only be "Yes" or "No". It is used to determine whether a Candidate meets a specific Job requirement. There are 2 types of Job Requirements:

  • Score based: Provides a positive or negative score based on the answers the applicant gives on Job Requirement questions. Determine the importance of a question in relation to the Job and enter that value (on a scale of 1 to 99) in the field "Weight". When more than one question is used, the sum of the scores will be provided as an overall score that can be used as an advice to reject or proceed the process with the Candidate. The higher the score, the better the compatibility with the Job profile.
  • Knock-out checkbox: Questions that are configured as a knock-out, are used in case a Candidate needs to meet the requirement in order to proceed in the recruitment process. If the Candidate scores negative on that question, the scores on the other question are no longer taken into account, since the overall score will then be negative in every case. This implies that a negative score on this kind of question will automatically result in a so-called "knock-out" for the Candidate.

NB. Make sure that the checkbox ''Show job requirements'' is checked on the applicable application form in the Connexys Setup.

Hard Criteria
Hard Criteria can be used for Textkernel Search and Connexys Search to match the existing database of Candidates with the new Job in order to find a suitable Candidate for that position. So, it doesn't work with knock-out or scores like Job Requirements.
It also can be used for Job alerts, where registered persons can receive an email with Jobs that match their interests. Hard criteria are key terms like Career level or Language skills, based on which Jobs and Candidates can be matched. From release 9 it is possible to choose and search for the level of skills. More information about Hard Criteria can be found here.

Furthermore, the Candidate must be willing to work full-time in Logistics / Transportation. All hard criteria have the same weight and are therefore seen as equally important. These hard criteria will be shown on the application form for Candidates to fill out (if enabled in "Forms"). In that case, applicants will be asked to indicate the value that is in line with their expectations and experiences for these hard criteria. Based on this, the recruiter can match the Job applications or Candidates in the database and find the best suiting Candidate(s) for this Job. The user can add more existing hard criteria to the Job by use of the button "Change hard criteria" at the top of the section.
