Best Practices

  1. When posting jobs, we encourage you to share as much information as possible but the following fields are required in order to be filtered out to our partner job board aggregators such as Zip Recruiter, Monster, Jobs2Careers, etc.:

    • Job Title - For keyword search purposes, we encourage using the type of specialty and physician you’re looking to hire in the title along with the location as well as any other enticing information that would encourage job seekers to click on your job postings. The title should be short, keyword oriented, informative, and motivate candidates to click for more information!

    • State - Make sure you are selecting/setting the state the position is located in.

    • Zip Codes - For maximum exposure, it is critical to include zip codes for relevant cities. If it’s not entered, you are missing opportunities for your jobs to get the most exposure and receive more leads. (If you’re entering multiple zip codes, remember that one zip code will automatically target a 25-mile radius around that location).

    • License - Make sure you are selecting/setting the appropriate license for the position.

    • Specialty - Make sure you are selecting/setting the appropriate specialty for the position.

    • Description - Provide a unique, well-written, and detailed description of the job. Try to include keywords to help your jobs populate in more searches through our aggregate partners.

    • Requirements - Provide a detailed list of the requirements you have for the applicants for that specific job campaign.

    • Shift Type - Include the Shift Type within these options: Day, Evening, Overnight or Flex.

    • Shifts Per Week - Provide the number of shifts per week within the 3-6 range.

    • Hours Per Shift - Provide the number of hours per shift within the 6-16 range.

    • Pay Range - Providing a pay range for a job allows for better conversions. Leads value the transparency of this information. In order to use these fields, all 3 fields must be completed.

      • Minimum Pay - The minimum pay (amount must be lower than maximum pay).

      • Maximum Pay - The maximum pay (amount must be higher than minimum pay).

      • Frequency - The frequency of pay within these options: Hourly, Daily, Weekly, Monthly, or Yearly.

  2. Do not instruct applicants to apply to the job post via phone, email, or any other means. Interested job seekers will apply to your post directly on our site and you will receive their information as soon as they click “submit.”

  3. If you are in one of the plans that provide you with a unique tracking phone number (Silver, Diamond, or Platinum), we encourage you to add this phone number into your job posts. This number automatically re-routes to the recruiting phone number on file for your employer, but allows us to better track the activity that is being sent your way because of our site or job posts specifically.

  4. Job postings are automatically set to deactivate every two weeks due to the timeliness of assignments in order to keep our board as up to date as possible for job candidates. It is in your best interest however, to get in the habit of regularly re-activating positions that remain open after the two-week period and actively posting new and current jobs if you want to achieve maximum results.

  5. Another thing to keep in mind: Filling out as much information as you can on the Employer Profile will help to rank your job posts slightly higher on our job boards.

The above guidelines are based on the results of our most successful clients. Start posting jobs immediately to increase your chances of receiving direct job applications!

Jobs that don’t meet quality standards may be subject to review and/or adjustment. Listings that prove misleading, compromise the job seeker experience or those which LocumJobsOnline deem not representing a “real” job may be made only selectively visible or removed from search results altogether. Please note: LocumJobsOnline retains the right to edit or remove any job if we feel it is in our interest or our users’ interest.
