How do I create a Job Posting?

A Job Posting is a collection of different sections that can be used to collect applications and references, conduct interviews, extend offers, submit onboarding documents and evaluate staff. Job Postings are also used as the primary search criteria to organize content in HR Management and Reporting.

Best Practices

When planning out strategy for your Job Posting, here are some items to consider:

  • Creating one Job Posting for Summer Staff is generally recommended. Job Postings are flexible to cover hiring for multiple positions, different locations as well as new versus returning staff.
  • Consider creating a new Job Posting when there are differences between the questions that you need to ask during the Application, significantly different Work Periods or if there is a unique process for Onboarding. Examples where two Job Postings may be useful include:
    • Summer Staff and Part-Time Hourly Staff
    • Summer Staff and Specialized Staff [nurses and doctors]
    • Summer Staff and Volunteers

If you have questions on the best route to take, please contact your Business Analyst.

Configure Job Posting

Before creating a Job Posting, make sure you have completed configuration.

Create Job Posting

To create a Job Posting, follow these steps:

  1. In CT6, go to Config > HR > Job Postings.

  1. Click in the bottom right corner


In this section, you will set some of the general settings for the Job Posting.

  1. Fill out the following fields:

  • Name – Add a name for the Job Posting. This will be used as reference for reports, queries and other Staff management features.
  • Position Type – Choose between:
    • Full Time
    • Part Time
    • Seasonal
    • Volunteer
  • Job Posting Year – Select the year that the Job Posting will take place.
  • Default Arrival / Departure Time – Default time used in Offer for Arrival and Departure. Can be overridden when setting up Arrival / Departure times for Work Periods or the Arrival / Departure date in Offer. Arrival and Departure times are considered unpaid.
  • Invitation Code – Add a code to provide a direct link on your website to the Job Posting. Add the following to the end of your Registration Site URL: /HR/Application/1?invite=code where code is the value entered in the field.
  • Description – Add a description that will help the Applicant select the correct Job Posting.
  • Enabled / Disabled – Easy way to disable or enable a Job Posting.
Quick Tip – If the Job Posting is disabled, you are able to login as a Site Admin and still see the Job Posting to allow you to review for testing purposes.
  1. Once finished, click Continue.


The next step allows you to configure if this Job Posting has Work Periods. A Work Period is a specific time range that is offered for employment. Work Periods can be used for different scenarios:

  • Staff Training sessions
  • Each week of the summer [multiple Work Periods]
  • Entire summer session [one Work Period]

You can also configure the Job Posting to not have Work Periods to be able to hire Full Time and Part Time staff that don’t have a specific end date.

  1. Determine if the Job Posting needs Work Periods.
    • If No, then click Continue.
    • If Yes, then click Add Work Period.
  2. Fill out the following fields:

  • Name – Add a name for the Work Period.
  • Abbreviation – Add an abbreviation that will be used in Reporting.
  • Begin / End Date – Set the length of the Work Period.
  • Arrival / Departure Date – Set these dates if your Staff need to be present before or after the Work Period. This time is considered unpaid.
  • Allow applicant selection of this Work Period? – By checking this box, Applicants will be able to select their preference for this Work Period. By unchecking, the Work Period will only show up internally and can be used to make Offers. Can be useful for training sessions.
  • Override Pay Amount – Select option and then set a default amount that is different than other Work Periods.
  1. Click Save.
  2. Click Add Work Period to add additional Work Periods as needed.
  3. Once finished, click Continue.

    • Together – Gender not considered when determining quantity of staff needed for the position.

    • Male Only
    • Female Only
  • Pay Rate – Assign a rate for the job and then select a frequency. The frequency of the rate will be used during Payroll to determine the wage.
    • Hourly – Displays the Hourly wage, no calculation is made during payroll.
    • Daily – Multiplies the number of days of employment during pay period by pay rate.
    • Bi-Weekly – Displays the Bi-Weekly wage, no calculation is made during payroll.
    • Annually – Divides the pay rate by 365 and then multiples by the number of days of employment during pay period.
    • Flat Rate – Divide the number of days in pay period by the number of days in Work Period and multiple by pay rate.
Quick Tip – When using Flat Rate, Payroll will determine the percentage of the Work Period that the employee worked during the pay period and assign a wage. Here is an example, a Counselor position is hired for a 8 week Work Period with a Flat Rate of $2,000. If they are paid every 2 weeks, the wage for that pay period will be 25% of the $2,000 or $500.
