Step 3: Post a Job

Posting your positions can be done in three easy steps.

First, log in to your BioTalent Canada account and go to My Dashboard to access the job postings loaded into your account. NOTE: When you log in, you will automatically be taken to the My Dashboard page. If you were already logged in, you can find your dashboard by clicking on the My Dashboard button at the top of the page.

Image 4 – The My Dashboard button at the top of the page will take you to where you can access the job postings loaded into your account. Once you are in your dashboard, you will also be able to edit or update your profile, view past purchases, and view your message notifications.

Image 5 – Your dashboard is where you can post a job, or purchase more, and see how many job postings you have available. You can also review past purchases.

Your message bank is also on your dashboard. This is where you will receive notifications from BioTalent Canada regarding new applicants and order notifications (once a day, an email is sent to you when new messages are available).

Image 6 – After clicking the Post a job button, you will be taken to the Create Job posting page. This is where you will input the Job Title, Location, and Job Details. The page is laid out to make the process easy for you.

If you are planning on having applicants apply directly to, for example, your company’s website or email (not through the applicant depository in your BioTalent Canada account), make sure you click on the External Posting box located under the Job Title field.

If you choose to receive applications through your BioTalent Canada account, you can view the applications to your job posting by clicking the Manage my Applicant link on the left-hand side menu.

Job postings are automatically set to close 30 days after the date of posting.

Job Posting Tip: Planning on copying the job details from an existing document? Word documents work best for copying and pasting information into the various fields. Basic formatting options exist within the information fields, so unformatted text works best for transferring the information.
