    Job posting guidelines - updated

    From time to time we may find it necessary to update the posting guidelines of a section. We are doing so now for the guidelines of the jobs section.

    Please follow these guidelines as of May 1st 2017:
    1. Do not submit multiple vacancies of a firm in separate posts. For example, a school may advertise for teachers in different sections. Submit all in one post only, listing them with numbered points and mentioning the qualification, experience, skills if any for each. In the box for qualifications, experience and skills, you can then put "As per post applied for (see details below)". That way, the candidate will refer to the descriptive content in the text below to check the eligibility requirements.

    2. In some cases there may be even 20 vacancies. In such a case, you can state up to ten, with just a line for each on qualification & experience, then mention 'refer to official notification for more vacancies'.

    3. If there are vacancies in different locations, such as sites of an engineering company or branches of a chain of schools, then do not post them each separately. Submit it as one post, clearly mentioning the locations. Make sure, too, that you mention the last date of application. If this is not stated in the print advt, then write clearly "Last date of application not stated".

    4. Your job post should be 100% accurate. Do not state anything in the job post which is not mentioned in the print advertisement or does not appear in the job listed at the company's website. For example, do not write 'Graduate' in the 'Minimum Education' box if this is not mentioned in the advt. for a teaching post. You may be aware that it is the minimum qualification required, but it is also possible that the school may be willing to appoint an undergraduate who has teaching skills.

    5. Do not provide inaccurate websites, email IDs and contact numbers.

    6. Do not provide phone numbers and email IDs which are not mentioned in a print advertisement. If the contact info is not there, then simply clearly state as "Not provided in print advt." In the case of a non-print source, such as a pdf doc, then if at all you have looked up the official website and are giving some email ID or contact number from there, then clearly put next to it: (not for job application). That way, the company will not send complaints to ISC about receiving job applications at some ID which they did not give.

    Note: As of jobs submitted from 1st May 2017 onward, any post with inaccurate information or information which is not provided in the original source, will be deleted right away. Only if it is something minor, such as a digit being wrong in a telephone number or you have forgotten to mention the last date, then it will be shifted to pending.

    Clarifications & queries can be submitted in a response in this thread.

    This is a good initiative on the part of ISC to advise job posting members to mention all vacancies of a particular company or organization in one post so that it would have higher reach and benefits the net users.

    Please confirm whether the postings should be done from the material obtained from print version only. Nowadays we can see many ads from the company website only. Can we obtain the information directly from the website of the company concerned and post it here?

  • #597285

    Yes, you can also furnish such jobs where details provided by the organisation in their website.

    But before go through the advertisement to check the date of advertisement, last date for applying, all the posts are still exists etc., as on the date of making your job post.

    If Email Id or Phone number is not provided in the print advertisement, can we provide the company's / institution's official Email ID or Phone number (for contact) from the company's official website?

    Thank-you for providing the guidelines for job posting. I have not yet posted in job section. This would help the members to clarify the doubts related to job postings.

  • #597314

    In such cases mention in the description box the contact details where the application is to be sent and the position available, however you can mention Head Office contact details in the column 'Compnay Address'.


    Better not to mention email address and contact numbers in case if not given in the advertisement, however you are also allowed to mention the email and contact number with a note 'not for job application'.
