Release: 16.4

View As PDF


The iCIMS Talent Platform allows users to track a company's job openings as well as the candidates who apply to the company’s jobs. The fields presented when creating and managing a Job Profile are configurable, so your experience may differ from the screenshots shown below. A red asterisk (*) beside a field indicates that it is required.

The image below shows an example of the job description data that may be entered during the job creation process, typically after initial Job Detail information is entered. (The job creation process is discussed in the Creating a New Job or Requisition article.)

Once a job has been created, information that has been entered during the job creation process may be reviewed on the appropriate tab(s) of the Job Profile, as shown below.

  • To edit Job Description information after a job has been created, click the Edit button on the Description Tab.
  • Each field within the Job Description Tab includes a What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) editor, which supports a number of formatting options and features for users. Users may add images, videos, and other media and links within these fields. Note that the formatting controls available may vary slightly among browsers. Users may paste text from Microsoft Word directly into the textbox (without having to click a Paste From Word button).
  • Modifying the font family, size, and color of text in these fields is strongly discouraged, as this formatting will overwrite global font settings for your Career Portal, which may create an undesirable appearance.

Job Description Tab

Overview: The Overview free-text field typically includes pertinent high-level information about the job and may contain additional relevant information about the team, department, and/or organization.
Responsibilities: The Responsibilities free-text field typically includes specific responsibilities associated with this job opening.

iCIMS has created a series of articles to assist iCIMS users in mastering working with jobs within the system.
