Understanding and Creating Location Profiles

Release: 16.2

View As PDF


The Location Profile (sometimes called the Company Profile, depending on your organization’s preference) stores location data (i.e. street, city, state, zip, and country) used primarily on the Job Profile and used by candidates as a search choice for a job’s corporate location.
Location Profiles are typically linked to both Job and Person Profiles. Recruiters use the Location Profile when creating and posting Job Profiles to Career Portals. Hiring managers can be associated to a Location Profile to track profiles relevant to the company. A Location Profile can also have multiple hiring managers assigned to it, including contacts at agencies.

Each Platform database includes one Location Profile (System ID 5) that typically bears your organization’s name. Note that this profile cannot be purged from the system.
This article provides basic information about creating and working with Location or Company Profiles. For advanced interactions with Location Profiles, including adding a nested address or hiring manager to a Location Profile, please refer to the Adding a Nested Address or Hiring Manager to a Location Profile article.

Location Profile Tabs

The Location or Company Profile typically has two tabs that organize company information. The Professional Tab contains fields that are specific to the Location Profile. The Managers Tab contains fields related to the Hiring Manager Profile(s) and/or any associated managers and/or agency contacts. (Note: The options displayed may vary depending upon the configuration of your Platform and may not match the list below.)

    • For Step 2, type the agency name in the Name field.

  • iCIMS Technical Support can enable a field called Location Name (Integration) if an alternate company name should be displayed for job posting purposes. This field is hidden by default and, if enabled, allows the client to share an alternate name to Job Distribution or I-9 E-Verify providers in regards to this job.
