Job Posting Guidelines

How to make sure your positions meet requirements for job boards and, in turn, earn the best results.

Crafting the perfect job description can be a tough gig. But beyond providing plenty of information that entices would-be candidates to apply, you'll need to include specific details about your company, boost clarity within the job description, and meet an easy but important number of requirements to make your job post a success.

Before we can promote your positions, we'll need to verify some account details and make sure every job post meets the following list of requirements.

Wait, why do I have to meet these requirements?

As your job posting partner, we need to make sure that we're only posting legitimate jobs for anyone that may encounter them. Beyond the ethics, the job boards require these details from us. 😉

Here's how to make sure your job post is accepted and promoted, every time:

Company Requirements

  • You must list your full company name and avoid abbreviations of any kind

  • We need to be able to identify your company through public details, or similar. If we can't, we may ask for additional, verifying documentation.

  • You'll need to have a company website that matches the company name you provided when you created your Breezy account.

Job Requirements

  • The title of the position should include a standard description of the position that is easily identifiable for future candidates. For example, "ISO Developer" instead of "Coding Genius."

  • The title should only include one position in Breezy. If you’re hiring for multiple openings for​ the same position, you should still title it as the singular version of the position. For example, “Teachers” or “Mechanics” should be “Teacher” and “Mechanic.”

  • AVOID USING CAPITAL LETTERS or exaggerated punctuation. Leave out any additional information that looks spammy, like "We are Hiring ASAP!!!" 🛑

Location Requirements

  • City, State, Country are all required fields when promoting a position. If the job posting is for remote work, tick the ‘Remote/Telecommute’ box, and include the head office as the job’s location. Your job is more likely to be posted if you provide a location since job boards will know where to post it 📍

  • If you want to post a job in two or more locations, just dupe 'em and create additional postings. Job boards will decline your posting if you provide two locations in a single post.

Description Requirements

  • In your job description, include specific details for candidates, such as the duties and requirements of the position at your company. Bonus desirability points for adding ​benefits and perks.

  • Aim for at least 700 characters overall.

  • Avoid providing alternative ways for a candidate to apply (like an email address, phone number or website link). Those will be declined.

  • Your description should be easy to read! Help candidates skim the ad with easy formatting changes like headers, bold text, and bulleted lists. Limit the use of links and images, since most job boards won't support them.

    • We don't recommend copying and pasting your descriptions from a program like Word, which can cause some formatting issues for job boards.
    • Need to jumpstart your job description? You can pre-fill a description from our searchable job description library:
  • Avoid terminology that could be viewed as discriminatory. This includes:
    • Any age references, like “college students welcome”
    • Gendered pronouns (“she” or “he”)
    • Nationality ("We love Canadians! 🇨🇦")

Additional Requirements

  • If you repost and/or refresh your jobs all the time, job boards will notice and may not continue to accept your post.

  • For the positions you plan to keep in your Career Portal for an extended amount of time, use paid promotions to boost visibility. :mega:

  • If you just posted your position directly to the job board and then try to promote through Breezy, there's a chance they'll consider it a duplicate and may not accept the position at all.


My position post was perfect according to all of these rules. Why can't it be posted?

We've tried to cover the major reasons most job boards refuse to post certain positions, but the guidelines above are not a comprehensive list. We'll always do our best to make sure your position gets as much as exposure as possible, in all the right places, and let you know where we think you can make improvements.

Why don't I see my activated position on a job board yet?

After you activate your position, it will go through our review process (where we make sure you've got the best chance of the most eyeballs 👀), and then we send it straight to your indicated job boards. Your activated position will take less than 12 hours to go through our review, and less than 24 hours to sync to the job boards.
