How do I post a job?
There are multiple ways to access our job posting page.  One is located in the upper right corner of any page, another is on the employer home page, yet another is in the Resources section on the My Account page.


Once you click the link to post a job, you will be brought to a form where you can enter data. Only the fields marked by a red asterisk are required.  It is very important that a city, state and zip code are listed for each job. If you enter something general like "Twin Cities" the program that cross-posts our jobs cannot function properly and your job(s) may not be sent to our partner sites.


You can select one of three ways Job seekers are to apply. The first is to have resumes emailed to a specific address, the second is to enter a URL where Job seekers will be redirected, and the third is to use your account on MinnesotaJobs.com to manage your applications.


Applications of Job seekers who apply by email are stored in your account. We cannot store Job seeker information if we redirect them away from MinnesotaJobs.com as they have just clicked-through from our site to yours.
