After learning about all the benefits of signing up for your free employer profile with Knowledge to Work in our recent blog post, Knowledge to Work for Employers, you probably can’t wait to get started on establishing an employer profile for your business or organization. In this blog post, we’ve outlined a simple step-by-step guide to walk you through how to do just that!

The Benefits of Creating an Employer Profile

Before we get started on our sign up walkthrough, let’s do a quick recap of the benefits of signing up for a free employer profile account with KnowledgeToWork.com:

Step 1: See if Your Business or Organization is Already Listed

The first step for all employers is to check to see whether your employer is already listed on KnowledgeToWork.com. Certain employers have been preloaded and all you’ll need to do if this applies to your business is to claim your account. So begin by searching to see if your business or organization is already listed.

To do this, you’ll first enter the zip code of your business or organization. You will also enter a few letters that appear in the business’ or organization’s name. For example, if the name of your business is “Goodall Manufacturing”, try searching “Goodall,” “good,” “manufacturing,” or something similar.

If you locate your business or organization through this search, click the “Claim Listing” button to the right of your business’s or organization’s name. Then proceed to Step 2.

If you do not locate your business or organization through this search, click the “Create Profile” button. Then proceed to Step 3.

Step 2: Claim Your Account

If your business or organization was already preloaded, some of the work of setting up your employer profile has already been done for you! You’ll want to claim ownership of your profile, however, to add details about your business or organization and any job roles you hire for.

To claim your profile, enter your business’ or organization’s legal name, trade name, website URL (if you have one), and explain if any of the information we have on file for your business or organization is incorrect. Next, you’ll enter the full name and email address of the person at your business or organization who will be responsible for managing your employer profile. This person will either be the owner or someone authorized by the owner to manage the profile and is responsible for hiring at your business or organization. To verify the responsible party’s ownership or association with your business or organization, we also require the URL of a respected website where we can find the responsible party and their email address related to the business. Usually, this is your business’ or organization’s website, but this could also be another website like that of a professional organization that provides details about the responsible party and their relationship to the business or organization. Then proceed to step 4.

Step 3: Create Your Employer Profile

If your business or organization has not been preloaded, you will sign up for a new account. After clicking the “Create Profile” button at the end of your search results from Step 1, you’ll be redirected to the employer sign up page. Use this page to select the primary industry sector of your business. This selection will determine which industry your business is listed under in search results. Regardless of your selection, you can create job profiles from any industry sector supported by Knowledge to Work. You will next select your employer type (whether you represent a business or an organization) and enter the legal name and trade name of your business or organization. Only your trade name will be displayed to users. In the next section, you will enter the address of the primary location of your business (this is usually your business’ or organization’s headquarters or main office). You may enter additional locations once your account is established. Then enter the website (if applicable) and phone number of your business or organization.

The last step in signing up for your free employer profile is to enter the name of the person who will be responsible for managing this account and their email address. We also require some form of verification of the responsible party’s ownership or association with your business or organization. This verification may come from the business’ or organization’s website, the website of a professional organization, or even a document emailed to us (details on the sign-up page).

Lastly, click the “Sign Up” button at the bottom of the page and continue to Step 4.

Step 4: Verification

Once you have submitted the information for either claiming or creating your employer profile, one of our team members will review your submission to verify the details entered and the responsible party’s relationship to the business or organization. Once this has been completed, the responsible party will receive a confirmation email with an activation code. The responsible party should follow the link in the email and enter the confirmation code on that webpage. This confirms the responsible party’s email account, allows them to set up their username and password, and provides them with access to manage the employer profile.

Step 5: Add Additional Information to Your Employer Profile

Once the responsible party has access to managing the employer profile, you will want to add additional information about your business or organization to be able to attract qualified job candidates. This information can include listing additional locations, linking to social media accounts, adding descriptions about your business or organization, explaining the workplace culture there, describing the benefits of working there, uploading the business’ or organization’s logo for display in search results and on your employer profile page, and creating job roles. The responsible party will also be able to submit learning resources valued by the employer for inclusion in our learning resources database and to view data about user activity on your employer profile pages, including the number of views your employer profile has received and the number of views each job role has received from users.
