To take full advantage of your employer profile account on Knowledge to Work, you will want to create job roles for the positions your business or organization hires for. Job roles allow you to communicate to potential employees the exact skills you’re looking for in job candidates to ensure the job pool you have to choose from when it’s time to hire someone new meets your needs. Read more about the benefits and learn how to add job roles below.

The Benefits of Adding Job Roles to Your Employer Profile

There are many benefits of signing up for an employer profile account on KnowledgeToWork.com. Adding job roles may be one of the most unique employer profile features Knowledge to Work offers as well as one of the most beneficial for attracting qualified job candidates to your business or organization.

The process of hiring an employee can be a headache for employers. Your employer profile account is designed to make employee recruitment and selection a breeze. Knowledge to Work’s focus on work-based learning and competency-based education means we provide an audience that’s already focused on learning the exact skills employers are looking for. Adding job roles with the requirements you want your employees to have, including competency statements detailing the exact skills you need in employees, means that these dedicated learners can concentrate their efforts on preparing themselves for work according to your standards. Read on to learn more about how you can inform job seekers about what it means to work for you.

Adding a Job Role

Adding a job role to your employer profile is simple. While logged into your account, select the “Job Roles” tab from the menu. Next, you’ll want to decide whether you would like to add a job role from a template or a blank job role. Most likely you’ll want to add a job role from a template, so we’ll start there.

Adding a Job Role from a Template

Select “Manage Templates” under the “Job Roles” tab in your user menu. Explore the templates available to determine which template fits best with the job role you want to add. Click the “View” button to see more information about each template. When you’ve made your selection, click the “Copy to Private” button to save the template to your account. You will now have a section called “Your private custom templates” on this page. In that section, select the “Edit” button to customize the template to reflect the job role at your business or organization. From the edit screen, you can customize the name, description, education requirements, work experience, and on-the-job training provided for this job role. You can also specify which locations of your business or organization hire for this job role and add and remove competencies. Making these adjustments allows you to most accurately communicate to potential future employees what you’re looking for in job candidates.

If you feel that none of these templates offer a good starting place for the job role you want to add, see the following section for how to add a blank job role.

Adding a Custom Job Role

To create a blank or custom job role, select “Manage Job Roles” under the “Job Roles” tab in your user menu. Using the dropdown menu, select “Blank Job Role” and click the “Add Job Role” button. Now you can enter in all the relevant information about this job role from scratch, so it is fully customized to your business or organization.

Managing Job Roles

If you’ve already added one or more job roles and need to make a change to one, see the following explanations.

Editing a Job Role

To edit a job role you have already added, select the name of the job role under the “Job Roles” tab in your user menu. If you’re interested in changing the basic information about the job role, such as the name, description, education requirements, etc., click the “Edit” button to make these changes. If you’re interested in adding additional competencies to the job role, select the “Add Competency” button. If you would like to add an explanatory description to a competency already added, click the “Add Description” button to the right of any competency. To delete a competency statement from a job role, click the “Delete” button to the right of any competency.

Removing a Job Role

To remove a job role you have already added, select “Manage Job Roles” under the “Job Roles” tab in your user menu. To delete the job role, select the “Delete” button to the right of the job role.
