Setting the company industry and job function fields


In the job editor, you have the option to select your company's industry and a job function for the position. Your selection will impact the visibility of your post through search and filtering options on job boards, as well as job board recommendations within Workable.

Leaving these options blank will reduce the visibility for your post on some job boards, so it's recommended that you select something for every job you publish.


The options in these fields come directly from our partner job boards and cannot be customized.

For the industry, choose the option that most closely matches what your company does.

For the function, choose the option that matches the job you're currently creating.

Workable will recommend job boards based on your choices. For example, if the job has an IT function, then sites like Stackoverflow or Dice are more likely to be recommended. Conversely, if the job is in marketing, other boards would be recommended.
