Customizing the social media sharing image


Workable displays a default "We're Hiring" image when you share direct links to your jobs on social media. In this example, a hiring manager has shared a link to their job on their personal LinkedIn feed:


If you prefer, you can use a custom image when sharing direct links to your job. For example, you may prefer to use your organization's logo or a picture of your employees. Only one image can be used at a time and will apply to all job links.

If you've already shared links and you change the image, those social posts will update automatically with the new image, but this is not immediate and may take a few days.

Follow these steps to change the social media sharing image:

  • Navigate to the Company Profile section of your account
  • Scroll to the Social Image Sharing section
  • Click Choose and select the image you want to use from your computer
  • Click Save Changes to finalize the selection

Recommended image dimensions

We recommend using an image that is 1200x1200 pixels. To avoid parts of the image being automatically cropped, be sure to keep key details centered.

Twitter, for example, will display the image as a square. LinkedIn will display the image as a rectangle. In the example below, the part of the image highlighted in white is what would appear in a LinkedIn post.


Testing your image

After updating your image it can take a few days for social sites to register the new image. This will happen automatically for all your shared links.

If you'd like to test out the new image right away, use the LinkedIn Post Inspector:

You'll see a preview of what the new image will look like on LinkedIn posts. 

If you refresh Workable and choose to share the job on LinkedIn (or if you share the shortlink), the image will be updated.

Reverting to the default image

You can revert to the original "We're hiring" image any time by selecting Revert to default image, or change the image again by choosing another file.
