Manage Categories on your job board


Jobs on your job board are organized by a set of categories or industries. You can add as many categories as you'd like. These categories can be used as filters when searching and browsing for jobs. Typically, the categories would consist of job categories of expertise, such as IT, Industrial, Engineering, Administrative, etc.

Manage Categories - Add, edit or delete categories and update category-specific settings.

To add, edit or delete categories, and to update settings by category, go to myHaley and click Job Boards>Settings>Manage Categories. (If you have an integrated job board, categories are controlled by the data coming from your Applicant Tracking System. Integrated clients should reach out to with questions on adding/editing/deleting categories.)

Add a Category

To add a new category to your job board, go to myHaley and click on Manage Categories under the Job Boards menu in the left sidebar.


Once there, you may add a new category by typing the name of the category into the "Add A New Category" name field and clicking the "Add" button. Once you click "Add", a new screen will appear that will allow you to add a category description (for internal use only) and update several new category-specific settings.

To edit a category label, just select the category from the drop down and change the text within the Category Name field. To delete a category, just scroll to the bottom of the category settings page and click the red "Delete" button. Please be careful, though, deleting a category deletes all the custom category settings, as well as removes candidates from that category for Featured Mailings.

Please note: For clients who have ATS integrations, your list of categories comes directly from your ATS job data, you will not use this section to Manage Categories, unless you are deleting a no longer used category.


You may choose to use sub-categories as well. To enable sub-categories, go to Job Boards>Settings>Searching and check the box under the Category Label field to Enable Sub-categories.

You can then add sub-categories using the same method outlined above.

New Feature Alert: Category-specific settings are now available!

  2. Application Forms:
    • Mobile Application: Set the application form presented to users viewing jobs on a mobile device to either override a third party application, or to request education and experience (short form vs. long form).
    • Desktop Application: Similar to mobile, for a specific category, set the application form presented to users are viewing jobs on a desktop device.

Category Mailings - UPDATED SECTION - New Options

Category Mailings are an easy way to provide extra value to your candidates, improve job response rates, and request referrals. These email notifications are sent to candidates who have created an account on your job board, and have given you permission to email. The emails match candidates who have specified an interest in a particular category with jobs that match that category and are automatically sent weekly.

Many of our clients have been using an earlier version of Category Mailings - the previous iteration of this feature allowed clients who post jobs via myHaley and some integrations to set specific jobs as "Featured". These Category Mailings work almost the same way, with more options for those clients who cannot mark jobs as featured with their third party integrations.

  1. What to Send (NEW FEATURE): This allows a client to choose the types of jobs from this category to include in these automated mailings. You can choose "New Jobs Marked Featured" (which is what Featured Mailings has always been - new jobs that are marked as featured) - or the newest option to include "Any New Matching Job" (which includes any new jobs posted since the last mailing). To disable mailings, select "Nothing, Disable Mailing".
  2. Send From: Send this category's mailings from your job board's default owner, or the recruiter of your choice.
  3. Email Subject: The default subject is "Featured Jobs for {category name}" - to customize the subject line, just type the new one into this field. The subject line is also included in the email body, as seen in the Email Preview below this section.
  4. Email Preview (NEW FEATURE): See how your email will look with your customizations before you send it! To edit the email template, click on the "Edit Template" button. This will display the fields that make up the email.
    • Email Header - Add content which will appear below the subject line and above the job links.
    • Email Footer - Add content which will appear below the job posts and above the email's closing.
    • Email Template - By default, your company logo will appear at the top with a simple design using either the default black or your primary logo color. Changes made to this template will override the default email template, which is located and editable within the main Featured Mailings section.
  5. When to Send: This setting determines on which day these weekly mailings will be sent. Mailings may be set as "Not Schedule" if you prefer to use the "Send Now" option.
  6. Proximity (NEW FEATURE)Users that have valid zip codes in their profiles will only be notified of jobs within this proximity of their location. Users without a valid zip code will see all jobs in mailings.
  7. Send Now: Clicking this button will queue up a mailings to be sent within 5-10 minutes. Make sure you choose "What to Send" prior to using this option to ensure the correct jobs are included in the Send Now mailing.

Please Note: Mailings are sent starting at approximately 12:01am on the day you chose to schedule the mailing, unless you chose to send the mailing immediately. If a mailing is set up in the same day it is scheduled, our system looks for these mailings and will send them within 5-10 minutes of creation of the mailing.

Syndication Options: Use this option to exclude a categories jobs from a specific job feed.

  1. Send jobs in this category to: Uncheck boxes in front of feeds to exclude jobs from posting.
  2. Suggested Default Ad Spend for Recruitics: Does NOT enable spending. This will display a suggestion message when managing jobs.
