Using the Career Center
Posting a Job and getting Applicants!
Together SC has operated an online Career Center job board for its members for many years. In fact, we frequently hear from member staff, "I found my current job on jobs.togethersc.org"! On this page, we're including some extra information about accessing and making the best use of Together SC's Career Center.
About Web Scribble
Together SC contracts with a third-party company, Web Scribble, which hosts and manages the Career Center on their software. Any member using the board who needs help with it should first use the chatbox in the bottom right corner of their browser window to talk to Rick, our Recruitment Specialist from WebScribble. He can help troubleshoot most issues with the site.
Accessing the Career Center
If your organization is not a member of Together SC, you can join and receive a $100 discount on job posts! If you'd rather pay full price, then all you need to do is create an employer account on the Career Center, to manage your posts and applications.
If your organization is a member of Together SC, then you should log in using your email address and password for togethersc.org and then navigate to jobs.togethersc.org. When you click the "sign-in" button there, you will be asked if you are a member, so click "yes", and you will be signed in through your Together SC membership and you will be able to receive the member discounts and one free post per year!
If you log in, and only see options for applying for jobs, not posting jobs, your e-mail address is associated with a jobseeker account rather than an employer account. You can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to ask them to change your account from a jobseeker account to an employer account.
Posting a Job
In order to post a job, you first have to purchase the post. You can even purchase multiple posts at one time. The posts you purchase are credited to your account and can be used at any time. In order to use the member pricing, you must be logged in as a Together SC member (see above).
Then, once you have purchased a post, you will be taken to the next page to fill out the post information. Please fill in as much information as you can. The more information you provide the better-informed job seekers will be when applying.
Although posting a salary range in a job announcement is not a legal requirement, it is widely considered a good practice. Disclosing salary ranges up-front saves time for the applicant and organization alike, and also helps to promote equitable hiring practices. Together SC now requires salary ranges For fun, more comprehensive tips on creating job postings, view these two posts from Vu Le:

Getting the Best Candidates
A thorough and clear job post will go a long way to getting the right people applying for your job. Here are some other steps you can take:
- Fill out your Employer Profile, including a logo and link to your organization's website, so job seekers can do their research on your organization!
- Upgrade your post to a Sponsored Post or become a Featured Employer! These can be added to the Basic post, and are included in the Enhanced and Premium Post packages.
- Add your post to the Exclusive Extended Partner Network (including Talroo (previously Jobs2Careers), ZipRecruiter, Adzuna, and Google for Jobs.) and/or the Professional Diversity Network! These can be added to the Basic and Enhanced posts, and are included in the Premium Post package.
