Then, click the Manage Job Posts link on the next page.
Share on LinkedIn
Make Sure that you’re on the Open Jobs tab.
You should see your Active job posting. Click the three dots on the right and select Share in a Post on the drop-down.
It will automatically create a feed for you. Just enter a catchy phrase and add some hashtags then click the Post button. You’re all set.
You can also share this feed in a group.
Share on Other Social Media Platform
You can’t limit yourself on LinkedIn. You can also share the post on any social media platform or even on your blog.
So back to your Active Job Posting, click the three Dots on the right, and select Copy Link on the drop-down.
You should then see a notification at the bottom-left indicating that you already have copied the link.
Go to any social media platform and feel free to post your link.
