4. Selecting a template
After clicking the add button, another screen will appear asking you to select a template. We haven’t got any templates saved so for our example we’re just using the default.

5. Filling out the job details
After selecting your template, a new screen will appear that allows you to enter all the necessary information about the job. The job title is already filled out as this was specified at the start, but it gives you space to enter a job description and other fields for:

- Skills required (enter up to 10)
- Seniority level (Internship to Director level)
- Employment type (full-time, part-time, etc)
- Job Function (enter up to 3)
- Company industry (enter up to 3)
- Public job (open to anyone) or internal only (work in the organisation already)
6. Defining your hiring team
Once you’ve filled out your job details, the next step is to define your hiring team. If there are multiple people involved in the hiring process then you can add them all here to ensure they’re in the loop and there is visibility throughout the entire process.
7. Creating your customised hiring process
This step is where you can create your own customised hiring process to ensure you have all the information and steps you need before the hire. The default process has 5 steps which are:
Each of these steps can be customised to ensure it works for your organisations hiring process. You can also add a variety of different activities into the process to customise it further.
8. Posting your job advertisement
Now is where you post your job advert. You can post the ad to both a dedicated careers portal, hosted through the Talent app and also to LinkedIn. Posting your job ad to LinkedIn extends the reach and puts it out there to a community of 500+ business professionals. To post the ad, click the activate button in the top right corner, then select the post now button and get ready for candidates to start applying.
So that’s how easy it is to create and post a job advertisement in Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Talent. The whole process can be completed in around 5-10 minutes and help you get the best candidates applying for your organisation.
