How do I enter the details of my prepaid slots packages and prepaid unlimited jobs packages?
First, expand down the top area that says "Show Slots & Unlimited Package Buy Details." Then you can choose your site, for example if you choose "Linkedin - Slots" you'll be prompted to enter a price per slot and a number of slots, as well as a Start Date and an End Date. Once you enter and save those details you then just need to assign your slots to your below campaigns - if you have 100 slots, you'll want to assign 100 to your below campaigns to insure full utilization. Once you're set up, that's it, the system will always be slotting in your newest and best jobs in each campaign that you specify. To launch an unlimited-postings package buy just put in the overall price, start date and end date, and all your jobs will be auto-tagged/tracked, and distributed to the job site in question for placement.
What jobs get slotted in, if for example I have a 20 job campaign, and I assign 10 job slots to that campaign?
The 10 newest jobs will be slotted in, automatically at any given time. This means that when a new job gets posted, that gets slotted to job board in question, and the oldest of the 10 currently slotted-jobs drops out. Based on our tracking-to-hire data this is the best approach for a multitude of reasons: Reason number 1, is that newly posted jobs naturally get the most attention from candidates. Another critical reason, is that when we look at our tracking-to-hire data, the applicants that get hired are much more likely to be the early-applicants for any job - the applicants that apply very early in the life of a job, within a couple of days of the initial posting date. This is likely related to the fact that early applicants are considered by hiring managers for the longest amount of time, and especially very early on, when they are choosing which applicants to interview. As the job ages, hiring managers may already be deciding between 3 final-round applicants, and so new applications collected toward the end of a job's natural lifespan could be highly qualified candidates, but ultimately ignored and not truly considered for the opening - which wastes talent acquisition dollars while disappointing those late applicants that never really had a fighting chance of being hired.
How can I tell when my slots are being fully utilized?
At the top in the "package buy details" area, you can see the utilized percentage for any slot buy - to edit the slot allotments by campaign, you'll need do do so below, within each individual campaign.
Is this feature an automatic set-it-and-forget-it type of feature?
Yes, this is a "smart" feature meaning that it can constantly make changes on your behalf, always slotting in the right jobs over time and without any of your own manual effort to do so. The ideal use for this feature is, setting it up once, right at the start of the year, and then sitting back to enjoy automatic full-utilization, with the exact right jobs always being slotted in, every day of the week from that point onward.
Why do "unlimited" packages show up in each campaign?
For unlimited buys, we're always sending every job, but we're also tagging it for you automatically, campaign-by-campaign. This is important for later on when you look at your data and what really worked for all the things you truly care about (as expressed by your campaign structure.) Ultimately, who cares if a package buy has a "low CPA" if you have no idea what jobs people are applying to and if those jobs actually matter to you or not in terms of your talent acquisition goals. What this feature automatically does, is pull in the relevant data, campaign by campaign so you can see how that unlimited package did for your call center jobs, your sales jobs, your IT jobs, whatever campaign view you're looking to analyze in your reporting.
