job postings and links

  • Question
  • Updated 5 years ago
Are the job posting emails operating as intended in making users read the subject (with minimal information otherwise) and click on the link, going to the site for every job posting?
This is a pretty large time-sink with little reward, as we can't choose or filter based on location or other points of information. If the idea is to drive traffic for job postings, at very least the location would help users out a ton.

Great work overall, and it's also cool to have such an open and dedicated staff.

Hi,

There is an issue with the job post emails right now. They are supposed to include the full job posting in the email.

We're working to fix this, and it should be working soon.

As for subscribing to receive job posting emails based on location, I'll look into that.

Thanks!

Now the job post emails include the contents, but the value for each field starts on a new line. Instead, many or all values could start on the same line as the field label.

Has this ever been fixed? The emails that I get via gmail still have no content...just a subject line.

Hi. We have moved out job board to Coroflot, so there should no longer be job board email notifications going out.

When was the last one you received, and what was the subject/content?
