When creating a job, managers need to assign certain categorisation to it such as Employment Type, Job Function and Experience Level. These labels can, amongst other things, be used to better organise and structure your jobs, applicants and insights.

You can also create your own categories and departments in Jobylon to further customise the account structure to your organisation and needs.

There are two different types of fields you can create in Jobylon and they are called Categories and Departments.


Lets say you want to be able to categorise your jobs in your own Teams and Regions as described here:


  • Sales

  • Customer Success

  • Engineering

  • Marketing


  • Nordics

  • EMEA

  • APAC

  • Americas

To create your custom Categories, head over to your Company settings here.


Departments are quite similar to custom Categories, with one major difference. A Department can also have a Description and a Location. If needed, you can also change the label of "Departments" to anything you want, lets say "Office".

The advantage with this is that you can pre-define your, for example, Offices in Jobylon and give them a location as well as a description. This data can then be used when creating new jobs. As the Hiring Manager creates a job and assigns the "Stockholm" office to it, the job can automatically receive the right location and even include a description about the Stockholm team and office - further simplifying the work for managers when creating jobs πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

To create your Departments, head over to your Company settings here.

Using your Departments and Categories

When creating new jobs or updating existing ones, you will now notice that Jobylon asks you to also assign your job to the appropriate fields.
