Affiliations Guide for Employers and Recruiters

What are “Affiliations”?

Affiliations refer to the ability for Individuals and Employers to become associated with a Magnet Partner (referred to as “Affiliates”).  

A Partner’s Affiliates can receive targeted content that the Partner intends to share only with people who are known to or in some way associated with the organization. “Targeted content” may include Community Messages, Event Notifications, and Job Postings.

How Do Employers/Recruiters Become Affiliated?

Employer and Recruiter accounts automatically become Affiliates of a Partner by signing up or logging in through the Partner’s landing page. Employers and Recruiters can manage their Affiliations through the My Communities page. You can even become Affiliated to other Magnet Partners without having to login through their page.

Becoming an Affiliate of Partner enables you to receive Community Messages from that Partner. If you utilize Magnet’s Recruiting functionality, you will be able to target your postings specifically to a Partner’s community of Job Seekers if the Partner offers that option.

Each individual within an Employer/Recruiter account has unique Affiliation settings – so one member can be Affiliated with a Partner, while another can choose not to be.

How Can I Target a Community’s Job Seeker Affiliates with my Postings?

Partners and their Affiliated Employers and Recruiters can specifically target Job Postings to the Partner’s Affiliate Job Seeker population using a Community Filter. Not all Partners offer this feature.

After completing the minimum requirements of any posting type, you will be directed to the general edit page, where you can edit your Community Filter settings. The Community Filter associated with the landing page you last logged in through will be automatically added to your posting. If you have access to other Community Filters, you can choose to add them to your posting using the drop down menu located in the top right corner of the page.

Any selections made in this filter are automatically treated as a Requirement, meaning that ONLY Individuals who match the criteria will be invited to apply to the posting. The posting will not be visible on the Magnet Job Board. If the Partner has an Affiliate Job Board, the posting will appear there. 

If you select multiple Communities, Individuals must meet at least one of the selections in order to be invited.
