Job posting guidelines

When posting a job, please make sure that your job has clear and complete titles and descriptions, includes the actual name of your company, and is posted in the city where the job will be located. Each job should be posted only once and should describe a specific position open in your company, as such we do not allow generic or vague recruiting messages. All relevant information about the job such as hours, pay structure, and required licenses should be clearly identified in the description.

The job offer must not require any form of payment from the job seeker or be discriminatory in nature.

Additionally, we do not allow the following type of postings:

- Career fairs
- Franchise or training opportunities
- Multi-level-marketing positions
- DriversPost may modify, reject, or remove any job postings for any or no reason.
