Job Functions improve job seekers chances of finding opportunities related to their interests. They also help organizations categorize their listings so that they’ll show up in relevant searches.
If a job seeker types a Job Function term in the keyword search box, listings with that particular Job Function will show up in the search results first.
For example, an organization may assign the following Job Functions to a “Caseworker” position: Case/Social Work, Direct Services, and/or Community Engagement/Outreach. When a job seeker types Direct Services into the keyword search, they will be able to see this listing even if the term “direct services” is only listed as a job function and not written elsewhere in the listing.
