EMPLOYER FAQs: Does HireVeterans.com Accept XML Feeds to Post Jobs?

As part of the full-membership, HireVeterans.com accepts XML files to post jobs

 

So if you have an XML file (see example), just provide the URL and we will enter it into our admin panel on the backend and set it up for you with an automatic update every 48 hours.

  3. Does your system support HTML in the job description and job requirement fields? If so, which tags?
  4. Can you provide us with a list of all possible job post fields?
  5. In the case of fields like job category or job type, can you provide us with a list of all possible values for those fields?
