If you’re a SuccessFactors ATS customer you may be looking for ways to customize your SuccessFactors pages. As one TA leader told me:

“I want to complete control of the UI of the job!”

The SuccessFactors ATS, like other ATS’s, is mostly focused on “tracking” (not “attracting”) candidates. As they should be.

Here’s an example of an out-of-the-box SuccessFactors job page:

SuccessFactors ATS job page

The SuccessFactors job description above might struggle to attract some candidates because it:

  • Is text-only
  • Has no branding (logos, company colors, font styling)
  • Has no recruitment videos/images
  • Has no extra job content such as:
    • Location (Map, Walkscore)
    • Recommended/other relevant job openings
    • Employer of choice awards (or Glassdoor Rating)
    • LinkedIn connectability widget
  • Has no Talent Community opt-in

What Is a SuccessFactors ATS Job Page Overlay?

A SuccessFactors job page overlay lets you customize your SuccessFactors job pages.

These overlays (also called “skins” or “templates”) turn your text-only job pages into content-rich marketing pages. And that attracts and convert candidates better.

Here’s a visual on how a job page overlay works:

How To Add Job Page Overlays on Your SuccessFactors Job Pages:

  1. In-house engineers and developers — This takes a ton of planning and coordination but we’ve seen it done before.
  2. Hire a web design agency — The most expensive option but would allow you to fully customize your digital candidate experience.
  3. Integrate your ATS with a job content marketing platform like Ongig or Talent Brew.
