Job Posting Guidelines


The following guidelines will help you develop job content and recruitment practices that are consistent with Worky.ph standards for an optimal job seeker experience. Please note that this list is only a guide and not a comprehensive list of what is allowable or forbidden. There are overlapping Philippine legal laws that also cover job postings, cybercrime, data privacy, anti-illegal recruitment, etc.

Do’s and Dont’s for Worky.ph Job Postings

General Recruitment

  • Use Worky.ph to fill a job, not a pipeline. Each posting should represent a real and currently available job. Pooling for talent can harm your company’s ability to fill jobs in the future if the jobseeker realizes[km1] that this is not an immediate need.
  • Don’t discriminate. Jobs on Worky.ph must be made available to qualified candidates regardless of age, race, gender and sexual orientation.
  • Pay reliably and fairly. Jobs that people find on Worky.ph should have hourly or salaried wages in accordance with the standards set by law. No fees must be charged to the candidate for the job application, interview and hiring process.
  • Make job applications accessible and transparent. Job seekers should not have to set up or navigate through complicated steps to begin the application process.
  • Respect Candidate Privacy. Information gathered in the application process should be shared carefully within your company and never made available to third parties. Personal information is confidential and protected under the Data Privacy Act of 2012 (Rep. Act No. 10173).

Job Titles and Descriptions

  • Don’t use offensive content. If a reasonable person would consider any aspect of your listing inappropriate or offensive, the visibility of your job may be affected.
  • Leave clickbait out of titles. Job titles should be the name of the particular job as it might appear on a business card, with no extra information. Job description is where work location, required degrees and work experience, scope of duties and responsibilities, offered salary, company benefits and other specifics relevant to the job should be detailed.
  • Don’t use job content that isn’t yours. Each job that appears on Worky.ph must be offered by an authorized representative of the company seeking to fill the position.
  • Offer a real job. Worky.ph is a job matching platform. Non-job content including SPAM, SCAMS and other offers will not be shown to job seekers or even reported to the proper authorities. Worky.ph Hire Guarantee is based on fulfilling this condition. For more information, please refer to our Anti-Spamming and Scamming policy.
  • Don’t try to game the system. Like other job platforms, Worky.ph uses algorithms to provide the freshest, most relevant content in response to searches and job seeker activity. Companies that attempt to exploit these principles by reposting or spamming repetitive job postings or roles within a short timeframe or posting roles in more locations than the job is offered for visibility will have the opposite intended effect on the Worky.ph platform. Hire guarantee is essentially void when Worky.ph algorithms and reviews are violated.
  • Be truthful, tell the truth. Provide the true details of your job, including its locations, duties and whether the job is being offered by the hiring company or by a recruiter/headhunter hiring on the company’s behalf.

Types of posts that aren’t generally visible in the results

  • Career Fairs
  • Multi-level marketing positions
  • Franchise or training opportunities

Jobs that don’t meet Worky.ph standards for authenticity and verification algorithm may be subject to review and require additional information from the hiring company. Listings that prove misleading compromise the job seeker experience or those which Worky.ph is not convinced that represents a “real’” job may be made only selectively visible or removed from the search results altogether. Please note: Worky.ph reserves the right to undertake the removal of any job or company posting, organic or sponsored, if such removal is in the best interest of the general public and the Worky.ph community. Worky.ph is committed to providing a safe space for the employers and job seekers.
