Create an Employer/Organization Profile

Creating an Organization 

An employer initially creating their organization in Western Connect will provide the full name of their company. 

Creating a Division 

Divisions are used to separate hiring units within the same organization. For example, Company XYZ has offices with hiring units on both the east and west coast. Therefore, there are 2 separate divisions under this organization: East Coast and West Coast. The east coast staff will create employer profiles under the East Coast Division, and the west coast staff will create profiles under the West Coast Division. 

If an organization has only one Division, the Division name will be the same as the organization name. 

Creating an Employer Profile 

An employer profile will provide full organization contact details, including an email with a valid domain associated with their organization. Employer emails that have a generic domain (hotmail, gmail, yahoo etc.) or are missing pertinent details will be contacted to validate the authenticity of their account.
