This allows you to benefit from additional reach thanks to the data-driven display of your Job Ads on social media channels such as Facebook and Instagram as well as the Google Display network and other job exchanges such as talent.com, Jobrapido and StellenOnline.

English text can be entered in the individual sections of the Job Ad. However, the language of the headings (About us, Your profile, etc.) is determined by the language selected in your tool.
