Here's some pointers on what to include in each field.
Headline: The headline is an opportunity to grab the attention of Job Seekers with something unique, genuine, or special about spending a season with your company.

Complete "The Scoop" & Contact Info
The Scoop contains basic information that we've found a lot of our Job Seekers want to know before making a commitment to move across the country to spend a season at your Great Place. Be thorough and transparent: it doesn't do anyone any favors to sugar coat the facts. And if you don't have great phone coverage or internet, don't fret! Lots of CoolWorks Job Seekers are excited at the prospect of being able to disconnect.
The Contact Info is how you would like Job Seekers to reach you if they'd like more information. Be as thorough here as you'd like. If you don't want your phone ringing off the hook with questions, feel free to leave some fields blank. You'll have the opportunity to provide more information on How to Apply on your actual Job Posts.
