Advert content is limited by some job boards.
The Job Board SEEK for example, limits your advert length to 5000 characters.
Advert content can include hyperlinks, fonts and formatting.
These elements are added by hidden HTML tags.
Job boards count the advert content and HTML when counting the number of characters in your advert.
To count the number of characters in the advert
- Open the advert editor
- Select source button on the toolbar
- Copy the content
- Paste it in word
- Check the word count
Removing HTML code from your advert
- Open the advert content editor for the job
- Copy the ad
- Use the paste from word icon in the toolbar
- Paste in the pop up
If I make a change to my advert – how long does it take until it goes on SEEK?
All edits to existing SEEK adverts within Perform Zone will appear live a few minutes after each hour.
