XML Bulk Job Posting Requirements

  Providing an XML feed is the fastest way to post your jobs on Learn4Good.com. Once your feed is ready, submit your jobs or contact us if you have any questions.

The following are some simple guidelines for preparing an XML feed:

  • Please provide the proper character encoding for your feed in the XML header. All content must be UTF-8 encoded.
  • All textual job content must be inside CDATA sections to avoid issues processing your XML feed.
  • The file has one <jobs> tag, and one or more <job> elements. Please see a sample XML feed below.
  • HTML is not supported within the job form fields.

Sample XML Feed

Fields in blue text are required. Other fields are optional but strongly advised for best performance:
