About the Jobs & Gigs Corner category & Guideline

Looking for someone to join your team or to fulfill a specific Katalon-related work, then you have come to the right place!

A big THANK YOU to our community members for your suggestions and feedback for making space a reality! :heart:

1. What is the Jobs & Gigs category for?

This place is where you can promote paid/unpaid open positions to potential employees and contractors. If you are looking for a Katalon-related job or gig, you can browse through this category for suitable offerings.

There are two types of posts within this category:

Jobs Gigs
A paid full-time/part-time, or even remote position A contractual, temporary or short-term, or even freelancing position and can be either paid or unpaid

:pushpin: Note: Katalon-related jobs/gigs ONLY! This is for the community, by the community! For example, if you are posting for full-time Automation Test Engineer position, then one of the skills requirements should be Katalon-related i.e. Experience with using the Katalon Platform or one of its modules for test orchestration.

2. Posting guidelines

Please make sure that your job/gig ad is well-written and clear, and does not go against our Community Guideline.

2.1. Templates

:point_right: You can follow this template for inspiration when creating a job/gig post. There is no hard restriction regarding your post’s formatting, however. Nevertheless, a good rule of thumb is to include:

  • The available position(s).
  • Job/gig descriptions.
  • Company/Team/Project info.
  • Links to your website.
  • A way to contact you
  • How to apply.

:pushpin: Note: All job/gig posts will be reviewed by our moderators prior to publishing. Any post that does not follow our template will be removed and the OP (original poster) will need to submit another post.

2.2. What happens after my post is approved and published?

Your post will then be visible to any who comes to the Jobs & Gigs category.

Please note that your post will not be displayed on our homepage a.k.a. the Latest page by default, this is to ensure that our homepage is clean and only displays questions and answers about the Katalon Platform.

2.3. What should I do if I have multiple open positions available?

Please proceed to create separate job/gig posts for each open position. This helps both you and our team to manage and respond to offers as they come.

3. (For job/gig seekers) Browsing for jobs/gigs

@albert.vu @vu.tran @mike.verinder

I’m now wondering if users need a way to add “I’m looking for work” to their profiles – some kinda badge or banner?

I’m not sure I like the idea… wondering what others think…

HI there Russ,

Sorry for my late reply.

Interesting point. Although for our forum, the badges are more of a permanent thing i.e. you would get the badge after completing a set of actions or satisfying some requirements.

I think the more suitable workaround would be to create another area where those who are looking for work could come and “advertise” themselves to prospective employers. Let’s see if there is enough request from other members for doing so :+1:

is there space for side hustle/gigs for short/ temporary snd long term

Hi @dineshh,

Could you elaborate a bit more? I am guessing what you meant was a space for people to look for jobs or short-term/freelance positions?
