Once you have created and organized your statuses you will work on creating departments and positions. Departments and positions can be as broad or specific as you would like.
Step 1: Departments
Departments will be a single-select option when creating a job. You will need to decide whether you want actual firm departments here or practice groups, or both, that's completely up to you.
Click Settings on the left panel of your account.
In the Job Settings section Click Departments and Positions
You will see a bucket for Departments and one for Positions.
Click the + icon in the Departments bucket to enter a department name
Repeat this process until you have created all of your departments. Remember you can have the departments actually be firm department names or you can enter in practice areas if that makes the most sense for you.

Step 2: Positions
Positions will be a single-select option when creating a job. You can make positions more general such as Summer Associate or more specific like Summer Associate (1L).
Click the + icon in the positions bucket to enter a position name
Repeat this process until you have created all of your departments.
