A job posting is a notice that you're looking to hire candidates for a particular position. A job posting typically describes the nature of the job, the kind of responsibilities the position entails and the typical skills the company expects from the person in that position. A job posting can have specific statuses, which denote its visibility. For instance, a job posting that is published internally will not be visible on your career site but your employees will be able to view it on the employee portal and refer candidates to it.

Statuses of a job posting

A job posting can be published globally or only to internal employees or restricted to just the hiring manager and hiring panel members, based on the status you choose.

  • Publish:
    • Publishes the "Job posting" to the career site. Once published, this job posting will be visible in both employee portal and career site to collect applications from everyone.
  • Save and publish internally:
    • Shows the "Job posting" only to the internal employees for referring candidates. Industry best practice is to open the job posting internally first and then publish it to the world at large.
  • Save and make private:
    • Shows the "Job posting" only to the hiring panel members i.e. hiring manager and the list of employees added under the hiring panel. Ideal if you're hiring for someone in the C-level suite and you'd like to keep the search private.
  • Save it as a draft - The perfect status if your job posting form needs some information that you're not familiar with or you need someone to approve the posting.
