Creating a Job Opening

Note: Before digging deep into the creation process let's keep in mind that any requisition which was created and approved can also become a Job Opening. 

To create a Job Opening follow these quick steps:

  3. Fill in the mandatory fields, which are:
    • Job Opening title (publicly visible)
    • Opening date
    • Recruitment Pipeline: you will need to pick a pipeline that has been created in advance 
    • Auto-linking of Applicants: Turn on the switcher to automatically link applicants to the relevant job opening they applied for
      • If an applicant's email address matches an existing candidate in the system, and that candidate is already assigned to the same active job opening, the applicant will not be automatically linked
    • Position: select the position the hiring process should start from. Make sure the Position is created in advance in the Settings → Company Structure → Positions

Tip: You might want to add a Job Description and Skills which will allow your applicants to find out more details and specifics about the position they are applying for. Here you can select a Job Opening template which needs to be created beforehand

Important

  • If you wish to make the newly created Job Opening accessible from your company's Public page then hurry up to activate the Post in Public Page switcher in the Public Settings section.

  • Enable Notify Applicant(s) to send an email notification directly to any external applicants who have already applied for the job opening.
  • Choose the specific information you want to display on the public job opening page from the Public JO Fields dropdown list. This can include details like opening date, closing date, and position title.
    • Contract type, Employment type, and Location are already included by default.
