To create a job posting, begin on your job posting home page and click the blue “+Add job posting” button in the upper right hand corner.
Who can create a job posting?
Users with the access role of Super Admin, Admin, and Team Member can create new job postings, and edit all fields on those job postings during creation.
How do I create a new job posting?
Begin by filling in the job posting Title, Location, Department / team, Commitment, Owner, Hiring Manager, and Followers.
Next, you’ll have the opportunity to choose whether this job posting should be External, Internal, External & Internal, or Unlisted. This will allow you to decide which audience can view the job posting. If you simply click the “X” button on the upper left hand corner of the job posting, it will save your work as a Draft job posting.
After filling in the job description, you’ll also have the opportunity to customize the Custom Application Questions, Internal Notes, and Interview Process.
How do I get approval for my new job posting?
An Admin or Super Admin can set up approvals for your job postings in your Approval Settings page. If approvals have been established, then when clicking the blue “Next” button in the upper right hand corner of the job posting, you’ll be brought to the pre-established job posting approval workflow.
Add an optional note to the approval and click “Request approval” to send it away! Your approvers will receive an email with the details of the job posting so that they can approve it. Alternatively, if your approvers are Team Members, Admins, or Super Admins, they can approve the new job posting in-app.
Once all approvals have been received, you’ll be able to go to the next screen to complete the job posting workflow.
How do I publish my job posting to job boards?
Your job posting is live. Throw the confetti! Now, back to business.
To publish your job posting to job boards, you can click the “Add a job board” button at the bottom of the third and final step within your job posting creation workflow. If you’d like to post all external job postings directly to LinkedIn or Glassdoor, your account’s Super Admin can set this up within your Integration Settings. Internal-Only and Unlisted jobs will not be sent to job boards in any situation.
Lastly, you can now click to view your external job posting on your Lever-hosted jobs site, or to edit the posting to make changes. If you use the Lever Postings API to publish your jobs directly onto your company’s website, you should now see your job posting live there (assuming you set the job posting’s status as “External”, and not “Unlisted”!).
Who can edit a job posting?
As a Super Admin, Admin, or Team Member, you may edit the following fields on any posting:
- Job description
- Custom questions
- Internal notes
- Job boards
You must be a Super Admin or a user with the explicit "Change job posting categories, owner, and hiring manager" permission in order to change the following fields after a posting is published:
- Department and team
- Work type
- Hiring manager
If you do not have the explicit "Change job posting categories, owner, and hiring manager" permission but are the job posting's Owner or Hiring Manager, you can edit either stakeholder field (Owner and Hiring Manager). If you attempt to remove yourself from being an Owner or Hiring Manager, you will receive a confirmation message before doing so.
After removing yourself from being an Owner or Hiring Manager, you will no longer be able to edit any Stakeholder fields:
