Customize A Job
The Workflow, Team, Refer and Advertise tabs of a job are additional features of your job that can optionally be edited but are not essential, as your job post and application are.
Manage this job's workflow on the Workflow tab.
Remember that if your job is posted, there is already a workflow template that you selected on the Post tab unless it's unlocked first. To make changes after you have posted the job, you can either:
- Edit the template - this may affect other jobs using the same template
- Unlock this job from the workflow - a job-specific workflow will then be created which allows you to make changes to this job's workflow only
Decide which users should be part of the Hiring Team for this job on the Team tab.
Invite your team to refer candidates for your job via the Refer tab, the following ways:
- Send emails to specific users asking for referrals on either one individual job or all jobs in your account.
- Spread the word from one of the social media platforms on the right-hand side
- Create a job link to share this job to any website
At the bottom of this page, track your referrals that have applied
On the Advertise tab, manage your job's syndication.
Consider sponsoring your job via one of the Paid Job Boards, or review the list of Free Job Boards. You can also send your job to social media outlets via the "Social Networks" section and create a Custom Job Link to post your job on different websites!
Edit an Open Job
After you have posted your job, you have the ability to make updates.
First, navigate to the Jobs page, then click into the job you wish to edit. In the top right-hand corner, click the Edit Job button and you will see the same page you saw when you posted the job that includes the Post, Application, Workflow, Team, Refer, and Advertise tabs.

Jobs can take up to 48 hours to syndicate to the free job boards. If you don't see your job after 48 hours of posting, contact email@example.com.
Can I leave job-level notes or attachments?
Notes can be input in our "Internal Notes" field in the Sensitive Data area of the Post tab. We don't have the ability to add attachments at the job level.
How can I make sure my jobs get on Indeed's organic feed?
Can I edit a job after I post it?
Yes, click the job title from the Jobs page and then Edit Job. Any edits will refresh on the job boards the within the next 24 - 48 hours.

How do I remove a job from the free job boards?
Put it into any status other than "Open" and it should be removed from job boards within 24 - 48 hours. Some paid postings, however, need to be manually removed. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you change your job status and it still appears on job board(s).
