If the hiring team has a group of viable candidates for a position, waiting on a particular candidate's background check, or received an influx of applicants to process, the job status can be changed to Paused. Pausing a job can be done by an Account Administrator or any user with permissions that is assigned to the hiring team. Once a job is Paused, it will remain active in your Jobs tab so the remaining applicants can be processed.
Follow these steps to pause a job:
- Select the Jobs tab from the menu.
- Select the Job Title by clicking on the name.
- Click the Job Status drop-down and select Pause.
- Confirm you'd like to Pause the job by clicking Yes, pause this job.
Pausing the position will remove the posting from job boards and your Career Site, but you may continue to process existing job applicants. Paused jobs should be considered temporary and not used indefinitely. It is recommended that after a position has been Paused for a short time users Reactivate a Paused Job. Once the position has been paused for a few months or longer, it is recommended to Close the job and begin recruiting again for the same position with a fresh job posting.
Note: When applicants attempt to apply using a link to a job that is paused or closed, they will receive a notification the position is no longer active. A member of the hiring team is able to Invite to Job
