Retain Closed Jobs On Career Site

Retaining closed jobs on the careers site

Retaining closed jobs on the careers site is to provide transparency and maintain a historical record of past job openings within your organization. By keeping closed job listings visible, it demonstrates your company's hiring activity and growth over time.

Key Benefits

Employer Branding:
Displaying closed job listings showcases your organization's hiring momentum and commitment to expanding its workforce, which can positively impact your employer brand and attract potential candidates.
Candidate Experience:
Candidates who previously applied for a closed position can track the status of their application and understand when a role has been filled, fostering transparency and trust in your recruitment process.
Analytical Insights:
Retaining closed job data can provide valuable insights for analyzing hiring trends, candidate sourcing strategies, and recruitment metrics over time.

When publishing a job opening to your career site, you have the option to keep the posting visible even after it has been closed. Any of the below highlighted statuses can be considered as closed,
  1. Filled
  2. Cancelled
  3. Declined
  4. Inactive
  5. Any other custom status to indicate that the job is closed

How it Works

 1. Steps to Enable Closed Job Retention When Posting 

  1. Navigate to the Job Opening module
  2. Click on a job opening record you want to publish.
  3. Click on the Publish to Career Site option.
  4. In the interface that appears, there is a toggle button to enable showing filled/closed/unpublished jobs on the career site.
  5. Toggle that option on if you want to retain closed jobs on the site.

  1. Proceed to complete the other fields (application form, assessment, etc.) as needed.
  2. Click the Publish button to publish the job opening with the chosen settings.
If you choose to publish on both the career site and job board, and then select the career site option, you will receive a pop-up as depicted below.

2.  Steps to Enable Closed Job Retention After Posting

  2. Locate and enable the toggle button for keep on career site.

Viewing Retained Closed Job Listings 

Once published, closed jobs will appear on your career site. To view them,
  1. Navigate to Job Openings.
  2. In the Filters section, apply the Keep on career site filter.

This Keep on Career site filters the the list of jobs where the retain on career site after closure/unpublish option is activated.

Receive Notifications for Changes in Job Preferences 

When creating a workflow or automation rule in Zoho Recruit for job openings, one of the options is to trigger the rule when the Keep on Career Site field is updated for a particular job opening record. Get notified when the preference/option to retain a job on the careers site is modified or opted out.
