Note: If you are a user with Job Admin permission levels and your organization has restricted job creation to template jobs for all Job Admins, you will be sent directly to the Copy an Existing Job page where you can only see template jobs where you have been granted access.

Request Approval

Be aware that a created job does not necessarily mean that it is open to start recruiting candidates. If a job requires another user's approval, you will need to request a job approval before the job is opened. Jobs that have yet to receive approval will be considered a Draft.

To request approval for a new job, click Request Approval from a job page's navigation bar.


Depending on how your approval flow is configured, users who are authorized to be job approvers will be notified. The job will be considered Open after all necessary approvals are received
