Request approval

Creating a job does not necessarily mean it is open to start recruiting candidates. If a job requires another user's approval, you must request job approval before the job is opened. A job that has yet to receive approval is considered a Draft.

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


Users listed as approvers for the job will be notified of the approval request. The job will be considered Open after all necessary approvals are granted.
