External Job Posts


How your organization interacts with external candidates can differ drastically with how you interact with internal candidates (i.e. candidates already in your organization). Components such as questions asked, type of information required from the candidate, job post, etc... may not necessarily overlap between both sets of candidates. 

Greenhouse Recruiting allows your organization to manage your external job posts and internal job posts separately. This will let you take all of the configuration of a job post - name, location, language, description, questions, thank you for applying, etc. - and have it be completely distinct between the external and internal post on a job. In this article, we will cover:

Note: To create an external job post, your organization will need to have already configured an external job board.  


Create External Job Post (New Job Workflow)

If the Job Post step is enabled for job setup flow, users will be prompted to configure a job post when creating a new job in Greenhouse Recruiting.


From the Job Post configuration page, fill in the appropriate details of the job post (keeping in mind an audience of external candidates). 

Navigate to the Post To field and select an external job board from the dropdown menu.


When finished configuring the external job post, continue with the job setup flow. Once the job is approved for recruiting, navigate to Job > Job Setup > Job Post and toggle the Status button to LIVE.


Your job post is now live on your external job board. 


Add External Job Post to Existing Job

To create an external job post for an existing job, navigate to a job by clicking the All Jobs tab from the navigation bar and selecting a job from the subsequent list.


From the Job page, click Job Setup and navigate to Job Posts on the left-hand panel.


Navigate to the Job Posts panel and click Add Job Post. Alternatively, click the ellipsis and select Duplicate to easily create copies of other job posts.

Note: A single post can only be related to one job board at a time, but there is no limit to how many times a single job can be posted to a board (either internal or external).


From the subsequent page, edit the details of the job post to suit an external audience. Navigate to the Post To field and select an external job board from the dropdown menu. Click Save when finished.


When finished, the new job post will appear in Job Posts panel. Toggle the Status button to Live.
