Add Job Details and Hiring Team

Now that you’ve created your new job's ad, you can fill in more details for optimizing your job's performance on job boards, and assigning a hiring team.

Board performance fields

The Board Performance fields gather the minimum amount of information required by the various job boards so that when you post your job, they can correctly categorize the job and place it in the appropriate place in their listings.

To maximize the success of your job ads on the boards, try to be as accurate as possible when selecting values for these fields.

Hiring team

Hiring is a team effort! When you create a job, you can add people to the hiring team on the Hiring Team step of the Job Positing Wizard and assign them a hiring team role, which will determine their level of access to the job and its candidates, and the actions they can take.

Hiring team roles

SmartRecruiters has five default roles, which determine (and limit) the candidate information that each team member can see, and the actions that each member can take during the hiring process.

Type Access and Permissions
Executive Executive users have full access to the job and candidates who apply to the job, and can perform all job and candidate actions without restriction. However, Basic or Employee users who are assigned Executive roles can't edit the job, purchase assessments, or spend in the store.
Hiring Manager Hiring Managers also have full access to the job and candidates who apply to the job, and can perform all job and candidate actions without restriction. Basic or Employee users who are assigned Hiring Manager roles can't edit the job, purchase assessments, or spend in the store.
Recruiter Recruiters also have full access to the job and candidates who apply to the job, and can perform all job and candidate actions without restriction. Basic or Employee users who are assigned Recruiter roles can't edit the job, purchase assessments, or spend in the store.
Coordinator Coordinators have full access to the jobs they've been assigned to, but have limited access to candidates who apply to that job. They can't advance candidates through the hiring process, extend offers, or reject.
Interviewer An Interviewer has the most limited level of access. They're just able to view candidates' profiles and resumes, and rate and compare candidates.

By default, when someone creates a job, SmartRecruiters will add them to the hiring team with a Hiring Manager role.

  • Add other members by searching for them by name or email, then select a hiring role.
  • You can add more members and change roles after you create the job.

Learn more about the permissions and actions allowed to each hiring team role.

Post the job

Click Publish to publish the job and its ad. It will become publicly accessible, and you'll be able to purchase paid ads for the job on many job boards in the next step.

By default, SmartRecruiters will also publish your job's ad to the major (free) job aggregators, including Indeed, SimplyHired, Glassdoor, Google Jobs, and more. If, for some reason, you'd prefer not to post your job for free, you can uncheck Also distribute this job to the major aggregators.

Jobs submitted through SmartRecruiters to the free job aggregators usually go live on the aggregators' feeds within 24 to 48 hours

In general, the majority of jobs submitted to job boards through SmartRecruiters are 30-day listings, especially for the free job aggregator boards. After this period ends, boards and aggregators will drop the job from their feed unless you republish the job.

Be careful not to repost/republish your your jobs to the free aggregators too frequently. Aggregators may blacklist your jobs or bury them farther down the results if you republish jobs before the listing expires.

Depending on the on the type of package you purchased through SmartRecruiters, your jobs' lifetime on a paid board may vary.
