Edit job ad


If you need to update a job's ad(s), you can do so from either the Jobs list, or that job's profile.

Edit the default ad

  • SmartStart
  • or
  • SmartRecruit

To edit a job's default ad:

  1. Click Jobs at the top of SmartRecruiters.
  2. Find the job in the Jobs list. 
  3. Select Edit Job from the actions menu:JobsList_Dropdown.png
  4. Go through the Job Posting wizard and make changes. 

This method also works for jobs with only one ad.

Edit a job's additional ads

To edit an ad other than the primary ad:

Included in:
  • SmartRecruit
  1. Click Jobs at the top of SmartRecruiters.
  2. Find and click on the name of the job in the Jobs list. 
  3. Click the Job Ad tab.JobProfile_top.png
  4. Find the additional ad in the list, and click Edit.EditAdditionalAd.png
  5. Go through the Job Editing wizard and make changes. JobWizard_EditAddtlAd.pngSince most of the job's details are associated with its default ad, you will only be able to edit the text of an additional ad and then purchase paid job postings on the Advertise page.

You can also use this method to edit the default ad: just click Edit Job for that ad. 

Editing a posted job ad

You can edit and republish a job in SmartRecruiters at any time, and changes will be automatically reflected on the default job ad. However, your external posts on the job boards will not be automatically updated if you edit your job. You'll need to republish or repost the ad.

  • For jobs posted to the free job aggregators, you can simply republish the ad
  • Paid boards will most likely charge you again for reposting an edited ad (as this is treated as creating another post). You can either purchase a new post in SmartRecruiters or contact the board(s) to ask them to update the posted ad.

Always double-check your job ads for accuracy and grammar before purchasing posts on paid boards.
