All jobs begin life as 'draft' but dream of achieving 'filled'

A job's status is one of those boring-but-important kind of things. Let's take a closer look and you'll soon see why that is so very true.


When a job is first created, its status is set to draft by default.
When in draft status, a job's details - all of them - can be freely edited.
However, you can't share a draft job and therefore can't receive candidate responses.

Jobs in draft status can have their status changed to open, closed, or even filled

From draft to filled? Yes, in those rare cases when you've found the right candidates before you've even gotten to the point of using Talentology. Crazy.


The open status is a special one: When your job's status is set to open, your hiring team can receive candidate responses for that job. And, when your job's status is open, it counts as an 'active' job (for billing purposes) in your Talentology account. 

Jobs in open status can have their status changed to closed (manually) or filled.

By default, jobs are in open status for up to 30 days; after that, they expire and their status is automatically set to closed. Which conveniently leads us to...


Over time you'll have lots of jobs in closed status - or likely even more in filled status. When a job's in closed status your team can continue to evaluate the results from candidates - including marking as unsuitable or shortlisting, too - just as you did when the job was open. 

However, when a job is in closed status, your team will no longer receive results from new candidates. 

Jobs in closed status can have their status changed to filled. That's it - though we'll see what other options are available later :) 


The holy grail of statuses? A bit much, maybe, but let's go with it.
Jobs in filled status remain in filled status. 

If a candidate visits your job link, he or she will see that the job has been filled.
