Difference Between Position Statuses
BizMerlinHR enables you to post a position with one of three statuses: Not Published, Published Internally, or Published Publicly. The following paragraphs explain the functioning of each of the three position statuses.
A Not Published position is a position that is saved but not yet published. When you create any position, it is initially in the “Not Published” status. Afterwards you can make the decision to publish ‘internally or publicly’. Not Published positions can be viewed via the position homepage with the specific “Not Published” sticker (refer image below).
When a position is set for internal use only, it should be Published Internally. Internal positions are not published anywhere externally, so you will not receive any external applicants for these positions.
The purpose of publishing a job “internally” is to source applicants from within your existing workforce. If an approval flow is associated with the position, then you are unable to publish the position until the position is fully approved. After approval, you can publish that job internally (or publicly).
To publish the job internally, please do the following:
- Open the position by clicking on it’s name. Go to the Actions tab.
- Click on the “Publish (Internal)” option.
- After clicking on it, the job will be published internally.
When a position is set publicly, then it will be published across external third party job portals that the system is integrated with. Candidates will be able to find your published job and submit applications. A published job is visible for candidates on your BizMerlinHR Job Board.
To publish the job publicly, please do the following:
- Open the position by clicking on it’s name.
- Go to the Actions tab.
- Click on the Publish (Public) option.
- After clicking on it, the job will be published publicly.
