Managing Your Jobs

In your "My Current Jobs" dashboard pane, you can click on any job to view it. 


Top Profile: Shows the general info about the job like location and assigned resources like Recruiter and Sales person.

Submittals tab: Shows Candidates submitted to the job that are in statuses designated as viewable.

Internal/Web Description tabs: Shows the internal job description (if applicable) and public job description.

User Defined tab: Shows any custom job fields that have been created.

Managing Submittals

There are some actions you can take when viewing Applicants submitted to your jobs. **Depending on your security, you may see some, all or none of these in your view.

Action buttons include Export Submittals to XLS, View Resume, and View Submittal (history).


Once an Applicant reaches the "Submitted to Client" status, additional option buttons will appear for the Hiring Manager to take action on that person.

They are: 

Clicking Recommend Hire will send an email notification to the Recruiter(s) that an Applicant has been accepted. This does change the submittal status to your Hired or Accepted status.

Clicking Decline will mark the Applicant as Declined/Rejected.

Clicking Mark In Review will put a callout icon on this Applicant in the Recruiter view to indicate they are being reviewed.

Clicking Unmark In Review once the Candidate is finished being reviewed. The callout icon will disappear from the Recruiters view.


How to Create a Job 

If your security allows you to create a new job:

  1. Hover your mouse over the Jobs module in the gray bar. Click Create. You will be brought to the job form to complete.
  2. The top portion is the job information and green fields are required fields. Entering a job postal code is optional but highly suggested.image2016-7-29_9_35_17.png
  3. The next section is where you enter the Fee Structure (optional) and Required Skills for the job (required).  There is a second Optional Skills box as well (optional). image2016-7-29_9_37_56.png
  4. You can now add the job description. There are two description boxes:
    1. The top one is for Internal posting only. If you do not have an employee portal, you can disregard this box.
    2. The bottom one is the External/Public description. This is the most commonly used option.

There are various formatting buttons to assist with adding bullets, selecting font styles, format, color and size.  There is also a copy from Word option where you can paste in the description copied from a Word document (icon looks like a clipboard with a "W" on it).

Once you are finished, click Save.


Approving Timesheets

If you are not using timecards, you do not need to read this section! If you are using timecards and will need to approve timesheets, please continue reading.

  1. At the top of the screen there is an "Approve Timesheets" option. All timesheets submitted to the hiring manager waiting for approval will be shown there and can be filtered using the Timecard Start Date dropdown (top).
  2. Click on a name to view the timecard. MenuBar.png
