Edit, or Close Job Requisition

Overview of Editing or Closing a Job Requisition

Follow these steps if you need to:

  • Make changes to an existing job requisition.

  • Freeze a job requisition so that it is currently not available for recruitment. (See Recruiter)

  • Close a job requisition that will no longer be used for recruiting.

Please note that there is a difference between Closing and Freezing a Job Requisition. Closing a Job Requisition closes it permanently, where as a Frozen Job Requisition is not a permanent action and can be undone.
