Edit a job offer and refresh its publication date πŸ“†

Table of contents

    1 - Edit a published job posting  

    Edit the job description and other fields  

    It is of course possible to edit, and restructure a job posting even if it has been published (for instance if missions change, if you have constructive feedback from candidates...).

    To edit a job posting, go to the ATS dashboard  and click on your offer. Once on the pipeline, click on Edit, then you can navigate into the job creation form to update the information you need: 

    πŸ’‘ All the modifications made will appear a few minutes after saving the offer. We advise you to empty your browser cache (SHIFT + F5 for Windows or CMD + SHIFT + R for MAC) to see the latest version of your offer correctly. 


    If you have used Markdown syntax to put items in bold, title, italics, and you see mistakes; check that there are no spaces before the asterisks "*" : everything is precisely described in this article.


    Modify a job offer's URL 

    The title of an offer is directly linked to its URL. If you have modified the title of an offer, the old URL will stay live to avoid 404 errors (redirection errors).

    For example, if you edit an old offer to use it for a new job : From "Sales manager" to  "Intern in Marketing", the URL of the new job will not be related.

    ⚠️ You cannot change the URL of a job that is already published!

    To modify the URL, you have to clone the offer, and EDIT the title before saving it. Then, click on "Save & Preview" to obtain the new URL address.

    Please watch the GIF below to understand what you should do:

    Change the "Who are they" section of a job offer

    By default the description of the company in your offers within Welcome to the Jungle is the same description you have in your organization profile.

    But for specific cases, you can use Welcome to the Jungle Solutions ATS to edit the description for a specific offer.

    From Welcome to the Jungle Solutions ATS, to customize the description of a given offer, go to the editing form and click on the toggle button: "Write a custom company description for this job ".

    Once the description is added, click on " Update" and the new description will be displayed on your job offer.


    2 - Change the status of an offer

    Change the status of a job offer

    To set a job as "draft" or archive it, you have to select the option on the dropdown menu at the bottom right and select the correct action:



    • Set as draft = The offer goes back in the "Active Offers" section but remains invisible for candidates.
    • Publish = The offer goes back in the "Active Offers" section and will be live on Welcome to the Jungle / your Welcome to the Jungle Solutions ATS career website.
    • Archive = The offer is removed from all websites and removed from your "Active Offers".


    Refresh the publication date of a job offer

    To update the offer publication date, you have to change the status from Published to Draft or Archive, and repeat the manipulation in the opposite direction (see screenshot below)! 



     Depending on the period and the offer, we advise you to refresh an offer where you have not yet found the gem approximately every two weeks. 

     βš οΈ You need to find the right balance and not refresh the job offers every day. Candidates who are actively looking for work do not want to see the same job on every search they do, particularly if their profile has not been selected. Posting your offer too often can seriously damage your employer's branding, this is why we recommend a frequency of 15 days 😊.

    However, if you have strategic or urgent hiring requirements, our feature Job booster feature will be better suited to your needs. Your offer will be boosted without any negative impact on your employer brand!

    After several studies, we have observed that candidates are more inclined to click on and apply for a boosted job than a job that is republished regularly.
