For all user types except Super Admins, the user can see jobs with the Published and Used Internally statuses. However, the user must be assigned to the job's hiring team to access job details or interact with candidates.
In this example, the hiring pipelines for the "Account executive" and "SEO Specialist" jobs are not visible because the user is not assigned to those jobs. The user cannot see the candidates or any details except for the job title.
External Recruiters can only see the specific jobs they are assigned to and the specific candidates that they have uploaded to the account. They will not see any unassigned jobs at all. If the Talent Pool has been set to be visible to all members, External Recruiters will be able to use it but will only see their own uploaded candidates.
If you aren't sure which type of role to choose for a new account member, refer to this guide on choosing user roles: Which user role should I pick?
