- If this is a fully remote job, make sure you switch the toggle to ON and include the address of your head office as the location. Location can be mandatory for some job boards so it can’t be left blank, even if the job is remote.

Publish your job
Publish your job right away or click Select job status to post it as an internal/confidential job.
Once you click 'Publish your job' you will see a success page together with the job's publish status:
- Your jobs will be available right away on your Workable careers page
- For free job boards, the job will enter the review queue, where our experienced specialists will check it so that matches the job posting guidelines. The review will usually only take a few hours and will be expedited once your jobs consistently pass the review process.
- Job board initialization steps will be available only via desktop
Standard access users
Once you click 'Publish your job' you will be prompted to send a publish request to an admin user. Once the admin approves the publication request the job will follow the same path as explained above.
Important note for Pay As You Go accounts:
To complete the checkout payment process for your job you will need to access your desktop account. Upon clicking the Publish button, you will be prompted to send an access link to your email to review and publish your job. By clicking the link in your email you will be redirected to a preview page where you can edit or publish the job directly.
Change job status
Change the job status depending on your hiring needs. You can switch back and forth between job statuses. The only exception is that you can't transition from Published to Used Confidentially right away; you will need to make the transition Published -> Used Internally -> Used Confidentially.
You can edit active jobs and click Update to publish the changes. Note: It can take 6-24 hours for the changes to be visible across all job boards. The mobile app only shows job title, location and description fields. The below fields are editable only on desktop:
- Company industry
- Job function
- Employment details
- Annual salary
- Custom questions & custom fields
You can archive your job when the hiring process is over. When archiving a job, candidate data will be kept intact, but candidates will be in 'read-only' mode. It will not be possible to interact with candidate profiles.
Note for Pay As You Go customers:
We're unable to refund the job cost for any days left in your billing cycle. It's advised to archive jobs right before your next billing cycle. For more info check our dedicated FAQ page.
This function will redirect you to People Search - search for skills, job titles or names and People Search automatically scours millions of profiles from multiple data sources in real time.
If you do not wish to be part of the hiring process, remove yourself from the hiring team. By taking this action, you will stop receiving any notifications related to candidates under the position.
