The job posting and job requisition are two commonly used forms in the hiring process. Creating and managing requisitions is available via Hiring Plan. Below are the main differentiation points between a job and a requisition.
A job posting
- Is the job listing you create and either publish to your careers page and job boards for candidates to apply or use it internally.
- Describes the elements of the job - knowledge, responsibilities, and requirements applicants will need to possess.
- Can be linked to more than one requisitions.
- Can be updated anytime even after it is published.
A job requisition
- Is an internal request hiring managers use to formally ask if they can hire a new employee on their team. The request will be reviewed by the HR team or leadership for final approval.
- Contains information like Salary range, Plan date, and Reason that can be used for reporting.
- Is associated with each candidate you create an offer or you move to the Hired stage.
- Is typically created before you publish a job publicly.
- Cannot exist standalone without an associated job. Once you create a new requisition you can link it to a new or existing job.
- Will inherit the name, department, and location from the associated job. If you changed one or more of these fields in the job and you wish to reflect the changes in the requisition contact us for assistance.
- A requisition can only be attached to one job, whereas a job can be linked to more than one requisitions.
- When a job is deleted the associated requisition is deleted as well while the opposite is not the case. Requisitions are hard deleted from our system so they will be irrecoverable.
