When creating a new job, you have several visibility options: public, internal, confidential, and private. Each option has its own level of visibility and access, so it's important to understand the differences between them.

Public Jobs

Public jobs are the most visible type of job. They are posted externally and can be seen by anyone, both internally and externally. This means that anyone with access to the job posting, whether they are an employee or not, can apply. Public jobs are a great option for positions that need a wide reach and are open to anyone who meets the qualifications.

Internal Jobs

Internal jobs are open to anyone internally within the company. This means that only employees can see the job posting on the internal job board through their employee dashboard. This option is great for positions only open to current employees or for promoting internal growth and development.

Confidential Jobs

Confidential jobs are visible only to people you share the link with. This means that the job posting will not be visible on any job boards or to anyone who does not have the link. However, it's important to note that confidential jobs may still be visible to Pinpoint users with the necessary visibility permissions. This option is ideal for sensitive positions or jobs requiring a more targeted approach to recruiting.

Private Jobs

Private jobs are the most exclusive type of job. They are only visible to candidates you share the link with and will not appear on any job boards or to any pinpoint users unless you have specifically added them.

Private Jobs Permissions

If you do not see the option for Private jobs, you will need to obtain permission to enable this feature. This can easily be done through User Management.

To begin, log into your account and navigate to the User Management page. Once on the User Management page, locate the user who needs permission to create private jobs. Click on their name to access their user profile.

Within the user profile, you will see a tab or link for "Permissions". Click on this to access the permissions page. On the permissions page, you will see a list of all available permissions for this user. Scroll down until you find the option for "Create Private Jobs". Check the box next to this option to grant the user permission to create private jobs.
