Post a Job

Changing my Job Status

You can change the status of your Sponsored Job posting at any time on Indeed. If you have enough candidates - or you make a hire - you can pause or close your job. You can also re-open your job at any time. Your change will reflect almost immediately.


To change your Sponsored Job's status:

  1. Visit and click the Employer link at the top of the page, then sign in.
  2. Click "Jobs" at the top of the page.
  3. Click on the "Status" of the job on the right-hand side of the page.
  4. Select the status (open, paused, closed) you would like to update your job to from the drop-down menu.

Open - You want the job to appear in search results and begin spending the budget.

Paused - You want the job removed from the search results, but to remain visible on the jobs dashboard.

Closed - You want the job removed from the search results and removed from the jobs dashboard. The job will be archived for future reference.

Tip: If your job is closed and you are looking to re-open it, first you will need to click the "show closed" link in the upper right-hand corner of the page.
