To change the status of your job:
- Visit employers.indeed.com and log in.
- Click "Jobs" at the top of the page.
- Click on the "Status" of the job on the right-hand side of the page.
- Select the desired status (open, paused, closed) from the drop-down menu.
Job statuses are an important tool for organizing your hiring efforts and managing your recruitment spending (if your listing is a Sponsored Job). You can change the status of your Sponsored Job posting at any time on Indeed from the “jobs” tab of your employer dashboard by clicking “status” and choosing a new option from the drop-down menu.
What the statuses mean:
Open - Your job appears in search results and – if your listing is a Sponsored Job – draws from your budget to pay for more visibility to help you get more applications.
Paused - Your job is removed from search results until you unpause or close it, but remains visible in your jobs dashboard. If you are receiving a lot of applications, pausing your job is like tapping the brakes while you review the candidates you already have.
Closed - Your job is removed from both search results and your “Jobs” dashboard and archived for future reference. Close a job if you make a hire, or no longer need to fill the position.
