These words alone lack meaning without understanding! Let's break them down for you! 😜

From TEMPLATES:

When a job is set to PUBLISHED it means that the job was set to ACTIVE on the jobs page when the job was originally created

When a job is set to UNPUBLISHED it means that the job was set to OFF on the jobs page when the job was originally created

When a job is set to DRAFT it means that the job is not visible on the jobs page at all and is only visible from your templates page. You might use the draft feature if you are still in the process of writing or editing your job post.

*NOTE: You can have a job set to UNPUBLISHED from your templates page but is currently set to ACTIVE on your jobs page. Or a job can be set to PUBLISH from your templates page but is currently set to OFF on your jobs page. 

If you want to turn a job on/off you can do so from your JOBS page!

The aforementioned information is also useful if you operate multiple units. Setting a template to “UNPUBLISHED” will turn the job to “OFF” at all locations that the job is deployed to in just a couple of clicks vs. clicking “off” on every job on the jobs page. The same is true when setting a job to "active".  You can activate the job at all locations by setting the template to “PUBLISHED”.

From JOBS:

When a job is set to ACTIVE on the jobs page it means that the job is live and integrated with our partner sites like Indeed, ZipRecruiter, GoogleJobs, etc. (external sites) AND is live on the HigherMe job board, Text-To-Apply signs, and company page URL (internal).

When a job is set to PASSIVE on the jobs page it means that the job is live on the HigherMe job board, Text-To-Apply signs, and company page URL (internal only).

When a job is set to OFF it means the job is not visible to candidates and no one can apply.

*Note: It can take up to 24 hours for applications to start appearing once a job is set to ACTIVE.
