Release: 16.1

View As PDF

Overview

The Job Library enables users to create templates for jobs and save them for future use within the iCIMS Talent Platform. Job Templates differ from active jobs in that active jobs can be posted to recruit new candidates whereas Job Templates are stored in the Job Library for later reference.
 
Most Platform users can have access to the Job Library. Recruiters may find the Job Library helpful when posting the same job frequently. Instead of creating an entirely new requisition for each new job posting, recruiters can use a job template to post each new job with just a few clicks.

This article describes the process of using an existing template to create a new job. For steps to create a new job template, please see Creating and Editing Job Templates
