In this article, you will learn how to archive job openings and how to reactivate them, if needed. Use the archiving function to store your data in a different area so that your recruiting area is exclusively reserved for openings that are active. Job openings that have recently been filled can be easily retrieved again if needed.
Archiving a Job Opening
In the recruiting area, first, navigate to the desired opening to deactivate it on your Personio career page. Click on Unpublish to temporarily cancel the job ad.
Don't forget to get in touch with the external job portals on which your opening may also have been published.
In the next step, go to Recruiting > Job openings > View job details and click on Edit on the top right to switch to the editing mode. Scroll down to the bottom and click on Archive.
Before archiving a job opening, you should ensure that all remaining applicants in the pipeline are sent rejection notifications for reasons of data privacy. Learn here how to delete your applicant data.
Once your position has been archived, you will be able to find it in the overview of all archived positions under Recruiting > Postings > Archived positions. Applicant profiles that have been assigned to an archived job opening will be flagged accordingly.
Reactivating a Job Opening
If you would like to reactivate an archived job opening, go to the Archived positions section. Now select the desired opening and click on Edit. Use the Reopen function to newly activate the archived job opening. Now select the desired opening and click on Edit. Use the Reopen function to newly activate the archived job opening.
In the last step, check the box next to Publish to have the job posting displayed again on your Personio career page.
