Creating a Position

How do I create a Position?

Positions help us match you with the best candidates for your qualifications. You can set them up in a few easy steps. Set up Positions for all the headcount you are looking to hire so you can see candidates that match those skills. To start, select 'Create a position' on the left-hand side of your home page.

Follow the prompts to build out your Position by adding your respective qualifications, including title, role, and location. If you have a Greenhouse, Lever, Workable or Workday ATS, by integrating with Hired, this process can be expedited by only requiring a few quick updates to set up the Position. See: 'Integrating your ATS with Hired'

Selecting a Role

Next, you can select the primary role that your position falls under. You may select as many subroles that apply. To the right, you’ll notice that when you continue building out your position, you’ll start to see how many active candidates match the qualifications you list.

Adding Position Location

You can indicate where candidates for the position can work from: remote, in office, or both. By selecting 'in office', you can also list up to 8 cities- this will pull candidates who are looking for opportunities in the listed locations. If you indicate that the position is remote, it will also pull candidates who are open to remote positions that match the rest of your position qualifications. You can specify remote location options further once you have finished the initial creation of the position.

Adding Coworkers (Optional)

If you have other coworkers on Hired who are collaborating with you on the position you are creating, you can add them in the last step. See: 'Adding Coworkers to your Account'. 

You can also indicate if this position is confidential to limit who can view that the position is open on your company’s account. If this filter is turned on, the position can only be viewed by you, your hiring team (anyone collaborating with you on the position), and anyone in a Company Admin (Premium) seat on your company’s Hired account. See: 'User Types and Permissions'.

Once you select 'create a position' you will be brought to the position view with the candidate results. From here, you can begin sourcing and further refine your position with additional requirements to narrow in your search!
