The job settings allow you to have full control over the details of the job post and the hiring process. This includes a custom apply form, confirmation email, share settings, job stages, and the hiring team. In this article, we'll walk through the different options and explain what they are and how they work.

Finding the job settings

To get to the job settings, click the Settings icon at the job on the dashboard:

Or when you're in the Live Editor, click the Settings icon in the top left corner:

You'll notice there are several options displayed at the left side. We'll briefly explain what these are.

Apply form

The first option you see is "Apply form". This is where you set up the apply form and decide what questions and information you'd like the candidate to answer and provide. To learn more about how to set this up, take a look at How do I set up or change an apply form?

Confirmation email

After candidates have applied, they'll automatically receive a confirmation email with a copy of their application. There's a default confirmation email, but you can also set a custom confirmation email specifically for this job. We explain more about how these work in How do I edit the default confirmation email? and How do I add a custom confirmation email?

Share settings

When you share your job on social media, you can provide an image and a description. You can use the Share settings of the job to upload a share image, and a set a description.

Google for Jobs

Your active public jobs are automatically scraped by Google and added to Google for Jobs. To make it easier for candidates to find your job, and make it look better in Google Search results, you can complete the job details here. Learn more in How do I post my jobs on Google for Jobs?

Hiring process

In this section, you can specify the different stages a candidate has to go through, and you can also set up the first reply status. This status shows you which candidates are still waiting on a first reply after their application.


You can make changes to general settings (like the job type, location, URL, and visibility) on this page.

Hiring team

Put together a team of hiring members that will all receive a notification when a new candidate has applied. Hiring team members are able to view all candidate profiles in that job, write notes, rate candidates, send emails, schedule events, and move, delete, and reject candidates.

Pause applications

If you've published your job and you're holding back on hiring for now, you can pause applications and keep the job active and online. This way candidates can still find your job opening and ask to be notified when you resume hiring. Check out How do I pause applications? for more information.
