How to re-post a job

Follow these instructions to re-post a job:

1. Click on the Job Posting tab from the main dashboard and you will see a list of the jobs that you have posted in the past.

2. Click on Re-post next to the job you wish to re-post.

Click on the image to enlarge.

Your company information, application information, job description and the job requirements of the past job will be displayed.

Check this information carefully and add or delete information as needed to customize or update the new version of your job posting.

Click on the Submit Posting for Approval at the very bottom of the page. Your job will be visible to students once it has been approved.

 

 

How to review applications

Once your job posting deadlines, you will receive an email notifying that the posting was closed. You can then review your applications:

  1. In the left hand menu, select the SITE Co-op / ArchPlan Co-op section, followed by the Applications subsection.
  2. Your job postings are displayed in chronological order (oldest appear at the top). Find the job posting for which you'd like to review the applicants, and select that job posting.
  3. You are now in the Applications section for the job posting you selected.

    You may now view applications in two ways:
    • Individually: click the PDF icon.
    • Application Bundle: to view multiple applications as a package: select the applications you wish to review by checking beside that student’s name. Next, click Create an Application Bundle. You may then download the package and send to another contact through email.
