Participate in the Approval Process as an Approver

When a Requisition is created (or a Job Seeker has successfully passed required screening), the process owner can designate an Approval Process, facilitating one or more approvers in accepting or rejecting the Requisition (or the Job Seeker). Upon acceptance by the designated approver(s):

  • A Requisition can be moved from Pending to the Open Category and posted. (A Requisition with full automatic Workflow settings will be: Put in the Open Category; set to Accepting New Job Seekers; and Posted Internally and/or Externally.)
  • The Job Seeker can be sent an Offer Letter.

If either is rejected, an Approval Process can be resubmitted by the original submitter.

  • An email notification, containing links for the following three approval responses:
    • I want to log in and view the requisition [job seeker].

    • I want to decline this requisition [job seeker] without logging in.


  • A notification in the Pending Approvals tile on the approver’s Home page Dashboard will indicate a Requisition Number (or a Job Seeker Name ) requires approval.
