Job ads are represented in the SEEK API by
PositionProfileobjects. The position’s profile consists of:
You can post a job ad by passing
PositionProfiledata to one of the posting mutations. This starts an asynchronous process to place a live job ad on the SEEK job board.
The majority of job ads are automatically posted within a minute. However, in certain circumstances SEEK will manually review a job ad before it’s posted. In either case, a
PositionProfilePostedevent will be emitted immediately after the job ad goes live.
The job ad will automatically close on its scheduled
enddate . If an end date wasn’t specified during posting it will default to the maximum period of 30 days. Scheduled closure is not instantaneous, and typically occurs within 24 hours.
You can explicitly close a job ad earlier using the
closePostedPositionProfilemutation . Once the job ad is closed it will be removed from the SEEK job board and a
PositionProfileClosedevent will be emitted.
SEEK job ads are priced for a fixed time period of 30 days. You can close a job ad earlier but the SEEK hirer will still be charged full price.
PositionProfileobject and its associated candidate applications will remain for 180 days after its close date. Your software must store any data it needs to access after the 180 day period.
Before you can start with job posting queries and mutations, you will need to request a partner token.
