Note: To schedule jobs you must have the permission Publish jobs enabled in your hiring role.

1. Go to the Jobs section and select Edit next to a Job you would like to schedule.

2. Under the Job posting tab, click the schedule icon.

3. Select a publish and a close date, set the timezone if applicable, and click Schedule.


  • You can schedule publish and close dates for jobs with the status draft or internal use. If your job is already published, you can only schedule a close date.

  • Scheduled jobs will be published at the beginning (at 0:00) and closed at the end of the day (at 23:59) they are scheduled for.

  • Your job will not be published should you not have any free job slots available at the time of the scheduled publish date.

  • Once a close date is set, a ‘validThrough’ parameter will be added to the structured data on your careers site, allowing Google for Jobs to know when to take your job posting offline. This will improve your postings ranking on Google for Jobs. You can learn more about structured data here.

4. Your job is now scheduled to be published. Click on the button including the scheduled dates to edit them.

5. To delete all scheduled dates, edit both the publish and close date and select Clear.

Scheduled dates for jobs are also visible in the Jobs section. Select the Scheduled filter in the top-left to show only jobs that are scheduled.

If you are making use of the table view, you can adjust the columns to show your scheduled publish and close dates and sort by them.

As scheduled publish and close dates disappear when the job is published, archived, or closed, you can also add columns showing your jobs’ actual publish and close dates.


  • A publish date reflects when a job was last published or set as internal use. Setting a published job for internal use, or vice versa, will not update the publish date.

  • A close date reflects when a job was last closed or archived. Closing an archived job will not update the close date.

  • Republishing a closed job will clear the close date and update the publish date.
