My Jobs

Recommendation: It is in the best interest of the employer and candidate to never close a job prior to the original close date.

  • How do I create a new job? ~ Scroll over My Job Postings>New Job to create a new job posting.

  • How do I edit an existing job? ~ Scroll over My Jobs and click on Job List to view a list of all job postings you have created. Click on the Job ID or Job Title to view the Job details. If you edit a job, it will be reviewed by our office before it is re-posted to students again.

  • What do the Job statuses mean? ~

    • Pending – All new jobs and edited jobs will be assigned “pending” status.

    • Active – After a job is approved it will be assigned “active” status.

    • Closed by Employer – This is the status assigned when the employer closes the job. NOTE:  You can close a job by opening it and clicking Close Job at the top of the screen.

    • Inactive – When a job expires it will be assigned “inactive” status.

  • How do I create or view Job Placements or Resume Referrals? ~ There are two ways in which you can view activity on your job postings:

    • Option 1 – Scroll over My Job Postings and click on Job List. Locate the Activity column next to each job. “R” is for referrals. Click the R to view students that have applied/submitted their resume.

    • Option 2 – From your job postings – job list page, click on Job Title to view application activity. On the next screen, select View Activity under the heading Page Functions. All candidates who click on Apply Now will appear in your summary. Click on View to see applicants’ personal message and a link to their resume.


  • When will my job post to students? ~ An AggieCAREER Manager administrator will need to change the status from “pending” to “active” and then the position will post on the Post Date listed. If the Post Date has passed, then it posts as soon as it is approved.

  • When will my job expire to students? ~ When the expiration date is reached. You may edit this date if you want your job posted online for a longer period of time.

  • Will I get an email the day before my job expires? ~ Yes, it will be emailed to the email address listed in your profile, under My Profile.

  • How do I close a job before the Expiration date? ~ Click on your job to view the details. At the left-hand side of your screen, you will see Close Job. Click on that link to close your job. The status will change to “Closed By Employer” and it will no longer be available to students.
