The position is now closed and applicants will no longer be able to apply to the position. However, the landing page will not be automatically unpublished.


An Administrator or Case Manager will need to unpublish the landing page of a closed position so that applicants will no longer be able to access the position. Once this is done, the position will no longer appear in the list of active positions but will appear in the list of closed (archived) positions, viewable by filtering the list of positions.
