Working with Employment Types
Employment Type is an Information Element in your hiring system and represents a library of employment types that can be selected in a job template. Click the ⋮ menu of an existing Employment Type to Edit or Delete.
Edit: Editing the Employment Type is a good option if you have changes that you would like to use in all future job templates. If the Employment Type was used previously, changes will be applied to all templates, but the Employment Type in any posted jobs will not be changed.
Delete: Deleting an Employment Type will remove it from the hiring system. Performing this action cannot be reversed. If you attempt to delete an Employment Type currently assigned to one or more jobs, the system will prompt you to select a replacement Employment Type prior to deleting. The selected Employment Type will be replaced in all locations where it is used regardless of current job status.
