Editing a Job

    Our Business Rules

  • 1. Once a job is active, the job title, job reference number and location cannot be altered.
  • 2. A job can only be refreshed once every 72 hours.

To edit a job, first retrieve the job entry, modify the data and send an authorised PUT request to the following URL. The {jobid} in this URL template needs to be replaced with your job id.

Important notice:

  • All mandatory fields must be re-submitted even if they are not being modified. The service will error if mandatory fields are missing on job update.
  • Any non-mandatory fields must be re-submitted even if they are not being updated. The service will assume any missing fields are not required and removed from the database.
  • You should not change the <version>, <id>, <created> and <updated> elements; these are non-editable fields.


PUT https://core.ws.efinancialcareers.com/v1/jobs/{jobid}
