Reproducing the Issue

  1. In Recruiting > Go to a Job Requisition
  2. In the Recruiting Team field, try to search for the user
  3. The user won't be found



  • There are two possible reasons for this scenario:
    • The User/Operator is not defined in the Recruiting Group
    • The Recruiting Group is not attached to the Recruiting Team field inside the Job Requisition template.




Confirm both scenarios mentioned in the Cause section.

Recruiting Group:

  1. In Admin Center > Go to Manage Recruiting Groups
  2. Find the respective Recruiting Group to add the user
  3. Click to Edit and add the user

Note: Confirm the User is being added, otherwise in case the wrong User is added, s/he will have access to Recruiting and all the respective Job Requisitions that are attached to this Recruiting Group.
