USAJOBS Integration

The USAJOBS integration is available for Federal agencies and lets you post your positions from your Cornerstone career site to USAJOBS. U.S. Federal Agencies are required to post open positions to USAJOBS for applicants to review, apply, and track status. Prior to this Edge integration, clients did not have the option to post new openings to USAJOBS. With this Edge integration, Cornerstone meets the minimum federal requirement by providing the ability to post new jobs to USAJOBS from Cornerstone Recruiting, thereby helping clients that are Federal Agencies to stay compliant with federal regulations.


  • Ability to create new requisitions and post to a career site. Cornerstone will then automatically post the job to USAJOBS.
  • Ability to map standard and custom fields to USAJOBS fields when setting up the Edge Integration.
  • Ability to edit and cancel job requisitions that have been posted on USAJOBS and are within the effective and expiration dates of the job posting. Job requisitions that fall outside of those dates cannot be edited or cancelled.
  • Jobs that are posted on USAJOBS can be edited on the Postings page in your Cornerstone portal. This includes the ability to make changes such as modifying the effective and expiration dates.
  • Hourly sync will post the job to USAJOBS and send log to emails configured in Edge.

For more information about this integration, see the Getting Started page for the integration in Edge Integrations.
