Your hiring system is designed as the main hub for all your recruiting efforts and channels, creating a focal point for your entire recruitment strategy. As part of this process, you can increase your applicant flow by leveraging your company’s social media community and redirecting potential candidates to apply to your posted positions.
To provide enhanced reporting, the system enables you to generate tracking links for individual applicant sources such as social media platforms and boutique job boards. These are helpful as they can be created as needed per job and creates unique URL addresses directing applicants to specific positions (bypassing your Career site). Followers who apply with those links will appear in the system along with the source name in their application. This ensures accuracy of hiring metrics so you know the source where your applicants are coming from.
