Your online hiring system provides a direct XML feed to several job boards, including:
When a job is posted it is considered live and will be sent from the hiring system through our XML feed to the Job Boards and will appear on your system's career site. Applicants can apply on your career site immediately, but the job boards must conduct a refresh from their end once every 24-hour cycle. As soon as the job boards initiate a refresh, your postings become visible in their organic search results. Therefore, you would see organic applicant traffic from these job boards within 24-48 hours of posting a new position.
Our platform is classified as an ATS, or Applicant Tracking System. Its primary function is to centralize all of your recruiting efforts into one location and provide flexible pre-screening tools to streamline your applicant processing pipeline from start to finish. Although we offer a direct feed to these job boards to help provide organic exposure and applicant traffic, this is merely a secondary, supplemental feature of the system, and not its primary objective. Likewise, the system is not a job board aggregator, so it does not gather outside information from any other sources or job boards. The goal is to use the system as the main hub for all of the recruiting efforts you do normally, and the system is not intended to constitute or replace an entire recruitment strategy.
You can drive traffic to posted positions in several ways:
- Direct applicants from any recruitment source to your main hiring system URL address where they can review and apply for all currently posted jobs.
- Update your company website's Careers or Employment Opportunities page to direct applicants to the hiring system URL address; this can save an additional step for you and can help you monitor the total amount of traffic received from this important source.
- Generate various Tracking Links per job by creating unique URL addresses directing applicants to specific positions (bypassing your Careers site) and ensuring the accuracy of Applicant Source hiring metrics.
