Join Us for Fast & Thorough Background Screening with Verified First
We are pleased to invite you to a webinar hosted by our partners, Verified First, on October 27th at 1:00 PM ET. They’ll explore how your organization can easily make recruiting and hiring decisions and how to avoid the bad ones.
iRecruit’s Two-Factor Authentication
In an ongoing effort to improve security within the iRecruit platform we added an email-based Two-Factor Authentication for all users on September 1st, 2022. This update will affect all users.
Social Media Share Updated
iRecruit’s Social Media Share has been updated to include the option of adding a short social media friendly description of your post, and image. As we all know, social posts with images receive a lot more engagement than those without. Access the Social Media Sharing option via Advertise Requisitions, and choose from Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.
Can new hires sign their job description in iConnect?
iConnect is iRecruit’s electronic onboarding module, which is available as an add on to the Applicant Tracking Software. iConnect allows you to take control of the mountain of new hire paperwork and manage it online in your secure iRecruit database.
Four Things You Need to Know When Texting Job Applicants
Texting is available to all iRecruit users who would like to incorporate texting into their recruiting tools. iRecruit TXT allows users to initiate conversations with applicants directly from the applicant’s profile page. iRecruit users can have a faster time to fill by using texting.
