In an ongoing effort to improve security within the iRecruit platform we are adding an email-based Two-Factor Authentication for all users on September 1st, 2022. This update will affect all users.
Text a reminder that new hire forms have been assigned. Yes, iConnect will automatically send an email reminder, however, not everyone checks their emails as often as they see texts on their phone. This is a convenient way to speed up your onboarding process.
The Work Opportunity Tax Credit is a federal tax credit available to employers who hire individuals from target groups who have faced significant barriers to employment. Target groups include individuals on SNAP benefits, disabled individuals, Veterans, the long-term unemployed and more. The average tax credit is around $2,400 and around 10-15% of new hires may be eligible.
In order to use a custom email address with iRecruit such as firstname.lastname@example.org for outgoing messages such as “Thank you for applying” or “new hire forms” notices, you will have to add an SPF and DKIM Record to your DNS for iRecruit.
