Configuring the Applicant Portal

This topic guides Admins in configuring the Applicant Portal for Recruitment so that recruiters can post (and test) job reqs.

The Applicant Portal of Wurk

This is the view of Wurk that applicants see. It is different than what you will see as an administrator, hiring manager, or recruiter. It is a part of the Recruitment module and is where job applicants can connect with you through the application, interview, and hiring process. This portal only shows information about job postings from your company and can contain internal, external, and internal plus external jobs.

If your company has multiple EINs, each one can have its own Applicant Portal with a unique URL. The same job req can be listed on multiple EINs.
