Append URL Parameter

Standard Career Sites

The URL parameter that is generated for a custom source can be appended to the URL for a ‘Default Career Site URL’ under the Career Sites on the External Posting page.

To append the URL and create a link that will be posted to the desired location for applicants:

  1. Copy the URL from the Career Site Administration page for the desired career site.
  2. Paste the URL into a text editor, such as Microsoft Word or Notepad.
  3. Copy the URL parameter from the Applicant Sources page.
  4. Paste the URL parameter to the end of the URL in the text editor.
  5. Copy the full URL with the appended URL parameter.
  6. Post the URL to the desired location. The location is the place from which you would like applicants to be able to see and click the link. This becomes the applicant source. When an applicant applies to the requisition by accessing it from the location to which you posted the URL, the applicant source will be tracked to that location.
