Append URL Parameter

For Standard career sites, the URL parameter that is generated for a custom applicant source can be appended to the URL for a ‘Default Career Site URL’ under the Career Sites on the External Posting page.

For mobile-friendly career sites, you can append the URL and create a link that can be posted for applicants to click.

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.

To access Applicant Sources, go to Admin > Tools > Recruit > Sourcing > Applicant Sources.

To manage career site pages, go to Admin > Tools > Recruit > Career Site.
