How to Include Both Internal and External Applicants in iRecruit

iRecruit makes it easy to post jobs internally – make them available to internal candidates. Customers can create an internal only career site that is separate from the career page used by external applicants. When you add Internal Jobs to your iRecruit account a secondary URL is generated to used with internal candiates. You can invite employees to apply for your open roles very simply by using iRecruit’s internal jobs link (URL) on your intranet, private network, or even your employee newsletter. You can even add it to your external posting career page.

When you post an internal job, you have the option of using a different employment application than your external applicants. That will give you a chance to ask typical questions like:

  • Are you a current employee?
  • Are you currently in good standing, and not on a performance improvement plan?
  • Does your manager know you are applying?
  • Which department/location are you currently in?
  • How long have you been in your current role?
  • Why are you interested in this role?

Additionally, you can ask specific knockout screening questions to your internal applicants.

It’s very simple to manage your internal and external post using the requisition set up page. All job posts are managed by a date range, including your internal job postings. You can post your job internally for one week first for example, and then post externally. Or, post concurrently depending on your preferences. You can even choose to make the job internal only, so it would never be posted publicly.
