What is a Job Applicant?
A Job Applicant is a person interested in applying for a new job and completing the initial step of the hiring process by filling out a job application.
How do job applicants find my job listings?
A job applicant may find your job in a few different ways:
- Career Site: A Job applicant may go directly to your company website and apply for a position from your career site.
- Job Boards: A Job applicant may search on a job board and come across your job ad. Examples of job boards would be Indeed, Monster, GlassDoor, LinkedIn, etc. They can apply directly from the job board if your company has it set up to allow for this (that's called "Quick Apply") or the job board may redirect them to your company website.
- Search Engines: People looking for jobs can also use search engines, such as Google, to look for jobs in their preferred field and in their location.
