Some job boards have added the ability for job seekers to complete job applications directly on their site. For instance, with indeed apply, a job seeker would be able to complete their job application form while still on the indeed.com domain - effectively never visiting your JobScore hosted careers page.
In many cases this is a great feature because it allows job seekers to use the stored information from their profiles to populate your job application forms, often increasing the number of applicants you receive.
By default, when JobScore sends jobs to Indeed, ZipRecruiter and LinkedIn we turn on this “quick apply” functionality, but it doesn’t work 100% of the time. This article outlines how to control when and how quick apply will work.
How to turn quick apply on and off
In Jobscore you have the option to globally turn quick apply on and off for different job boards on the Admin > Integrations > Job Boards page. You also have the option to turn quick apply on and off on a per job basis by editing the job. These controls are located in the "Job Application Integrations" card.
With Indeed, Ziprecruiter and LinkedIn, if you turn off the quick apply feature, all candidates will be directed to apply on your jobscore-hosted careers site and everything will continue to work.
Job application form settings that automatically turn off quick apply
Some features that you can turn on in JobScore are not supported by our job board partners. If you turn on a JobScore feature that won’t work on a job board, quick apply won’t work. In the case of Indeed, ZipRecruiter and LinkedIn, this means that job seekers will be directed to apply on your JobScore hosted careers site.
There are two specific settings that none of the job boards support:
- OFCCP compliance: The US government requires that OFCCP questions be asked in a specific format and layout, which the job boards do not support. For this reason, if you turn on OFCCP compliance in your account, none of your jobs will be eligible for quick apply.
- Click-through agreements: None of the job boards support click-through agreements, so if you add one to your job application process, again none of your jobs will be eligible for quick apply
