Recruitments - Unique Recruit URLs required in recruitment plans


UC San Diego relies on AP On-Line Recruit to track and retain completed applicant information for compliance with Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs requirements.  For this reason, all departments have been required to use AP On-Line Recruit to manage all academic recruitment applications since May 1, 2013. 


In order to ensure that applicants are able to apply via Recruit, it is essential that departments provide the unique Recruit job application URL (e.g., in the application instructions in each job advertisement included in recruitment plans submitted via e-Recruitment Plan


Since all job applicants must use the unique Recruit URL to apply directly for each job, any recruitment plan lacking the unique Recruit URL in job advertisements will be returned to the submitter, and processing of the recruitment plan will be delayed.


The simplest way to insert the unique Recruit URL in job advertisements is to open e-Recruitment Plan and Recruit simultaneously, copy the URL from Recruit, and paste it into the job advertisement(s) you provide in e-Recruitment Plan.
