Weekly Release: Your Suggestions Built

Many of you told us that you wanted to test out the functionality of applicant profiles immediately. And so, for all new users, SmartRecruiters CEO Jerome Ternynck is now waiting for you in the software as a Test Applicant! Many of you also noticed that the “state” does not accompany “city” on all displays of job postings. So now they do. And to meet the need to mass share a branded and personalized message, we improved the versatility of email templates.

Job Location
