Job Application

Smart Hiring Begins
Before the Interview

With so many job seekers heading online, recruiting is not easy as it once was. More importantly, ever-evolving regulations regarding questions on your application add complexity. Our attorney-developed Job Application Smart App is the easiest way to accept employment applications online and have confidence you are always in compliance with the most current hiring laws for your state.


How it Works

Expand Your Recruitment Reach Without Crossing into Illegal Territory

The Job Application Smart App from HRdirect lets you create your online employment application to collect the right information and connect with candidates. Here's how:

  • The State-Compliant Job Application

    You'll start with the most current, state-compliant job application. Whenever there’s a change to your state’s requirements, you’ll be notified and your application will be updated to reflect the most up-to-date, compliant version.
  • Safely Make It Your Own

    If you choose, you can customize your job application by selecting optional questions pre-written by our legal and HR experts. So you can be sure you’re asking about the exact skills and background required for the job.
  • Connect with Candidates

    With one click, generate a link to your job application or email it directly to a candidate. Then, without needing to create an account or download any software, the candidate completes the application, attaches a résumé and cover letter, and sends it back to you.
  • Streamline the Next Steps in Hiring

    A summary view makes it simple to review all submitted applications at a glance. With just a click, digitally file and retain rejected applications or, if hired, start the employee’s electronic personnel file.
