Documenting Searches

Anonymous - Oct 17, 2016
Back to Ask the Experts

Recruiters source for candidates within our own Applicant Tracking System (searching for candidates from all of the positions candidates have ever applied to using key word searches versus JUST looking at the candidates that have applied for a given position). In addition, we also search for candidates on LinkedIn and CareerBuilder and reach out to them and send them the link to apply if they are interested. What are the rules for documenting searches per OFCCP?
Do we have to document when we search for candidates:
1.) within the pipeline of the position to narrow down the pool of candidates to find those who are the best fit, and/or
2.) when we search within the database of our entire database at large to find candidates who applied for other openings that might be a fit, and/or
3.) when we search within LinkedIn, and CareerBuilder, etc.

And are there rules for how and where to document?
Thank you!
