Easy Apply

Colin H. - Nov 21, 2019
Back to Ask the Experts

LinkedIn and Indeed are job boards that have a function called “Easy Apply”. It allows applicants to express interest in a posted role by just sending a resume but not having to complete the full application. I know that if we were to want to formally interview the candidate after seeing the resume, that we’d need to have the candidate formally apply first. However, is there an issue for a federal contractor to have this expression of interest as a separate step if we retained the information through one of the two job boards in case of audit?
