An Overview of Vacancies

Last Updated:

Vacancies help you manage candidates that are in your hiring process. These might be candidates that have applied for a role or candidates that your team has sourced and qualified as interested.

Note: Your company's use of Beamery’s Vacancies feature will depend on your internal workflows, your use of an ATS, and whether your ATS is integrated with Beamery. Ensure that you are familiar with the best practices of your specific organization.
