Comeet tracks candidates sources automatically. This data allows recruiters and sources to analyze the quality of their sources and prioritize the various talent acquisition channels.
Sources are tracked automatically and can also be manually defined where further granularity is needed, for example when tracking several different sourcing campaigns on Facebook.
Applicants will be attributed to the source who referred them (company employee, sourcing campaign, or other) when they apply for a position in the 30 days following their first visit to your website through that source. After 30 days, the source tracking will expire and subsequently created again the next time they visit your website, through the same source or another source.
Prerequisites for tracking candidates sources
Tracking candidate sources works for the following setups:
- Integrated careers website that uses the Application Form Widget and Employee Referral Widget
- Comeet’s hosted careers website
NOTE: If your website is not integrated with Comeet, or it is integrated but does not implement the application form widget, candidates are not associated with their source.
The following list describes the sourcing channels that are tracked by Comeet.
There are several ways to refer friends and colleagues for a position: posting to social media, sending an email to a friend or submitting a friend’s resume on the company’s careers website, learn more here.
When a candidate clicks on a link or a post shared by a company’s employee, Comeet will recognize this employee as the candidate’s source.
Independently track a new campaign, article, ad or post by using a trackable link.
Get trackable link
- Create a new source (from Position > Sources > New source) or edit an existing source.
- In the source window, pick a position or the careers website and click on Get trackable link to copy a trackable link to the clipboard.
- Paste this link in an article, in an ad or anywhere else to make sure the candidates from this source are associated with the selected source, independently of the referring website.
Integrated job boards
Candidates that reach your website from posts on job boards (for example Indeed, Glassdoor) that are integrated with Comeet are automatically associated with the job board as their source.
See the list of integrated job boards.
Direct traffic, candidates that type the address of your website in the browser, are associated with a source entitled with the name of the company’s domain (yourcompany.com).
Traffic from other websites
When candidates reach the company’s careers website through a link on another website, Comeet recognizes the referring website’s domain as the candidate’s source. For example, if you see a source named ‘Google.com’ it means that a candidate clicked a link to your careers website on Google.
Referring domain will take effect only when the above scenarios don’t apply
Best practice: Comeet can track traffic to any page on your website from any page on the web. To do that, we suggest that you integrate the Careers API on all pages of your website. It’s simple to integrate, the technical information is available here.
