SmartMobility allows employees within a SmartRecruiters account to view and apply to jobs posted by their company.

Posting internal jobs

The Internal Mobility page lists all Public and Internal job ads posted at a company. When someone publishes a Public or Internal job ad, SmartRecruiters will also post the ad to Internal Mobility. There's no extra step to posting to Internal Mobility.

  • For every Public job ad, SmartRecruiters automatically posts that ad to the Internal Mobility page, even if someone hasn't created an Internal ad.
  • All Internal ads are posted to the Internal Mobility page.
  • Private ads are excluded from the Internal Mobility page.

Jobs in the list are organized by the (business) Function that was chosen when the job was created.

Application methods

Employees can apply as internal applicants, and receive the Employee label, in five ways:

  • When they apply to any job (Public or Internal) through the Internal Mobility portal.
  • When they apply to any job (Public or Internal) through the Internal Job Widget.
  • When they apply through an Internal job ad.
  • When they apply to a Public job ad using their company email address, and the company has Domain Authentication activated.
  • When the customer posts to the Application API and sets internal=true. This is used when the customer has their own internal mobility page. 

Anyone who has the URL for an internal job can apply to that job. They'll be marked as an internal applicant and receive the Employee label even if they aren't actually an employee.


Tracking internal applicants

Once added to SmartRecruiters, internal applicants are easily identified by the Employee tag:
