Applying as an internal applicant

Employees in a SmartRecruiters account can apply as internal applicants to jobs at their own company through the Internal Mobility portal.

Find internal postings

To access your company's internal postings, open the user menu and click Internal Mobility.

Internal Mobility is an optional feature, so you if you don't see it in the list, your Admin may not have activated it.

On the Internal Mobility page, you'll find a list of jobs posted by your company.

Apply to internal posting

Hover over a job in the list and click I'm Interested to apply as an internal applicant.SmartRecruiters will direct you to the job ad. Just click I'm Interested to fill out the application using a social profile like LinkedIn, upload a resume, or enter your information manually. 

Take a look at the URL for the job ad. It'll look something like this:

The internal flag at the end of the URL lets SmartRecruiters know you're an internal applicant. When you submit the application, SmartRecruiters will mark you as an internal candidate, even if you apply using a different email address (e.g., a personal one) than the one associated with you SmartRecruiters account.

Once you've completed the application and submitted it, you'll receive a note acknowledging your application:

Dear Ellie,

Thank you for submitting your application for the position of Director, User Experience. We will review your application and contact you shortly.

Best regards,
Acme Holdings Hiring Team
