Field Recruiting App


SmartRecruiters' Field Recruiting App is a powerful tool for recruiting on-site at events, campuses, and stores.

  • Recruiters and hiring managers configure the App and select the job ads on a specific device.
  • Candidates apply to specific jobs by scanning their resume using that device’s camera.

The App 2.0 version is available to all customers. It works on phones and tablets running iOS v13.0 or above or Android SDK 23 (Android OS version 6), but is optimized for iPads and Android tablets.

Keep in mind that the Field Recruiting App is designed to quickly collect candidates’ contact information and add them in SmartRecruiters. They’re added as Leads on the job, so you can proactively begin the hiring process by converting them in the Hiring app or in SmartRecruiters, or simply wait for them to apply to the job using the link they receive in a follow-up email.

Getting Started

Before you prepare the Field Recruiting App for your event:

  • Create a custom candidate source  for the event. The App can use any custom source in your SmartRecruiters account. 
  • Set up a Brand. The Field Recruiting App uses the Brand’s company logo, color, and office picture to style the App.

All steps require Administrator access.

When you're ready, start here and configure the App.

Optionally, setup access for specific users. Activate the feature to control which users can access the Field Recruiting App and for how long.
