FAQ

Is there a candidate database we can tap into as a RecruitLoop recruiter?
At the moment, there is not. This is definitely some we hear quite a bit and we are working on in the background. We will be introducing some features within the system that will be as simple as typing in some boolean logic and getting a list of candidates you can easily add to a project and reach out to.
