Creating a New Job Seeker

Why is this important?

Job Seeker records help you to keep track of Job Seeker activity, contact your staff, store Job Seeker information and contact details, and start placing Job Seekers into placements or jobs. 

While you can also create a Job Seeker in ESS and wait for the record to sync with Job Ready overnight, you may like to create a record in Job Ready ahead of time; especially if you're in a hurry to enter notes or to place your Job Seeker.


Syncing with ESS

Job Seekers in ESS will sync with Job Ready overnight via the BDFs in your subscriptions. If you have created a Job Seeker in ESS with the same Job Seeker ID as the record in Job Ready, the information synced from ESS will override the record created in Job Ready.
