Product Overview

CareerPlug is an all-in-one applicant tracking system (ATS) that takes you from sourcing talent to onboarding a new hire. CareerPlug also provides you with brief evaluations and interactive calculators to help you understand how well your current efforts are scaling and identify your company’s hiring needs.

The key benefits to using CareerPlug include:

  • Improving process standards and consistency when onboarding a new hire
  • Improving efficiency by streamlining hiring processes in as few clicks as possible
  • Driving better hiring results by reducing errors in reports and easily tracking hiring goals


CareerPlug’s features can be categorized into three main functions: candidate sourcing, applicant tracking and new-hire onboarding.

Candidate Sourcing

  • Career pages – Use a career page to showcase your company and its job opportunities in an attractive way to gain more interested applicants.
  • Job board posting – Easily share your job opportunities on popular job boards, like SimplyHired and Glassdoor, and your social networks to gain visibility.
  • Mobile-friendly applications – All job descriptions posted through CareerPlug are automatically optimized for mobile devices.

Applicant Tracking

  • Prescreening assessments – Use prescreening questions and assessments to evaluate a candidate’s skills. The results can help you compare candidates, and benchmarking tools can assist you with narrowing down your search.
  • Interview guides – Improve consistency in interviews with CareerPlug’s in-depth interview guides and scorecards. These can be tied to role competencies for a more accurate evaluation.
  • Integrated background checks – Verify a candidate’s background with an integrated reference and background checking tool.
  • Electronic offer letters – Send electronic offer letters (and reference verifications) that can be reviewed and signed from any device.

New-Hire Onboarding

  • New-hire checklists – Make onboarding more consistent across the whole company by creating new-hire checklists that include forms, orientation materials and training items.
  • Paperless forms – Electronic forms can easily be signed, reviewed and stored to ensure they’re completed correctly and accessible when necessary.
