They include details related to the employment lifecycle, from interviewing, selecting, pursuing, and hiring applicants. It can also be used for on-boarding new hires and maintaining all the related forms and files. Most human resources departments keep all the documents for candidates in one file to make it convenient for HR staff, directors, and interview team members to locate information quickly. The key to effective recruiting is establishing a functional system to organize documents received from job seekers, such as resumes, reference lists, and supplemental documents.
