The Hiring module is available as part of the Fingercheck 360 and 360 Plus packages but can be enabled for other customers individually.

In this guide, you'll see how to use the Hiring features to post a job, screen applicants, run background checks, update the status of an applicant in the hiring process, and finally, hire an applicant through Fingercheck.

If you want to run background checks on applicants through Fingercheck, see How to Run Background Checks.
