As an employer, you want your careers page to create a great candidate experience. This helps to raise a company’s brand awareness and improves public perception. What’s more, almost all candidates would refer others to an organization if they had a positive experience.
A good careers area should be inviting and easy to use, which sounds simple enough. However, when using an ATS, there is one careers page solution which immediately challenges the usability and functionality of your website: an iframe.
Despite how common it is to find frame-in-frame solutions for any type of website, an iframe is absolutely the worst way to build a careers page.
Some of the issues caused by hosting your ATS in an iframe include:
- Lack of security
- Tricky navigation
- Non-responsive design
- Bad for SEO
- No ability to save & share jobs
