Waiting to hear back about a job application can be a nerve-wracking time.
The system does not automatically update applicants on their progress through the hiring process, but it does confirm an application has been successfully received via email and on the applicant's profile page.
We do provide tools for recruiters to communicate with and update job seekers. Each recruiter has the choice if and when to use them. We encourage recruiters to use these tools, but, unfortunately not everyone does.
