How it works

In order to track whether candidates clicked on links and enable click rate metrics, we have to shorten links. So if you link to a URL like, we will keep the link text but will rewrite that URL to something like (visible on mouseover to the candidate).

It's up to you as to when you want to use link tracking. As a best practice, we recommend turning it on, with the exception of a few roles that tend to care more about privacy (e.g. security engineers).
