Recruitment Manager: Create an Inquiry

Offices using Recruitment Manager can create new inquiries as needed. Inquiries are connected to an individual’s contact record. If you are adding an inquiry for a person not already in the system, you create the contact record first, then create the inquiry. Always search for an individual before creating a new contact/inquiry to prevent duplication of contact records. 

First name, last name, email address, academic program, and anticipated start year are required to create a contact record and inquiry.

Step-by-Step Process

    • If a contact record exists for the individual, select the record and click Next. Go to step 10.
