How our customers use it 

Some customers have stored fixed sources in application portals for, for example, Stepstone, XING, Youfirm, their intranet, and so on. This saves applicants from having to select the source. As sources, usually all media are maintained, through which the attention of an applicant can be aroused and it then comes to an application.
