The business processes that we will be focussing on are :

1. Create and maintain Job Openings
2. Create and maintain Applicant data.
3. Screen, Route and Interview applicants
4. Make Offers and push for hiring

Before we being to look at the business processes in detail, we need to know the TAM related control tables that have to be set up, here we assume

i. The basic HCM configuration as discussed in the previous posts is in place.
ii. The checkbox against Talent Acquisition Maanger has been selected in the Products page following the navigation, SetUp HRMS >> Install >> Installation Table >> Products


The TAM implementation setup begins with setting up the implementation defaults as follows,

ii. Specify starting numbers for system assigned number sequences such as the Job Opening ID, Applicant ID etc

The pages for the above setup are part of the Recruiting Installation template and can be reached through the path SetUp HRMS >> Install >> Product and Country Specific >> Recruiting Installation.

iii. Job Postings Set Up, When Job Openings are created, they include text based descriptions, these descriptions can be selected and included from the Job Postings library, to create Job Postings, A Job Posting can thus include text from various Job Postings that can collectively describe your organisation, the job profile, detail the responsibilities involved, mention qualificationsrequired, contain directions on who can and cannot apply etc.

first a Job Posting type is defined, delivered values include qualifications, responsibilities, who may apply etc and then the Job Posting description is written, the description has a Description Label and the Description text, the path followed is SetUp HRMS >> Product Related >> Posting Descriptions
