2560069 - RMK Dashboard: RCM Redirect source - Recruiting Marketing


Customers have reported that they're seeing the RCMRedirect source in statistics of the RMK Dashboard. The following figure exemplifies this for Visitors. However, this also happens with Applicants as well.


In this figure we can notice that 3.57% of the Visitors are classified as RCM Redirect. The RCM Redirect source means that candidates are redirected to RMK website when they access Job Search link on RCM career site. This action occurs because many customers have raised a concern that they want all the candidates to apply for jobs via RMK not from RCM as they have bought RMK for Marketing purpose. Consequently, the RCM Redirect source can be interpreted as Career Site source since the candidates apply only through the RMK career site.

However, this kind of source isn't clear for the customers and they don't realize how this process works for the candidate. In this context, this KBA demonstrates how a Visitor or Applicant is classified as RCM Redirect when he/she is looking for a job to apply for.
