Delivering job applicants to your applicant tracking platform


Jobs posted to Monster can be configured to leverage your Apply with Monster integration's service to transmit candidate information to your applicant tracking solution.  Just like for jobs posted at your career sites, enabling jobs posted to Monster in this way will boost applicant conversion by further simplifying the seeker's apply experience.

To enable jobs posted to Monster, a subset of your Apply with Monster configuration parameters used for your career site configuration simply need to be added to your Real Time Posting (RTP) implementation.  For complete specification detail, see the Real Time Posting Development Guide.

Example of a REQUEST ApplyWithMonster element within an RTP job specification
…
</JobBody>
<ApplyWithMonster>
	<DeliveryMethod monsterId="3"/>
	<DeliveryFormat monsterId="2"/>
        <VendorText>This apply comes from a job on Monster</VendorText>
	<OnContinueURL>http://customerA.myats.com/continue?srcattr=monster</OnContinueURL>
	<ApiKey>EAAQLKS_bP0ZEOaA5AoqISUR4w--</ApiKey>
…

Example of a POST ApplyWithMonster element within an RTP job specification  

</JobBody>
<ApplyWithMonster>
<DeliveryMethod monsterId="1"/>
<DeliveryFormat monsterId="1"/>
<VendorText>This apply comes from a job on Monster</VendorText>
<PostURL>https://jobapply.atsendpoint.com/api/jobapplymonster</PostURL>
<ApiKey>EAAQLKS_bP0Zsample5AoqISUR4w--</ApiKey>

As when configuring Apply with Monster for your career site, when Apply with Monster is specified within your RTP specification, the parameter set must include all required fields necessary per your particular configuration. For example, if the DeliveryMethod is set to POST, a PostURL is required. The PostURL would also need to be a valid registered domain for the referenced ApiKey.

Values for the DeliveryMethod and DeliveryFormat are the following:

<xsd:simpleType name="AwmDeliveryMethodIdEnum">
- <xsd:annotation>
<xsd:documentation>1 POST 2 EMAIL 3 REQUEST

<xsd:simpleType name="DeliveryFormatIdEnum">
- <xsd:annotation>
<xsd:documentation>1 JSON 2 XML</xsd:documentation>


For more technical details on these, go to the Monster enumerations schema located here. Simply search in that schema for “AwmDeliveryMethod” and "AwmDeliveryFormat".

Take Note!

EmailAddress and PostURL in the RTP schema do not support the optional Base64 encoding of data-emailaddress and data-posturl, respectively.



When specifying Apply with Monster within an RTP specification, there is an element: OnContinueURL. On your career site, you might optionally utilize the data-onsuccess and data-oncontinue parameters to trigger continuing on to additional interview questions for your application. If the REQUEST delivery method is used, data-onsuccess is essential to obtain the requestUrl in the success event. OnContinueURL serves a similar purpose for a Monster job posting to provide the requestUrl to your service. OnContinueURL is the destination for where Monster to redirect the applicant to continue on to any ensuring steps to be taken, such as additional interview questions. OnContinueURL is required when the DeliveryMethod is REQUEST.

Example redirect using OnContinueURL:

Continuing on the example above (where REQUEST delivery method is specified), when an applicant completes Apply with Monster, she might be redirected like this:

http://customerA.myats.com/continue/?srcattr=monster&requestUrl=https%3a%2f%2flogin.monster.com%2fAwm%2fApplyRecord%3fapikey%3dEAAQ33Nb18vQ34xbnqYiR2KayESo9mwTmdI9MsrWNfAK9q4-%26adt%3dEAAQbLTWk.pUfmRb5dAUyfsnWxKWADzVmXvYNzAMK67_8gBEIXiNG4O.XOJgih1ryKveZXvNxWDzLhrqGwN_Jt1vmdlPvsfyP_cVyOHkHLSo9capgx67OSoaolAwAxlLLResYxOcsNH8BeJoG5HjnjOPEKsqVwhDuar2gxpoCLoucGG4TvkVGmscV5k_rxOzm6_3qQND5i6qK_WGqj3Wl1SBKi5pkTUucxlzDUFoM3LYq.VjUQRQUa.UuOrohzoZS6k4A1zMdtMgv98rS9evhMWl1lasze6.Kx6QtS8hv5wfSOHSD7AeKigXYjq383vPNXW_BwwIC4dy_J75zgjgNiBEuFw6IeDcULItYsCyUZQMiPuq4PmAxCLs6TOiziW8cBP_X.Q0HRDx7rRSaDIX4wKzANT15yxFXNbMzJ.PDtS2QE.Gqr2XxvXLjKkuzoXS6MIkSUAANDvMzmnmDW6RlfQxgqJczTaHMhExO48rBQQWM2UCnTsjLjOhPCO2mCcn0c1F5Vrvbli5TW.fP1aB5DnR_7omWe0eanPSKO9.dagy1k0knNJKpNVbLYrwiXdyxW8279IKIrwdqCZX8pnw4K4ZxT1WUxkLK145dkNJ3.UVf30f8wkHrz5pLGwamrE4nlWXg_iAGcmJnubqCgYI5pl8Poa576v6GJq4FD4goGSCB9LKFX_7cq6fMHvhqsM1T_DbxvOeWOwUfzmCHs2.6pbRSK6idqUtq8ygffLlDIhA9c0


From here, the HTTP GET processing is the same as for a REQUEST notification for an Apply with Monster integration at your career site.

Be sure to specify appropriate attribution of the candidate source to Monster for candidates sourced via Apply with Monster.
