Zoho Recruit | Client Portal

Client Portal - An Overview

As a recruiter, having a great relationship with your clients is critical for financial success. It's equally important to cut down lengthy email conversations and to ensure smooth collaboration. 

In Zoho Recruit's client portal, your clients can create new job openings, send feedback for the candidates submitted for review, and make interview decisions. This helps bridge those communication gaps between you and your clients, building a strong partnership as a result. 

By default, you get up to 10 free portal licenses. Then, for additional portal licenses, it is $6/portal user/month. Click here to know more.
Invited portal users are also part of the 10 free portal licenses.
