Solution Profile:

Company Overview
eQuest provides a simple, one-page user experience that enables companies to post
jobs to multiple job boards in seconds. This reduces the administrative headache of
having to visit each individual job posting site and manually post each job. Simply put,
eQuest can give your organization access to any internet job board worldwide from a
single, one-page interface.
By using eQuest, organization of all sizes—including small businesses and midsize
companies—can reduce costs and gain the ability to respond to the ever-changing
hiring requirements companies face each day.
eQuest’s growth strategy is based on the company’s own technology innovation,
coinnovation with customers and partners, and intelligent acquisitions. With worldclass
software, value-added services, and unparalleled expertise in addressing the
unique demands of organizations, eQuest continues to grow its market share as a
leading provider of HR job delivery software and related services worldwide.
Integration Overview
Each customer is required to have a valid eQuest account to use the integration. Also,
the eQuest implementation team will need to compile and install Oracle Application
Framework, J2EE, SQL, and PL/SQL objects on an instance of Oracle iRecruitment,
part of Oracle E-Business Suite.
The flow of data will be bidirectional between the Oracle iRecruitment instance and
eQuest JobLauncher 1.2. When a job opening is being posted to eQuest, the job
posting information stored in the Oracle iRecruitment database is compiled and sent as
an HTTP post to the eQuest system. When the posting steps are completed, the eQuest
system sends an HTTP post back to the Oracle iRecruitment application. The posting
information received from the eQuest system contains information about which job
boards the job opening was posted to or deleted from. The recruiter can see the posting
information for each of the job boards within the Oracle iRecruitment application.

The eQuest/Oracle E-Business Suite integration provides the following benefits:

  • Seamless, integrated Oracle iRecruitment job posting experience for recruiters
  • Elimination of manual job board posting entries and ongoing maintenance
  • Post-edit-delete without leaving Oracle iRecruitment
  • Access to hundreds of specialty sites around the world

Integration Details
To post a job opening to eQuest, the user clicks the eQuest button (circled in the
figure below) on the job posting page for an existing job opening. A JavaScript script
called by the button launches a new child browser window and calls a JavaServer
Pages (JSP) page that builds a Web form prepopulated with the information eQuest
requires to post the job.
The Java object uses the built-in JDBC API to retrieve data eQuest requires from the
Oracle iRecruitment database. Once the Web form is created and loaded by the
browser, it is automatically submitted by the JavaScript script. The form is submitted
to the eQuest system when some validation occurs. At this point, the user is in the
eQuest system and can choose which job boards the job should be posted on. Once the
user completes the job posting steps in the eQuest system, eQuest will return the flow
to a JSP page. This JSP page will process the posting information that is sent by
eQuest via HTTP post, store it in the database log table, and update the Oracle
iRecruitment tables. The key information updated in the database includes posting or
deletion dates and the URL of the posting. Thereafter, the child browser window will
be closed automatically by the JavaScript script and the parent browser window—the
vacancy page—will be refreshed.
To remove job postings, the user checks the check box under the Select to Delete
header for each of the job site’s selected vacancies. The user then clicks the Delete
Post button, which follows the same process as the eQuest button; after the deletion,
eQuest immediately returns the user to the Oracle iRecruitment system. Again, after
the return to the Oracle iRecruitment system, information passed along by eQuest is
used to update the job posting information in the Oracle iRecruitment database. The
job postings that were deleted will still show up in the Job Posting Destinations table
but will have the End Date field updated to the current date.

  • tracks candidate arriving at the ATS hosted career site for the unique job
  • measures resume conversion rate (how many arrive at site vs. resume submission) 
  • reports how many candidates were interviewed - by job board 
  • reports how many candidates were made offers - by job board 
  • reports the final hire/candidate's original job board source 
  • reports cost-to-hire by board, job, location
