4.1 Add talent in myHaley

  • To add a new talent post, click "Add New" under the Manage Talent menu.
  • On this screen, you will have the ability to enter information about your candidate. The required fields are "Email", "Title", "First Name", "Last Name", "Date Added", "Expiration Date", "Recruiter", Confidentiality", and "Full Bio"- however, we recommend entering as much information as possible.

The fields include:
