Embed Code Basics for Your Careers Site

The candidate experience can be greatly enhanced through embed codes that pull in unique content and tools like chatbots, Spotify playlists, Instagram feeds, and more. In fact, you almost certainly already have an embed code live on your career site now which pulls in the jobs from your ATS.
