How long do you keep the candidates application for?

Posted By: Thomas Shaw, 5:37pm Tuesday 16 March 2010    Print Article

While researching application forms today, I came across an question that I had to share. It's one of these questions which no one really talks about. "How long will you permit us to store your personal information in the database?"

It's good to see a recruiter asking the candidate upfront instead of hiding these details in complex privacy policy documents. Please ensure you check your own country/state laws regarding the collection, storage and destruction of business records.
