The California State University system has implemented a new system-wide recruitment platform called CHRS Recruiting. CHRS Recruiting is built on a software platform called PageUp. This new system will allow our campus to streamline our recruitment and onboarding processes. Discover the benefits of CHRS Recruiting in the video below.
