How to Embed a Video in a HRCenter Application

What is an Embedded Video?

An embedded video will allow you to link a video directly into your HRCenterTM application workflow. The video will be able to be played directly from the page in HRCenter and can be set as required for employees to watch in order to submit their application.

There are 3 steps to add an Embedded Video to HRCenter: 

  1. Upload Your Video
