Managers should be so keen when it comes to this issue of online purchases just to secure their customers from conmen and people who can probably hake the site and interfere with the customer's information with an aim of stealing from the customer. In most cases employees seek for employees online and in most cases they prefer the information and details of the entire applicant being online just to reduce on the bulkiness of the office work and make the recruitment offices little bit tidier. Besides, it is easily stored and information of so many applicants can easily be traced out in this also is by a click of a button.
