Now let’s talk about Lever job page overlays.
What is a Lever Job Page Overlay?
A job page overlay is a design layer put over an ATS-generated job page (in this case Lever) to make job pages more attractive and engaging to candidates.
Most ATS-generated job pages are black and white text-based web pages, supplemented with a company logo or two.

- Recruiting widgets
