Using Candidate Search
Candidate Search is a way to conduct a more advanced search. This can be helpful if you are not sure who you're looking for or if you would like to perform a search for a list of candidates with specific details or keywords on their resume (e.g. candidates who applied within a certain date range, or feature key skills or experiences on their resume).
To start, click 'Candidates' at the top, left of your hiring site.
On the search page, you can search for someone by name, email address, or phone number, search resumes by keyword, or generate a list using various filters.
You can also select filters to hone in on a specific candidate pool.
The search field also accepts a combination of names, email addresses, and/or phone numbers separated by OR to produce results containing multiple candidates.
You can edit filters by clicking on the desired filter button, making your selection, then clicking the 'Apply Filters' button. To reset the filters you've selected, click 'Reset all filters'. This will remove any filters and reset the Applied date to 'Last 30 days'.
Click on an applicant or candidate's name from the results to be taken to the individual's preview page. On the preview page, you can see the person's contact information, resume, recent activity, and any job(s) they've applied for. For more details, click on a job the applicant or candidate applied for to view their complete profile.
Click the job title to review the candidates application and documents.
While search tools can be a fast way to locate and take action on a specific applicant or candidate, it can also function as a strategic tool to source qualified candidates.
