There are times when you may need to find a candidate quickly but can't remember which job they applied for. Rather than having to tediously look through pages upon pages of names, you can use one of the search options!
In this article we will cover:
- Using the Magnifying Glass (Simple Search)
- Using Candidate Search (Advanced Search)
- Additional Resources
Using the Magnifying Glass
To quickly search for an individual in your account, click the magnifying glass in the navigation bar. A search field will appear and you can begin typing the applicant or candidate's name. As you type, you will see matching results appear and can select the correct name when you see it 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.
If you don't see what you're looking for, you can click 'Advanced Candidate Search' which will take you to the Candidate Search experience outlined in the next section.
Step-by-step Instructions for Using the Magnifying Glass
1. Click the magnifying glass icon.
2. Begin typing a name.
3. Click on the name when it appears.
4. Click the job title.
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 (e.g. candidates who applied within a certain date range or have specific experience).
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. Once you've run a search, the information entered in the search fields will remain in place. You can click 'Clear Search' to quickly clear those fields, reset the filters, and begin a new search.
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.
