This week, we’ve focused on making the candidate experience smarter and easier with 1-Click Apply and Additional Questions.
1-Click Apply improves your overall employer brand, as well as captures the interest of highly qualified, passive candidates in a single click. Candidates can quickly and easily express interest in your job with their Facebook or LinkedIn profile and/or an attached resume. We’ve also added the ability to send a quick note to the hiring manager to make the candidate experience more social. This feature replaces the previous candidate experience and does not require activation by an administrator.
By applying with a Facebook or LinkedIn profile, the candidate is able to pre-populate their profile in SmartRecruiters with their contact information, work experience and education and can edit this information in the profile template prior to submission. Candidates can also upload a resume which will be parsed to pre-populate their profile. Overall, this feature reduces the time candidates spend filling out online job applications with information redundant to what they currently have documented in their social profiles. Given that the candidate experience is often overlooked in most recruiting applications, candidates will appreciate the ease of use of this feature and may even recommend your jobs to their friends or connections as a result.
Additional Questions on the Application
Additional Questions can make hiring smarter by capturing relevant candidate data with standard employment questions, like right to work and diversity, and open-ended questions and agreements unique to your job or business. You can add questions to your active job postings for candidates to complete as part of their profile when creating or editing your online application form.
