What does the Candidate Filtering Feature entail?
Filtering candidates is one of the biggest obstacles and frustrations for many remote companies. Screening through hundreds of remote applicants can feel overwhelming and it often delays the overall hiring timeline.
With the Candidate Filtering feature selected, you’ll receive manually prioritized batches of applicants 3, 14 and 30 days after posting your job, ensuring you see the right people first.
All applications from candidates will automatically be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A real human (not a bot!) takes a look at your job description, sorts through all of the applicants, and prioritizes them based on the requirements you've indicated.
Candidates will be filtered on the basis of technical requirements, location, regional restrictions, experience level, etc. Please make sure these requirements are clear so we can filter them effectively! We do not remove any applicants from consideration, we simply prioritize which applicants you should look at first.
You will receive an email from email@example.com:
First batch - 3 days after posting your job
Second batch - 14 days after posting your job
Third batch - 30 days after posting your job
All batches will include a document that outlines the candidates’ contact information, the date the application was sent, and of course, the application itself (along with the candidate’s original email).
If you have any questions or have any feedback, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
