:Recruit Tip of the Month

Personalize Your :Recruit Applicant Status List to Fit Your Needs

How it works: As your candidates move through different stages in the application process, you have the power to update their statuses individually or in bulk at each stage.

📩You can configure these status changes to automatically send tailored emails, providing support and keeping them engaged on their journey with your company (think Employer Branding).

For Example: If you decide a candidate isn’t the perfect fit for the current role, but might be a match for future opportunities, you can assign them a ‘talent pool’ status. This could trigger an automated email inviting them to stay connected through company newsletters and social media links. 🔥
