Updating the status of an applicant is super important for three reasons.
- It helps you manage your shortlist so you know who's been reviewed, who's been short or longlisted, who has been declined, and who has been hired.
- If you use LiveInterview to streamline your interview process, the status of a candidate who is being interviewed will show in LiveInterview.
- This status tells PredictiveHire whether or not the candidates are the right type of people to recommend for your role. The more signals we get for who is and isn't a match, the more accurate the predictions become. Think of it a little bit like Netflix - the more you put in, the better the recommendations get.
How you can use the statuses:
NEW: This is someone you haven't reviewed yet
LONGLIST: Candidates you have phone screened
SHORTLIST: Candidates you are bringing in to interview
HIRED: This person is offered the job
DECLINED: This person does not have the ability to do the job
N/A: This candidate is ineligible (e.g. wrong type of visa, cannot work required hours)
