Hiring stages widget added to job requisitions 

Ashley is an HR recruiter whose company is ready to start hiring again. Taking a look at the company, Ashley sees that there are two types of positions open: standard minimum-wage positions and upper-level management positions. Previously, applicants would have to go through the same stages for each position, regardless of what type/level the it was. Now, with this latest recruitment enhancement, Ashley can set different global hiring stages for each job. Recruiters can create hiring stages that are unique to each job. This allows recruiters like Ashley to gain more in-depth information for higher-level positions and quickly funnel applicants through.

Creating job requisition templates using existing requisition

So, now that Ashley has set unique hiring stages for her two open positions, she needs to create a job template for each requisition, which sometimes isn’t the quickest or easiest task in the world. Lucky for her, instead of taking time out of her busy day to create templates for each open position, she now can use an existing job requisition as a template. This saves time while simultaneously creating templates as job requisitions are posted. Ashley is able to get those job requisitions out the door and posted faster than ever.

Resume required for both quick apply and traditional applicants 

Ashley is almost all set to post her job requisition when she sees another Workforce Ready enhancement! There is a box she can check right before she posts to make it mandatory for applicants to upload a resume before they can apply. This is great! The upper-level management positions need to have a resume. By checking this box, it ensures they won’t be missing any applicants’ resumes. If the box is left unchecked, it will be optional for a resume to be uploaded with the application. This  is perfect for the standard minimum-wage requisition where an immediate resume may not be needed.

Multiple resumes allowed for both quick apply and traditional applicants 

The job requisitions are now posted. For Ashley’s company, it’s important that it’s easy for applicants to apply and to be engaged from the start. This helps them recruit top talent. Two of the requisitions catch the eye of Matt, who just recently left his last job. Although the jobs are in the same department, Matt wants to tailor his resume to each position. Thanks to this enhancement, he now can upload a different resume to each requisition. He updates his resume and applies for both jobs, using the quick apply feature.

Email notifications for quick apply applicants 

Matt’s applications are submitted and ready to be reviewed. Right after he applies, he receives an email letting him know his applications have been received and giving him information on how to access the job portal and set up his profile. This enhancement benefits both Matt and Ashley. Matt knows that his application has been received, and he can access the job portal to check for updates. Ashley saves time and pushes Matt through the process quickly and efficiently.
