Candidate Pools is an effective way to highlight strong candidates for a position.
Go to the Requisitions tab in order to see the open requisitions on the Manage Reqs page (also referred to as the Job Manage page)
Choose a Title and click the number in the Candidates column to get a list of candidates for that position. For our example, we select 4 for the Cashier/Clerk Title.
Select one of the candidates to get the candidate profile page. For our example, we select Mary Stoner. We then go to the Actions drop-down menu and select Add to Candidate Pool.
Select the submit button next to the Action drop-down. This will take you to the hot candidates page. Select the category drop-down and pick a job (this category list can be updated). Add recruiter comments with your name so other recruiters know it is your comment. Then click Add.
Can now see that Mary’s profile has a ‘Hot Add’ note for this position.
Now check if there is a candidate pool for this job based on our action. Go to Candidates and then Candidate Pools.
Select the job, in this case Cashier.
Can see we added Mary Stoner with the comment. If select Mary, can see her profile.
