This article discusses the different sections of the Candidate Profile that Recruiters see and manage. The profiles are created by users on the candidate side. Recruiters also have the ability to add candidates to the pool.
You can find candidates by going to the Talent Community section of XCloud
Selecting this will take you to all candidates. Here there is a button to Create Candidate if the recruiter wishes to add to the candidate pool. You can also view folders that have been created using the View People Folders button.
In our example, search filters are used to narrow down candidates with supervisor backgrounds who have a 4-year college degree. Selecting the Action pulldown allows you to create a folder of people you might select. You can Sort the list by Relevance to your search or Create Date. By selecting the icons to the right of the Sort By pulldown, you can list the candidates by icon or text. The view below is the icon view.
Selecting the first candidate, we will go over the different sections of the profile.
The upper sections contain the candidate's work history on the left. This information is automatically parsed out based on information the candidate has provided. On the right is their contact information. If the client has a resume or other attachments, this will show beneath the contact information. As a recruiter, you can also upload attachments here. Between the Contact Info and the Resume/Attachments, are status radio buttons. More about these below.
The status radio buttons are configurable and control the information you want about candidates. In this example, we have buttons for rehire information, to contact the candidate or not, if they subscribe to automated emails, the type of candidate, their background check, and drug test information. The recruiter can select these boxes to mark them. For example, the recruiter can mark the candidate as someone Not Eligible to Re-hire. Several of these items the candidate can set as well from options and information in their profile portal. If the candidate does not want to receive automated job emails, they can set that or they can ask the recruiter to set that.
The lower section of the profile contains the user's Education history, again parsed from information provided by the candidate. It also lists any certifications. On the right side, you can see the candidate's application history. Next to that is a score which is the screening score. This is based on the screening during the application process, usually questions, that narrow down candidates who are eligible. A minimum score can be set when creating a new job to remove unqualified candidates at the application stage. Associated Folders shows any XCloud folders that include this candidate. Recent Activity will show actions the candidate has performed, such as job applications or profile updates. This is the same activity menu that a candidate sees on their profile portal. Assessments allow the recruiter to assign Assessment tests to the candidate that are part of the job application process. The candidate will see the tests assigned in their view on the candidate side. When completed, the Assessment section will display this with the Assessment score. Finally, at the bottom is the Notes section where the recruiter can add a note.
Once a note is entered, it will appear in the log at the bottom.
On each side of the candidate screen are arrows to view Previous and Next candidates in the pool you are viewing. There is also a select item at the top next to the candidate's name.
Using these items, you can scroll through your pool of candidates and mark the select checkbox of candidates you want to gather. You can then use the Profile Actions pulldown in the upper right to create a custom folder of the candidates you have selected. The pulldown also gives you the option to edit the candidate's information. If you want, you can also print out a candidate's information using the Print button.
