Reviewing an application
When you login to the system, you will see the page we call the "Jobs list". You can see all of your active jobs and you can easily see which jobs have new applicants that you need to review.
When you click into the list of applicants for one of these jobs you will see there are applicant(s) that have a status of "Applied". Technically, the labelling you see highlighted in the image of "new" is not correct. It would be more technically correct to say that these applicants are "not yet processed" as any applicant who is listed on a status of "Applied" will be counted as a "new" in the jobs list.
If you click on an applicant in the applicant list view, you will open up the applicant record. This applicant record is really important. For most recruiters this page view is where they do most of their work, reviewing the relevant information and deciding on whether to progress or reject the applicant.
The applicant record has been designed to show the user all the information they need in order to make the correct resourcing decision on this applicant. The design is based on two windows with the left hand window showing the applicant's answers to the application form, the job details and the activity log.
The image below shows the application form view in the left hand window and the CV document in the right hand window. You can choose to change the view in either window by choosing from the heading options in the left hand window (options include: App form, Job details & Activity log) and in the right hand window you can change the view of the document shown by selecting from the list of available documents in the highlighted drop down list that currently shows "CV".
Please note: If your organisation does not accept CVs as part of their application process then you will see the application form in the right hand window.
You can also expand on the view of the document held in the right hand window by clicking on the white dots just above the CV and selecting "Open in New Window".
When you have reviewed the relevant information you can choose to update the applicant's status or rate them (see below).
Once you have updated the applicant record you can choose to either go back to the list of all applicants or stay in the applicant record view but progress to the next applicant.
