Searching for Candidates by Name / Email Address / Candidate ID
To search for a candidate by name (either first name or last name), email address, or candidate ID, enter the details you are searching for into the search bar and hit enter. A list will then appear to choose what criteria you want to search by.
Select the criteria that you wish to search by and the list of candidates will appear who have met that criteria.
Searching for Candidates by Location / Job Title
To search for candidates who are in a certain location, or have indicated on their application form that they are currently working in a particular job, in the search bar enter either the location or job title and the dropdown list will appear for you to select the criteria to search by.
Select the location or job title, and all candidates that have indicated that they are in that location or currently doing that job will appear.
