Checking Employment Application Status | ExactHire


When it comes to screening employment applications,
how long is your applicant status code list? Especially if you’re subject to compliance
reporting, the list can get very long and specific. For example, noting the exact reasons why
each candidate fails to meet minimum basic qualifications…experience, education, etc. And while you would want that level of detail
for your internal status assignments, you wouldn’t need to share that with candidates
externally. What if you could introduce a self-service
component that allows applicants to log into their profile and check on the status of their
own job application? Well, you can…and the best part…you get
to choose the public-facing label for each of your internal status codes. So, what you know as “Not Selected–Basic
Qualifications–Experience” would simply show up as “Not Selected” to the candidate
externally. But think about the positive application of
that feature…for what you use as “Sent to Hiring Manager” internally, you could
more strategically rename that status code “Screened by HR–Sent to Hiring Manager”
to serve as a positive reinforcement to candidates that would otherwise disengage without prompt
feedback about their employment application. This tool can be a competitive advantage in
this age of immediate feedback…as long as you screen your applications promptly. If you’re interested in turning on this
feature, the ExactHire Client Services team would love to help you. Please email them at [email protected] Once enabled, Admin users will see a new field
when adding or editing status codes called “Status Shown to Applicants.” Likewise, candidates, once they’ve logged
into their HireCentric profile, will see a public-facing version of your internal status
codes assigned to them. Thanks, and have a great day!
