Assigning a Recruitment Workflow

The importance of assigning a Recruitment workflow is that it steps the applicants through your defined recruitment process automatically, and also allows for correspondence to be automatically sent when an action or point is triggered.

Example: If we had setup our Recruitment Workflow to be a 3 step process. [1. Acknowledge, 2. Interview, 3. Offer]
Jim applies for the vacancy, Jim could receive an automated email Acknowledging that we had received his application. and when utilise the stepping tool and progress Jim's application to the Interview stage Jim may also receive an automated email advising Jim that he has been progressed to the next stage.
Alternatively, we could decline Jim's application and Jim may receive an automated email advising of an unsuccessful application.

  1. When setting up a new vacancy we can select an existing recruitment workflow, and before publishing change the workflow to a new or modified workflow if we desire to.
  2. To modify or create a new recruitment workflow users should select the Maintenance TAB and then select the Recruitment Workflow folder.

It is important to remember that if you choose to modify an existing recruitment workflow, and this workflow is in use by other Vacancies the workflow will be modified for all vacancies.

Assigning a Hiring manager

The Hiring Manager is the person responsible for recruiting the candidate.
The Hiring Manager drop down contains all managers and recruiters in the organisation.
If you do not see the person you are looking for in the Hiring manager drop down may have to make them a Manager or add them as a Recruiter.

Selecting a default Interview Panel

The Default Interview Panel automatically advises the selected people that an applicant has been invited for an Interview at a particular date and time.

  1. Select the people who should attend the interview for this vacancy.
  2. Select the [Save] button.

The Description field and using a Word Document

This will provide you with a window to paste your Microsoft Word text into.
