Features to Support Better Candidate Tracking

Previously, when a candidate became inactive on our platform, we hid them from your view (so you could more easily focus on your remaining candidates). That may have left you wondering what came of your outreach or what happened with a candidate you'd been in contact with previously.

We heard you.

Now you can keep track of candidates who have become inactive with our Search page features: Inactive Filter and Contacted Tab.


Inactive Filter

Have you ever come back to send a message to a candidate and noticed they had disappeared? No more! You can now filter to see inactive candidates in your pool.

They'll have a clear "Inactive" badge to let you know that this candidate has indicated they have either been hired or are not actively looking for a job at the moment.

Contacted Tab

The contacted tab helps you view candidates who you've already reached out to directly from the search page.

Once you've sent a message, the candidate card will move to the "Contacted" tab and will remain anonymized unless they respond to a message. You can now sort this tab to clearly see who has/has not responded.

Note: Candidates tend not to respond to a message when they're not interested in the specific position you reached out about. This is often not an indication that they are disinterested in your school in general. It is totally acceptable to reach out again down the line to find out what position types they're open to!

We hope these features will provide you with:

  • Greater transparency into the lifecycle of candidates over time

  • Ability to track who you've been in contact with

  • Insight on candidates you did hire through Selected
