Messaging with candidates just got easier! You no longer need to wait for a candidate to accept a connection invitation to continue a conversation, now you can message freely with candidates right away.
How It Works
Instead of inviting a candidate to connect, jump right into messaging to share details about your school or position(s), grab candidates' attention, and make the process more efficient. If they don't respond to your first message, now you're free to follow up!
As soon as candidates reply, their full contact information and resume will become visible to you.
Better Tracking of Candidates
We've added new tabs to your Search page so you'll be able to quickly see and manage your candidates.
- Prospects tab. Shows candidates in your pool that you haven't contacted yet.
- Contacted tab. Shows everyone you've sent a message to. Candidates in this tab will also have a badge to indicate if they’ve been unresponsive or passed on previous outreach from you (formerly an "invite").
- Bookmarked tab. Shows candidates from your pool that you've saved for later.
Export Candidates to CSV
To see a historical list of all candidates who have reciprocated interest and thus shared their full candidate information (full name, email address, resume) you can click on the “Export Data” button. More information on that is available here.
No more wondering what has come of your outreach.
In the past, candidates who declined invitations were removed from your pool to keep it clean. However, we've learned that many times candidates declined invitations as it related to the specific position mentioned in the message but would still be interested in hearing from you about better fit positions. If you’d like to contact them again, now you can! Find them in your "Contacted" tab, along with those who have responded.
Similarly, candidates you had contacted but who subsequently got hired or stopped job searching were also removed from your pool. While they're not in your default view, you can now still see all of these folks using the left hand filter “Inactive candidates” to better track the lifecycle of communications.
