Solutions Spotlight: Candidate screening


This is part of our series of Solutions Spotlight blog posts demonstrating custom solutions that can be built within HighQ Collaborate using the iSheets module.

Candidate screening

Screening candidates for a position is time consuming. If a role attracts many applicants, it can be a full time job simply to read and evaluate each application that comes in.

The candidate screening solution in iSheets makes sorting applications for internal vacancies very easy. The solution automatically screens candidates as they apply and sends you email alerts when candidates that meet set criteria submit applications.

The solution enables applicants to apply directly in the iSheet, where they fill in a questionnaire of fields designed by you. In order to submit their applications, applicants must meet certain criteria you have set, such as level of experience or certain qualifications. Once they have successfully completed the form they have the option to upload their CV.

As candidates apply, they are automatically added to a database for that role. You can access the database at any time to review candidates, using the filtering options to view candidates meeting certain criteria.

You can set up email alerts that send you digests (daily, weekly or as it happens) that sends a digest of candidates that meet certain criteria that you have set up. This means you don’t even have to access the database, instead you will be alerted as soon as a candidate you might like to interview applies.
