Q. How can I view candidates for a particular job?

First, select the job role for which you wish to see candidates from the left panel.

Next to the job title, you'll be able to see the total number of candidates for the job.

The first stage is of "Active candidates" i.e. candidates who are actively looking for a job and have updated their profiles in the last 60 days.

The second stage is of "Passive candidates" i.e. candidates which are relevant for the job you posted but, aren't actively looking for a job.

The third stage is of "Low matching candidates" i.e. applications from candidates who don't match your requirements.

Q. What all details can I view about a candidate without losing credits?

Q. What are the actions that I can perform on a candidate's profile?

Once you have looked at candidate information, on the right-hand side you can see whether the candidate applied for the job posting or not. If they have applied, you can see when they applied for the same.

Just below that there is a "Send email" button which is used to send personalized emails to the candidate if he /she is relevant for the job posting. The grey tick beside the send email button means that the other recruiter who is added to the job has already viewed the profile or it has been viewed by you for any other job which might have been posted earlier. A green tick means you have already viewed the resume.

Once you click on the send email button, the system will automatically fetch the relevant template based on whether the candidate has applied to the job or not. You can even edit the text of the template before clicking on the "Send Email" button. Learn how personalised email templates work here.
