A candidate will undergo multiple screening processes before getting hired by an organization. Our Hiring Plan feature works with the same concept.
Let us look at a candidate’s lifecycle while hiring through Skillate.
- Screen - this is the first stage for any candidate. By default, any candidate sourced directly or added to a job manually is added to the ‘screen’ stage of the respective job.
- HM Review - this stage ensures that the associated hiring manager reviews the candidate profiles and further approves or short-lists them.
- Assessment - You can move all the shortlisted candidates to the assessment stage. Here, you will have to enable any online assessment platforms available on Skillate before configuring the rounds.
- Interview Stages - These are the stages defined by recruiters to move a candidate to once they clear the ‘screen’ stage. The number of interview rounds can differ depending on the hiring plan that the organization follows. Interviews can be a physical interview or an online interview to invite one or more interviewers.
- Pre Offer - The stage ensures that all the candidates' documents and details during the interview process are valid. It is essential to confirm the authenticity of the candidate.
- Offer stage - Upon clearing all other stages of the hiring plan, recruiters can move a candidate to the 'Offer Stage'. Recruiters can draft the candidate’s offer letter and roll it out. Learn more about configuring offer letters here.
- Hired - Once a candidate accepts a job offer, you can mark the candidate as hired, and the candidate will not be listed for any other jobs.
- Rejected/On-Hold - Recruiters can reject or put a candidate on hold at any stage of the hiring process.
A candidate can be active in only one job recruitment process at a time (stage of a job). However, there is no limitation to the number of jobs they can apply for or add. Similarly, a candidate can be kept ‘on hold’ for only one job at a time.
You can move a candidate from an interview stage to another job’s active interview stage. Please note that the candidate will be made inactive in the previous job’s interview stage by doing so.
