Customized job applications
Every job is different. So why use one job application or job format for all jobs? With this system, you can customize every job to match your specific and unique requirements. This includes an up-front collection of auto-scored question sets, document collection, employment and education histories, and references which enables you to evaluate applicants on a highly comparative basis.
Job-specific question types
Job-specific question sets gather and present essential applicant information well beyond that of a resume. With our out-of-the-box question-builder technology, you can build and mix text-based questions, multiple choice questions, multi-select questions, yes/no questions, and file upload questions. You can also create question sets that appear auto-scored in the applicant’s file.
Iterative job applications
KeldairHR’s proprietary iterative application feature enables you to obtain supplemental in-depth information following receipt of an initial right-sized job application With this two-step process you can quickly sort through initial applications and obtain more information from good-fit applicants in order to make informed processing and hiring decisions.
Sentiment & scorecards
From resumes to question sets to interview notes, you can apply a sentiment to various elements of a job applicant’s file — and continue to do so as the applicant file evolves. The system saves your inputs to a scorecard, thereby providing you with an at-a-glance view of each applicant’s fit characteristics.
Overall score & recommendations
Eventually, every applicant reaches one of two stages — hired or rejected. Your hiring team can collaborate from inside the system to reach an overall recommendation for each applicant. This includes commenting in specific areas of the applicant file, scoring, applying a flag type, @mention communications, sharing files, and “Like” indicators in each element of the overall application.
KeldairHR’s interview technology is both user-friendly and applicant-friendly. Instead of a single date and time, multiple dates and times may be offered to an applicant from which to choose. Phone, in-person, or video interviews may also be offered. A user may direct one or more interviewers to conduct or participate in the interview. In addition, interview confirmations are tracked in the system’s primary calendar and dashboard and may be uploaded onto individual calendars. This is scheduling at its best.
Structured Interviews & Interview Guide
Using a structured interview process can lead to more consistent hiring decisions. With KeldairHR’s Interview Guides, you can ensure your hiring managers and interviewers are asking applicants the same questions in the same order. And of course, your Interview Guides can be set up on a job-by-job basis to achieve your preferred mix of questions. When properly constructed, Interview Guides and Structured Interviews promote compliance and remove bias – a win for better hiring practices across your organization.
Reference checks are an important step in the applicant evaluation process. They verify candidate-provided information, furnish additional insight on past performance, and help determine the candidate’s fit for your organization. KeldairHR’s electronic reference check feature enables you to build electronic reference check forms, send system-generated reference requests, and automatically receive reference replies in the applicant’s file — all without having to track down and talk with the reference. Plus, if you wish to call a reference instead, you can always add notes and even rate the applicant’s references.
Rejections & disposition codes
Applicant rejections are as important as making hiring decisions. KeldairHR’s thoughtful rejection workflow treats applicants with respect. You can select from multiple rejection email messages, reject applicants individually or in bulk, and you can apply a disposition code to each rejected applicant to run reports on common causes for rejection. This rejection feature automates this most unpleasant task, while paying respect to those who looked to your organization for employment.
Centralized applicant files
The applicant file is where everything gets done. And with this system, you have a user-friendly, organized file for each and every applicant. The actions you take are stored and visible to you and your team, thereby eliminating the confusion factor. You’ll always know what was done — and more importantly, what needs to be done next.
