For your potential future candidates who might not be ready to apply for a job yet, we created Connect. By connecting, the candidate lets you know they're curious about your company, and which department, role, and location they're interested in. This also allows them to subscribe to future job openings per their choice, and you'll have a (potentially amazing) addition to your candidate bank. Win-win! 🏆

So in short, you could say that this is our take on spontaneous applications. Read more about Connect here

To ensure the quality of your connected candidates, take a few minutes to set up Connect. This structure is also shown on your career site.

Only Company Admins can set the structure for Connect.

1. Departments & Roles

First things first, let’s talk about your departments. Adding departments to your account has a lot of benefits, not the least for your potentially interested candidates as it gives the candidate an insight into which areas of work your company has. This means the candidate already from the get-go can tell you what they are interested in. Head over to Settings → Company → Departments and here, click + New department to create a new department.

Once you’ve added your departments, you can also define them further for your Connectees by adding the different roles within the department. Do so by clicking + New role next to the department name under the Roles section.

2. Locations

Next up, add all your different locations. This allows your candidates to show you where they are interested in working. To add a new location, click + New location and enter the address.

3. Questions

Make sure to find out what you want to know about each candidate from the very beginning by asking Connect questions. To make it manageable for you, we've made the questions in three levels:

  • General connect questions

  • Department questions

  • Role questions. 

General Connect questions

Set up questions you would like all candidates to answer, regardless of what department/role they are interested in. It might be something you're always curious about or a skill that's always important to you. Add these questions under Settings → Recruitment → Connect

Department questions

Secondly, add questions that are related to a specific department. Whenever a candidate connects with that department, they will get to answer these questions. You add them by going to Settings → General → Departments and then clicking the specific department where you will find the section for Connect questions.

Role questions

Finally, you can add questions related to a specific role within a department. Take the opportunity to find out if the candidate has the skills necessary for the role. Add these questions by going to Settings → General → Departments, and here in the department field click on the specific role.
