For your potential future candidates who might not be ready to apply for a job yet, we created Connect. With Connect, the candidate can tell you that they're curious about your company, and which department, role, and location they're interested in, as well as 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.
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 works your company has. This means the candidate already from the get-go can tell you what they are interested in. To add a new Department you head over to your general settings. Here, click + New department.
Once you’ve added your departments, you can also make it even more defined for your connectees by defining the roles within the department. Do so by clicking + New role next to the department.
Next up, add your 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.
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, and Role questions.
General Connect questions
Set up questions you want all candidates to answer, independent 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 Setting→Connect.
Secondly, add questions that are related to a specific department. Whenever a candidate connects with that department, they will get to answer that question. You add these questions by going to Settings→Departments and then to the specific department and see the Connect questions.
Thirdly, 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->Departments, to the specific Department, and click on the specific role.
