Applicant Ranking

What is Applicant Ranking?

Applicant Ranking is the sorting of job applicants based on how well their experience and qualifications meet the requirements stated on a job application during the applicant screening process. You will rank your applicants from the most qualified to the least qualified, giving you an organized list of candidates to work from.

What information helps determine where an applicant is ranked?

An applicant is ranked based on their experience, qualifications, answers to the job screening questions designed to automatically disqualify applicants that don't meet the minimum job qualifications, and your own interactions with them during interviews.

How does Applicant Ranking help me?

Applicant Ranking will make it easier for hiring managers/employers to identify which applicants they felt were the best fit for the job. With ApplicantPro, employers can make notes and flag the applicants that they feel are the most qualified for the position during the candidate selection process.
