Why add tags to the candidates?
The main purposes of adding tags when screening candidates are:
- Helps organize candidate profiles better
- Streamline the review process
- Candidate's suitability for position and improvement of company culture
And finally, a more objective assessment.
How do tags work?
Adding tags to the application adds them directly to the candidate's profile.
When you add a candidate from your talent pool to a job posting, the application displays the tags previously assigned to the candidate.
🚨 The hiring managers will have access and will be able to see them only if they have the new Permission: See candidate non-sensitive information.
How to assign and create tags?
There are two different ways to assign and create tags, through a job application and with Tag Manager in the ATS Settings
Assign and create tags through an application:
- On your sidebar, click on Recruitment
- Click on Candidates
- Select a candidate
- Click on Add tag
- Add your tags
Tags can be added to a candidate from the candidate's application and from the candidate's profile. When adding a tag to the suggestions, it first shows existing tags, and contextually suggests creation if the user enters a tag that doesn't exist.
Assign and create tags through the tag manager (ATS Settings)
- On your sidebar, click on Settings
- Select Recruitment
- Scroll down to Tag manager
- Click on Manage tags
- You can create tags
Tag Manager allows users to create, edit, or permanently delete tags.
🚨 Hiring teams are strongly encouraged to agree on a taxonomy for tagging candidates within their organization because it helps to:
- Clarify job requirements
- Provide consistent candidate evaluations
- Foster team collaboration
- Streamline the selection process.
This results in a more effective, efficient, and unbiased hiring process, leading to better hiring results.
