Features in focus: Making it easier to select the right candidates
Quickly decide which candidates are worth a closer look
Making sure candidate CVs and SEEK Profiles tick all the boxes can be time consuming. It’s why we’ve introduced “matched qualities”, where we find qualities in a candidate’s profile and CV that match your job ad.
Key qualities, which include specific skills like Customer Service or familiarity with technology such as Microsoft Office, are highlighted with a sparkle on the candidate preview page. This makes it easier for you to quickly screen and shortlist candidates you’re bound to click with.
We’re also showing more information about the candidate where you can easily see it, including their work history, previous applications with your company, emails you’ve sent in the past, plus any notes and attachments. When you open a job ad, you can see ‘Notes’ for each candidate and review any updates you or your colleagues have made.
Tools and insights for all in our Advertiser Centre
Previously only accessible to hirers who post SEEK ads via our website, hirers that post ads via recruitment software will now have access to deeper candidate information and management tools in our Advertiser Centre.
Alongside access to candidate application and SEEK profile information, hirers can benefit from AI powered candidate relevance rankings, shortlists and advanced filters, CERTSY pre-verified credentials signals, plus the ability to copy a job ad.
Fast filtering of candidates via screening questions
We know hirers want clear answers on critical screening questions for their roles. That’s why we’ve introduced the ability to filter candidates based on responses to help you find great applicants fast.
You can now use up to eight screening questions on your job ad, and filter applicants based on candidate responses, including ‘must-have’ questions that are specific to the needs of your role. Alternatively, you can also utilise our recommended top five questions supplied based on the information in your job ad.
Pre-verified credentials that help you spot qualified candidates fast
More than 80% of hirers say having pre-verified credentials helps them to shortlist. That’s why we’ve made it easier for hirers to see which candidates have verified their credentials with Certsy. These include Australian University qualifications, Right to Work, Police Check, Working with Children, Driver’s Licence, COVID-19 vaccination status, and skills such as Excel basics.
How can I tell who has verified their credentials?
First, sign in to the Advertiser Centre and view your candidate applications for the job ad. You’ll see a purple highlight against each candidate’s name for anyone that has a Certsy verified credential, along with the Certsy verified tick for Right to Work, or their COVID-19 vaccination status.
