Ask any recruiter and they will tell you the scourge of job boards is application spam. On some sites, as many as 80% of job applications are from “no hope” candidates lacking the basic credentials needed to be considered for a role. It doesn’t take long for frustration to set in quickly causing recruiters to lose confidence in a particular site. AMMA miningoilandgasjobs.com
has a solution to this common problem.
Filtering candidates with 5 killer questions
What if you had a way to filter out undesirable candidates without having to go through each application? Even better, what if you could create custom criteria to increase the quality of candidates responding to your advert? While good candidates abound, your opening may have specific requirements job seekers ignore. AMMA miningoilandgasjobs.com lets you put filters in place to ensure you only see qualified applicants.
You can enter up to 5 questions, each in a format requiring a simple ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ answer. If a candidate answers ‘No’ to any of your questions, you never see their application. For example,
- Are you an Australian citizen or a 457 Visa holder?
- Have you worked on a mine site before?
- Do you have a Basic Scaffolding Certification (SB)?
Why do we have this feature? We know by reducing application spam, we dramatically increase recruiter satisfaction.
What happens if your filter questions remove ALL applicants?
In a competitive job market with an on-going skills shortage, sourcing the perfect candidate can be difficult. You can easily go in and remove some of your questions expanding the pool of applicants if you don’t find an ideal candidate right away.
The filter question feature on the AMMA miningoilandgasjobs.com
site is designed to improve the results recruiters and employers receive when they use our site. By reducing applicant spam and putting the hiring manager in a position to select the best candidate, we improve the overall effectiveness of the hiring process.
