At Shortlist, our product and tech teams love hearing feedback from our candidates and employers. Getting the opportunity to better understand how they use our platform and continue to help them hire more effectively and efficiently is one of the more rewarding aspects of our jobs. Over the last few weeks, our engineering team has been busy operating in stealth mode gearing up for a new product release. Today we are happy to share that we’ve recently launched a few exciting features for your use!
Read on for more information on each of these new release features. As always, if you’re looking for help in hiring, please get in touch!
LinkedIn Posting for Premium Shortlist Connect Partners
We know the challenges of sourcing and the importance of diversifying your channels to make sure you find the best candidates. We’re thrilled to announce that, through our partnership with LinkedIn, your Connect jobs will now be posted to LinkedIn at no extra cost.
Once you sign up for a premium Connect account, any role listed through Shortlist Connect will be posted to LinkedIn Jobs at no additional cost, as long as the role is live. When you use Shortlist Connect, your unlimited job postings also translate into unlimited posting to LinkedIn, a great way to source additional talent.
Your job will be listed on LinkedIn under your brand, making it accessible to any candidate browsing for a job on LinkedIn. The role will also appear on your LinkedIn company profile, in the Job section, without having to take any action on your end. Simply post the role on Shortlist Connect, and we’ll take care of the rest.
LinkedIn Job posting is a feature available in our Premium plan. You can try it for free for 30 days clicking here.
Mobile Experience on your Employer Dashboard (Talent Gallery)
Whether you’re a former, current, or future partner, we know the importance of being able to manage your hiring needs on the go. Whether it’s to check on the health of your candidate pipeline or review profiles to find your next hire. In our new release, we have implemented a mobile-optimized experience on our employer portal. You will now be able to review and take action on your candidates on the go, on your phone.
Upon login, you’ll now be able to easily manage, search, and sort through your jobs from your dashboard. Once you’ve selected a job to view your candidates, you’ll see a clean and user-friendly card view of your candidates. This allows you to view key information on each candidate before viewing their full application information.
Once you’ve selected the stage of your candidate funnel from which to evaluate your candidates, you can further narrow your search. We’ve added a ‘Sort’ and ‘Filters’ screen to make it easier to see applicants who meet the specific requirements you’re looking for. Sort to see your newest candidates, or filter through candidates based on their current location, years of experience, salary requirements, and more.
Once you’ve found the candidates you want to learn more about, just select their profiles to get more information about them. You’ll notice this new release is a bit different from the desktop view, as we wanted to give you the tools you need while on the go. If you click the icons at the top, you’ll be able to easily email, call, or check the LinkedIn profile of your candidates.
As you scroll down, you’ll be able to see the candidate’s complete application; from assessment details to notes from your Shortlist recruiter, as well as answers to chatbot questions. Best of all, you can easily go to the section you want to view by clicking on the header links.
Email Candidates Directly on Shortlist
Have you ever been in a situation where you wanted to ask one or two simple questions before deciding to schedule an interview? Or, wondered how to link the candidates in your Talent Gallery including any email communication you had with them?
If you have experienced any of the above problems, we’ve introduced an email functionality within Talent Gallery to solve that. You can reach out to candidates with all your questions and track their responses easily. No more switching between multiple tabs or trying to memorize all the conversations you had with the candidate. Send a message directly from the candidate’s profile and receive their replies as well.
Interview scheduling (Plus a Special Surprise!)
As we work towards increasing the productivity of hiring managers, we are happy to launch one of the most requested features – Interview Scheduling. We know firsthand how much of a pain coordinating with candidates can be, so we’ve added the ability to choose a time and send an invite email directly to the candidate.
As a bonus, we also built a video conferencing solution so that you don’t have to switch between Talent Gallery, your calendar, and a video tool. You can now schedule an interview that sends an email to you and the candidate with the video conferencing link and interview date/time. At the beginning of the interview, all you have to do is simply click on the video conferencing link sent to you and kick off the virtual interview. As the world moves towards remote hiring, this will easily allow you to schedule and conduct your interviews with Shortlist.
Best of all, these new features are automatically included on your Shortlist account at no added cost. We hope you’ll take some time to try them out, and feel free to let us know what you think!
Shortlist offers a wide range of recruitment solutions that help companies build great teams.
