Here is a quick walkthrough of Plum Recruiting!
The Job dashboard displays a default filtered view of the job requisitions that you are a team member of.
Click on the Clear button to unlock the view of all the jobs that you have permission to view.
Use the global search bar to quickly locate a requisition or to find the jobs that an individual is a candidate to.
You can search by candidate first name, last name or email, or by job internal title.
Use the filter button to filter your job view by new applicants, job status or date created.
To add a job, click on the Add Job button to fill in the job details.
If you are using your own system to collect resumes and cover letters, you can opt out from collecting the documents through Plum. Click Next.
You can add a job description or skip that step before clicking on Create job.
Within each job there are four tabs: candidates, Match Criteria, team and job info.
The job info tab is where you can find the unique application link to the job, to share with candidates. It also displays the job details and description.
Navigate to the Team tab to view or invite the members of your hiring team.
Invite team members to the job and indicate if you want to request their Match Criteria Survey contribution or not.
Request the Match Criteria input from individuals that know and understand well the requirements of the job such as hiring managers or current high performers in the role, for example.
When adding top performers, or to limit the visibility of certain team members to the job, grant them the limited permission. This way, you can collect their Match Criteria contribution without giving them access to the job or Recruiting dashboard.
Team members will receive an email notification informing them that they have been added to the hiring team for that job or, if they were selected as expert contributors, an email with a link to complete the Match Criteria Survey.
Best practice is to request the input of 3 to 8 expert contributors to your Match Criteria.
You do not need the Match Criteria to be finalized before starting to collect candidate applications. However, you should only analyze candidate data when all Match Criteria contributions are final, as modifications will impact the candidate match scores.
Once your Match Criteria Survey results are gathered, you can see the prioritization of success criteria for the job in the Match Criteria tab.
Finally, in the candidates tab, you will see the candidate scores against the Match Criteria established for the role, and you will be able to compare them side by side.
By default, the candidates are sorted by application date, the most recent being at the top. You can sort the candidates by Match Score, last name or pipeline stage.
Use the filter button to segment candidates: by applied or prospected date range, by one or more pipeline stages, and by great matches.
Click on a candidate to learn more about them. For a more detailed view of a candidate profile, you can dive into the results by clicking on the talent rings or by clicking on the drop-down button.
You can use the Rediscovery Button at the candidate level to prospect the candidate into other jobs, or at the job level, to find other suitable candidates for the current job.
