Candidates who are "in-progress" have started but not yet completed the Plum Discovery Survey.
After 2, 24, and 48 hours that a candidate initiated the Plum Discovery Survey, Plum sends reminder emails encouraging these applicants to login and complete their assessment. However, there are some applicants who choose not to complete the assessment or realize they do not want the job after looking into the job further.
Options for the employer:
- Assume the candidates are no longer interested in the position. Normally about 5-10% of applicants do not complete the Plum assessment and remain "in-progress." We have found that this is normally due to a low interest in the job in the first place and that they simply wanted to apply to many jobs and upload their resume to as many jobs as possible.
- You can setup your own internal reminder cadence or follow up with the candidates individually to encourage them to complete the application.
