Identifying relevant candidates for my jobs


Every candidate that enters your HireHunt talent pool, whether from a CV sent or an online application completed for one of your jobs, will be automatically ranked and compared to your jobs.

Instead of waking up to a hundred new emails, which you have to wade through, to browsing the most relevant right away.

All you need to do is create jobs that accurately represent who you are looking for and HireHunt does the rest with any incoming applicant or CV.

If you haven’t already, check out this how-to on creating a job.

To view a list of the most relevant shortlists for each job, click on ‘Jobs’ and then you will see a number under ‘relevant shortlisted’ for each job. That number represents the total amount HireHunt has determined have a high sense of relevancy to that position. Clicking on that number will show you those candidates in a list.

You are able to take further actions with whomever you find interesting there.

So how does HireHunt determine relevancy?

HireHunt uses a machine learning algorithm to build linguistic profiles for every known job title, based on thousands of applications it has studied.

Similar to how Artificial Intelligence can recognise your face to unlock your phone, HireHunt can recognise if a written application sounds like they know what they’re talking about, beyond basic keywords.

That’s not to say that HireHunt will only include the best applications and you should ignore the rest. Some applications might be considered excellent, despite low relevancy to the role. That’s why the relevancy scores in combination with the online screening applications is the best way to create shortlists, so that it’s not just based on what they have done, but also based on how they may perform in the role.

If you haven’t already, you should explore adding questions to applications and inviting candidates to apply to the online applications.
