What about applicants?

The process for applicants is straightforward and mostly transparent. It has been designed to simulate an in-person screening, and allows for intervention before the applicant has been contacted by the system.

  1. Applicant applies on your landing site, filling in their details and answering your multi-choice questions.
  2. The system decides based on those details if they should proceed.
  3. They receive an automatic e-mail after six hours has passed.

The six-hour delay in the system happens to give your HR users a reaction time to cancel either the automatic decline or acceptance of an applicant, preventing accidental e-mails.

Note: The six-hour delay can be adjusted to your organization’s requirements by contacting our support team.
