Managing applications from Jobserve
When you post a job on Jobserve, applications will arrive via your given email address. Even if you provide an address created purely to gather applications, you’ll still need to keep on top of that email inbox over the following weeks.
Many companies use an applicant tracking system to help manage the flow of candidates. Instead of individual Jobserve applications arriving by email, an applicant tracking system will automatically gather applications into a searchable candidate database. A profile is created for every candidate which can be shared with your co-workers or hiring team. The system will also keep track of feedback and evaluations, streamlining your communications and ultimately, your recruiting process.
Using IWA with Jobserve
Collecting applications from Jobserve into your IWA account is easy. You can still gather your candidates in your IWA pipeline for review. Once you’ve used IWA to post the job to your chosen free job sites or bought any additional premium posts, you’ll see the job shortlink on the Your Network step:
When you’re completing the details of your job post on Jobserve, copy this job shortlink into the ‘Online Application URL’ field in the ‘Application Information’ section of the page:
Now, candidates who apply through your Jobserve post will be visible in the ‘applied’ stage of your IWA pipeline, ready for review with your team.
To see if an applicant tracking system is right for your company, try IWA free for 15 days; there’s no credit card or downloads required and you can invite as many team members as you need.
