The Revamped Basic Job

The Revamped Basic Job

In today's job market, finding the right candidate for a job can be a daunting task. With so many applicants per job, it can be hard to identify the right fit. However, our revamped Basic Job recruitment solution aims to make the process of matching employers with job seekers much easier.

How it works

  1. The Basic Job now has a job matching algorithm that uses real-time data analysis to help employers find relevant applicants more effectively. The algorithm takes into account a wide range of factors, including job function, years of experience, location, education, industry, and more to help identify the most relevant candidates.

How to use it

  1. Start by posting a job description from the ATS
  2. Soon as applications start rolling in, head over to the jobs section
  3. Once you are in the jobs section; to view applicants who have been sorted by relevance, click on the title of a job that has applications.

Benefits for you

  1. One of the main benefits of this new Basic Job is that it will significantly reduce the time and effort required to fill a position. Instead of spending hours searching through profiles and resumes, employers can simply advertise an open position using the Basic Job recruitment solution, and the algorithm will tag and sort profile of applicants who match the job requirements.
  2. Another advantage of this revamped Basic Job is that it can help eliminate bias in the hiring process. Traditional hiring methods are prone to subjective factors, such as a candidate's appearance, which can lead to discrimination. However, the algorithm only considers objective factors, such as a candidate's qualifications and experience, which can help level the playing field and ensure that the best candidate is chosen for the job

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What does Relevance Ranking mean?
    Relevance ranking happens when a candidate is sorted as "relevant" to your job description; it means that they possess the right job function match, experience level, and qualifications that match the requirements listed in your job description.

  1. Can I see the specific criteria that were used to rank a candidate as relevant?
    Our software matches candidates to your job description based on key criteria, including job function, experience, qualifications, industry, location, and platform activity.

This weighted scoring system was developed with significant employer and recruiter feedback.

What's next?

Of course, no algorithm is perfect, and there may be some limitations in the new Basic Job. For example, it may not take into account certain soft skills or personality traits that could be saved in the CV. We are fully cognizant of this limitation and that aspect of the algorithm will be added in our next major release.
