So, one thing we really care about at Applied is candidate experience - this is where our automated candidate feedback comes in. We know that giving feedback is traditionally difficult and time-consuming so we've made it easy for you, and specific enough for candidates to actually be helpful.
Giving candidates feedback lets them know...
- ... where they need to improve for future applications
- ... that their application was actually looked at and reviewed properly and thoroughly (that they didn't waste time by applying!)
- ... your organisation cares about them having a positive experience, even if their application isn't successful
What does candidate feedback look like? Where can I see it?
There are two parts to our feedback:
Skills spyder graph
This contains the specific skills you've identified for a given role, one on each axis. The candidate will see how they performed on that skill, in comparison to the average score and the highest score for that skill.
A score scale for the short answer questions
Candidates will see their responses to the role's short answer questions and gives them an indication of how they scored for each answer. We never show candidates their exact scores - just a band scale.
To see what feedback will look like for an individual candidate, access the "Candidate" tab on the Manage page for the role and then follow the steps shown below:
