A bunch of candidates have applied to the role you created - 🎉 hooray! - and now you’re ready to start reviewing applications, with a few other team members.
This part of the Applied hiring process is probably the most different from what you’re used to - we understand if you’re a little nervous about it. No need to fret. Here’s what you do:
- Access your Dashboard and click on the relevant role
- Click on the Manager tab, from the column on the left-hand side of the page
- Select the candidates you want to review (note that by default, only candidates who have submitted their application and haven't already been rejected will be displayed)
- Click on the yellow "X selected candidates" button on the right-hand side of the page and select "Blind review these applications" from the dropdown menu
- Select the number of reviews per answer that you want. The default is always set to 3, and this is generally what we would recommend.
Note that the total number of reviews done, will be the number of all candidate answers multiplied by the number of reviews per answer you choose.
Here's an example if you want to know how many reviews you'll be allocating to your team:
10 candidates answer 4 questions each = 10 x 4 = 40 answers in total to review
If you choose 3 reviews per answer, you'll be reviewing 40 answers 3 times.
3 reviews per answer X 40 answers = 120 reviews overall
- You can select reviewers by ticking the box next to their name.
The more reviewers you add, the fewer answers they will each review, or a lower review burden for each reviewer
- Click on "add another reviewer" and fill in the relevant details to add more reviewers
Here's an example if you want to know how the reviewer burden changes depending on the number of reviewers you involve.
For the 120 total answers that need to be reviewed:
- Once you're happy, click on "deal out these reviews to team members" - exciting! Your reviewers will receive an email notification letting them know you've invited them to review.
- Sit back and wait for the reviews to come in
Extra bits to remember:
- Admin users or users with full access to a specific role are the only ones with permission to allocate reviews
- Not all reviewers will score all answers. This will only happen if the number of reviews per answer is equal to the number of reviewers.
