Everything looks different, what happened?
We know looking for the right candidate takes time and effort so we’ve streamlined our process to make it faster and easier for you to hire tech talent through OfferZen.
Our new Positions feature allows you to easily manage your job specification, search criteria, and hiring team for a specific role in one convenient place. Simply follow our handy wizard to define a Position and you’re all set for your job search. Head over to your Positions page, where you can create a new Position, or search for candidates on your existing Positions.
How will Positions improve the way I find candidates?
You should create a Position for each unique role you're hiring for. By using a Position you will:
Gain access to Position analytics - The number of candidates you’ve reached out to, track your accept/decline ratio on interview requests and number of hires you've made.
Save your search criteria - Define your search criteria once-off and you’ll be able to search our list with a single click when you log in.
Receive daily alerts for your hiring team - You can define the hiring team for each Position and receive daily alerts on any new candidates matching your saved criteria.
Easily attach a job specification when you reach out - Define your job specification and we’ll automatically send it to every candidate you contact on OfferZen using that Position.
How do I create a Position?
You can create a new Position by clicking on the Positions tab on the main candidate list and clicking on the purple “Create a Position” button on the left hand side of the page.
Just follow our handy Position creation wizard and you're all set. You will need the following information to define a Position
Page 1 - Basic Positions info - What is the title for this Position, how many people are you hiring, what broad area of work is this Position in?
Page 2 - Define your search criteria - Define where your hiring, any specific roles this Position needs to fill, the salary band, etc. Keep in mind that these are the criteria we will use to filter our list for this position, so think hard about the type of candidates your would consider for this Position, as opposed to the strict requirements on paper.
Page 3 - Define your team - Simply tick the people on your OfferZen hiring team that are involved in this Position. They will be informed of all new candidates going live on OfferZen that match the criteria you just defined. Don’t see someone on your hiring team you're looking for? Invite them to OfferZen on this page.
Page 4 - Add your job spec - This will be sent to all candidates you reach out to using this Position. You can edit it later so don’t be too worried about missing anything. Feel free to copy and paste any existing job specifications you might have in here. If you don’t have anything on hand, write down a paragraph or two mentioning:
- What your new hire will be working on
- What’s exciting about this position
- Who are the team they’ll be working with
Keep in mind that your Positions will not be visible anywhere publicly, no one will apply directly to it. You will need to send it along with an Interview Request to any candidates you're interested in.
How do I send a Position to a candidate?
Simply click on the Position you want to search for and look through the resulting list of matches. When you’ve found someone you like, click on their profile to view more of their information. You will be able to reach out to them by sending an interview request on the right side panel. Make sure you select the correct Position using the “Position” drop down menu. The candidate will then get access to the job description you included once they receive your Interview Request.
Who can see my Position?
Candidates will only see your Position once they have received an Interview Request from you. Your Position will not appear on any public job boards or on your OfferZen profile, nor will candidates be able to apply to any of your positions directly.
I don’t have a complete job specification, do I need one?
To create a position you will need to add a job description. This does not to be heavily formal, a brief summary of the job, the team involved and what the candidate can be excited about in this Position will suffice. If you do have a formal job spec, that’s great! Feel free to use that here.
I just logged in and I already have Positions set up, but I didn’t make them?
We have merged two old features into Positions. If you previously had created any Jobs on OfferZen, or set up any Saved Searches we have converted them to Positions for you. These converted Positions won't necessarily have all the data needed to make a good match yet.
You'll need to click on each of the Positions and then edit the details + filters in order to start seeing candidates that match your Position.
How do I get metrics on my position
All positions saved by your company will be visible from your dashboard, from here you will be able to gather insights on your hiring progress for each positions. Get metrics how many hires you’ve made, number of interview requests sent, and your accept to decline ratio.
