Searching for candidates on OfferZen doesn't have to be a high-effort task. Here are two tips to help you use the candidate list smartly.

Shortlist candidates by favouriting them

You can use the Favourite feature on the candidate list to quickly shortlist candidates you're interested in looking at in more detail, bringing to your hiring team's attention, or getting their opinions about candidates before reaching out to them.

Note: candidates do not get notified if you favourite them.

Leverage the power of positions by favouriting candidates for a specific position by clicking on the down arrow on the Favourites button and selecting the relevant position.

Note: When you search using positions, candidates will be automatically favourited for that position.

You can find candidates you and your hiring team have favourited in the Favourites list, available in the main menu.

Hide candidates you won’t reach out to

If you’d like to remove a candidate from appearing on your list, you can use the Hide feature. The candidate will then be moved to your Hidden list and will no longer appear in your main candidate list.

When you hide candidates, they are only hidden for you. Your team members on OfferZen will continue to see them.

This is really useful for cleaning up your list so that you don't spend time viewing candidates you've already decided not to reach out to.

You can view your hidden candidates by clicking on the Show hidden candidates checkbox in your search bar. Candidates that you have previously hidden will appear in the list with a Hidden label.

You can always bring hidden candidates back to your main list by clicking the Unhide button.

Note: When you hide a candidate while viewing the results for a specific position, the candidate will be hidden for every future search.
