Vacancies help you to manage candidates that are in your hiring process. These could be candidates that have applied for a role, or candidates that your team has sourced and qualified as interested.
Your company's use of vacancies will depend on your internal workflows, your use of an ATS, and whether your ATS is integrated with Beamery. Ensure that you are familiar with the best practices prescribed by your organization.
In this article, learn how to manage candidates through Vacancy Stages.
How to Move Candidates Through Vacancy Stages
First, to find a list of all current vacancies, navigate to "Vacancies" - located within the CRM module, at the top left of the screen. You will see a list with all individual vacancies.
To view more details on a vacancy, click on the "More Info" link. You will see a more detailed description as per the image below.
You can manage the progress of your candidates as they proceed through each stage of your recruitment and interview process. Your recruitment funnel in Beamery may include stages such as:
- Phone Screen
Note: stages can be customized in Settings but only by Admin or Super Admin level users
Each vacancy shows a summary of how many candidates are sitting in each stage. To quickly access the list of candidates in a certain stage, click on the vacancy stage.
Click on the candidate's name to open their profile. Locate the "Vacancies" section on the right side of the profile under which you will find all roles the candidate has been considered for, as well as the stage they are in for each.
To update the stage, click on the stage drop-down menu and select the next stage you want to move the candidate to. Once clicked on, the stage will automatically update on the profile and in the vacancy.
You can also bulk update the stage of multiple candidates by selecting them within the Vacancy grid view. Once your desired candidates have been chosen, click the "Bulk actions" button and select the "Update vacancy stage" option. In the pop-up window that appears, select the stage from the drop-down menu that you wish to move the candidates to.
In addition to using "Bulk Actions" to update the vacancy stage of multiple candidates at one time, you are also able to remove candidates from a vacancy using the bulk action "Remove from vacancy".
