Attributing a source to a candidate, makes it possible to track and report on where candidates, and ultimately successful hires are being found. This enables organisation’s to make more informed investment decisions and maximise their return on investment. There are two different forms of source in Beamery:
Creation source - is automatically applied by Beamery and relates to the mechanism by which the candidate was created in your CRM (e.g., Beamery Extension, CSV import, ATS, Manual.)Source - is selected from a list configured in account settings and relates to how the user came across the candidate profile in the first place (e.g., Agency, Careers site, Linkedin, Campus event.)
Why are Sources Useful?Searching and Filtering
- Source and creation source can be used in the filter panel as the basis for refining a list of contacts.
- Source can be used as a filter to select recipients within a campaign.
- Both source and creation source can be used as a filter in a recipe to refine and limit the candidates to whom the recipe is applied.
Source can be reported on using Data Explorer as a Visualize by or Split by option. This enables users to track, for example, the top sources for all candidates or for hired candidates, broken down by a particular skill, location, or candidate attribute.
