What do Forms Look Like to Candidates?

Last Updated:

Forms allow companies to collect information about inbound candidates so that recruiters can qualify these candidates and action them accordingly.

Candidates go through multiple steps in these forms (some steps are on the same page):

Table of Contents

Fill in profile information
Fill in additional questions
A thank-you page



Candidates can sign-up to the form through their usual social network. We currently support 4 social logins:

  • LinkedIn
  • Facebook
  • Github
  • Google


Alternatively, candidates can sign-up using their email address, and creating a password.


Profile Information

After signing-up, the candidate will be able to enter their profile information:

  1. Their contact information, so that you can reach out to them
  2. First name
  3. Last name
  4. Primary phone number
  5. E-mail
  6. A website that contains their professional information (e.g. LinkedIn profile)
  7. Their current location
  8. Their most relevant education
  9. Degree or diploma
  10. University or institution
  11. Their most recent professional experience
  12. Current -or most recent- title
  13. Current - or most recent- company
  14. Their picture
  15. Connect their social networks
  16. Upload a document (CV/Resume, Cover letter, ….)

If the candidate choses to sign-up using one of the social networks, most of the information will be pre-filled using the information they have in their social profile.

Administrators can decide whether to add customized questions, extra information or social links in the form custom footer by configuring the settings within the 'Company' area of your settings page.

Additionally, the form creator can customize which of the fields listed above are to be included and determine which will be required for form completion and which will be optional. 


Additional Questions


After filling out the profile information, the candidate will be able to answer any additional questions the administrator may have added to the form.

Beamery Forms currently support the following question types:

  • Text Field
  • Text Area
  • Dropdown
  • Checkbox

Like with the standard information fields, company administrators can decide which of these fields are mandatory.


Thank You Page


After completing all questions, and submitting their information, candidates are then presented a thank you page.
