Using the Indeed Employer Dashboard to Manage Recruitment
To hire effectively, it’s important to have simple, organised access to applicant resumes, job listings, candidate communication and recruitment results. Notifications of new applicants by email is convenient, but managing a hiring campaign requires tools to organise information and track progress. The employer dashboard keep all your crucial recruitment data in one place.
Here’s how to use your dashboard to organise your recruitment.
Get a comprehensive view of your campaign
The Overview tab in the dashboard provides a view of open, paused and closed jobs as well as how many people have applied to each position. From this tab, you can see how many people you’ve phone screened, how many you’ve interviewed and how many you’ve made offers to. This lets you know where each candidate is in the hiring process. Other stakeholders in your company can also leave feedback on candidates, and their input is shown on this page.
Manage your jobs
The Jobs tab on the employer dashboard displays a list of all jobs currently available at your company, and shows how many people have clicked on and applied to each job. On this page, you can also see the budget you’ve set for each job. Change any aspect of your posting by clicking “edit job” beneath the job title.
Evaluate your candidates
From the Candidates tab of your dashboard, you can preview applicants to your jobs at a glance. Click on a name for a closer look at an applicant’s qualifications and expertise. You can also forward resumes to other hiring stakeholders for feedback. When you’re ready to act, email the candidate or schedule an interview from this page. Make notes about candidates or star them for later review. As you move through the process, you can indicate whether a candidate has been screened, interviewed, rejected or hired by changing the candidate status.
Track your progress
To get a detailed understanding of how your job posting is performing, you can generate a performance report from this dashboard. The report shows how many views, clicks and applies your job is receiving. These clues can help you create more insightful, keyword-rich job descriptions that get your post into more — and more relevant — search results.
