The main Manage Applicants page (also known as the 360 page) is used to orchestrate many applicant actions. From here, you can short list, download an applicant list into Microsoft Excel, schedule interviews, make offers, and prepare an applicant for hire.
The Manage Applicants page has two main sections:
- Row of hyperlinks under the job opening summary
- Applicant list
Row of hyperlinks
- Manage Applicants
- The Manage Applicants hyperlink appears on many of the Manage Applicants pages. No matter where you are, if you click this hyperlink, you return to the main Manage Applicants page (this page).
- Interview Schedule
- As you start to process your applicants, you may decide to schedule interviews. This is done via the “Take Action” field in the Manage Applicants section of the page. Click the Interview Schedule hyperlink to see which interviews have been scheduled.
- Job Opening Details
- Once a job opening is created, the Job Opening Details hyperlink provides the only access back to the job opening. You may need to do this to check approval status, make corrections for re-approval, add interview team members, etc.
- Add New Applicant
- If you receive paper applications, you can add them to your electronic applicant list by clicking the Add New Applicant hyperlink. If the applicant is an existing UBC employee, you will need the applicant’s employee ID number.
- Download Applicant List
- Click the Download Applicant List hyperlink to download an applicant list into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. The Excel report contains key information for all your applicants. Save the report and add your own information to it.
- A posting must be closed before you can process your applicants.
- You can process applicants as follows:
- Process a single applicant using the “Take Action” field available in the rightmost column for each applicant.
- Process several applicants simultaneously by clicking the check box in the leftmost column for each applicant, and then selecting the “Group Action” box at the bottom of the applicant list.
Note that both of these methods provide similar features. In addition, the “Take Action” pull-down list is numbered in the order that you would normally process an applicant. However, it may be appropriate to skip some steps. For example, you may read some resumes and decline an applicant without short listing them and setting them up for interviews.
- Each action takes you to a different page where you can perform the action selected. All actions, except #7-Prepare For Hire, bring you back to the main Manage Applicants page when you are done.
