Keyword Detection is an easy way for the HiringThing engine to help find the gold in your application stack for you. Add a comma delimited list of keywords to your job posting. The HiringThing analysis engine will check the applications you receive for a match and display an alert for you on the application grid when it finds a match. For example, let’s say that you are hiring for a programmer position and one of your requirements is that all applicants have JavaScript and Ruby experience. Add both as keywords separated by commas JavaScript , Ruby to the Keyword field so HiringThing’s analysis engine can check all of your applicants’ resumes for these keywords.

  • Explain your approach to project management.

  • Please provide salary history for your last three positions.
