We’ve recently released several new features in HiringThing – Resume Import, Form Builder and the “Hired” button . We’re very proud of the work and thought that’s gone into these features and we’re excited to have so many great customers to share them with. Software should ultimately make things easier for its users. And that was our singular goal for these new features – to make the process of hiring as painless and straightforward as possible our customers.
With our new Form Builder feature, building a job application form is no longer just about collecting the information from candidates, it’s a way to customize your form and automate which applicants get your hiring team’s time and focus . This means, for example, if the open position requires that a candidate is fluent in Spanish you can ask applicants the following question:
And if “No” is selected, the applicant will be automatically archived in your database. You won’t need to spend time reviewing a candidate who doesn’t meet a core requirement of the position. Form Builder is available for all HiringThing accounts that have a Standard Plan or above. We’re excited to hear your feedback on this time-saving new feature.
Even before HiringThing officially launched, we heard from our initial beta test users that they really wanted a way to upload all the resumes they had that live somewhere else – in email accounts, in ATS products they no longer use, stored on a company network – basically anyone who’s applied for a job that didn’t come through their HiringThing account.
Now, clients with Pro or Enterprise plans can easily drag and drop individual resumes into their HiringThing account. Our system will automatically detect contact information and add new applicants.
We also offer a free data import service to all paying customers – upload resumes, cover letters, or both! Just format your files using the data import guidelines found here and send along to firstname.lastname@example.org.
By importing all your candidate resumes into your HiringThing account, you can easily manage and search for applicants all from one central location and keep your inbox clutter free.
The “Hired” Button
And with our new “Mark As Hired” button in the Applicant Viewer screen, you can now keep track of which candidates you’ve hired in your HiringThing account. These applicants will show up in the Hired Applicants list – which you can view and download by clicking on the Your Account button in the upper right corner of your screen.
It’s been a fun summer at HiringThing, working on these great new features and we’ve got much more to come in the fall!
