For each of your job post, you can add custom questions outside the Common and Skills Self-Assessment Questions. These can be as detailed or open ended as you like and they come in four types:
- Form Field - This gives the applicant one line to answer your question.
- Yes / No - This gives the applicant the choice of answering either “Yes” or “No” to your question
- Check Boxes - This gives a range of options for your candidate to answer. They can answer either none, just one or all of them.
- Paragraph - This gives the applicant a full paragraph of text to answer your question.
Applicant Questions must be first created in the Admin> Template & Forms > Applicant Questions section.
Once created, they can be used for any job. When creating or editing a job posting, scroll to the bottom to Common Questions and click Custom Questions. If you are adding custom questions to a job post, select the Questionnaire's name from the drop down window. Multiple Questionnaires can be added to a job post.
Once an applicant has filled out the Questionnaire, the answers can be viewed in the Talent > Dashboard > Applicant Questionnaire section
Note - Applicant question can be used during the initial applicant screening process OR be sent individually once an applicant has applied. To learn more about the sending questions after an applicant has applied, please see our help topic here.
