View Candidate Skills Match

Candidate Skills Match information displays on the Manage Candidates page in the Candidate Matching Score column.

This column displays the candidate skills match score by matching a candidate's profile against the requisition's job description.

Matching begins when a candidate submits an application with a resume attached in .doc, .docx, or .pdf format. Scoring is based on the candidate's resume /work experience matched against the job description. Scores appear in the Candidate Score column as follows:

  • 76 to 100 – Excellent
  • 51 to 75 – Good
  • 26 to 50 – Fair
  • 0 to 25 - Low

Note: If the resume is not attached to the application, the score is blank. For better scoring, it is recommended that parsing for previous work experiences is enabled. See Application Workflow - Upload Attachments.

You must enable Candidate Skills Match to use it.See Enable Candidate Skills Match.

To access the Manage Candidates page, go to Recruit > Manage Candidates.
