Resume Section

If the candidate uploaded a resume, the resume appears in the Resume section below the Overview section. You can download a PDF of the resume, as well.

For candidates who filled out their resume when completing their application, their resume details appear in this section. When a resume has been parsed, you will be able to view both the resume file and parsed resume details.

When an applicant applies with their LinkedIn resume, this will replace a resume file. An applicant can have both a LinkedIn and parsed resume.

The applicant carousel shows the resume and/or any parsed parsed resume fields that are available for the candidate. The structured resume fields used for Succession > Resume are a subset of the Universal Profile fields.

For internal employees, when they apply to a requisition and choose to use their existing resume on the application, then the structured resume fields from their Universal Profile will populate the application workflow. The internal user could choose to update these values in the resume step on the application and this would also update their Universal Profile. While the full Universal Profile does not appear on the applicant carousel, what is shown are the fields from the employee's Universal Profile that were used to apply to the requisition.

Prescreening Questions Section

Any pre-screening questions that were included in the application appear in the Pre-Screening Questions section. Both the question and the candidate's answer appear.

This section displays if a candidate is in a status for live video or on-demand video interviews.
