Intro to the candidate profile

Search for candidates

Select the Candidates tab to find candidates that you have permission to view. Select Yours to see just candidates you are on the hiring team for, or select All to see all candidates, including candidates you are scheduled to interview or have been @mentioned about. 

You can filter your view by status, job, hiring stage, keywords, or by adding additional filters. You can also sort the list by selecting the headers to make it easier to find what you're looking for.

The candidate profile

Select a candidate's name to view their profile. A banner will appear if the candidate is involved in another hiring process with your company. You can edit the candidate's jobhiring stage, or status from this page. You can also view the hiring team members, or add the candidate to a collection.


Click into the Background tab to view more information about a candidate's background and experience. Work experience and education will be automatically parsed from the candidate's resume. Edit these details by selecting Edit next to the item you would like to edit. Users can also find the candidate's contact information here. 



Browse Google Search results for the candidate without having to leave Hire. Hire Admins can choose to hide a site or add a custom site to the search. Users can edit the search by clicking the link next to "Showing results for" at the top of the search box. This will open a Google Search window where users can edit the query.  If you have edit permissions, you can select "Save URL" to save a URL to the right hand panel of the candidate's profile.


View the candidate's recent Activity including emails and interview feedback, add and respond to Comments from the hiring team, and view the interview Schedule, all from the candidate's profile page.


Select the Feedback tab leave interview feedback or to see what the rest of your team is saying. Keep things like resumes and cover letters in the Documents tab so the hiring team always has access.
