How To Get The Information You Need From Native Apply Candidates

by | Sep 27, 2019

When hiring new employees it is important to gather the right information regarding candidates at the beginning of the process. With the right information, employers can easily narrow down their search and speed up the hiring process. Fortunately, there is a way for employers to leverage Native Apply tools and still get the information they need. 


Custom Questions Gather Important Candidate Information

When a candidate uses the Native Apply option to apply for a job, information is automatically sent to the employer directly from the platform.  Common Native apply tools are Indeed Apply and LinkedIn Apply. Many of these tools forward the candidate’s resume to a designated email address. On Facebook a profile is provided via Facebook Messenger.  For most employers this is simply not enough. There is a need to support multiple custom questions.


Examples of common custom questions on Native Apply applications include:

  • Equal Opportunity Questions
  • Veteran Status
  • Compliance Questions
  • Minimum Qualification Questions

Ideally, custom questions should be simple to answer and not overly time-consuming. By making custom questions easy to answer, employers maintain the benefits of Native Apply while still gathering the information they need.   The most qualified candidates are often the busiest. Therefore, they want to be able to apply for their next job on their mobile device and in as little time as possible. By choosing to use Native Apply, employers get the best of both worlds – a quick application option for qualified passive candidates on the go and the ability to ask important questions.


Sites Like Indeed and Facebook Do Not Support the Custom Questions My Company Needs

Job Aggregators- Friend or Foe?

Job Aggregators- Friend or Foe?

There are increasing stories, however, of job aggregators distorting the job posting, not digitally forwarding the candidate’s applications to the job board, or, when contracted directly with the recruiter, not forwarding the job application directly to the recruiter’s applicant tracking system.
