The Candidates page in the Hiring application lists all the available candidates in the system. You can use the search feature in the page to find required candidates.
You can search using any, all, or a combination of these fields:
- Candidate name
Use the Candidate Search box in the page to quickly find candidates matching your search term exactly.
For example, to search for candidates named John, enter John in the Candidate Search box. The system suggests possible matches as you type. This search retrieves all candidates with John in the last name or first name.
Note: Results are listed in the order of last name (last name=John), first name (=John).
Advanced search allows you to search for one or more parameters of a candidate such as name, job, date applied, or location, by using the filters, as shown below. You can use one, all, or any combination of the following fields.
Candidate Name: Enter the full name of the candidate to search for a specific candidate. For example, John Smith.
Select Partial match if you’re not sure of the name or spelling.
For example, if you enter Jon and select Partial match, the search retrieves candidates named Jon, Jonathan, Jonty and so on.
Note that the partial match works only for the initial letters in a name. It doesn’t retrieve results if the letters are in the middle or at the end of a name. For example, partial match doesn’t retrieve Dujon in the above case.
Email address: Provide the complete email address of the candidate to search for. For example, email@example.com.
Note that the search doesn’t retrieve partial matches. If you enter just john in the email address, no results are displayed.
- Has the words: Use this box to search for candidates based on their resume that includes their educational qualification, work experience, and so on.

Doesn’t have: Use this box to eliminate certain terms when searching from a candidate’s resume.
To search for candidates who are Chefs, but not from Burger King, enter: Chef,Burger King.
City, State: Enter the city or state if known. The system suggests possible matches as you type the city name.
Radius: Select a radius from the drop-down list. For example, if you’re looking for candidates close to your work location, then select an appropriate radius, say, 20 miles.
Date From/Date To: Select a date range. This is used to find candidates who have applied for the job during the selected period.
Tags: If you’ve assigned any tags to candidates during hiring, you can use those for your search. When you click this box, available tags are displayed. Select a tag as required.
