Spontaneous Apply: Capture More Relevant Candidate Information

December 8, 2016

Capture relevant data about a candidate’s skills and experience with a new feature available to Applicant Tracking clients with Versions 4.0 or higher.

With Spontaneous Apply candidates can submit a general application to show interest in employment with the company. Spontaneous Apply is like joining a talent network, where candidates can express interest in a company even if they aren’t ready to apply to a specific job. With Spontaneous Apply, however, candidates upload a resume – as opposed to just their contact information – and are automatically opted into the company’s talent network (given all necessary fields are included in the application).

In other words, Spontaneous Apply helps employers capture the information to better determine the most relevant candidates in their network for new or open positions.

4 Main Benefits of Spontaneous Apply:

Easy user experience: Candidates have the option to fill out a Spontaneous Apply form from three places on your career site (powered by Talent Network):

  •  “Join Our Talent Network” button
  •  “Sign up for job alert emails” link on the job results page
  • “Not ready to apply” link under the apply button on the job description page

Relevant candidate data: This feature lets clients collect relevant data they need from a candidate who’s not yet ready to apply to a job on the career site. This feature helps clients collect resumes for passive candidates and learn more about a candidate’s skills and experience.

Easy setup: Spontaneous Apply is easily configured into the system by a CareerBuilder support specialist. Employers have the flexibility to define what fields need to be included in the general application.

No extra costs: There are no added costs to add the Spontaneous Apply feature to your Applicant Tracking solution. Simply ask your CareerBuilder representative to help you get started.
