You can test the candidate experience by going to “Invite Candidates”. You have the option to access the shareable link to your job or invite yourself via email as a candidate.
Note: You can use the email address you signed up with to send yourself a test.
We recommend using an alias email to test the candidate experience. Most email providers allow the creation of alias emails. For example, firstname.lastname@example.org is the main email but if we use an alias such as email@example.com the system will recognize this as a new user and all correspondence will still arrive to the main inbox. You can create multiple alias emails- you just need to add the + sign and a word like in the example above.
You will receive an email as if you were a candidate. You will notice the email is fully branded with your company logo and colors.
If your first stage is set up with a Talent Trial you will have the option to click View Interview in the email. You will then be directed to create an account and complete a profile. The profile can be skipped and completed at a later time.
Questions in the Profile Section
**Please note that the profile includes the following questions:
-What is your phone number?
-Where do you live?
-What are your skills?
-Option to add social media links
-Option to upload a resume
-Option to include a quick bio video or written summary
-Upload a profile image
Turn off candidate profile section
To turn off the profile so that candidates don't have to complete it, go to your job's settings located in the top right of your dashboard.
The job settings window will open. Select the option "Don't ask candidates to complete the profile questions" and save.
*Please note that if you turn off the profile section after candidates have started applying, only new candidates who apply will not see the profile.
I am trying to test the candidate experience and I get a 404 error when I click "View Interview".
If you have previously tested the experience and are trying to test it again, you are probably still logged into a candidate account.
You must first log out of the previous candidate account you registered and tested.
Go to your candidate's login URL.
Replace "mycompany" with the company name you registered in your Vervoe account.
If you are logged into a candidate account you will see the account dashboard. Click on the profile icon on the top right corner of the account and click log out.
You will then be able to test as a new candidate and should not receive a 404 error.
** You can also just open your test invite email using a different browser or an incognito browser in Chrome or Firefox or clear your browser cache before trying to test the experience again.
