General Questions

I didn’t get enough applicants

If you didn’t get enough applicants and have a particularly difficult position to fill, there are a couple of options you can pursue.

1. Optimize your job posting

It’s always a great idea to think of your job posting like an ad, you’re trying to convince applicants that your company would be a great place to work and that they should send in their resume.

To help, we put together this article on How to Optimize a Job Posting.

Additionally, if you have some specific ads you’d like help with, please feel free to reach out either via email (support@proven.com) and we’ll be more than happy to help you!

2. Add premium boards for more reach

The base Proven option goes to over 100 different job boards. However, sometimes for difficult positions, you need even more reach. That’s why we offer premium job boards. Premium boards allow

Premium boards allow you to spend a bit more to get even more reach and applicants.

To add a premium board, simply log in to Proven. Click the re-post button next to your job title which will bring you to the edit job post screen.

3. Reach Out to Proven

Here at Proven, we want to help your hire more effectively and a big part of that is making sure you’re getting enough candidates. If you have any questions or need any help with your ad, please feel free to reach out via email (support@proven.com).

I applied to my own job but I don’t see it?

If you applied to your own position you may not see the application.

This is because as part of Proven’s service, we screen out all the junk or fraudulent applications to save you time in the hiring process.

If you apply and don’t put any text in the description, use a title like “test,” apply using the email associated with the account or generally submit an application that is not legitimate, it will be removed before you see it!

This doesn’t mean that your job is not live on the board or that it isn’t working. If you’d like, you can reach out to our support at support@proven.com for more explanation and confirmation that we did screen out the test application!

How long does my job stay open?

When you post a job it will stay active for 30 days with all of our job board partners.

If you need the posting to come down because you’ve already hired someone, you can log in to Proven, find the job and select close job from the buttons next to the job title!

Applicants are not showing up for their interviews!

There are several ways you can improve appearance rates for your interviews.

1. Message candidates quickly.

Often when candidates are looking for jobs they will apply to 5-10 jobs at one time. Many managers make the mistake of waiting for a week or more to message candidates or to set up an interview. As a result, candidates get snapped up by other companies and don’t come to your interviews.

2. Use the interview scheduling feature.

Proven’s integrated interview scheduling feature is a great way to reduce no-shows. Simply schedule the interview with the candidate and we will automatically remind both you and the candidate before the interview starts. This dramatically reduces no-shows.

The interview scheduling feature is located within each candidate profile as can be seen in the photo below.

3. Report the candidate to Proven.

If a candidate fails to show after the previous two suggestions. Please mark them as a no show using the scheduling feature. If they have a few no-shows we can black list them from the system and prevent them from applying using the Proven job board.
