So you’ve successfully published your job ad to all the best free job posting sites. First off, congrats! 🥂

You’ve made the first major step towards finding your next perfect-fit hire. But of course, the journey doesn’t end there. 

If you’re one of the many hiring managers, recruiters, or HR professionals laser-focused on providing a seamless candidate experience, here are three essential next steps to take after posting your job ad: 

  1. Set up a Pipeline Stages system so you can visually manage candidates across all stages of the hiring funnel. 
  2. Stage and schedule automated emails to be sent to candidates as they progress from one stage to the next. (This tip will win you tons of favor with candidates! 😍)
  3. Draft your interview questions. Then, lay out an interview scorecard to help reduce bias and keep all interviewers on the same page.
