Recruiting and hiring employees is a complex process, and involves a lot of people and moving parts. There's applicants, resumes, portfolios, and follow up tasks that can number in the hundreds or even thousands.
Highrise can help you manage the process from beginning to end.
Identify the people who will be most involved in the hiring process, and create a group in Highrise for those people.
This is also a great way to keep information that could be sensitive available to only the people who should have access.
A Case gives you one central location to organize all information around hiring. You could set up a Case for general hiring, or a Case per open position you're trying to fill.
Every Case comes with a dropbox address. This is a special email address used to file emails to a Case.
Every Group also comes with a dropbox address, which will set permissions on incoming emails to the associated group.
You can use these two rules in combination with the
+fw rule to forward emails directly to your case and group.
Any incoming email and associated attachments will be sent to the Case and to Good Morning, your group inbox, where members of your Group can review them. Highrise will also create a new contact for them (as applicable), and include their information there as well.
For example, our own team has
firstname.lastname@example.org autoforwarding to our hiring Case, and we ask any job applicant to apply there. We also have a hiring Group to process and filter the applications so we set up our autoforwarding using both the hiring Case and Group with the +fw rule.
As applicants come in and are reviewed, you can remove them from Good Morning and tag them in any way you'd like to identify them.
You could do a straightforward
no, or you could go a little deeper, for example,
offer pending, etc.
