SENTIO is a great way to augment your current hiring process and technologies. “Candidate sourcing” platforms like Snag, Indeed and Career Plug are great solutions for finding people, but SENTIO is built specifically to make sure you hire the right ones. With QSR’s averaging an annual turnover of 132%, it has never been more important or difficult to determine which applicants have the mental makeup to stay with you long term.
Here are three ways to add SENTIO to your current sourcing platforms… and turn a mess of resumes into a great hire!
Download SENTIO Boost
SENTIO Boost is a Google Chrome Extension that connects your HR tools to SENTIO. Use Boost on any web-based ATS, job board, or social network to “grab” an applicant’s email address and instantly send them your SENTIO survey.
Boost is included in all paid SENTIO subscriptions and can be downloaded here.
Use Your SENTIO Assessment Link
Most of our customers post their assessment link inside job descriptions both in-store and online with language like “to be considered, please complete this survey”. The SENTIO survey also collects an applicant’s resume, email, and zip code so it’s a great way to capture a ton of data at first touch.
To generate your assessment link,
Go to your position dashboard.
Press the “Analyze Candidates” tab.
Press “Generate URL”
Copy and paste the URL into your job description.
Many applicant tracking and sourcing platforms allow you to email or text candidates when they apply to your job posting. The “default” message is typically “thank you for applying to xyz…” but you have the ability to edit the email.
You are able to edit the content of that email, so many SENTIO users include instructions to complete the assessment. Below is an example:
“We appreciate you applying to work here. In an effort to learn more about you as a candidate, please complete this brief survey: <survey link>. We will contact you when we have received the results.” Another great option is "You have been selected to move to the next stage in our hiring process! In an effort to learn more about you as a candidate, please complete this brief survey: <survey link>. We will contact you when we have received the results."
Most systems allow you to export your candidates to an excel spreadsheet. Once you are happy with your applicant pool, you can simply copy and paste the exported list into SENTIO. This will mass-email all of your applicants.
Go to your Indeed Page.
Export Candidates into a CSV File.
Go to “Analyze Candidates” in your SENTIO account.
Copy and paste the names/emails from the file.
Press “Send Email Invitations”.
