Now, let’s begin by filling in your job information!
We have some tips on how to create an attractive job title:
a) Keep the title simple: Focus on simplicity and accuracy
b) Make it relatable: Use terms that can be related to the job
c) Speak to outsiders, not insiders: Some companies use terms that are too specific to their organization. When creating your position, put yourself in the candidate's shoes and use terms that they can understand.
Avoid adding hyphens or other characters: This can affect indexing on job portals.
2. Hiring Workflow
In this field, you will select which hiring workflow you want to use for the position. The flow must be previously created in your settings.
3. Nickname (for internal use)
Add a nickname to your job so you can identify it quickly on your job postings page within Plooral. This nickname will not be presented to the public.
The hiring team participating in this specific selection process will be able to see this nickname (so be careful!).
We’re here to make your life easier:
These nicknames will appear on your internal open jobs page.
→ HR Consultants: You can use this field to organize your clients' positions.
→ Companies: You can use this field to categorize your different teams or specific positions.
When you enter a nickname, the job posting date will be replaced by the nickname in your internal job page view.

Creating an attractive job description increases candidate engagement and conversions!

19. Professional experience requirement
In this field, you can enter the desired number of years of experience the candidate needs to apply. Applicants will be notified when their level of experience doesn’t match what is requested and they will be blocked from applying.

2. Frequently Asked Questions
Align job expectations and be transparent with candidates about your company or what you’re looking for with custom FAQs!
To gain efficiency when creating a position, create your FAQs template beforehand.
To do this, go to SETTINGS > Frequent Questions (Templates).
Use custom questionnaires to get to know your candidates better!
Plooral, gives you two types of questionnaire options: With AutoCorrection and Without AutoCorrection.
We recommend using Without AutoCorrection questionnaires for open-ended questions, or questions which response requires: files, images, links etc. With this option you can set a time limit.
We recommend using With AutoCorrection questionnaires for technical tests, or for right and wrong answer types. With this option you can also set a time limit and passing score number. By setting a passing score and time limit, Plooral will automatically differentiate candidates who passed the test under your criteria, in your position’s KanBan board view.
