New Feature: Deal-Breaker Questions

Tired of weeding through candidates that don’t meet your basic requirements? We just added a handy new checkbox to multiple-choice questions in online interviews that will make your life easier!

They’re called “Deal-Breaker Questions” and now any multiple-choice question can be indicated as a deal-breaker by checking the box.  Once a candidate answers this question incorrectly, they will be automatically hidden in your candidates list, and will not be emailed to you.

Deal Breaker Questions

Of course, you can always see them by filtering by “Hidden Candidates,” but your time has been saved reading through an unqualified applicant.  Please note that the checkbox is not retroactive, and will only hide new candidates received once it is checked.

New Feature: Hiring Companies

After listening to feedback from our customers, we have just added the ability to create multiple Hiring Companies within each ZipRecruiter account. A Hiring Company represents an individual employer and can have a unique name, description, website, logo, header color and job page URL. This is a powerful feature that gives recruiters and staffing agencies the ability to post jobs for multiple clients from the same ZipRecruiter account.  For our customers who do not need multiple Hiring Companies, nothing has changed – all jobs will retain the account’s company name as the Hiring Company until a new one is created.
