Candidate Sources allow you to see where your Candidates are coming from and how successful Candidates from different sources are in the recruitment process.
When you're making decisions about the most effective sources to allocate your advertising budget, time and energy, this is an invaluable source of information if you want to make sure that you're giving yourself the best chance of successfully filling a Job.
These sources are really easy to set up by your Vincere Super Users. Simply head to Settings > Admin Settings > Organizational Settings and hit Application / Candidate Sources
Next, you're presented with a table view of all of the Candidate Sources in your system.
It's really easy to edit and add new sources. Simply head over to the blue button 'Create a new source' and fill in the details:
Name: Name of the source e.g. The New York Times
Location: This refers to your office location using this source e.g. only the New York office would be using this source. Whereas a source like LinkedIn - would be used by all offices so we'd simply select 'All Locations' for this field.
Type: Job Board, Company Career Site or Job Aggregator
Start/End Date: Again, this refers to if you're running a specific campaign - e.g. if you're running a 3-month campaign in The New York Times you could enter this here.
For a source you're going to be using indefinitely such as Email or LinkedIn etc is just creating a start date as of now and an end date years into the future (e.g. 2028).
Show in Candidate Source list: Once this is enabled it will appear in the dropdown list so users can select as a source when adding Candidates
Show on Instant Job Board: Once this is enabled it will appear in the dropdown list on your job board/website so Candidates can select it when applying for jobs.
Once you're happy hit Save and you're good to go!
