You can collect general information about candidates with an application form, like contact info, work and education history, and a resume or cover letter. But if you need to collect more detailed info from the beginning, your best bet is to add a questionnaire to the application.
Candidate Questionnaires are available to customers on all paid plans.
Important note: Some questionnaire features and response types aren’t compatible with the application process of certain job boards. To help ensure you’re getting as many applicants as possible:
Use only single-section questionnaires.
Avoid using video response questions.
Avoid using file upload questions.
If you want to use a questionnaire with multiple sections, video responses, or file uploads early in the recruitment process, consider sending it by email or with a stage action as soon as candidates reach your Applied stage.
