Candidate management is much easier when you have the right tools in place.

What is candidate management?

Candidate management is all about building and maintaining a healthy relationship with prospective employees. It plays an essential role in attracting and nurturing candidates throughout the hiring journey.
If you want to hire top talent, you need to provide the best possible candidate experience. From the job application process to regular communication and feedback, organised interview scheduling and a smooth onboarding experience—it’s the small details that make all the difference.


What is a candidate management system?

A candidate management system, often referred to as an applicant tracking system, is a tool used to assist the recruitment process. Candidate management systems assist with sourcing, communicating with and managing prospective employees throughout the hiring lifecycle. Plus, they provide data to help you make better hiring decisions.


Who are candidate management systems for?

If your current hiring process is spread across emails, documents, spreadsheets and physical CVs, you need a candidate management system.

Candidate management systems, like GoHire, are there to make hiring easier—no matter who’s doing the hiring. Whether you’re a hiring manager, HR professional, recruiter, founder or CEO, if you’re involved in the hiring process, you can benefit from using a candidate management system.


Why is candidate management important?

You want to make good hiring decisions, right? Well, the best hiring decisions are made when you have all the information you need in one place.

If you’re jumping between emails looking for past communication, physically sorting through piles of CVs and trying to remember how a candidate presented themselves in an interview—you’re not set up for making good decisions.

A candidate management system stores everything you need in one convenient place. Applications, CVs, screening questionnaires, interview dates, candidate communication and hiring manager notes are all accessible with the click of a button. You can quickly sort through candidates, move them along the pipeline or keep their details for a possible future position.


What are the features to look for in a candidate management system?

Here are the top features to look for in a candidate management system:

P.S. GoHire has all of these.


Detailed candidate profiles

Easily capture all relevant information regarding a candidate—every detail counts. Each candidate profile includes their application and CV and everything you’ve added since: notes, ratings, interview dates and all communication. Basically, everything you need to know about a candidate, in one place.


Candidate management pool

Candidate management pools allow you to keep track of all applicants—past and present. This means you can easily search through a pool of talent you’ve already vetted whenever a new job opening comes up. Saving you time, energy and resources.

Screening questionnaires

Looking for more information about candidates before pushing them through the hiring pipeline? Get further details and information from your candidates with Questionnaires. Create multiple questionnaire templates with various question types to get the most out of your candidate screening.



Sourcing talent, scheduling interviews and evaluating candidates all take time. Automate your messaging, create bulk responses, allow for interview self-scheduling and use our pipeline templates.


Combined inbox

At some point, you'll need to hand over the recruitment in your business to someone else. A combined inbox makes this easy. Since all communication is kept in one place, anyone in your team can easily access and pick up on communicating with an applicant by heading straight to their profile. There’s no skipping a beat.



Add personal notes on applicant profiles to help improve the recruitment process—from reasons why an applicant was/wasn’t successful to any notes about how the interview went or additional information about them.


One-click job posting

To boost efficiency even more, you want a candidate management system that incorporates job ad posting. It makes the whole process so much quicker, easier and more organised. You can then associate all applications, communication and scheduling with the job that it’s for.

With GoHire, you can post your clients’ job ads to over 15 job boards, including Indeed, Glassdoor, ZipRecruiter and many more! Plus, you can integrate social profiles—either your own or your clients—to automatically broadcast any new job openings.


Self-scheduling interviews

No more back-and-forth emails looking for convenient interview times. Automatically send interview requests to successful candidates at the click of a button, allowing them to self-schedule interviews that are synced with your calendar and theirs.

That’s just the start. Learn about all of GoHire’s features.
