Reviewing Applicants

by Shelby Burke

The Applications page is the first page you see when you log in to HigherMe. This is where you can view and manage all your applications in one place. When you get a new application, this is where it will appear.Screen_Shot_2022-06-15_at_10.36.52_AM.png You can filter and sort your applicants, view their applications, mark their status, search for applicants, and invite them for an interview.

Candidate Application

Selecting the Applicant's Name will allow you to view their full profile and application. 


From here, you can see information such as experience, education, skills like languages or certifications, and availability.

Just below the top section, there are three tabs on each application: Resume, Answers, and Notes. 


The Resume tab is made up of 4 sections: Experience, Education, Skills, and Availability. This is also where any attachments that the Applicant has included are kept (e.g. a resume)

The experience and education section is where you'll get a high-level look into their previous work history and any education they've taken part in. You'll get the pertinent details - the role/major, the company/school, the location & the dates they worked there or attended.

Skills are going to highlight any additional languages the applicant speaks and their fluency, any certifications or licenses they hold, and will also provide a high level summary of their skill set - whether it is in Retail, Admin, Hospitality, or other. 

Availability captures the applicant's available hours to work. Every blue block indicates a point in time where they are available to work. 


The Answers tab allows you to see how the applicant answered all of the pre-screening questions that are built into each role. This can help give you information to make an informative decision when inviting the applicant in for an interview.

Every purple answer is how the applicant answered the question. Text-based questions are not graded in the FitScore.



The notes tab shows your team’s interaction with this applicant and any feedback they’ve left on the profile. It also traces any status change made for this applicant. This is helpful when collaborating with your entire hiring team so everyone can see the changes.
