Use Review Job Seeker and other Tools for Hiring Approval

Once a candidate has been selected as a potential hire, BALANCEtrak supports and helps automate the next steps in the process. These tools are available by navigating to the Job Seekers tab and accessing a Job Seeker record ( Review Job Seeker detail).

Submit a Job Seeker for Background Check (Where installed)

First, the information necessary for the background screening must be collected from the Job Seeker.

Then, in the Review Job Seeker detail, scroll down to: Jobs Applied To. Click [Expand] for a specific Requisition Number. Under Background Check, click on [Submit]. Follow the provided prompts to initiate background screening through the third-party provider.

Cross-references: For information on using a Background Check form, see:

Initiate (or Participate in) the Hiring Approval Process

For actions involving hiring approval, there are two user audiences:

  • Submitter — The recruiter or HR professional who coordinates aspects of applicant workflow, such as screening, interviews, and the selection of candidates for hire
  • Approver — The hiring manager with decision-making authority

Submit a Job Seeker for Hiring Approval

On the Review Job Seeker detail, scroll down to Jobs Applied To. Click [Expand] for a specific Requisition Number to show the Hiring Approval Process menu.

Click the [Submit for Approval] button. Most users will only be permitted to select one of the Existing processes from the provided drop-down. However, please review the process to ensure it contains the proper approvers and steps, or select another one.

Click [Save] to initiate the process. An email will be sent to Selected Approvers, and the Approval Process menu will appear when the approver enters the Review Job Seeker detail from the Job Seekers list.

If the Approval Process menu is not sufficient, contact your BALANCEtrak Administrator. If you are an Administrator, you may add a new process at this time, as outlined next.

Cancel the Hiring Approval Process for a Job Seeker

A [Cancel] button in the Approval Process menu is made available for the submitter, who can discontinue an ongoing process. When the confirmation message appears, click [OK].

Create the Approval Process (Administratiors only)

After [Submit for Approval] is clicked, select the radio button for: New. Below the page header, users who have the following system permission will display as Available Approvers, in the left-hand column:

  • Allowed to approve Job Seekers for hire
  • Have user access for the [Business unit] code and the current Requisition

Drag and drop one or more users from Available Approvers (on the left) to Selected Approvers, the column on the right side. Reorder multiple Selected Approvers by dragging and dropping them above or below each other; each Selected Approver will receive an approval request once the preceding approver has replied with: Approve.

To reuse this Approval Process, click the checkbox: Save this process for later use. Then, provide a: Process Name.

Quick Tip: If the Approval Process is specific to hiring, enter a name that reflects its particular use.

Clicking [Save] will initiate the process, in the same manner as using an Existing one.

Cross-references: Administrators may refer to the following information:

  • Make an Existing Approval Process Active/Inactive
  • Create an Approval Process in Advance

Approve a Submitted Job Seeker for Hire

If Job Seeker has been submitted for hiring approval and you are a Selected Approver, notifications will be sent, automatically. In addition, an Approval Process menu will be available on the Review Job Seeker detail. Navigate to: Jobs Applied to, and [Expand] the Requisition record.

An approver may also access the Approval Process menu, from:

  • The email notification
  • A message banner on the Home page Dashboard

  • Requisitions > Review Requisition detail / Job Seekers table / Job Seeker record

  • I want to approve this job seeker without logging in.
  • I want to not approve this job seeker without logging in.

  • [View Process] — A list of designated approvers
