Focus on Qualified Applicants

Job-Specific Screening Questions
We specialize in powerful, yet easy-to-use screening tools. Our customizable “COREquisites” questionnaire quickly determines whether applicants meet basic requirements for a specific job, which helps higher education HR and search committees use their time more efficiently.

COREquisites Question Library
Use our 50+ Question Library to start building your questionnaire, modify and weight questions as needed, and save them for later reuse.

Dynamic Screening
As your list of applicants grows, you can quickly find those who have specialized skills. Our tools help you focus your resources to create a shortlist of the most qualified applicants.

Rule-Based Ranking
Applicants are sorted based on their COREquisites scores – not simply on keyword matching. You can assign weights to each skill, and, if needed, change them later to suit your requirements.

Searchable Applicant Database
Find resumes in the Interview Exchange Applicant Tracking System database in seconds using keywords. With the “Invite” tool, you can send current jobs to candidates who applied in the past, enhancing employer branding through a proactive approach.


Labor-Saving Tools to Manage the Hiring Process

Document Storage and Management
The system supports applicant resumes in multiple formats including Word (.doc, .docx), PDF and plain text. All resumes are available to your HR and search committee in one convenient location. The system ensures that you get the most value from your job-posting investment.

Collaboration and Messaging Tools
Interact and collaborate online using our suite of tools. Your entire team can easily add notes and comments, and make decisions on moving applicants through the hiring process. Members can work at their convenience while the system maintains an audit trail.

Configurable Alerts
Use our email notification system to receive alerts when qualified applicants apply online. You can configure notifications to be instant, daily, or weekly.

Job Postings Made Easy
Use our handy “Clone” feature to post repeat jobs with the description and screening questions already filled in. Save time and effort, and ensure compliance.

Quick Reports
Easily generate reports summarizing all applicant information in an Excel file and send to all assigned users.


Good Data, Better Decisions

Source Performance
Our source performance metrics show how many times your job advertisement has been viewed, total number of applicants, and the number of hires. Use the data to help decide where and how to allocate your recruiting budget.

Applicant Quality by Source
Interview Exchange Applicant Tracking System reports indicate how many qualified and unqualified applicants were received from each source, allowing you to more effectively target future postings.

Recruiting Process Overview
Our sourcing report provides higher education HR teams with a snapshot of the entire recruiting effort. View detailed reports on qualified vs. unqualified applicants, demographics, number of interviews, and total hired. Generate reports about cost per hire and time to hire with just a few clicks.
