The “Sources” section can be used to monitor the effectiveness of candidate sources (e.g. job ad portals, employee referral programs, etc.). It shows not only the number of applications from a given source, but also the number of so-called quality applications. The following factors can indicate high quality of an application:

  • high rating of the candidate during the assessment carried out by the recruiter in the system;

  • an interview with the candidate (reaching the “Interview” stage in the system);

  • employment of the candidate (reaching the “Employment” stage in the system).

Monitoring the number of quality applications from different places of job ad publication can provide you with information on the effectiveness of such sources. If the company acquires many good candidates (e.g. such candidates, who are ultimately employed) from a given source, it indicates that this particular source is cost-effective. The information on which places of job ad publication are cost-effective enables you to administer your recruitment budget more efficiently and invest in sources that generate the largest number of valuable applications.

Important! Availability of specific reports depends on your system version. If you do not see a given report, contact your eRecruiter Consultant. In the “Sources” section, you can see the details of those recruitment projects you have the right to access in the system.

Important! The “Sources” section contains two charts that were previously displayed in the “Candidates” section, i.e. “Number of candidates per places of publication” and “Number of candidates per places of publication and statuses”.

All charts available in the “Sources” section can be filtered by the following criteria: company’s department, company, job offer type, city and custom single-choice field.

Let us go through individual charts presented in this section to learn more about their functionality.

Employed by place of publication

You can filter the data in this chart according to an individual recruitment project, position level, company’s department, city, company or custom single-choice field.

The chart shows the places of job ad publication that generate the largest number of employed candidates. It is a measure of the quality of places of publication. A place of publication can be considered valuable, when it generates quality (employed) candidates and enables you to close recruitment projects.

What kinds of data are displayed in the chart?

The chart shows the number of candidates whose recruitment stage was changed into “Employed” during the selected period (time frame). If such a stage change occurred, the candidate is counted in the chart and the source of her or his application is displayed. If the candidate applied more than once in the course of a given recruitment project, the first source from which she or he applied is displayed.

What kinds of data are not displayed in the chart?

If a candidate reaches the “Employed” stage during the selected period, but resigns from the recruitment process and her or his stage is changed (to any other than “Employed”), this candidate is not included in the chart. The chart presents the current number of employed candidates as at the last day of the selected time frame.

Moreover, the chart does not include any data regarding any source from which no candidate was employed (i.e. no candidate from this source had her or his stage changed into “Employed” during the selected period).

TIP: If job ads are published in more than 100 places of publication during the selected period, the chart shows only data for those 100 places of publication, from which the largest number of employed candidates were sourced. Data of the remaining places of publication will be available in an MS Excel file, which can be downloaded by clicking the downloading icon in the top right corner of the chart.

Places of publication by rating of candidates

You can filter the data in this chart according to an individual recruitment project, position level, company’s department, city, company or custom single-choice field.

The chart enables you to identify the places of publication that generate candidates highly rated by recruiters in the course of the recruitment process. Such highly rated candidates can be considered quality candidates, while their sources can be considered effective and economically viable. Importantly, the effectiveness of a place of publication (i.e. generating quality candidates) does not have to be correlated with a large number of incoming applications. A given place of publication can generate relatively few candidates, but those candidates can be very highly rated, so it is possible to close recruitment projects quicker, despite a small number of incoming job applications.

The chart presents the percentage distribution of all candidates who applied from a given place of publication and were rated in the system within the selected period.

Example: 1,000 candidates applied for a job from OLX, but only 100 were rated in the system; 60 candidates were rated 1, 10 candidates were rated 2, 10 were rated 3, 10 were rated 4 and 10 were rated 5. The chart will show the percentage distribution of only those 100 rated candidates (60%, 10%, 10%, 10%, 10% respectively).

TIP: The rating of a given candidate may change in the course of the recruitment process. The chart shows the rating as at the last day of the selected period.

TIP: If no candidate applying from a given place of publication is rated during the selected period, this place of publication is not visible in the chart. Therefore, the chart is empty, if no candidate was rated during the selected period.

TIP: If job ads are published in more than 100 places of publication during the selected period, the chart shows only data for those 100 places of publication, from which the largest number of rated candidates were sourced. Data of the remaining places of publication will be available in an MS Excel file, which can be downloaded by clicking the downloading icon in the top right corner of the chart.

Number of candidates per places of publication

You can filter the data in this chart according to an individual recruitment project, company’s department, city, company or custom single-choice field.

This chart shows the distribution of the number of sourced candidates (applications) from individual places of publication for different recruitment projects, as well as the aggregate data for all recruitment projects of the company during the selected period. This way, you can identify the sources of the largest and smallest number of job applications.

The chart includes the applications submitted during the selected period. A place of publication is visible, if at least one candidate applied for a job from this place of publication during the selected period. The recruitment projects are arranged alphabetically.

TIP: If a candidate applied more than once in the course of a given recruitment project from multiple places of publication, the first source from which she or he applied is displayed.

TIP: The chart shows up to 100 places of publication and 100 recruitment projects for the selected period. Data of the remaining places of publication and recruitment projects will be available in an MS Excel file, which can be downloaded by clicking the downloading icon in the top right corner of the chart.

Number of candidates per places of publication and statuses

You can filter the data in this chart according to an individual recruitment project, company’s department, city, company or custom single-choice field.

The chart shows the number of candidates (applications) from a given place of publication (for all recruitment projects) who were assigned a stage during the selected period. The stage change must occur during the selected period to be included in the chart. The chart does not show the number of candidates that are currently at the selected stage.

Example: A candidate named Jan Kowalski applied for a job from Pracuj.pl on June 1. His recruitment process stage was changed into “Interview” on June 12. If we select the reporting period of June 10-14, this candidate will be counted under the “Interview” stage for Pracuj.pl as the place of publication. If we select the reporting period of June 13-14, Jan Kowalski will not be counted under the “Interview” stage for Pracuj.pl as the place of publication.

In the chart, places of publication are arranged according to the number of candidates at all stages in aggregate: from the place of publication with the largest number of candidates to the place of publication with the smallest number of candidates. If no candidate applied from a given place of publication during the selected period, this place of publication is not visible in the chart.

The columns show all (system and custom) stages defined by the company in the Settings. The chart shows the current version of the stages and their names. If any stage used in the past is deleted, it will be displayed in the chart as a “Deleted stage”, including the number of candidates who were at this stage.

TIP: The chart counts only the first instances of stage changes. For instance, if a candidate attended 3 job interviews, she or he will be counted once (and displayed in the “Interview” column).

TIP: The chart shows up to 100 places of publication for the selected period. Data of the remaining places of publication will be available in an MS Excel file, which can be downloaded by clicking the downloading icon in the top right corner of the chart.
