Review Applicants in AppTrack


In the APPLICANT TRACKING MODULE, the Postings menu provides access to postings by position type. Locate and open the posting to the Applicants tab to see applications, résumés, cover letters, answers to supplemental questions and other assessment factors, and references.

At the appropriate point in your organization's process, you can review qualified applicants and select those you want to interview. Your organization's standard practices determine which of these operations you can do.


In place of applicant, your organization may use the term candidate.

In place of posting, your organization may use a term such as announcementrequisitionworkforce request, or open position.

In place of special handling list, your organization may use a term such as restricted list or FYI.
