Where to find a candidate's stage in Zoho Recruit?

Filter/Search candidates by stages

You can filter and look for candidates who are in particular stages of your hiring process. Say you wish to get a list of all the candidates who are hired. Go to the Candidates module, select the stage from the left side, and click Apply Filter. 

What are the different candidate stages?

New: This stage is applied to every candidate created in Zoho Recruit. A candidate remains in this stage until you associate them with a job, or get in touch with them via email or SMS. 

In Review: When you establish connection with a candidate via email, SMS, or an assessment--without a job opening association--they will be In Review.

Engaged: When a candidate is associated with a job.

Available: When a job opening is filled, other candidates who are neither Hired nor Rejected will move to this stage. You can later associate them with any other job. Click here to know more.

Hired: When you move an application to one of the Hired statuses in the Hiring Pipeline, the candidate will move to Hired. Click here to know more. 

Offered: When you move an application to one of the Offered statuses in the Hiring Pipeline, candidate will move to Offered.
