Talent Pool in Zoho Recruit

Talent Pool in Zoho Recruit

As a recruiter, you may want to maintain a list of candidate profiles to refer back to in the future. With Zoho Recruit's Talent Pool, you can group similar candidate profiles by skills, experience, location, or other custom criteria.

For example: Say you source several candidates every day through job boards, social media, and more. They all have different skills, live in different locations, and have different work experiences. You can create categories for these candidates based on their similar attributes, list them under a specific talent pool, and refer to them later when a position opens up. If you need a marketer, you could search for a candidate that you have listed in your Marketing talent pool.

  1. Go to Setup > Hiring Pipeline > Talent Pool.
  2. Click 
  3. Enter the Talent Pool name. 
  4. Click Create.
