Adding Interview and Reference Notes

You are here

Search documentation is an important part of compliance. All notes, including interview and reference notes, can be subpoenaed and presented in a legal proceeding. Notes should be clear and concise. Visit this link to learn more about best practices for adding notes.

Notes can be attached to jobs or to applicants.  

Notes that relate to a position, or all candidates applying to a position, should be attached to the job (e.g. “All finalists will need to provide links to graphic design portfolios”). 

Notes that are specific to a candidate should be attached to an applicant (e.g. notes from an interview or from a reference).
