Once you have applicant pooling enabled, you can access your applicant pool within any position by clicking on the More Candidates tab.
After selecting More Candidates, there is a Search Resume drop-down menu on the left side of the screen with two options, select Applicant Pool.
Resume Library. Resume Library is a third party database that provides you with a huge pool of fresh resumes from across all sectors and states. If you’re interested in learning more, check our Resume Library article.
Applicant Pool. Select the Applicant Pool option in the dropdown to see applicants in your pool across your jobs. This feature allows you to filter applicants in your pool who may be qualified for the position.
There are 3 additional filters for you to select from to help narrow down your search of applicants:
Keywords are defined at the job posting level and are a useful way of scanning an applicant's resume and cover letter for the key skills and experience you are interested in. You’ll be able to filter applicants by the Keywords you have set for another position that may relate to your current position. Our Keywords and Tags article goes into more in-depth about them.
Search Within & Postal Code are used together to search for applicants within the listed distance of postal code. The zip code will default to the zip code associated with the job when first created. Example: Searching within 50 miles of 45103 will pull up all applicants in the account within 50 miles of that postal code.
Applied within is the length of time an applicant has applied. For example, if you set the time frame up to 90 days, it will pull all applicants who’ve applied within the last 90 days.
When searching, you should take all filters into consideration to help narrow down your search. Once you’ve set up the filters you’re looking to use, click on Search Resumes.

Keep in mind, this is a passive applicant who did not directly apply for this position. You can use our email template for establishing the first contact. When talking with a Passive Candidate for the first time, you should explain the job you are considering them for, extend the opportunity for a discovery call to learn about each other, and give them the opportunity to decline being considered.
Once the applicant has been added to the job, they’ll be available for view under the New Applicants tab with an Applicant-Pool tag added to their applicant profile. Please note, adding an applicant to a position does not remove them from their other position they applied for.
