ONLINE CANDIDATE SELECTION TOOL

The following statement is a full description of this invention including the best method of performing it known to me:

ONLINE CANDIDATE SELECTION TOOL

TECHNICAL FIELD

[0001] The present invention generally relates to an online candidate selection tool.

BACKGROUND

[0002] The reference to any prior art in this specification is not, and should not be taken as an acknowledgement or any form of suggestion that the prior art forms part of the common general knowledge.

[0003] Matching candidates to jobs is difficult, with several variables involved. Recruiters can be engaged to assist in the matching process, but are invariably expensive and can take significant time to fill a position. Advertising is also time consuming with long lead times.

[0004] The preferred embodiment provides a useful tool in suggesting candidates for a job, without then need for a recruiter or advertising.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0005] According to one aspect of the present invention, there is provided an online candidate selection method involving: prompting for one or more hirer details provided by a hirer; receiving one or more responses to the prompting; and suggesting one or more candidates for a job using the responses.

[0006] Advantageously, the hirer details may include the hirer’s company which, in turn, results in suggestion of candidates for the job at that company.

[0007] The hirer details may further include a job title of the job and/or a location for the job. In one embodiment, the location is automatically populated based upon the location of the hirer.

[0008] The suggesting may involve comparing the responses with candidate profiles. Each candidate profile may be constructed from a resume or other source, and can include previous job titles. The method may involve filtering the suggested candidates using additional criteria. The method may involve the candidate modifying their profile or filters and skill criteria.

[0009] The method may further involve rating skills of the candidates. The step of suggesting may further involve using the rating. The rating may be verified and/or rated.

[00010] The method may further include displaying the suggested candidates in order or priority. The priority may be determined using: points awarded for holding required accreditations: points awarded for months experience in skill 1 and skill2; less points awarded for months experience in skill 1 and skill2; and/or considerably less points awarded for months experience in skill 1 and skill2, preferably in that order.

[00011] According to another aspect of the present invention, there is provided an online candidate selection tool including: a prompter for prompting for one or more hirer details provided by a hirer; a receiver for receiving one or more responses to the prompting; and suggestion means for suggesting one or more candidates for a job using the responses.

[00012] Any of the features described herein can be combined in any combination with any one or more of the other features described herein within the scope of the invention.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

[00013] Preferred features, embodiments and variations of the invention may be discerned from the following Detailed Description which provides sufficient information for those skilled in the art to perform the invention. The Detailed Description is not to be regarded as limiting the scope of the preceding Summary of the Invention in anyway. The Detailed Description will make reference to a number of drawings as follows: [00014] Figure 1 is a schematic diagram of an online job candidate selection website in accordance with an embodiment of the present invention; [00015] Figure 2 is a schematic diagram of a display of suggested candidates generated using the website of Figure 1; [00016] Figure 3 shows a full profile of a suggested candidate; [00017] Figure 4 shows a population tool of the website of Figure 1; [00018] Figure 5 shows a ranking tool of the website of Figure 1; [00019] Figure 6 shows an eagerness assessment tool of the website of Figure 1; and [00020] Figure 7 shows a qualification tool of the website of Figure 1.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

[00021] According to an embodiment of the present invention, there is provided an online job candidate selection website 100 (i.e. tool) as shown in Figure 1 for use by a hirer wanting to hire a candidate for a job. The website 100 includes a bar prompter 102 for prompting for hirer details provided by the hirer. Advantageously, the hirer details include the hirer’s company 104 which, in turn, results in suggestion of candidates for the job at that company. The hirer details further include a job title 106 of the job and a location 108 for the job.

[00022] The website 100 also includes a selection box receiver 110 with respective boxes 112-116 for receiving selected hirer detail responses to the prompting. Once the hirer selects the company 104, job title 106 and location 108 in the respective receiver boxes 112-116, the search button 118 can be actuated to generate the suggested candidates display 200 in Figure 2.

[00023] Turning to Figure 2, the display 200 (i.e. suggestion means) includes a vertical list suggesting one or more candidates 202 for the job using the responses. The list is generated by comparing the selected hirer responses 104-108 with candidate profiles stored in a database. Each candidate profile is constructed from a resume, and can include previous job titles.

[00024] The display 200 displays the suggested candidates 202 in order or priority. The priority is determined using: points awarded for holding required accreditations; points awarded for months experience in skill 1 and skill2; less points awarded for months experience in skill 1 and skill2; and/or considerably less points awarded for months experience in skill 1 and skill2, in that order of importance.

[00025] The display 200 also includes the list of skills 204 used to match the candidates 202 to the job. The priority of the skills 204 can be re-ordered and the skills 204 can be added and removed by the hirer to filter the candidates displayed.

[00026] The display 200 also includes an input accreditation 206 where any required accreditation for the job can be entered by the hirer. The display 200 also includes a location box 208 where location details can be edited. The display 200 also includes a date limiter 210 to limit the date range of last candidate activity. These inputs result in further filtration of the suggested candidates 202.

[00027] Each suggested candidate 202 shows the skills 212 that match the searched job, and qualifications 214 held by candidate matching the job.

[00028] Turning to Figure 3, a full profile 300 of a suggested candidate 202 can be displayed upon selection of the candidate 202 by the hirer. The profile 300 may include details such as licence expiry, copies/scans, past feedback, banking, OH&S details, skills, etc.

[00029] The candidate profiles 300 are populated and stored in a database using a population tool 400 as shown in Figure 4. Skills required to do a particular task are stored against each client profile 300. These skills are populated to each profile 300 in various ways including candidates register or interact with the website, resumes can be parsed, and candidates can continue to modify their profile 300 by selecting additional skills not parsed from the resume and prompted based upon a previously selected or parsed skill.

[00030] The method may further involve rating skills of the candidate 202 using a ranking tool 500 as shown in Figure 5. The candidate is prompted to enter the frequency percentage of some skills used while working for the selected past employer. The website 100 calculates the length of experience in months, based on the selection combined with start and end dates of a prior role. The rating is used in suggesting the candidates 202 to the hirer. Figure 6 shows an eagerness assessment tool 600 in which candidates 202 can enter their eagerness to use their skills which is used in suggesting candidates 202.

[00031] Figure 7 shows a qualification tool 700 in which qualifications and accreditations are entered by the candidate 202 against each previous company. Additionally, candidates 202 are prompted for possible qualifications based on the percentile of qualification held or required for a known skill set.

[00032] A person skilled in the art will appreciate that many embodiments and variations can be made without departing from the ambit of the present invention.

[00033] In one embodiment, the location 108 in receiver box 116 is automatically populated based upon the location of the hirer.

[00034] In one embodiment, the candidate rating may be verified which is used when suggesting candidates.

[00035] In one embodiment, this system 100 be used in reverse where the candidate will match using his profile and information contained therein to show jobs he would suit.

[00036] In compliance with the statute, the invention has been described in language more or less specific to structural or methodical features. It is to be understood that the invention is not limited to specific features shown or described since the means herein described comprises preferred forms of putting the invention into effect. The invention is, therefore, claimed in any of its forms or modifications within the proper scope of the appended claims appropriately interpreted by those skilled in the art.

[00037] Reference throughout this specification to One embodiment’ or ‘an embodiment’ means that a particular feature, structure, or characteristic described in connection with the embodiment is included in at least one embodiment of the present invention. Thus, the appearance of the phrases ‘in one embodiment’ or ‘in an embodiment’ in various places throughout this specification are not necessarily all referring to the same embodiment. Furthermore, the particular features, structures, or characteristics may be combined in any suitable manner in one or more combinations.
