Search! 2.0 – Compare the best candidates

Textkernel has made a new release of Search! available. Search!, semantic multi-database search, helps recruiters to easily find the best candidates. Search! not only makes the internal databases better searchable, it also simultaneously searches for candidates in multiple external sources. The Search! 2.0 release contains many new features that make it even easier to filter out the best candidates from the database:

Score indicator
After entering your search query in Search!, you receive a list of candidates ranked by the best fit. How well your candidate scores on the individual criteria is now shown by the score indicator. By hovering your mouse over the score, you will directly see which criteria your candidate does or does not meet. This way you will get even better insights into your results.

Compare candidates
What candidates match your search query best on paper? Which applicants will you invite for a first interview? You can now easily compare candidates in Search!. The ‘compare candidate’-view gives you an overview of a selection of candidates and how they match your search criteria. This allows you to easily and quickly make a selection of the most interesting profiles.

Reporting
