When an applicant applies how long until I see their application?

Learn how long it takes to process applications and why

Typically we take around 15 minutes to process an application.

Without giving away our secret sauce we need to:

  • Parse the CV into plain-text if needed
  • Parse the plain-text CV into HR-XML
  • Use our bespoke CV scoring algorithm
  • Calculate the applicants commuting distance
  • Send a "thank you" email
  • Invite the applicant to Shortlist+ (if you've chosen this)
  • If necessary invite the applicant to: download an application form/visit a career site (not recommended)
  • And much more...

On rare occasions there may be a delay when we are unable to parse the applicant's CV, so we ask the applicant a better version.
