We’d like to take this opportunity to explain a piece of existing functionality, and how you can use it to use it to save you time – especially if you are a Premium Member and are sending responses to multiple jobseekers.
Summarised in a sentence, the Screening Letter allows you to send an email template, of your own creation, to multiple jobseekers/job applicants.
To use this functionality you first need to compose your email template, you can do this by clicking the ‘Screening Letter’ link on your left-hand-side navigation and compose the mail. Once you’ve finished editing it, click Save.
When you’re ready to start sending screening letters to jobseekers, you can choose recipients from your job applicants list, and from your Shortlised CVs and your Purchased CVs pages (you can only send screening letters to jobseekers whose CVs you’ve downloaded.) Click the ‘Screen’ icon on the job-seekers mini-cv. This takes you to your saved screening letter.
You can further customise the Screening Letter, for the intended recipient, by editing it on that page, to, for example, add their name or other personal details – when you’re happy with it, click Send.
Your screening letter has been sent to the jobseeker, and all replies will be sent direct to your regsitered email address.
Remember, if you can think of new features that would help you in your search for an au pair we’d love to hear about it. If we implement it we’ll give you a free account upgrade, see here for more details.
