Shortlisting Services

Designed to save you hours of screening time, by identifying top 'interviewable' candidates with high potential

Our Shortlisting Service is designed for Managers who simply do not have the time to post and promote job openings, sift through hundreds of resumes, or spend hours screening potential candidates.

A dedicated HR Professional will measure candidates on several dimensions to predict their potential and narrow down your search to  the top candidates. Letting us focus on these administrative shortlisting tasks will allow you to focus your valuable time on your business.

How it Works

1

Profile Job

The best chance of making a great hire starts with knowing exactly who you’re looking for! During your introductory call with your Dedicated HR Representative we will establish and create a comprehensive job profile as well as confirm the Shortlisting process with you.

2

Write the Ad

Based on the job profile that has been established, a customized job ad will be written by one of our HR Professionals and presented to you for confirmation. Utilizing our best practice knowledge and studies, we will create job ads that will attract the right candidates to apply and the wrong ones to stay away.

3

Post the Job

In order to have the best chance to make a great hire, you need to cast the widest net possible! We have two job posting bundles which you can choose from. The more places you post the more candidates we will have to work with.

  • Bundle 1: Sponsored Craigs List, sponsored Kijiji, and Free Sourcing.
  • Bundle 2 : Workopolis OR Monster, LinkedIn, sponsored Craigs List, sponsored Kijiji, and Free Sourcing.

Shortlist – Assess & Score

All candidates that apply through our Shortlisting Service will be assessed on their qualifications, traits (through psychometric testing) and culture fit. Each candidate will be scored based on their match with the job profile which provides us with a much better assessment than just reading their resume!

Phone Interview

PIVOTAL will coordinate up to 10 phone interviews for candidates that have been selected as potential fits for your role. The phone interview will confirm all information we have collected during the application process as well as address any job specific items you would like to confirm during this stage of the recruitment process.

Schedule Interviews

Once the top ‘interviewable’ candidates have been selected PIVOTAL will schedule all in-person interviews for you. You will be provided with a customized interview guide for each candidate which will help you assess the candidate’s fit based on the job profile as well as any potential ‘red flags’ highlighted in their application.
