Contacting Candidates from a Database Search

Anonymous - Aug 21, 2017
Back to Ask the Experts

We are considering use of an external resume database for some of our positions. Job seekers would then be invited to apply to the position through our website.

If a search returns 30 job seekers (which are all considered by assessment of their resume and all meet the basic qualifications of the job), I understand that all of those resumes must be retained. However, are we required to also invite all 30 job seekers to apply? Or may we be selective in who receives an invitation? Could we also choose to not invite any of them?
