Database searches

Anonymous - Jun 19, 2015
Back to Ask the Experts

Hello-

When we are conducting searches of external databases (ie. Milwaukee Jobs), I know must save the search criteria, the search date, and job board name. My question relates to the records that result from that search. Say we put in our search criteria and 50 resumes pop up as meeting the minimum qualifications, but we only review 30 of those resumes. Let’s say we contact those 30 candidates and ask that they submit an online application, but only 20 of them follow through and complete the application. Are we required to keep the 30 or 20 resumes, if our standard policy is to require interested candidates to apply online? Two, would those who declined to follow our process now fall out as being considered under the Internet Applicant definition? Thanks.
