  • General Questions

  • Is there a limit on the number of candidates I can receive?

    No! Every plan we offer allows an unlimited number of candidates to apply to each job.

  • What if I don't get any candidates?

    A new job posting can take up to 24~48 hours to appear on outside Job Portals after you have posted. If you still haven't received any candidates after this time period, please make sure your phone number and/or email address are NOT in the job description. This is because many candidates will call or email you directly rather than applying through Talent Pegs. We distribute your job and provide the best advice we can about writing quality job titles and descriptions, but we can't guarantee applicants. Feel free to request our feedback on your job ad or ask us other related questions. Use social network and referral tools to seek more application

  • When I rate a candidate using the 5-stars, or apply a status is the rating/status visible to the candidate, or anyone else for that matter?

    No. Candidate ratings/status are never visible to candidates, but are shared between users within your company.

  • Who can view the "Internal Notes" that appear on the candidate page?

    The notes are only visible to you or any users that are on your account. Candidates can never see these notes.

  • How can I collaborate with other team members on rating/reviewing candidates?

Once you add the user, we will send them an invitation email. Then, they click on the link in the email and create their password. Once they are set up, they can access all of the candidates and rate them with their own ratings. You can view other users' ratings on the My Candidates page by using the filter pull-down menu at the top.

  • How do I attract more candidates?

    Job performance is based on a lot of factors and varies depending on industry and location. We encourage clear and concise job descriptions and titles.

  • Why has my candidate flow slowed down?
