Your Online Hiring System counts all job seekers who begin to fill out an application, but then leave or self eliminate without submitting their information. Self elimination could occur for several reasons. An applicant may realize while filling out the application that their skills did not match your job requirements, the application was lengthy and they didn’t want to complete all the required information, or they simply could not finish the entire application at that time.
The Self Eliminations total can be found per Job on the My Jobs or All Jobs tabs. Reviewing the self elimination metric can provide valuable insight into your job template. A small number of candidates who self eliminate is normal and to be expected. If that number is unusually high compared to the number of new applicants, then you may want to review the specific requirements contained in the job template, as they may be overly restrictive or you may be asking for too much information.
