The Qualified stage is a default workflow stage that can be used to determine if a job applicant is initially qualified for the job. The Mark as Qualified step is included by default but can be edited as needed and additional steps can be added to mirror your existing hiring process.
If the applicant is qualified by meeting the necessary requirements of the job and your organization, they should be moved to the next stage. Initiating a step from the next stage will move them automatically or you can use the drop-down at the top of the stages panel to manually move the applicant. For each actionable step within the next stage, click on an individual step name and follow the system prompts, such as sending an interview invitation or performing reference checks. Should the applicant not submit an adequate application, members of the hiring team can use the comments section to add notes and then proceed to reject the candidate.
