What does a user’s “Typical Role” mean?

“Typical Role” describes how this individual usually participates in the hiring process.

Each role has a preset candidate alert frequency and note alert frequency, so when they are assigned to a Hiring Team specific values are pre-set as follows:

Role Candidate Alert Frequency Note Alert Frequency
Interviewer Never


Hiring Manager Immediately Never
Human Resources Daily Digest Never
Other Never Never
Recruiter Immediately


Recruiting Coordinator Never


It’s possible to override the candidate alert and note alert frequency for individuals on hiring teams on a case by case basis, the typical role is merely there to help you avoid clicking as you add users to hiring teams.

If you have thoughts on what other controls and permissions should be assigned to job-specific roles, please share them in the Ideas Forum.
