Capture candidate salary expectations in the job application process

12

It would be good to list somewhere in the application process and on candidate profiles what their salary expectation for the role is.

    If added, this should be visible only be hiring managers and recruiters.

    Okay - as this feature has been voted up a few times... I'll jump on the grenade.

    My experience tells me that asking candidates for their salary expectations as part of a structured online application process is not the way to go.  i.e. - if you want salary information, call the candidate and ask them for it.  If the community feels otherwise, please voice your opinion!

    Storing compensation information for candidates in a structured way and controlling access to who has that information seems useful.

    Thus far we've recommended that you simply store compensation information in private notes, which has been working fine.

    If you'd like somewhere other than in private notes (a fielded attribute for candidate records) - it seems like it would be pretty click heavy to enter this information... and likely would end up back in notes anyway to avoid the clicking around.  Our instinct is to improve private notes to be shared with more people - i.e. just enter comp info along with other screening notes on the candidate, make the note private, but then *share it* with the hiring manager - so the private note is visible by more than one person.

    For those of you who want a separate compensation attribute/field, what would you want to do with this information? Search it?  Filter by it?

    Compensation requirements are important and please let us know how we can make things better other than adding a field...

    Hi, we are making some updates to notes this week to address this concern.  We aren't adding a field for salary informaiton but are instead *enhancing* notes to be able to make multi-user private notes.

    So, for instance, if you add a note with salary requirements and want to share them *only* with the hiring manager you'll be able to make the note private and then *add* the hiring manager to the note so they can see it...
