The School/University filter lets you filter candidates based on the school names they’ve provided during the application process. SmartRecruiters extracts these school names when the candidate applies by:
- Uploading a resume,
- Providing their LinkedIn or Indeed profile, or
- Manually filling out their resume.
It’s possible to reject a candidate without providing a reason. Candidates who were rejected without a reason will not show up in this filter’s results.
The School/University filter does not support Boolean operations (e.g, AND, OR).
To filter candidates by the school(s) they attended:
- Click the filter’s search field to see a list of every school on your candidates’ applications.
- Select one from the list, or start typing to filter the list for a particular school.
For performance reasons, SmartRecruiters will retrieve the first 1000 schools from your account, rather an exhaustive list. If you have a lot of candidates, you may find that the list of schools doesn’t include the one you’re searching for.
If so, just type the whole school name, then click Add: <title> to search for it.
Most common schools
Underneath the School/University filter are listed the top five most common schools on your candidates’ applications. Select one or more to filter for candidates who attended that school.
