Current Candidate Pipeline Analytics

  • SmartRecruit


The Current Pipeline report provides a quick health check of the current state of hiring success in your organization. Check it weekly to stay on top of your hiring success, and communicate its status to your team. We recommend this report to talent acquisition leaders, hiring manager executives and cross-functional lead recruiters.

This report can answer a number of questions, including:

  • Are your getting new candidates for all or some jobs?
  • Does candidate volume exceed your hiring process resources?
  • How many good candidates (in Interview state) do your currently have?
  • How many onsite interviews are scheduled for the near future?
  • How many offers are outstanding?
  • Which candidates can you hope to close soon?

The Pipeline reports count active candidates assigned to jobs.  Leads on jobs or the General Application are not included, so make sure to convert all leads and assign candidates to jobs.
