Complete Guide to Candidate Labels

Candidate Labels help signify the skill sets you are looking for in an applicant. Labels are visible to your users and are used to sort jobs on your career page. Labels will be attached to applicants when they apply for a job, are completely editable, and are used to create a searchable database for skill sets in your candidate pool.
