Backstory: I’m looking to hire someone (@Jarland Is it allowed/a good idea to post the job offering?). Even if it’s only one job position and a few dozen candidates I quickly found out that text files in a folder structure just ain’t gonna cut it.
Ideally self-hosted, I’d like a FREE solution that allows attaching all sorts of info to a candidate profile, incorporates the concept of “stages”, and allows searching/sorting.
Info can include pictures, resumes, letters of introductions, answers to questionnaires, interviewers’ reports, extent to which key requirements are met…you know, all sorts of things. Stages go from “Hey, I found a promising profile on LinkedIn” to initial contact, phone interview, basic screening, video interview, and so on; some stages might be pretty standard but it should be possible to add to and customize the pipeline. Sorting means I should be able to quickly find out who offers the best bang for the buck, based on ratings and salary ranges. Searching means I should be able to list only those greenlighted by a particular reviewer.
HR is not my living, so I’m going to prefer something easy to setup and use, even if not very feature-rich. And I’m not looking to spend money on this, so no try-and-buy/limited offers aimed at acquiring a customer.
EDIT: here is the job posting.
