ServiceYear.org offers a two-way search, meaning that just as candidates can search for your opportunities, you can also search for individuals who have signed up and are eager to serve! If you discover someone who looks like a good match to apply, you can recommend your listing to them.
How to recommend your listings:
There are currently two ways you can discover candidates to recommend your listing to:
1. View suggested matches in the "Find Candidates" section of your dashboard: This feature will automatically suggest candidates who might be a good fit to apply for your listing.
Select the listing that you are recruiting for, and click "View Matches" to receive results for potential candidates. You can learn more about a candidate by clicking into their card to view their profile.
2. Search all individuals who have published profiles and are looking to complete a service year: Along with viewing your suggested matches, you can also search the entire directory of individuals who are interested in doing a service year.
In the header navigation, select "Host" and click on the icon for "Corps Members" to see results for individuals who are looking to serve.
You can filter your search by a number of different areas, including location, focus area(s) of interest, and education level. If using this feature throughout your recruitment cycle, you can also filter your results to only show individuals who have joined most recently (e.g. if you checked on a weekly basis, you can just view results for who signed up during the past week). To learn more about a candidate, click into their card to view their profile.
Recommending your listing:
If you have one or more active listings, you can click the “Recommend A Listing” button on a candidate’s profile to send them a note encouraging them to check out your listing and apply.
You’ll receive a notification if a candidate accepts your recommendation and expresses interest in your listing.
Tracking your recommendations
Anyone you recommend a listing to will be added to the "Leads" tab in the Corps Members section of your dashboard.
If a candidate you recommend your listing to accepts your recommendation and expresses interest in your listing, they'll move over to the "Candidates" section of your dashboard.
As with candidates, you have the option to message your leads if you'd like to share more info or encourage them to complete an application.
Along with recommending your listing, you can also click the “Save to leads” button on someone's profile to save them to your "Leads" tab. This action will not send any notification to the potential candidate.
