Process Applications

Next comes processing all these applications. You’re going to screen and organize every single application into either a green file or a red file. This can be a physical green and red file in your office, or you can create one in a folder within each position. For example, “Reception”: within that file, you’re going to have a red file/green file.​ 


So, ensure the application has the applicant’s name on it, and then just simply say “red” or “green”. This will help you narrow down your search. And also, for future recruiting, you can go back to your files and remember which ones were good and which ones were not so good, or didn’t meet your minimum requirements. Whatever your system is, keep it simple, but organized.
