Hint: Anytime you are reviewing an individual candidate and want to return to the candidate list, click the Up to the Candidate List button.
Each candidate goes through a series of steps and statuses during the hiring process. – See Appendix A for Steps and Statuses As a hiring manager or assistant, you will be moving your candidates through these steps and statuses. Once the HR recruiter reviews the incoming applications, they will release them for further review and the candidates will then be listed among the UT-Search Committee Review step with a To Be Reviewed status.
Managing your Candidates In the To Be Reviewed status of the Search Committee Review step, each committee will further review the candidates and select a pool to be interviewed. Prior to establishing an interview pool, all applications should be requested for review and release by HR. The job posting can be removed at any time the hiring department informs HR of a sufficient applicant pool.
Managing your Candidates An important step in the exempt hiring process is the approval of the primary and secondary interview pools by the Office of Equity and Diversity (OED). This MUST be completed before interviews are scheduled. Note: This step is not required for a non exempt position. Non exempt instructions continue on Slide #61.
Equity and Diversity Approval The following slides will demonstrate step-by-step instructions for moving a candidate through the OED step and status approval process.
You may change the step or status of multiple applicants at the same time ONLY if all selected applicants are moving to the same step/status. As an example of changing multiple applicants at the same time, this demo will show the process for identifying the primary and secondary interview pools for OED approval. OED requests that each hiring department submits both a primary and secondary interview pool for approval. Primary pools will consist of top candidates intended to be interviewed and secondary pools consist of alternate interview possibilities.
Equity and Diversity Approval To access the employment Applicant Tracking System directly and not via an email link, enter the following URL in the search window of your web browser: – https://ut.taleo.net
Accessing your Candidate List If you are not logged into the UT Network, you will be asked to log in using your netid and password.
On the Main Menu, click View Candidates to view and manage the candidates for your requisition.
A list of your active requisitions appears. Click on the right arrow next to the requisition title to see the list of candidates to be reviewed.
From this display, you may choose multiple candidates and change their status to ask for OED approval to interview.
Choose candidates by checking the box to the left of the names. To change the status of all chosen applicants, click More Actions, then Change Step/Status among the drop- down menu.
Click the drop-down arrow to choose the New Status Primary Pool for OED Approval. Click Save and Continue. Check the Send Correspondence box. This will send an email to OED that a candidate has been placed in one of the interview pools. There will be an email sent for each of the candidates chosen.
Click the Selector button to be presented a list of correspondence. Click the Select button for the UT- Ready for OED Approval correspondence.
Notice the correspondence is now listed. You may enter comments if you wish, but it is not required. Click Next to continue.
A template email will appear with an error. The error is to ensure that the “To:” field is complete. To complete, click the Edit button.
The “To:” field is highlighted. Please send all correspondences to Bryan-Samuel@utc.edu for OED approval.Bryan-Samuel@utc.edu If you would like to preview the email, click Preview. Click Send and Close to send the approval email.
Perform the same process for the alternate pool group, choosing Secondary Pool for OED Approval as the New Status. OED requests for each hiring department to email a copy of interview questions and evaluation rubrics/tools at the time the Primary and Secondary Interview Pools are submitted for approval. All communications should be sent to Bryan- Samuel@utc.edu.Bryan- Samuel@utc.edu
Required Steps & Statuses Once interview pools receive OED approval, the New Status will read as Primary Pool Approved by OED and Secondary Pool Approved by OED for each presented candidate. Note: Non exempt candidates should still be in the To Be Reviewed status of the Search Committee Review Step. Steps and statuses must be changed to further move the candidates through the interview and selection process. There are several statuses among each step that can be utilized by the hiring department (See Appendix A), however, candidates can be moved through the process more quickly by only utilizing the required statuses needed to advance them to the next step.
Required Steps & Statuses From the exempt Primary/Secondary Pool Approved by OED status or non exempt To Be Reviewed status, one or multiple candidates can be advanced to the Search Committee Interview step and Present to Hiring Manager status by repeating the More Actions>Change Step/Status action after selecting the individual candidate(s).

Rejecting Unsuccessful Candidates Once the successful candidate job offer has been approved, extended, and accepted, the hiring department must now reject the remaining unsuccessful candidates to complete the UT Jobs/Taleo process for a requisition. You can enter individual applicant profiles by clicking directly on their name or click the box next to the applicants name to select that individual. Next, click More Actions (as previously done when changing steps and statuses), and then choose Reject Candidate.
If the action to be taken is to reject the applicant, click on Reject Candidate. Note: This view is within the applicant’s profile.

Check the appropriate reason for rejecting applicant. Click Save and Close. HINT: You may reject multiple applicants at the same time ONLY if the reject reason is the same for all selected applicants.
