All Things Upwork
September 22, 2010 by Mollie Carter

After you post a job on oDesk, you want to evaluate applications and make a great hire – quickly and easily.  We have introduced new applicant tracking tools to help you do just that!

  • No more hunting for interview threads. All messages between you and your applicants are now embedded in the candidate detail page.  Review the applicant’s cover letter and profile, read incoming messages and reply to them – all in one place.
  • New negotiation tool. Get to an agreement fast with contractors you wish to hire.  Easily propose a new hourly rate, weekly salary or other terms.  No back and forth messages – just a simple offer screen.
  • Views to easily manage your applicants. Separate tabs for candidates who have applied and those you have begun interviewing. Declined applicants are also kept out of your way in their own tab.
  • More responsive interface. You’ll notice significantly faster performance, allowing you to zip through the hiring process faster than ever.

Building your own global dream team of top contractors at reasonable rates is what oDesk is all about.  Our new applicant tracking tools are one more way we help you to easily leverage the power of remote work.  Check out the new tools and let us know what you think!
