Once you’ve located a candidate you’d like to contact, you can get in touch with them directly from within Underdog.io. To do so, press the ‘Send Email’ button in the lower right corner of the Candidate Profile.
There are a few distinct benefits to utilizing our Email Relay system:
- It signals to Candidates that you’re reaching out via Underdog.io, and in turn, improves your Candidate Response Rate.
- When Candidates receive an email via our Email Relay system, they’re prompted to accept or decline outreach from your company. If a Candidate says “no,” they’ll be asked to share more information about why they’ve elected to decline an interview with your organization, giving you access to valuable candidate feedback.
- When you begin a conversation with a Candidate via our Email Relay service, each message in the thread will include a link to their Candidate Profile in Underdog.io, ensuring their information is easy to locate within the tool.
- If you reach out to a Candidate utilizing this tool and they don’t respond to your email, we’ll also send along an automated follow up after three days, making candidate engagement less manual for your team.
If you find that pressing the ‘Send Email’ button is directing you to the wrong email client, you can remedy this by updating your default mailto settings.
