Applying for internships or your first job can be a tedious and stressful process for candidates. In addition to the research and redundancy associated with applications candidates are also asked to prepare for multiple assessments on various platforms all while balancing school, life, and career.
The Talentboard Application, which is accepted by a growing list of companies, including some Netflix, Figma, and eBay, helps streamline an essential part of the process for candidates.
Through our platform, candidates can apply to multiple companies at once via an Application Plan. So candidates only have to fill out details that most companies require – such as name, past experience and most important take an assessment – one time.
Before we dive into The Talentboard Application process here are few key terms you will want to understand.
An Application Plan is a collection of opportunities that share:
- Job Type
- Application Window
Every opportunity on Talentboard is a part of an Application Plan
An Application window is the start an end date for a group of application plans. Talentboard has 4 Application windows every year. Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer.
A priority deadline is not a hard deadline (you can still submit your application after it and before the Application Window closes), but applications that are submitted before the deadline will receive priority by the recruiting team. Companies consider ALL applications received from Talentboard. Meeting a companies priority deadline literally gives you “priority” in when your application is reviewed.
