Candidate fields


You can manage all information which you consider important regarding an applicant in the category candidate fields.

In addition to the preset candidate fields, you can add any customized fields that suit your requirements. 


Here you need to distinguish between the general fields at the applicant level and customized information about an applicant who is applying for a specific position. 


Customized fields at applicant level can be e.g. the potential start date or salary expectations


Customized fields at the level of a job posting can be e.g. the tech stack for the job posting developer (m / f / d) . 


All of the fields which you have created can also be used simultaneously in the candidate view on your career site. 

Types of customized fields: 

  • Boolean value: Use this field if the only possible answer you expect is a “yes” or “no”. You hereby create a checkbox that can be checked later. 

  • Date: To ensure that the entered date is displayed correctly for different local preferences (e.g. American vs. German spelling), it is best to use the Date field.

  • Email: Use this field if you want to enter an email address for the applicant. 

  • List: If you want to make sure that only certain values are entered in a field, you need to create a list. By doing so, you can determine which answers can be selected later. 

  • Number: This field accepts all kind of numbers.

  • Text field: If you need space for more information, you can also add a text field. Up to 1000 characters can be entered here. 



Scorecards should help you and your team to assess your applicants objectively. At the end of an assessment based on the scorecards, Kenjo shows you how well the candidate fits to the position in percent. This makes your decision a lot easier!


Moreover, the evaluation of the sections and skills helps you to create a concrete requirement profile for the job opening. 

To assign scorecards to the various job ads, first create all parameters in the settings. Here is an example: 

Candidate tags

To get an even better overview of the applicant profile at first glance, you can choose different tags. 

Add all tags relevant for your recruiting process and assign them to the applicants later.
