We know you have a lot on your plate, and applicant screening can be a lengthy process.  Between reading resumes and checking references, you're a busy person. No wonder it can be so difficult to remember everything about every candidate.

This job applicant screening checklist can help.

Complete one checklist per candidate as you progress. These brief records will remind you how far in the applicant screening process you've gotten for each candidate. It's also a great tool to refresh your memory of potential red flags you've discovered and compare how each applicant measures up against the others.
