A step-by-step guide to finding the right candidate

The EURES portal gives companies access to over 350,000 registered CVs, and now searching through them to find the best candidate has never been easier.

A step-by-step guide to finding the right candidate

If you haven’t fully immersed yourself in the portal yet, or don’t consider yourself to be the most tech-savvy, then help is at hand in the form of a video from EURES.

The instructional video “Find Candidates Tutorial” is just over two minutes long and acts as a step-by-step guide, breaking down the whole process of searching and finding suitable candidates via the EURES portal.

The video takes you through the website functions with clear and simple instructions and accompanying screenshots, so that when you come to do your own search, you’ll recognise each section and know exactly what to do and where to go next.

You’ll learn how and where to login, how to conduct a search by occupation, language skills or driver’s license, and how to fine tune your search with more detailed criteria to give you even more relevant results.

The video helps orientate you and allows you to make the most of the “Find Candidates” section, meaning you can fill any vacant positions quickly and easily.

Watch the video now for your guided tour through the EURES portal and find your potential staff members today!
