Your Online Hiring System counts all job seekers who begin to fill out an application but voluntarily leave, or "self-eliminate", without submitting their information. Self-elimination can occur for several reasons. An applicant may realize while filling out the application that their skills do not match the job requirements or the application is lengthy and they do not wish to complete all the required information or they are simply unable to finish the entire application at that time.
The Self-Elimination total can be found per Job in the My Jobs or All Jobs tabs. Reviewing the self-elimination metric can provide valuable insight into your job template. A small number of candidates who self-eliminate is normal and to be expected. If that number is unusually high compared to the number of new applicants, then you may want to review the specific requirements contained in the job template, as they may be overly restrictive or you may be asking for too much information.
