How to Use a Hiring Selection Matrix Template

The hiring selection matrix is an essential tool for any organization when it comes to selecting the right candidate for the job. To get the most out of this template, follow the steps outlined below:

1. Establish the criteria

Before you can start using the selection matrix, you need to determine the criteria you will use to evaluate potential candidates. Think about the skills and qualifications that are most important for the role you are filling and use that to create a list of criteria.

Create tasks in ClickUp to list out the criteria for success.

2. Assign weights to each criteria

Once you have a list of criteria, assign a weight to each one to represent how important it is relative to the other criteria. This will help you decide which candidates to prioritize.

Use custom fields in ClickUp to assign weights to each criteria.

3. Gather data

Now it's time to start gathering data on potential candidates. You can do this by asking candidates to fill out a survey, conducting interviews, and/or doing a background check.

Create tasks in ClickUp to assign tasks for data gathering and assign them to the appropriate team members.

4. Input data into the selection matrix

Once you have collected the necessary data, input it into the selection matrix. This will allow you to compare candidates on the same criteria, making it easier to make a decision.

Use the Table view in ClickUp to input the data into the selection matrix.

5. Make your decision

Once the data has been entered into the matrix, you should have a clear idea of which candidate is the best fit for the role.

Create a Milestone in ClickUp to mark your decision-making process and track progress.
