Applicant Processing

From 85 applications received through an online, open-ended, job posting, the hiring team has interviewed the only 5 applicants who met the minimum job qualifications. The hiring team decided that 3 of them lacked the skills necessary for the job, but selected the other 2 for reference checks.

Since you handle recruitment and hiring as an HR Assistant, what steps should you take next in your applicant tracking system?

(Select all acceptable answers.)

Remove the job posting as you already have 2 strong applicants who have passed the interview and are going to have their references checked.
