Reviewing resumes with TalVista

Managing candidates and resumes


Blind resume review

  • From the job dashboard, drag a PDF or Word doc resume into the upload field (You can add several files at once)
  • Watch the uploads progress
  • If any uploads fail, you’ll be prompted to correct the required fields (first and last name, email)


As resumes are made available in the system, job Owners and assigned Reviewers can review them.

Rank resume categories in order of importance

  • Drag and drop each category to arrange them in order of highest to lowest importance
  • (This weighting system will influence the candidate’s overall rating)
  • Weighting categories ahead of time helps you make your decision based on the criteria you said is most important when reviewing resumes
  • You can click skip on any categories you don’t wish to review



Resume categories

Rate each section

  • Now you’ll be shown each resume one at a time
  • Each resume has the candidate’s identity removed
  • You’ll have the opportunity to assess each resume on the same categories you prioritized from most to least important on the previous page
  • Give a category a “Yes”, “Maybe” or “No” to answer whether you’d like to advance someone to the next round based on that section of the resume

Review the final scores




After the final resume is scored, click Done reviewing to display the candidates’ full information and to review the candidates aggregate score. This score is the composite of your review and rating of each resume and section based on the prioritization weight you assigned that category before starting your review.

Once the review is complete and the scores are displayed you can select candidates for a round of interviews by checking their box on the job dashboard.
