Applicant pools are the people who have applied for open positions with an organization. The employer utilizes the applicant pool for the selection process by reducing the number of candidates to a short list. If there is a large number of individuals in an applicant pool, a long list may need to precede the short list. Applicant pools may be enormous for some jobs, with thousands of qualified candidates. This produces difficulties for hiring managers who need to distinguish between candidates to create a short list. Determining relevant selection criteria that meet the job requirements are essential to decreasing an applicant pool to candidates suitable for the position.
