Taleo Integration Configuration Steps

  1. To enable the integration in Taleo ATS, access the screening service list in the configurations. Select the Harver Assessment Serviceimage-20240217-093353.png
  2. The service requires;

    1. ClientId which is Harver accountId

    2. Username

    3. Password

      Copy the username and password from Harver Integrations Credentials section.image-20240217-093523.png

  3. The customer can view the Result fields that are available via the Result Fields section. These fields are used to display result data that is returned by Harver. E.g.

    1. Additional Result 1..6 can be filled based KMI configuration

    2. DetailsUrl is link to PDF report or Candidate detail page Score is Overall Matching score and can be combined with Band (“70 (Green)”)image-20240217-093831.png

  4. Configure the Service implement model i.e.

    1. Mixed - allowing the recruiter to set whether the assessment request should be handled as candidate-centric or recruiter-centric at the requisition level

    2. Or can be set at service level and all assessment requests will be handled as specified i.e.

      1. candidate-centric - The candidate gets redirected to Harver during the application process: This can be a redirect (called 'inline') or in a popup

      2. recruiter-centric - Assessment stages: the candidate gets an email invite after recruiter sets a candidate in certain phaseimage-20240211-184811.png

  5. The Harver Assessment integration can be set to display the Assessment in either a “pop-up” window or “inline” (within the same browser window as the candidate’s application). This is set up in the Screening block of the Application Flow. Note that this setting only affects Assessment that are set up as Candidate-Centric.image-20240217-094208.png
  6. When creating a Requisition, the customer recruiter needs to associate that requisition with the Harver Assessment and (optionally) choose the Requisition Implementation Model (if the Service Implementation Model is set to “Mixed”). If the Service Implementation Model is set to a value other than “Mixed”, then the Requisition Implementation Model should be left un-selected as it will be ignored when processing requests.image-20240217-094407.png
  7. Note: The list of valid Harver Assessment Solution is maintained in the Harver-AssessmentId in the Configuration portion of the Taleo application. The client and Harver must jointly define the values for this selection list.image-20240217-094519.png

Now all configuration is completed and stage is added which will trigger the integration with Harver when a candidate falls in this stage.

Inviting Candidate: Candidate-Centric flow

OPTION 1: Career Section Application Flow

  1. In this scenario, the candidate takes the Assessment directly on the career section while completing his application. When clicked on the screening assessment the candidate is redirected to Harver.image-20240217-095342.png
  2. Once the candidate has finished the Assessment, they will return to fully submit their application.image-20240217-103025.png

OPTION 2: Manual Request by Recruiter
