Ever wonder what hiring administrators look for when reviewing applications? Curious about what you can do to speed up your pre-employment experience? Want to know how we make applying with Amphi so much easier than other places?
At Amphi, we want your time with us to be as easy as possible - even before we bring you onboard! Here's some tips on how to make your application stand out, and how to cut down on the number of times you might need to amend it.

1️⃣ Ensure all required documentation is attached
When you submit your application, our applicant tracking system will attempt to automatically move your application through pre-employment various stages based on the answers you provided on the application.
For example, if the job you applied for requires specific documentation (such as a certificate, or transcripts) and you didn't upload it, the application will automatically be moved to a "pending receipt of documents" stage which sends you a follow-up email requesting that documentation. We can't move forward without all required documentation - this is a common place for applications to be held up.
How do I attach documentation?
If the job requires it, the application will have sections where you can upload those documents; they look like this:
You can even add additional files by selecting this area at the bottom of your application:

2️⃣ Upload your resume/CV
If you have a resume/CV, ensure to upload it (tip: you can upload it to your Connect dashboard and it'll follow all of your applications around). When reviewing applications, this is the main way we can determine if you meet the minimum requirements of the position.
But I don't have a resume/CV!
Don't panic! After submitting your application you'll receive an automated follow-up email that gives you the opportunity to enter your employment history directly into your application.
Unlike other employers, we don't force all of our applicants to enter this information. We believe your time is valuable, even before you join our team - because of that, we don't want to doing double work! If you have a resume, why make you re-type everything into the application?

3️⃣ Add your references
After you submit your application, you'll be prompted to add your references (called "Recommendations") - if recommended for a position, we'll have to contact 3, and can't move forward without them:
Your current/most-recent employer
To make this even faster, ensure to include their email address - we're able to send electronic reference check forms to them, which is by far the easiest way for them to be completed.
Remember, they can't be co-workers, family, or friends!
I forgot to do that/want to add more!
Don't panic! You can always add/edit/update your references via your Connect dashboard.

4️⃣ Check your email/voicemails
In the event we need more information, or if a hiring administrator wants to set up an interview, we'll typically reach out to you by email or phone call. We'd hate to miss an opportunity to have you join our team, especially for something like a missed email or a spam filter.
