Skills and Certifications are a great way to highlight key competencies on your candidate profiles. Many hiring managers will review these sections first, before viewing the candidate's resume. Because of this, it's important that Skills and Certifications accurately reflect your candidate's experience.

If you currently use the "Skills" field within the Bullhorn candidate profile, 3DIQ will merge these tags into 3DIQ Skills. Additionally, if you choose to parse the resume, Skills and Certifications are added automatically to candidate profiles in 3DIQ during this process.

3DIQ gives you the ability to add, delete and create custom skills and certifications. To view skills and certifications, click the Edit Candidate button in the Candidate Profile section or click the ... menu and select Edit Candidate.

Adding Tags

To add Skills or Certifications, click in either box and start typing in the "Search for skill" box. If the skill is available, click to add it to the list of displayed skills.

If the skill or certification is not available, you'll see a message that says "No entry found for 'engineering manager' +Add Tag". Simply, click "Add Tag" to create your custom tag.

Now click the tag 'engineering manager' which will save it for future use.

Deleting Tags

To delete a tag, simply click the "x" next to the skill you want to remove.

To remove all tags, click the 'x' on the right side of the skills or certification field.

Finally, you can customize both the titles and colors for Skills and Certifications. Just make sure to choose a darker color that will contrast with the white text.
