Home !
Overview of All Applications !

Free hosted solution that allows you to create listings, score applicants, track progress and generate reports.

JobScore is a self-service recruiting solution for employers.

With JobScore there's no need to talk to pushy salespeople or pay expensive consultants. Just
sign up and get started.

Set up is easy. Sign in to your account, add your logo, and choose your colors. Then point the "jobs" link on your company website at your JobScore careers site.

Instead of applying by sending you their resume as an email attachment, candidates apply online using your careers site.

Careers Site

JobScore powers the careers pages of your company's website. We make it easy for you to keep your job listings up to date, and even easier for candidates to apply over the web. Every JobScore customer gets their own custom careers site.

We extract key information, work experience and education history from each applicant's resume, and they verify whether we've got it right.

JobScore displays profiles in a standardized format so you can quickly determine who to call. You control whether you review applicants in your online account, daily digest e-mails or individual e-mail alerts.

Post Jobs

JobScore makes it easy to post jobs and drive applicants to apply online through your careers site. You can stop wasting time entering your job into a bunch of different job boards: we publish your jobs to multiple job boards with one click. We publish to CareerBuilder, Craigslist, HotJobs, Indeed, LinkedIn, and SimplyHired and we're adding new boards all the time.

Request Referrals

Referrals are the best way to hire people. JobScore makes it easy for you to send email to your personal and professional networks, driving referrals to apply online through your careers site.


JobScore provides visibilty into what's working. There's no need to spend hours every week manually compiling reports. All users can see how things are going at any time.

  • Track interviewing progress, marketing effectiveness and pipeline quality all on one screen.

  • Create custom lists of jobs by department, location and status using the filters on the candidate manager.

  • Create custom lists of candidates by job, status, score or source using the filters on the candidate manager.

Score Candidates

JobScore helps you zero-in on qualified candidates. Just enter your criteria and our match engine will generate a score for each of your candidates.

We feed your criteria into our match engine and score each candidate on a 10 point scale.

With JobScore there's no mystery, you can easily drill down into exactly why each candidate gets a certain score.

Review reports to make sure that you've got qualified people in your pipeline, and use average scores to see if your job marketing activities are generating qualified candidates.

Email Alerts

JobScore helps you stay organized by sending email alerts. Candidate alerts let you know when people apply for your jobs, task alerts help keep the ball rolling, and weekly activity reports keep everyone focused on reaching your hiring goals.

Choose between reviewing applicants in individual emails or a daily digest.

See a snapshot of what you need to do using your daily task digest. JobScore also sends you an alert each time someone assigns you a task.

Track your progress using weekly activity report emails.

Assign Tasks

JobScore helps you collaborate because hiring is a team effort. Invite your entire team into your JobScore account and assign each other tasks so you can stay on track.

Track all your to-do items using the tasks manager and daily task digest emails. Make sure that nothing falls through the cracks by tracking the tasks you assign to others.


Every company has its own hiring process. JobScore doesn't force you to work a certain way, you can customize the system to work the way you want.

  • Create and track your own step-by-step hiring process using candidate status options.

  • Create custom task categories so people know what to do when you assign them a task.

Luscher Free Color Test as a means of Fast Evaluating Applicants

Home !
Overview of All Applications !

Luscher Free Color Test is a highly precise and easy to use software that offers a fairly accurate analysis of your personality. This software is based on the fundamentals of colors representing your changing moods and hidden hopes and wants, which will help you to understand your actual situation.

The purpose of this simple, interactive software is to provide an analysis of your present situation and also help you pinpoint the actual problems of the applicant in life, which might enable which suitable remedial measures are to be undertaken.

Luscher Free Color Test is an effective online testing tool that attempts to throw light on significant aspects of the human personality. This test is based on the lifetime research conducted by Dr. Max Luscher, and successfully draws attention to areas of psychological and physiological stress in an individual’s personality.

The Color Test is used extensively by physicians, particularly psychologists, as well as by researchers and corporate organizations that wish to understand the personality profile of a probable recruit. Since the 1950’s, this test has been administered by hundreds of thousands of people all over the world.

I used it when I was a HR-manager in order to evaluate employees applicating for a vacancy. It always gave me a straightforward view of "the inner side of the applicant". And this in a short time.

Luscher Free Color Test is a completely free online test, and the best part lies in the fact that it can be administered within five to eight minutes, making it one of the fastest online tests to be ever administered.

All that the user needs to do is to select a single color one by one from a selection of eight different colors. As you click on one color, it disappears from view. After you click on all of them, the colors again reappear after a minute. You need to select them once again, and not necessarily in the order in which you selected them in the first round. These selections should be made randomly, just as you would choose colors for a new car or your bedroom curtains.

According to Dr. Max Luscher, the originator of this test, each of these colors has a definite significance.

Grey - You are a passive individual and most unwilling to be involved in any activity, even those that are mentally and physically stimulating. This attitude has stemmed from your past, which has been so exhaustive for you that you now seek to be totally uninvolved and have withdrawn into your own shell.

Blue - True to the meaning of this color, you are a peaceful individual, who is constantly in search of mental satisfaction and contentment, be it in your family life or work life. A sense of belongingness to the people you love reigns uppermost on your mind.

Green - You have a strong desire to achieve your rightful place in society and be recognized for your efforts. You want to be more determined and at the same time, more flexible to establish yourself even in the adverse situation that you are in. You seek self-reliance and independence.

Red - You are a really intense and passionate person with a desire to live life to the fullest. Your intense energy reflects in your animated behavior and enthusiastic way of speaking. All of your efforts are solely concentrated at success and you wish to conquer any given situation.

Yellow - You are likely to have an ongoing feeling of being stressed out in your present relationship or even work situation, and you badly need a change to relieve yourself. This makes you embark on a new journey to seek out new and circumstantially better possibilities.

Violet - You are a sentimental person, one who has a longing for emotional tenderness from a loved one. Your search for a romantic partner actually translates to a need to identify with someone and depends on a desire to gain support through your partner’s charm and social reach.
Brown - You are a person who feels bogged down by a lot of problems and actively seek a way out for emotional release. A secure atmosphere complete with physical comforts is what you really want to relax and recharge your batteries.

Black - You are an individual who definitely feels his/her present situation is not conducive to your health or your personal progress, and actively wants some way to release the pent up tension. Moreover, you are a person who simply refuses to let any other person or situation, influence your views in life.
