Dover lets you harness the power of AI to sort your applicants. Simply tell DoverBot what you're looking for, and it can narrow your applicants based on your prompts.

🤖 What types of questions can I ask DoverBot?

AI Chat can help you target specific candidates. Below are some examples of what you can ask DoverBot and how to ask it:

💬 You can ask questions directly related to Dover's standard criteria:

  • Narrow down the total years of work experience

    • "People with 5+ years of work experience"

  • Narrow your list of applicants by location

    • "Show me candidates in United States"

    • "Don't show me people in New York or California"

  • Identify candidates by job title

    • "Show me product managers"

    • "Don’t show me technical product managers"

  • Search for specific skills

    • "Candidates skilled in React or TypeScript"

    • "Don’t show me people mentioning hardware"

  • Filter by industry experience

    • "Show candidates with a healthcare background"

    • “No B2C people"

💬 You can ask questions outside of Dover's standard criteria:

  • "Show me candidates who have done data migration projects"

  • “I want to see people who worked at FAANG companies”

  • “Candidates from Ivy League Schools”

  • “People from Spanish speaking countries only"

💬 You can also combine prompts:

  • "Show me people who have experience at enterprise companies and went to a top tier school"

❓ How does AI Chat filter applicants?

When you ask DoverBot what you’re looking for, it will produce answers based on the type of job and on Dover’s filters. Filters allow you to hone in on the exact type of profile that you’re looking for in top applicants. You can filter for things like location, experience, companies, education, and skills. Dover's AI Chat is powered by OpenAI and can also support a number of queries outside of our standard criteria by applying our filtering capabilities in creative ways.
