This score predicts how relevant the application is to the given job. Based on relevance, candidates get categorized as “High Match”, “Medium Match” or “Low Match”. It also gives an objective understanding of the overall application and it is possible to check detailed scores as well by just hovering on the relevance score.

5. Feedback from rejected applicants
