What is a corporate culture test?

Together with the University of Ghent, we have set up a corporate culture test (What do I want?) that you can fill in without obligation when you register in one of our apps. You can state which corporate culture suits you best by means of a list of questions: what do I expect from an employer, the atmosphere at the company… Very interesting for a new employer to get to know you better and to assess whether your profile would be a good match for them. You are not obliged to complete this test, but if you respond positively to a vacancy, the company may ask you to complete the test. The test takes only a few minutes to complete.

Applicants can take these tests without obligation through our SWOP app. These tests are an added value for both applicants and companies.

For the employer - concerning SWOP.

How does my vacancy appear on SWOP?

With our online job search, SWOP brings together all published job vacancies in Belgium on one job platform, including those published by your company.

What are the advantages of SWOP for me as an employer?

Numerous advantages! On the one hand, your vacancy will get more coverage and you will therefore get more direct inflow. And this without your having to pay extra attention or money. On the other hand, you can work with your vacancies in SWOP yourself via SWOP Recruiter: adjust existing vacancies, personalise them or create new ones yourself, all this together with a handy overview in which you can follow up the vacancies, chat directly to applicants and much more!

Can I receive the inflow at a different e-mail address than the one that is currently being picked up?

You can do this by registering your company on SWOP Recruiter and entering the correct e-mail address.

Why is there no CV attached to the application?

SWOP is a job app that focuses on intuitive applications. Hence, applicants can apply easily and quickly with a simple swipe to the right. Attaching a CV is a voluntary option that we will soon make available in SWOP. However, if you wish to receive CVs from the applicants now, register your company on SWOP Recruiter and ask the applicants to send their CVs via the direct chat function.

I do not want my vacancies to be shown on SWOP.

Are you sure? We cannot force you to do so, of course, but we would remind you of the advantages:

  • More reach for your vacancy

  • More direct inflow

  • No additional administration

  • Completely free of charge

As far as we are concerned, this is a win-win situation. Not convinced yet? Let us know via the contact form

Why doesn't my vacancy appear in SWOP?

If you still wish to make use of SWOP, you can always get involved in the platform as a company via the SWOP Recruiter application. Register and start working with your vacancies in SWOP.

How do I get inflow?

As soon as the applicant enters a search query that matches your vacancy, it will appear on the applicant’s results list. If the applicant applies for your vacancy, you will receive an e-mail with the contact details of this person. You can do the follow-up all by yourself. If you would like help and support from our professional SWOP Recruiters, register on SWOP Recruiter and let us help you.

Can applications in SWOP be linked to the company’s existing ATS/recruitment platform?

Unfortunately, not yet. However, if you bring this to our attention, our SWOP team will inform the applicant on the initial contact. This automatic inclusion is not (yet) possible.

What about the follow-up to the application?

When an applicant applies, you will be informed by e-mail. The intention is that you contact this applicant yourself as soon as possible. After application, the follow-up is done by you to begin with. Our SWOP Team also gets to work and contacts the applicant within 48 hours to check on the status of the application.
