3DIQ Candidate Profile Creation Process

3DIQ makes it easy to prepare submissions and get real-time feedback

3DIQ picks up once you have internally submitted candidates to a job in Bullhorn. This process walks you through creating a candidate profile that you submit to your client.

Profile Creation

After clicking into the 3DIQ tab, the job, and internally submitted candidates will populate so that you can prepare the candidate profile and submit candidates to your clients.

First, you will create a profile based on the default profile template created by your 3DIQ administrator.  If multiple profiles have been created, review this article to see how to change profiles - Custom Proflies

Creating a Standard Profile

3DIQ offers you the option to create a standard candidate packet that can be shared across multiple jobs without the need to edit each time a candidate is submitted to a job. Using either the candidate's resume file, the default candidate profile, (resume parsed into Bullhorn), or fields from the candidate's Bullhorn profile, you can easily generate a profile to submit your candidate to multiple jobs.

Once the candidate is internally submitted to a job and you access 3DIQ, click the Create Profile button next to the candidate's name.


A pop-up will appear where you will see any files that are attached to the candidate's profile in Bullhorn. You also have the option to select “Use Bullhorn Fields,” which will pull the candidate's information based on the default profile associated with your account. If you parse your candidate's resume file into Bullhorn, you can select the “Use Resume Text” button to create the profile using the candidate's parsed resume from their candidate record.

Save Multiple Profiles

If you need to save multiple profiles for a candidate, select a file, resume text, or Bullhorn fields option. Edit the candidate data as usual and give each profile a unique name.

Once a profile is created, it will be stored in the Saved Profiles drop-down menu and will be available any time you submit the candidate for a job.

Internal Notes

Internal notes are for communication between a recruiter and an Account or Sales Manager that are not shown to your client.  The notes can be edited by using the toolbar to edit any of the variables such as fonts, text color, alignment, bullets, and insert an image.

Recruiter Notes

Recruiter notes are used for highlighting a candidate's information that you want your client to see.  They can be added to the comments field on the internal submission in Bullhorn (which will auto-populate the 3DIQ field or added manually in 3DIQ. The notes can be edited by using the toolbar to edit any of the variables such as fonts, text color, alignment, bullets, and insert an image.


Use the attachments section to add additional candidate files (i.e. cover letter, assessment results, and portfolios) that you would like to share with your client.  Files saved to the candidate record in Bullhorn can be added by clicking the 'Select file from Bullhorn' button and selecting the file.  For files saved to a folder on your computer, click the Browse button, locate the file then click the 'Add file' button. This file will then be a clickable link on the candidate's profile and viewable by your client. 


Highlight your candidate's top skills by adding them to their profiles.  Click the 'Edit Candidate' button and use the skills bank to search existing entries. If the skill you are looking for does not exist, create new skills by entering the name of the skill and clicking +Add Tag then click the bolded skill name.  This tag will then be added to the skill bank for future use.  Click the 'Update Candidate' button to save all changes.

Once all changes have been made to the profile you can, depending on your role, send the candidate to your Account or Sales Manager for review or Email & Log the Submission to submit the candidate to your client. 

Email Account Manager

If your agency has a Split Desk recruiting model, the recruiter can email the profile to the Account or Sales Manager (Job Owner in Bullhorn) once the candidate's profile has been created and updated. Simply click the “Email Account Manager” button at the top of the candidate profile page and a Submission Ready email will automatically be sent to the Account or Sales Manager.

The Account or Sales Manager can review the submission and, when ready, email the profile link to the client.

Email & Log Submission

Once the Account or Sales Manager reviews the profile and is ready to send the candidate to their client, click the “Email & Log Submission” button.


This will generate a pre-populated email including recruiter notes and the profile link.

Click 'Send' to send the email to your client.  This email will be in your 'Sent" folder in your email (Gmail or Outlook). 

By emailing and logging the submission, your candidate will be moved to the Client Submission status and a Client Submission note will be written in Bullhorn.  If you use the Client Connect portal, your client will now see the candidate in the client portal.
