What is it?
The U.S. Work Authorization filter enables you to screen candidates who can legitimately work in the U. S. without sponsorship or additional authorization paperwork. hireEZ understands that recruiters find it hard to get their hands on this type of information because it is sensitive in nature.
Therefore, hireEZ has developed algorithms to analyze candidates' possible working status for you to reference, without violations of individuals' private information.
To be clear, the results generated are based on different dimensions of data, making the best guess as to their authorization of work but not directly data of candidates' self-identifying their official status.

Q: How do hireEZ’s algorithms work to determine whether candidates are authorized to work in the U.S.? What parameters are considered?
A: hireEZ considers candidates’ education and work experiences along with their locations to help infer their working statuses in the U.S.
For example, a candidate of Asian descent attends undergraduate school in Asia, then attends graduate school in the U.S., and has worked for a U.S. company for seven years. In this case, it is very likely that the candidate is either a U.S. citizen or a Green Cardholder.
*These factors only make it more likely for hireEZ to tag candidates as authorized to
work in the U.S.
