What are the gross negative disqualifiers (GNDs)?
Gross negative disqualifier (GNDs) is another name for a killer question, which is a form of automated screening. These are questions which is asked right at the start of the application process to firstly allow a candidate to self-qualify that they are suitable for the role they are applying to (e.g. they have the necessary mandatory qualification) in order to avoid them unnecessarily having to complete the entire application form only to be screened out immediately. Secondly, from the recruiter side, these questions reduce the number of inappropriate candidates that need to be screened, so more focus may be given to more suitable candidates.
