The shortlist is the set of job applicants that have passed the initial resume review process.

If you have been shortlisted, you (or simply your resume) will be submitted to the following step in the candidate selection process which is likely a personal/phone interview, a test, or further review by one or more staff with greater seniority.

Getting shortlisted is a good thing.
