How can recruiters navigate the changing landscape of the recruitment and overcome challenges in the hiring process? The article identifies six challenges that recruiters are likely to face in 2022. For each challenge, the article provides actionable strategies that recruiters can use to overcome them.
Can you name one of your biggest challenges in hiring?
Well, we are sure not one, but there must be many! Let us discuss them in detail. So, here are the top 5 recruitment challenges we keep hearing about and solutions to overcome to make recruiting more effective:
Challenge 1: “Candidates leave my site without filling out the form. What do I do?”
Chances are you have a lengthy process of form filling that leaves the candidate disinterested.
Solution: Ensure a positive candidate experience with AI-powered Resume Parser
Create a responsive career site/page by integrating advanced AI tools for recruitment, such as a CV parser API.
Ensure that the candidate does not leave your career page by removing redundant information and making form filling easy.
According to the 2020 Talent Board North America Candidate Experience Research report, about 25% of candidates reported a long recruiting process as one of the reasons for withdrawing.
How can an AI-based resume parser help in recruiting?
The manual approach to recruitment involves heaps of paperwork that can drain HR professionals and slow down the hiring process by volume.
Since their efforts are primarily invested in talent acquisition tasks, keeping the finest talent around becomes laborious. In this scenario, a resume parser takes much burden from the recruiter’s shoulders.
How can RChilli’s Resume Parser help with candidate experience?
It auto-fills data fields on your candidate apply page. The parser automatically populates the data fields once the candidate uploads the resume.
Extracts candidate data from resumes in 140+ data fields through REST API
It analyzes resumes created in any document format, such as DOC, DOCX, PDF, RTF, TXT, ODT, HTM and HTML, DOCM, DOTM, DOT, DOTX
Therefore, recruiters should consider boosting their hiring process by implementing an advanced AI-based resume parser for ATS to ensure a smooth flow of information and help them eliminate several extra costs linked with recruitment.
Challenge 2: “The candidate was selected for a job position but didn't join. Do I have to start the candidate screening process again?”
Ask yourself, “Would it be wise to go through heaps of resumes again?” Well, indeed, NO.
Solution: Simplify the recruitment process with Search and Match Engine
Simplifying recruitment is becoming crucial daily to decrease the workload of HR/recruiters.
With the search and match engine, you can search and match candidates and jobs with great relevancy and accuracy.
How does Search & Match Engine help?
Search & Match Engine speeds up the hiring process with similar resumes and matching job recommendations. It provides:
Resume to Jobs- It brings more job recommendations to the candidate.
Job to Jobs- It brings similar job recommendations matching a specific job position.
Job to Resumes- It brings more candidate recommendations for a job position.
Resume to Resumes- It brings similar candidate recommendations matching a particular resume.
Challenge 3: “I am losing out on quality resumes because I don’t have sufficient keywords to search for them.”
Let’s give you an example; searching with the keyword “Sales Executive” may provide relevant candidate results. But some candidates may have this keyword in their resume but have the same experience as a sales executive. What now? You may lose out on the best candidates due to your software limitation.
Solution: Invest in ready-to-use Skills and Job Profile taxonomy
You can enhance the user experience by showing recommended skills/job titles to the candidate/recruiter while searching.
For example, offer alias for the job profile ‘Sales Executive’ such as Field sales executive, Sales Representative, Sales Consultant, Sales Agent, Direct Salesperson. The users can use these aliases and broaden their keyword search to find the right fit.

Challenge 4: “How do I migrate data from an old ATS to a new ATS?”
