April 01, 2021 by Snehil Sharma
International Recruiters Day is celebrated to recognize the skills, dedication, and professionalism of recruiters worldwide. Every day, HR professionals work hard to ensure that their organization finds the right fit. At RChilli, we have decided to dedicate the month of April to the hard work of recruiters.
Let's jump into the life of recruiters and find out their challenges and how technology can help them solve them.
What Makes Recruitment Challenging?
Posting JD and believing that it will be filled automatically is now a thing of the past. In today's era, recruiters are expected to actively participate in the process rather than just writing a JD. This is all because of the ever-changing need for a job market that ultimately puts talented candidates at the top of the equation.
All this has created an atmosphere of intense competition. If recruiters want to grow, they have to adopt innovative strategies to attract the right talent.
A Few Top Challenges Recruiters Face While Hiring
Sourcing the Perfect Talent
Finding the top talent for the job at hand is no easy feat! But the challenge lies in finding enough quality candidates. How can technology help recruiters to find the solution for this?
Solution: Building a strong employer brand through social media platforms will help recruiters source candidates. This will enable recruiters to start building the demand for the top talent instead of chasing them. Another great solution is to create an effective employee referral program. Through referral programs, word of mouth plays a huge role in finding the right fit for the job.
Engaging Qualified Candidates
In a candidate-driven market, it isn't easy to find the right candidate. Once you find qualified candidates, it isn't easy to hold onto them. This is because the top talents have multiple offers at once.
Solution: Plan your recruitment intelligently, right from the initial conversation to interviews, and pleasant for the applicants. When applicants have to choose from multiple offers, the interview process is often a vital deciding factor. When scheduling numerous rounds of interviews with the potential candidate, ensure to stay in touch with them. This will induce the trust and interest of the candidate in your job offer.
The Pressure to Fill Open Positions
Vacant jobs in the organization cost money and delay operations. So, there is always pressure for hiring teams to hire as fast as possible. Yet, depending on candidates' manual screening, it can take several months to close the job position.
Solution: Hiring should not be done hastily. Use AI tools like RChilli resume parser extracts candidate data from resumes in 140+ data fields through REST API. It also analyzes resumes created in any document format, such as doc, Docx, HTML, pdf, RTF. You can always screen for top-quality talent and be ready to close the job quickly.
