Let’s play pretend. Imagine being a recruiter of a large recruitment firm. You meet your client – a large, multinational corporation with businesses in several industries around the world. They set out their preferences for their candidates, the whole nine yards. From schools attended, to key skills, achievements, relevant experience, languages spoken, sports and hobbies, management skills, family background, and ethnicity to name a few. You have too much on your plate that all you could utter was a simple “Ok, I got it” and all you could do was nod. Wow, you really have your work cut out for you.
You need something to help you piece everything together. You need a systematic way to sort through all this chaos. From the very first step of the recruitment process, posting a job ad, you need a very efficient way to aid you through the entire cycle. Is there hope? Is there a way to put some order into this very challenging role?
Recruitment optimization is the answer. There are really no flowery words or poetic phrases to describe what a recruitment optimization software does. Simply put, it gets the job done. Moreover, it helps recruiters make the right decisions QUICKLY. This is more than just your ordinary recruitment software, where CV information is stored, hiring stages are logged, and interviews are automatically scheduled. Here’s what else a recruitment optimization software can do.
Social media integration. Everyone’s on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram! Everyone, including the best candidates, spend time online. So, these platforms can be a good way to verify information based on submitted CVs. Moreover, these social media accounts allow recruiters to know more about the candidate's – things that they would not discover had they settled for just the resume.
Real Time Reporting and Updates. Recruiters need access to updated, accurate information about candidates. Recruitment optimization software programs do just that, helping their users make informed decisions on hiring and selection.
Mobile integration. Recruiters are also part of the on-the-go generation. They should spend time outside, interacting with applicants and presenting proposals to clients. However, they cannot leave their work which is already in the supply chain. The mobile versions of these recruitment optimization software allow these recruiters to keep up with their jobs, without needing to stay in the office.
Now, let’s play pretend again. Imagine going through the same scenario above, but with the presence of a recruitment optimization software. Now, doesn’t that change everything? Work suddenly becomes manageable and achievable!
