Recruiting has changed dramatically in recent years. Yet, at its core, it remains the same: about relationships. There are many tools, though, that can make the process of forging relationships easier, so you find the right-fit candidates for your company. Some different tech tools to keep in mind as you’re recruiting include:
What is the Role of Technology in New Age Recruiting?
Optimizing your career site for devices.
Most people look for jobs on their phones or other devices. If your career website or application process is cumbersome and not optimized, it’s going to prevent top talent from applying. Your mobile recruitment strategy should also include the use of job boards on sites like LinkedIn, Glassdoor, and ZipRecruiter.
Using video interviews.
With today’s technology, it’s easier than ever to hire workers from all over the country or even the world. Interviewing them, however, can be a challenge in person. That’s where video interviews can help.
Whatever platform you use, make video interviews a part of your recruiting process so you don’t limit the applicants that apply. You’ll also be able to schedule more interviews and use your time more efficiently with video technology.
Put the power of chatbots to use.
More and more companies are using chatbots on their websites. Use chatbots when recruiting to have a natural conversation with potential candidates about the type of job they’re looking for. Chatbots should also be able to answer basic questions about the company and role to keep candidates engaged. You can even choose whether you want a chatbot to automatically appear when a candidate lands on your career page, or if they click the Chatbox button.
Tap automated recruitment marketing.
With so many channels and mediums to consider, recruiting in today’s digital age can get overwhelming. However, when you use the automated recruitment market, you’re basically focusing on those candidates who are the best fit for your job and your culture. It can also help you to find those passive candidates who are still employed, but open to a new opportunity.
