As recruiting becomes a more well respected and integral part of the corporate structure, new technology is emerging to help source and hire talent in a variety of industries. Far from replacing recruitment jobs, these technical solutions are freeing up HR professionals to focus on tasks that can’t be done by computers, including interviewing and candidate research.

1. Job Advertisement Placement

One of the areas where companies waste the most money is in placement for job advertisements. The fact of the matter is, not every job is equal and trying to find one kind of job in a place suited for another is a good way of spending money you don’t need to.

Fortunately, new automation solutions have gotten good at not only improving the quality of job postings, but also placing them in the arenas that they will be the most effective. High quality products like Talentify can even gather data on where the best candidates for your positions are coming from and adjust spend in order to take advantage of those media.

 

2. Candidate Pre-Screening

When a candidate isn’t qualified for a position, it can waste both your time and theirs. Sometimes the way a job posting is written implies that the position is something that it’s not, causing people to apply who would otherwise pass it up. This creates more work for recruiters that have to then filter through these candidates.

Recruitment automation can help prevent this by generating pre-screening questions that will help determine whether a candidate is really a good fit for a particular job. This not only will reduce the number of unqualified applicants (and therefore the people who will need to be manually looked at and rejected), but will also allow job seekers to spend their time more effectively and find a job suited to their particular talents.

3. Candidate Nurturing

The longer it takes to respond to a candidate, the more likely that candidate will find a position with some other company. If you’re looking for top talent, you must expect that others are also doing the same. That’s why it’s important to keep a regular line of contact open between you and the candidate.

Automation can help with this by ensuring regular emails to update on the hiring process, provide interesting information that indicate a personal interest in the candidate, and remind them about things like scheduled interviews or assessments. These simple tools can go a long way to ensure that a candidate doesn’t lose interest and will not accept another offer while you’re still trying to get their hiring approved.

These are only a handful of ways that a strong automation platform can make sourcing and hiring easier and allow recruiters to focus on other aspects of their jobs. If you have any further ideas or questions, don’t hesitate to leave them in the comments below.
