It is a well-known fact that a majority of candidates in the market are passive - i.e. they are not in active pursuit of a job switch. However, to maintain a healthy pipeline of talent, recruiters continually source passive candidates through various channels such as emails, social media and employee referrals. On the other hand, active candidates in the market who are looking to switch to a new role immediately apply via job boards, career sites, etc. All you need is an automated system to manage candidate sourcing through a single platform - Applicants from all sourcing channels will flow automatically into one system (the ATS), in which you can manage them.
When sifting through large volumes of resumes, recruiters typically spend a majority of their time looking for candidate details such as Name, years of experience, education and visa requirements to work in a particular country. These details could easily be scraped off resumes through an automated resume parsing system. This saves a lot of time for your recruitment teams and allows them to spend time speaking with the right candidates.
Recruiters and recruitment coordinators spend more than 50% of their time coordinating between candidates, interviewers, hiring managers, and other stakeholders. With an automated interview scheduling software, you can configure the communication to go out to all stakeholders when an interview is scheduled, cancelled or edited, automatically! Interview schedulers which integrate with your calendars, ensure that confirmed interviews are added directly to the calendars of all stakeholders.
Recruitment assessment tools are very useful in gauging a candidate’s ability to perform a specific task. Skill-based and psychometric assessment tools could be a recruiter’s best friend in surfacing good candidates from the rest. Choose an assessment test provider that integrates with your Applicant Tracking System(ATS). This way once a candidate completes their assessment, you will automatically be able to see their score in your ATS.
A candidate who is engaged throughout the hiring process is more likely to accept your offer and become part of your organisation. However, keeping every candidate engaged with customised emails takes up recruiters’ bandwidth. To combat this, automate transactional communication such as email reminders before a scheduled interview, sharing the map of your office location, triggering background checks, etc. This automation can be achieved using an ATS with automated candidate engagement capabilities. Recruiters can still spend time on 1:1 communication with candidates to get qualitative feedback on the interview process and more.
Background investigation is a crucial part of the hiring process that generally involves determining whether an applicant may be unqualified for a position due to a record of a criminal conviction, motor vehicle violations, poor credit history, or misrepresentation regarding education or work history. Completing a thorough background check while not hampering the candidate experience is important for all talent acquisition teams. Here is where automated background verification tools come in handy.
