Why Startups need Recruitment software?

Every rapidly growing business needs recruitment software, especially in the post COVID, let’s-all-do-it-remote era. In the early days, many founders or co-founders underestimate the importance of having dedicated recruitment software, unlike CRM or helpdesk software.

Without recruitment software:

  • You can’t create experiences that chisel an attractive employer brand.

  • It will take 10X more effort to attract the right candidates.

  • Hiring may fall apart when teams decide to scale.

  • The worst of all: you will have no solid database of candidates, just old, dusty, dinosaur excels.

How should a startup evaluate recruitment software?

Everyone could use some help, a little extra if it’s the first time. So here it is, some questions to ask yourself as you evaluate recruitment software:

Will it solve your challenges?

Yes, all the hiring challenges staring you in the face - the ones you have now, may have in the next few quarters, and the ones that may be very specific to your firm. If you don’t have the time to evaluate, request a demo, shoot your use cases, and see what comes back.

Is it easy-to-use?

Or does it just claim to be easy-to-use? Try and test how easy the interface is for you and your teammates. Recruitment software is simple and should involve no learning curve. In addition, check out the knowledge base and see if you can navigate it.

Is it affordable?

Choose software that has straightforward pricing. It should have no hidden costs and require no algebra skills. Check all their plans and see if the software will stay affordable as you grow. If you are a company with less than 50 employees, you might even start off with a free version.
