In this highly competitive market, staying ahead of the competition is vital. Therefore, any systems or processes that help automate your candidate management and engagement will be worth their weight in gold. There’s also the added benefit of reviewing your recruiting methods and seeing at a glance, which method is giving you the best results, not just by quantity of applications, but the quality too.
Internet based recruiting systems are changing the face of internal recruiting and are an example of another recruiters’ tool being adopted by the end user.
1. Quick and easy implementation
2. Access from any device, anywhere
This means that if you want to, you can engage in almost immediate conversations with candidates. Imagine, you’ve received an application during the evening from what looks like a superstar candidate. If you leave it until the morning, you may find it very difficult to get hold of them due to current work commitments. They may have applied to your competitor at the same time and may have already had a call and committed to an interview. With web based recruitment software, the power really is in your hands and you can choose to respond as quickly as you like.
3. Save time and improve productivity
Stop searching through your In Box for that great CV that you know you saw last week – with an ATS (applicant tracking system) all your applications are in one place.
No need to try and remember if you’ve seen the CV before and if you did, what happened? – by advertising and managing applications in the software, you have all the CV’s in one place and can even see if they have been reviewed and the outcome. Options to add notes against a candidate record also helps if you receive the CV more than once, or if someone applies again in the future, you can see their entire application footprint at a glance.
4. Improve and automate your candidate journey
One of the biggest frustrations of candidates is the lack of communication following an application. With the advances in automation, there really are no more excuses to not do this. Online shopping has changed the way we expect to be communicated with and an online job application isn’t any different. With an ATS, you can create your own bespoke candidate journey and automate the communication as much or as little as you like.
You can send automated emails to thank candidates for their interest, maybe direct them to your careers page, ask them to follow you on social media, or anything else that will help keep them engaged whilst you review their application.
5. Manage campaigns and monitor performance
