 Scheduling Savings:

A big recruiting time killer can be scheduling your candidates for informational and on-site interviews, coaching and other needs. The right recruiting tools are vital to keep you on top of your pipeline and source, hire, and onboard the right candidates quickly. Spend your energy where it is needed most: sourcing and placing your candidates. An ATS like Jobvite can have a profound impact on your team’s performance. This webinar has some smart tips on how to stay on top of your schedule and free up your time for more high value tasks. One expert panelist’s advice: Don’t fear AI, instead let it streamline your team’s process and reduce overall stress!

 Specialized Search Tools:

Another panelist wished for a blanket search recruiting tool to track a candidate’s digital footprint, populate resumes, gather information from a variety of job sites the candidate is on, as well as provide relevant contact information. Not everyone is on LinkedIn, and sometimes in order to find a hard-to-source candidate, you need to “off-road” and be more creative. The panelists explore one sourcing tool that does this, pulling portfolios, resumes, conferences attended, speaking engagements etc., and aggregates the data as it helps to locate hard-to-find candidates. It can also potentially provide current candidate social media information, not simply their work contact info. Watch to learn about additional features.

But you don’t have to stop there. Everyone could use all the sourcing help they can get. That’s where Checkster’s Reference Insights tool comes in particularly handy. Not only can you check references faster than ever, you can build a high quality sourcing database with no extra effort. Checkster allows for an opt in from candidates' references to hear more about future job opportunities at your company. Quality candidates tend to attract quality references who are very strong potential candidates of the future. And with an average of 80% of references opting in, you’ll build a large, quality passive sourcing database in no time. 

Robust Reporting:

Another panelist discussed the difficulty in massaging raw data, and wanted more streamlined ways to pull and build attrition, sourcing, and time-to-hire reports, and also enjoy a seamless connection between reporting tools and an ATS. Oftentimes recruiting coordinators spend too much time entering in candidate data, but if there was stronger integration between systems, their time could be spent on more important tasks.

And without a key word search within an ATS, it’s very difficult and time-consuming to sort through 1000’s of resumes to find suitable candidates for an open rec. Are there enhanced ATS’s that are better suited to tackle this problem? Find out!

 Tools that Are Worth it:

Out of all the recruiting tools available, which ones are actually worth it? When does it make sense to change platforms or stay with what you have? Do you invest in a headcount of new recruiting coordinators or instead use those resources to invest in a new system?  Greenhouse ATS integrates well with G Suite and Google calendar, but for large panel interviews, one panelist found that Good Time, an automated scheduling software, was much more efficient at tracking new interviewers and number of interviews per week. By speeding up that process, you can increase your close rate and save precious time for higher value tasks, as well as provide an elevated experience for your candidate-which is always important. In addition, this kind of tool gives your team the gift of time.

Tool for Automating Reference Checks

One slam-dunk tool that’s more than worth it is Checkster’s Reference Insights Tool. If you haven’t already automated your reference check process (or somehow haven’t realized the gravity and value of quality reference checks), now is your chance to catch up. With Reference Insights, you can start a reference check on a candidate in less than two minutes, and allow your candidate to self-manage their request queue. You’ll save more than an hour per reference check, candidates love the easy-to-navigate digital experience, and you’ll get more reference feedback faster than ever before. Even better, Checkster integrates with your favorite ATS for streamlined processes from start to finish.
