First Stage of Recruitment

Discover Candidates with TurboHire

The First stage is candidate sourcing which deals with getting necessary candidates for the job vacancy. This stage can be subdivided into 2 further stages

  • Job approval to a job posting.
  • Job Posting to job screening.

I. Job Approval to Job Posting

Once the job vacancy is approved, the next step is to publicize the vacancy to attract the best candidates. The practice is to post this job on leading job boards in which will attract quality candidates. This is the first step taken by the recruiter/HR manager.

Current scenario

In the current scenario, the recruiter/HR manager needs to individually post a job on each job board. Across the world, there are two types of job boards, premium and free. Candidates’ favorites are Monster, Indeed which are the premium job boards. Free job boards are those which allow the recruiters to post the job at zero cost. Some of them are Facebook jobs and google jobs. The average time spent posting a job on job boards is almost 1.5 hr and the if recruiter needs to publish it on at least 4 job boards to attract more candidates. So, the total time spent will be 6hr.

II. Job Posting to Job Screening

After the job is posted on various job boards, candidates will start to apply for the jobs and the recruiters will get a flurry of candidate’s application from these job boards. However, we cannot start screening candidates unless we hit a threshold limit of resume. This stage involves the time between the instant we post the job and start screening candidates.

Current scenario

For the job posted by the recruiter let us assume that the threshold limit for starting screening procedure is 500 resumes. As the recruiter has posted jobs in 4 different job boards and if we are assuming that all these job boards are supplying 100 candidates per day then it takes 5 days to wait for five days. It must be noted that during this stage the recruiter time is being wasted as he cannot work on this recruitment process.

Job posting to job screening with TurboHire

In this intermediate stage between posting and screening, TurboHire provides value a great addition. TurboHire has a unique feature for promoting the same jobs on the social media platform. With this feature, the recruiter can at the time of posting of job, can promote jobs on social media websites like LinkedIn and WhatsApp. There is also an option to forward it to mail ids. This feature has been included because LinkedIn is a source of quality candidates and Instant messengers like WhatsApp and emails will help in targeting the right set of candidates faster. In addition to this feature, TurboHire has developed JustDropYourResume where the candidate needs not enter any details while submitting the resume other than his email for authentication. The above two features attract quality candidates faster. So, if job boards can attract 100 candidates per resume then instant messages like WhatsApp and sites like LinkedIn can attract at least twice the candidates

2. Candidate Screening on TurboHire

Second Stage of Recruitment

When the required threshold number of resumes is obtained the next step is to screen the candidates. This is the most important step in the recruitment process where the recruiter selects those candidates whom he/she feels deemed to be fit and rejects all the others. However, the point to consider here is the number of resumes to go through for the screening process and the fatigue on the recruiter.

Current scenario of Candidate Screening

The usual process is that the recruiter will collect all the CV into his database and opens each resume and reads through it to understand the candidate. On average, it takes 6 mins to go through a resume and to understand a candidate. So, if the recruiter must scan all these 500 Resumes it will take more time before he could comprehend whether he is fit or unfit. In addition to this, we need to consider the human element such as human error and fatigue due to reading these many resumes.
