5 ways recruitment automation has changed recruiting process forever
Getting tasks done is one of the main benefits of recruitment automation, however, this is not the only benefit that is being added to your list. Here are some of the other 5 ways through which the entire hiring game is being changed forever.
1. Job promotion and advertising:
Initially, job advertising and promotion used to be more of manual work than an automated process. In this manual work, recruiters would have had to go through each site while uploading the JDs and setting them up. It is hence considered to be one of the best advantages of recruitment automation.
Finding great candidates and getting them on board is one of the crucial tasks that not only consumes time but also requires a detailed attention span of the recruiters. According to a survey by LinkedIn, about 85% of the global workforce comprises passive candidates. Finding them out and reaching out to them can be a pain for recruiters. Recruitment automation software hence enriches this experience by collaborating with various job boards which makes reaching out to candidates easier.
3. Applicant tracking and screening:
Once you get in touch with the candidate, the next step is to go through each detail which can also be called the screening of candidates. If no proper support for technology is acquired, this process becomes quite a burden to both recruiters and the candidates. This can, however, be overcome by the usage of ATS also called the Applicant tracking system which also the recruiters to follow every single tracking need in a single place. Also, don’t forget to hit that free ATS button provided by TurboHire which will help you get a good hold of how to work with it.
4. Interview Scheduling:
Manually scheduling interviews may lead to a lot of confusion like overlapping of timeframes between candidates to even candidates not being available at a specific time, however with automated calendars being a part of the recruitment automation tools, recruiters can allow candidates to schedule their interview in their own convenient time which allows both the recruiter and the candidate to get a better interview process.
5. Data and hiring metrics:
Data and hiring metrics help the recruiters to keep a track of all the work related to hiring a candidate right from candidate details to resume to background details being stored in a single place. Managing this huge data on your computer is not just difficult but might also face some security issues. To make sure such a huge amount of data stays maintained, recruitment automation can help. Here recruiters can upload the data directly over the cloud and save a lot of space in the system. There will also be a higher amount of security and missing the data will also never occur.
3 best tools for recruitment automation
With an abundance of automation tools, recruiters are dizzy as to which tools they need to use and what will help them. Hence to clear out this confusion here are the 3 best tools for recruitment automation that can be used for ease of hiring processes.
1. Resume Parser:
Resume Parser is not just a tool, but it is a life-saver! How? Well, a resume parser does not only let you filter through the relevant resumes based on your choices but will also allow you to check out the tiniest of details of a candidate which might have otherwise been left unread. This is what makes the resume parser one of the best tools that recruiters need to use in their daily recruitment process.
Resume Parser is also one of the tools that help in candidate screening efficiently. Here are three main reasons why resume parser remains the best:
- Manual screening of resume is still one of the most time-consuming sections of a hiring procedure
- Up to 88% of the resumes that are received are considered to be underqualified
- A recruiter tends to spend about 23 hours screening resumes for just a single hire. This means for multiple openings it might take more than a week or even a month.
2. Automated Interview Scheduler:
Interviews are a part of the pre-screening process and it needs more than just the timeframe of the interviewer to be free. Here both the interviewer and the candidate need to agree mutually to be a part of the interview. This can however only come true if they have equally set timings which is not possible when scheduled manually.
It is hence easier to utilize the automated interview scheduler which will not only allow the candidates to schedule their interviews but will also provide a constant reminder regarding the upcoming interviews. This allows for a smoother hiring process. According to CareerBuilder’s data, it is found that about 67% of job seekers have a positive impression of the company if consistent updates are provided throughout the application process.
3. Candidate onboarding tools:
While candidate screening and interviewing are some of the important starting points, onboarding a candidate is also one of the most important when it comes to the actual start of a candidate’s work life. This needs to be handled with utmost care as this is where the exact experience of a candidate comes to an end. If this experience is positive only then will the company benefit in its hiring process and its overall brand image. TurboHire with its candidate onboarding tools provides a wide variety of ways to ensure there is a smooth onboarding process being carried out.
