Eliminate the Black Hole of Hiring


Lots of applicants apply to your job openings.  Unfortunately, if you don’t have a system in place, every applicant probably doesn’t always receive a final decision or status update in a timely manner (if at all). These unanswered applicants fall into the dreaded black hole of hiring.

Most companies want to update every job applicant as he or she moves through the hiring process (selected/not selected, status updates, etc.). Unfortunately, few companies are able to close the loop with all applicants, all of the time.  

Why?  It can take up too much of your valuable workday.  Calls.  Emails.  Voicemails.  On top of that, statistically, the final update can’t be favorable for the vast majority of applicants.  And the list keeps growing!  Not many people enjoy giving an applicant the message, “Unfortunately we are going in a different direction…”  

If an applicant was willing to spend the time applying to a job, he or she probably expects some sort of update or final decision.  This is even more probable in today’s social, open world.

Luckily, if you don’t have time to update each applicant, we've created a simple, effective and personal method to update each applicant through every step of the hiring process, often with only two clicks.  The Hyrell System can automatically log every action, with every applicant, for you.    

You can update an applicant one at a time, or in batches.  Good news or bad news, it closes the loop with each applicant.  Even if they don’t get the job, the odds have been increased that the applicant will respect your organization for having the courtesy to provide an update.  It’s good business and good karma.

No more telephone tag.  No more copy and paste emails.  No more snail mail or postcards.  No more overwhelming stacks of unanswered applicants.

Let the Hyrell Online Hiring System give you your time back.  Update your applicants easily and efficiently and eliminate the black hole!
