The job market has seen its ups and downs over the past few years and so have job seekers. As we explored in a recent blog, job seekers face plenty of obstacles as they search for work. Oftentimes, HR reps and recruiters can make it more difficult for job seekers to overcome those obstacles. For example, posting a job description that does not accurately describe an open position can leave job seekers unsure as to whether they’re a good fit for the position.
Now I know what you’re thinking: It’s not that you’re deliberately trying to make it more difficult for job seekers, it’s just that you’re struggling to keep up with the demands of your job. So many responsibilities fall under the HR umbrella, it’s simply impossible to give 100 percent to every task without wearing yourself out.
They key is to work smarter, not harder. An applicant tracking solution (ATS) like Hyrell’s can streamline your hiring process, helping you find the right candidates quickly and giving you more time to remedy any ways in which you’re alienating job seekers.
Here are just a few ways Hyrell’s ATS can improve your hiring process and create a better applicant experience.
One Stop, One Application
Getting the word out about a job opening can be simple or it can be complicated. The norm is to send out job descriptions to several of the top job boards, but that takes time. And it’s valuable time wasted for HR managers who want to focus on reviewing, hiring and onboarding new employees.
With Hyrell, HR managers can automatically post job openings on local and national hiring sites like Craigslist, Simply Hired, Indeed and direct responses to an online portal. No copying and pasting, no logging into separate accounts—one stop and done.
Easily Identify Qualified Candidates Before the Interview
Job descriptions don’t always attract the proper candidates. Unless there are adequate filters on job sites, companies get a flood of resumes from people not necessarily qualified for a position. When that happens, HR is left to sift and sort through every job applicant in the pile.
Hyrell eliminates this added process by creating a series of preset questions to put gatekeeping systems in place for hopeful job applicants. Candidates can be weeded out prior to a job interview, minimizing pressure on HR and lessening the chance of overlooking a prime candidate by accident.
Automatically Notify Applicants When a Job Has Been Filled
Even before a position is filled, eager job applicants may hound, pester and downright bother HR about their applications. For HR, the time needed for follow up can be extensive (not to mention exhaustive).
Hyrell streamlines the communication process between your department and applicants. You can keep applicants informed and engaged from the moment they submit an application. When the position is filled, one click of a button sends notifications to all applicants, informing them the position is no longer available.
Hyrell is your ideal all-in-one recruiting software to help you address job seekers’ top pet peeves while streamlining your hiring process. To learn more about the Hyrell applicant tracking solution, schedule a consultation today!
