1. Delayed Candidate Pre-Screening & Sourcing
In today’s competitive world, the biggest barrier to hiring diverse talent lies in the sourcing and pre-screening process. Yet, only 20% of companies leverage recruiting automation to optimize their candidate search. With the current state of the job market, many internal recruitment teams follow manual tasks of scanning 200-300 resumes per job role and fail to focus on important tasks like negotiation and onboarding, leading to low employee retention, high opportunity loss and hiring cost.
Solution: OptimHire’s Automated Pre-Screening & Sourcing Model
OptimHire’s Automated Pre-Screening & Sourcing model (APSS) is a PROVEN step-by-step process where we’ll do all the HARD WORK of pre-screening & sourcing talent as per your requirements, and you’ll pay just 3% fees for the pre-screened and matching candidates. This way, you can HIRE top talent 20x faster without paying anything extra.
2. Streamline Your Job Descriptions
During the hiring process, the significance of the job description is frequently underestimated. It’s not solely about conveying information regarding the available position; its primary role is to draw in suitable candidates and establish accurate expectations about the role, the organization, and the work culture. Long-winded and vague job descriptions can be a major turn-off for potential candidates, leading to misalignment between your expectations and theirs and delaying the hiring process as you sift through resumes that aren’t the right fit.
Solution: It’s time to Leverage OptimHire’s Unlimited Job Postings
OptimHire allows you to post unlimited job postings for various job positions for free. Remember, less is often more when it comes to job postings!
- Write short, crisp and to-the-point descriptions that clearly outline career planning, training exercises, and job requirements.
- Customize your job description by adding location, time zone, documents or images related to the company or job position to make it more resourceful for the candidates.
- Highlight the key responsibilities, job titles, skills required, and qualifications to avoid any further confusion.
- Avoid using any unnecessary jargon
3. Utilize an Applicant Tracking System (ATS)
A swift and hassle-free recruitment process holds equal significance for job seekers as it does for employers. In fact, as per a study by the Talent Board, 17% of candidates who had a negative encounter with a company’s hiring procedure, primarily because of the prolonged duration, decided to withdraw their applications and seek opportunities with rival organizations. So, if you’re still manually sifting through piles of resumes, it’s time to upgrade.
Solution: Try OptimHire’s AI-powered ATS (worth $10,000/per year)
Using OptimHire robust ATS, you can source exceptional tech talent for a job position, schedule coding tests and interviews in a few clicks, manage a candidate’s information and performance status in a separate client’s dashboard, and more efficiently.
With features such as a quick apply button, custom filters, LIVE updates, and instant chat, you can streamline your recruitment workflow, automate tedious administrative tasks, and gain complete control over your hiring process. So, it’s time you invest in the right ATS and watch your hiring process become more efficient.
4. Leverage Referrals or Connections
For both HR and Tech departments, the difficulty of recruiting top talent has become complicated, expensive, and slow.
