The candidate experience is an area of your process that can be easily improved with technology, and it’s a place where the right tools can give you an edge over other employers.
A platform with a robust mobile app can be especially useful for applicants that are constantly on the go but still want to stay up-to-date on potential opportunities. Recruiting tech provides job boards of all kinds—online, mobile, or even video—allowing candidates to easily browse through and apply to jobs at their convenience.
The candidate experience isn’t just about keeping a job listing active and posting jobs on social media. It’s about making sure candidates see the value in applying for your open positions and understand what it would be like to work at your company.
Surveys have shown that candidates prefer to be informed about their status and progress in the recruitment journey. They involve emails, phone calls, and other forms of communication that are slow and inefficient; plus, it can take up hours and hours of a recruiter’s time – time that can be spent on other core tasks. Also, recruiters and hiring managers can’t always provide all the information that candidates need, whenever they need it, day or night, in order to make an informed decision about taking up an offer.
A better way? Automated hiring processes with an AI-powered ATS. Recruiting tech like ATS are not just for recruiters’ record keeping anymore. It is widely used to keep candidates happy during the recruitment process, and once they’re on board.
A poor candidate experience could deter people from applying for open positions and can even lead them away from working with your company altogether. A bad interview process or impersonal communication can turn off applicants and make them think twice about working with you; also, there are high chance that they might leave negative feedback which will be a deterrent in the future. This is where recruiting software can be leveraged to provide candidates with a stellar experience with personalized engagement.
