Are you looking to find top candidates and recruit them for your team?

But there’s probably one thing holding you back: the mass number of CVs overflowing in your inbox, file cabinet, and desktop.

So is there a secret, magical way to find top candidates quickly?

The short answer: yes.

Getting hundreds – or thousands – of resumes can be both a nightmare and a blessing in disguise. On the one hand, you’re glad that many candidates are applying to your open vacancies, and on the other, you don’t know how you’re going to sift through all the CVs in less time.

So if you’re receiving tens of thousands of CVs, learning how to find top candidates effectively and efficiently is crucially important.

And if you’re not sure where to start, don’t worry.


Our award-winning hiring platform is designed to help you hire and find top candidates in a fraction of time through AI and cutting-edge technology.

Let’s explore how!

Filter and parse a mass number of resumes fast

It goes without saying that filtering and parsing a mass number of resumes is one of the most daunting tasks for any recruiter. With outdated recruitment, recruiters have to go through large chunks of information and manually update excel sheets that derail their recruitment efforts.

But hiring platforms have changed the ballgame altogether. A hiring platform like EVA-REC takes the pain out of parsing resumes and helps you sort and filter your resume database in one click. Within seconds, our hiring platform helps you scan and parse all CVs based on the job description and your company’s specific requirements.

For example, on average, every job vacancy can attract around 250 applications per job. So if you’ve got 4 or 5 job vacancies, we’re talking about thousands of CVs that are slipping into the bottom of your inbox.

Our AI-powered hiring platform helps you turn your offline database into an online and searchable one. Where you can seamlessly search and filter through an endless sea of resumes and find top candidates with ease. By simply dragging and dropping a large number of CVs, EVA-REC will automatically create a profile for each candidate.

And if you’re looking for a candidate with specific skill sets or experience, you can search for them by using specific keywords related to the job title, career level, country, industry, major, or skills.

Afterward, EVA-REC will instantly filter through the CVs and show you at a glance the candidates that meet your requirements! So with one simple drag-and-drop, EVA-REC can turn your offline database into one that is fully accessible, searchable, and shareable with your team. With no data entry required!

Apply weights to the criteria most important to you

It’s easy to miss out on top talent if you’re still relying on outdated software, Excel sheets, or notepads to filter through a mass number of CVs.

In the midst of today’s talent crunch, you need to move fast if you want to recruit and find top candidates for your company. Which means, you need to filter through your candidates based on the criteria that matter the most to you.

For example, our AI hiring platform, EVA-REC, enables recruiters to seamlessly zip through the hiring process fast and find top candidates for the job based on their skills, experience, know-how, and job requirements. Meaning, recruiters can allocate weights to the criteria most important to them. The criteria can be related to location, skills, experience, willingness to travel, industry – and much more. For example, let’s say a recruiter is looking for a Content Writer. They might apply more weight to the experience criteria than the willingness to travel criteria.

After the recruiter allocates weights to each criterion, EVA-REC will filter through the candidates and help recruiters find top candidates for the role.

This will help recruiters reduce the cost per screening by 80%, save up to 17 hours per hire, and improve the quality of hire by 85%.

Match candidates to the right jobs in one click

When dealing with a mass number of resumes, you might wish you were able to magically and automatically discover top talent who seamlessly match your open roles.

We’re here to tell you that it’s completely possible with our all-in-one hiring platform!

Our hiring platform can help you find top candidates through incredible AI technology that matches candidates to open vacancies in one single click. It doesn’t matter what job you’re hiring for, the AI will find the best matching candidates for every job. Our matching algorithm will help you find top candidates in your database fast and save more than 90% of your valuable time and money.

So for example, after parsing the CVs, you can proceed by matching candidates to pre-existing job posts that you have. You can even match the CVs with any specific job description that you don’t want to publish yet. Just attach the job description of your choice and match it to the best candidates in seconds.

Then, a matching percentage will then appear next to each candidate’s profile. This matching percentage signifies how well the candidate’s profile matches the job requirements. Therefore, helping you spot and find top candidates at a glance.

Automatically rank candidates in order of qualification

Relying on gut feeling is something that occurs a lot in the world of HR. Sometimes recruiters just get this strong instinct that tells them “This is the candidate!”

But is your awesome on-paper candidate, awesome in reality too?

Unfortunately, our gut feelings can disappoint us. Especially when we end up making the wrong hire.
For every position, you might dwindle down your shortlist to a couple of qualified candidates. But from that point – how do you know which one to choose?

The answer is simple. Our hiring platform can help you select and choose the star candidate for the job – by ranking all candidates in order of qualification. This ranking is all based on how the candidates meet your defined criteria. It also gives you an at-a-glance view of who is the closest match to the job vacancy. So how does this ranking feature help you? It enables you to instantly find top candidates and invite them in for a final interview – or send the job offer.

This will save you a whole lot of time because you won’t have to interview every single candidate in your pipeline. Instead, you can spend more time with the qualified ones that are more suitable fits for the position.

Collaborate together as a team – in one place

In the past, recruitment was traditionally more of a top-down process. Where HR managers were the ultimate decision-makers. However, in the past few years, recruitment has incredibly evolved into a more collaborative approach. In fact, collaborative hiring is one of the hottest trends in recruitment right now.

Nowadays, recruiting is a team sport. It takes more than one teammate to help make the hiring process more seamless and smooth-sailing. This means that if you want to find top candidates, you’ll need the support of your teammates, HR manager, executives, or other departments at one stage or another.

Luckily, our hiring platform EVA-REC can help with that!

Our hiring platform helps your hiring team easily collaborate and make better decisions together. Where teammates can collaborate and communicate in real-time, and eliminate the endless back-and-forth emails. Gone are the days when teammates have to wait for days to solicit feedback or get approvals from managers. Now, with a hiring platform, you can communicate with teammates in one place to rate, evaluate, discuss, and decide on which candidates to move forward with.

Through EVA-REC, teammates will be assigned different tasks and given specific permissions throughout the hiring process. Recruiting teams can even collaborate with marketing teams, sales teams, developers, and more – even when everyone is working remotely. This brings team collaboration into one place, centralizes communication, and helps you find top candidates faster and easier than ever before.
