Have you ever made a cup of tea, only to forget to drink it? If so, you’re not alone. Sometimes the hustle and high-stress lifestyles can affect our memory. At the end of the day, there’s only so much that the human brain can retain.

With all the information we come across every day, we can forget important things. We see this happening often in many aspects of business. Especially recruitment!

Trying to win over top talent is no longer a piece of cake. Especially if you’ve got hundreds of resumes flooding into your inbox, outdated software from 2005, and no viable resources to work with. Add to this the daily dose of manual tasks that you’ve got on your plate. It’s just another recipe for disaster.

Luckily, it’s 2021 and we’ve got advanced hiring platforms that can do the heavy lifting for us.

How?

Here we explore five different ways a hiring platform can help you recruit the best of the best talent with AI and automation!

Helps you parse thousands of resumes fast

On average, every corporate job can attract anywhere near 250 applications per job. At one point or another, there’s always going to be an overflow of resumes slipping into the bottom of your inbox. And let’s face it, you can’t go cold turkey on resumes. Especially when your company is depending on you to hire star candidates.

On the bright side, a hiring platform can do the bulk of your recruitment, including resume parsing.

A hiring platform like EVA-REC can help you search and filter through an endless sea of resumes and narrow down candidates with ease. All you have to do is simply drag and drop these resumes, and the hiring platform will automatically create a profile for each candidate. You’ll then notice that all the candidates’ information will be immediately parsed from their resumes.

Moreover, you can search for resumes by using specific keywords and our hiring platform will immediately filter and show you the candidates that meet your requirements. And for the cherry on top, you can quickly match these resumes with pre-existing job posts or job descriptions that you have.

So with one simple drag-and-drop into EVA-REC, your offline candidate database becomes fully accessible, searchable, and shareable with your team. With no data entry required.

Enables you to amplify the candidate experience

Hiring and attracting great talent is already a competitive affair. Now add to that a lackluster candidate experience, and your challenge will turn into a full-blown roadblock. A Titanic iceberg.

A hiring platform ensures that your candidates are having a great time all throughout. Where they’ll most likely recommend your other vacancies to their network and have a few great things to say about your company.

But let’s back up a little bit. How can a hiring platform help you reach that wonderful stage?

It’s simple. A hiring platform starts influencing the candidate experience from the application process. It kicks off the process with a short application form, where candidates just need to fill in a few fields instead of endless pages. Also, most importantly, the entire experience is mobile-friendly and they don’t even need to refill their entire resumes from scratch.

Then, the hiring platform will help you automate emails that are personalized and warm. Through these emails, you’ll ensure that all candidates are well aware of the next steps. And nobody gets left out in the dark. This way, you’ll make candidates feel good about your company after they see how you’re treating them. Not only will you build up your reputation, but you’ll also win over top talent faster than the competition.

Reduces friction and humanizes the hiring process

Now that we’ve established how a hiring platform can polish the candidate experience…how can it humanize it as well? Studies have shown that candidates tend to rate their candidate experience higher when communication lines are open and transparent throughout the hiring process. A badly choreographed communication process can terribly dehumanize the hiring process. Especially when you depend too much on automation alone or rely too heavily on copy-paste email templates.

Let’s get this out of the way first: candidates don’t want to feel like they’re taking part in a cold or mechanical hiring process. Instead, you can use a hiring platform to write job descriptions that are accurate, bias-free, and relatable. For example, with EVA-REC, recruiters can simply provide the job title and the skills generator will automatically provide the required keywords for the job description. You can also edit the job description to your own liking.

At the end of the day, you don’t want to use standard templates that don’t have a friendly tone. Also, with a hiring platform, talent acquisition teams can constantly communicate and reach out to candidates throughout the process. With automated emails and messaging, candidates will always be kept in the loop in a timely manner. They’re instantly notified of their application status and are well aware of the next steps. So by keeping candidates informed, you won’t only enhance their experience, but you will also humanize the hiring process effortlessly.

Helps you improve the sourcing process

Every recruiter aspires to source and hire top candidates. And thankfully, job boards make that task easier. Fortunately, recruiters can now rely on a hiring platform like EVA-REC to save time and money and post their jobs on a global portfolio of 2,000+ job boards.

This makes cross-posting on different channels easy and hassle-free. So instead of logging in and out of each platform, you can alternatively attract the biggest audience from all around the world – with a single click.

Also, you can receive channel recommendations based on the job requirements. All you’ve got to do is simply select the region, channel type, job category, industry, and job title. Afterwards, you’ll instantly get a list of channels that meet your sourcing needs. This way, you’ll make sure that you’re targeting the most effective job boards for your job role, and attract the right talent with ease. And with a more focused approach, you’ll also reduce the administrative burden of manually searching for the best job boards.

Streamlines the entire process from start to finish

A hiring platform can remove the manual aspect of hiring, entirely. A wide range of different tasks can be automated and even scheduled for certain times or dates. For example, some hiring platforms enable you to improve time-to-hire through a self-scheduling interview tool. Where in seconds, recruiters can send self-schedule emails once candidates are moved from one stage to another. Which makes it easier for candidates to quickly book the times that work best for them – and you!

Also, a hiring platform automates a range of other functions such as job posting, communication, and pipelines. And most importantly, it streamlines collaboration between widespread teams. Helping them evaluate and rate candidates together and in real-time. This helps recruiters zip through the hiring process fast because communication and tasks are structured and organized in one place.

This level of automation also gives you an extra degree of control and allows you to turn your attention towards other high-level tasks such as holding in-depth interviews and reviewing the shortlist of candidates that you have.
