Time Saving Technical Recruiting Tips
An adequately staffed IT department and tech team is important to the continued success of your company, but there are only 24 hours in each day.
If your technical recruiting process is taking more time and resources than it should, the end result could cost you money (even if you wind up finding the perfect employee).
In no particular order, here are a few easy-to-implement tips for speedy, efficient technical recruiting.
Use Automation to Your Advantage
Even for technical recruiting professionals, dealing with multiple applicants at once can get repetitive. There are certain aspects of the process that require human insight and expertise, but there are others that simply involve going through the motions. Automating routine things like application confirmations, rejection notes, and calendar links for scheduling will free your team up to focus their energy on more productive pursuits.
Schedule Remote Skill Tests and Interviews
Automation isn’t the only technical recruiting innovation that can help speed things up. Video conferencing and screen sharing technologies like Zoom and Microsoft Teams have made it possible to conduct some (or all) of the interview process and pre-employment screening virtually. This will help you manage your time more efficiently. As an added bonus, applicants tend to appreciate this too.
Incorporate Technical Recruiting Tools
Did you know that there is AI technology that lets you screen candidates for relevancy based on specific keywords and other parameters? Or that, instead of manually submitting job descriptions to LinkedIn, Indeed, and other leading platforms, there are tools for submitting to multiple job boards with one click? Discover how innovative tech can help you complete your recruiting quicker.
Use Pre-Built Templates (or Create Your Own)
There is no Pulitzer Prize for job advertisements. Once you’ve found a way to clearly, concisely, and quickly communicate the requirements for one open position you can easily tweak the message to be used for another…and another…and another.
Why spend hours creating a unique job description from scratch when you can tweak a template in twenty minutes (or less)?
Of course, there’s another highly effective way to save time on technical recruiting – outsource the entire end-to-end process to the professionals. Call 303-946-3436 or reach out online to discover what the experts at Expect can do for you.
