Informed Candidates Make the Best Candidates – Here’s How to Become One

May 21st, 2019

When employers want to hire top talent, they are looking for an informed candidate. An informed candidate does more than just basic research on the company and job description. This candidate has also engaged in the company already so they will be more comfortable to fit in with the company culture and complete onboarding faster.

3 Ways to Become an Informed Job Candidate

To stand out as top talent and be a desirable informed candidate, do these three things.

Dig into the Job Description & Responsibilities

Go beyond just glancing over the job description to quickly determine if it matches your skills. Dig into every part of the description and responsibilities. This will help you tailor your resume, as well as give you plenty of engaging talking points during the interview.

Learn About the Company

An informed candidate is recognizable when they know more about the company than just the basic information. You should know the purpose of the company, its vision, history, and any current news or information.

Utilize the company website, social media profiles, and internet search to help you become thoroughly informed to impress your interviewers.

Look into the Background of the Hiring Manager

As best as you can, try to learn about the background of the hiring manager. Don’t be shy about looking up the person on LinkedIn and other sites. This will help you ask pointed questions during your interview that can both be beneficial to the knowledge you’d like to gain, as well as demonstrate that you are interested in the position and informed.

Why Being Informed is Beneficial to YOU

Being an informed candidate definitely helps you stand apart from the competition and may increase your chances of receiving a job offer, but it’s also beneficial for you. By going the extra steps in conducting thorough research and preparing for the interview, you can make a better decision about whether you want to accept or reject a job offer.

3 Ways a Chatbot Drives Leads for Your Recruiters

May 8th, 2019

Recruiting has evolved to meet the demands of the constantly changing industry since its inception. When a roadblock or issue arises, the industry has been able to find a new way to solve problems and continue to effectively recruit the best candidate for the company’s open positions.

One of the more recent developments in the recruiting field is the use of chatbots. Financial constraints, increasing expectations, and a highly competitive market were just a few of the reasons that it was time to find another solution to aid in effective recruiting. Chatbots are a solution with considering, especially with the improvements to technology and the use of artificial intelligence.

3 Ways a Chatbot Can Help Recruiting

More specifically, a chatbot can help to fix some of the key issues that recruiters face today. Here are a few ways that the use of chatbots can drive quality leads to your recruiters, making their job more efficient, which will ultimately keep the company running smoothly and successfully.

Answers Questions Right Away

While searching for the right job, candidates often have several questions about the organization. Instead of having to navigate to the FAQ page, in the hopes that their specific question appears on the list, a chatbot can help. A visitor can ask any question and either the chatbot provides the correct answer, or can suggest the contact information of a person at the organization who can answer the question. This approach helps to create a small relationship and positive experience with possible candidate immediately.

The chatbot can and should be connected to a system that tracks the information that people are interested in the most. Not only can this provide valuable insight as to what candidates want, but it can also help you edit your website to make it more user-friendly.

Active 24/7 – delivers leads to their inbox

While your recruiters get to work on their other responsibilities, the chatbots are actively working 24 hours per day and seven days per week – collecting information and fielding questions. This means that instead of having to search for leads, they are being delivered straight to your inbox. Obviously, this is a huge time-saver.

Along the lines of data collection, the chatbot can also filter the leads based on keywords and sort candidates based on the skills or attributes they asked about.

Aids in Positive Candidate Experience

When a job seeker is able to be in communication with a company, especially in a timely fashion, this aids in a positive candidate experience. This positive experience can sway a candidate to work for you, even with other job offers on the table.
