Gain Maximum Access to Candidate Data: From Internet, Internal & External Sources

Nov 23, 2016

If you are in-charge of hiring, you face the challenge of sorting through a great deal of data to find all you can about top applicants. In fact, you will find several excellent sources providing tips on how to find the best candidates.

A number of these sources will refer you to professional recruiting agencies or other outsourced resources. Others will make the point that social media is now an essential part of the intelligence-gathering process.

Make-Do or Make it Happen

The reality is that these sources are effectively acknowledging that most companies are relying on antiquated ATS and fragmented recruiting processes. The need to turn to multiple sources for information on candidate’s leads to an inefficient and cumbersome approach to finding vetting the best possible hires.

This situation also often forces HR departments to rely on those expensive external agencies and services to aid in the process of finding and screening candidates. Unfortunately, even when potential hires are identified there is still no holistic way to match each candidate to the best possible position.

In simple terms, this antiquated approach does not utilize the capabilities of modern technology. The lack of front-end intelligence in the process severely limits the prospects of success. Thankfully, there is now a solution that does leap over those hurdles to effective recruitment and hiring.
