How to effectively leverage past applicants

How to effectively leverage past applicants

One of the biggest untapped sources of candidates that many organizations miss is their own past applicants. This is because legacy recruiting systems were never designed to search past applicants. As a result, most recruiters don’t bother to search it. This means many miss a potential goldmine of free, qualified candidates they could contact.

Social Recruiting vs Sourcing

Posted by Nin Sandhu

I recently came across a article titled My Plea to Retire the Term #SocialRecruiting by Jeremy Roberts, and I couldn't agree more. It’s time we all decided that “Social Recruiting” simply is a part of the basic sourcing and recruiting process. Here are my reasons why:

Recruiting Technology News: Measuring Recruiting Performance

Posted by JamesT

Every day we at Talemetry collect data for hundreds of thousands of candidate application experiences, job posting spend and performance, career site and social media traffic, and more. However, as with any data, the real question that needs answering is 'what are you going to do differently as a result of the data'? If you are just gathering it because you are interested, or just think you should, you likely aren't going to get the most of your recruiting analytics.

Creating a Careers Microsite That Really Works

Posted by JamesT

Companies usually have a good handle on targeted marketing -- they build landing pages that are personalized, relevant, and accessible. Why, then, don’t companies build career microsites the same way?

When we work with our customers we see they often end up with expensive, unwieldy microsites that offer little more than a complex application form that good candidates often find uninspiring. The sites aren’t targeted to the role, geography, skill set, or target market. And they usually provide little information about drop-off rates, how many people are viewing the microsite, where they came from and what kind of candidates they are. As a result, the candidate experience remains one of the biggest problems in recruiting today.

Posted by JamesT

Filling the pipeline with high quality talent is today’s priority for Fortune 50 companies, staffing firms, and mid-size businesses.

Transform Company Culture Into A Competitive Advantage With Social Media

Company culture is a lot like meetings and memos: it’s an inescapable, and inevitable, part of the employee (and candidate) experience. But with the rise of social media, virtual employees and global teams, new business paradigms mean that when it comes to communicating culture and developing an authentic and resonant employer brand, it’s anything but business as usual.
