6 Tech Trends in Recruiting You Should Implement Right Away

The recent developments in technology are transforming the recruitment landscape in every area – from job advertising and candidate screening to hiring and onboarding. And as employers become more and more candidate-friendly, recruitment strategies are also evolving, giving a new direction to the recruitment process.

Here are 6 recruitment trends that are making things quick, easy, and efficient for recruiters
while ensuring a positive experience for candidates.

1. Marketing Platforms

Traditional marketing is already on its way out in a competitive job market. Keeping pace with HR tech is the only way to attract and engage elusive talent in today’s digital era. Recruitment marketing platforms integrate a variety of features for marketing job openings, engaging with prospective candidates, nurturing their interests, and encouraging them to apply. Many of these marketing platforms also integrate tools that help optimize employer brand on job boards and employer review sites, automate the marketing of job openings on social channels, a CRM system to stay connected with candidates and to facilitate employee referrals.

2. Video Interviews

The recruitment process is just like speed dating – both need intuition, aptitude, and patience and both result in more disappointments that successful hires. But, video interviews have improved the recruiting experience drastically for both the job seekers and the interviewers. Video interviews accelerate the screening process by facilitating interviews anytime, anywhere and make it much easier and faster to find the perfect match.

3. Artificial Intelligence

Time is an expensive resource for a busy recruiter who is already running a million miles in different directions searching for top industry talent. Not to mention the cost of a wrong hire. In recruiting, AI can be used to improve efficiency in resume sorting and parsing, optimizing pre-hire assessments, minimizing human bias, and in humanizing the onboarding experience.

4. Social Media Recruitment

Social media recruitment is a widely practiced recruitment strategy for building the talent pool. Through different social media platforms, recruiters are now establishing their brand identity, showcasing their company’s culture, promoting the perks of working with them, and highlighting all the aspects of their workplace to make it attractive for potential employees. Top choice candidates are always on the lookout for employers who offer new experiences, a flexible work environment, attractive perks and a dynamic culture. No wonder, recruiters are making the most of social media to create a buzz and to become a talent magnet!

5. Applicant Tracking System

Attracting top choice candidates who are consistently being approached by your competitors requires you to be quick, efficient, and candidate-centric. This is exactly where automating the recruitment process with an applicant tracking system helps. An ATS can automate the entire recruitment workflow from start to finish so recruiters stay focused on hiring the right fit.

6. Mobile-Responsive Apps

We are living in the era of “swipe right” and it is just as relevant in recruiting as it is dating. Mobile-friendly recruitment apps are luring job seekers with the best opportunities that match their preferences. So, recruiters who don’t want to miss out on top industry talent must adopt this recruitment trend and go mobile-friendly with their application. Recruiters are now tossing their tried and tested traditional recruitment process and embracing these recruitment trends for their endless possibilities.
