Speed Dating For Job Hunters

According to hellotalent.com, job searching has become fast-paced and some companies (i.e., Shapr and Jobr) have adopted a technique similar to speed dating. A la Tinder or Bumble, positions will appear in a queue and you’ll swipe left or right to show interest. This allows for a more surface-level view of tons more positions than sifting for hours through ZipRecruiter or Indeed.

With these sites, you also have the option to take a moment and review whatever details are provided for the roles (because we love substance, don’t we?).

As we continue to focus on user experience and candidate/hiring manager convenience, I’m sure we’ll be seeing more developers creating apps like this.

Here’s to the age of technology!

Maintaining The Talent Pool

Today’s recruiting tip is one that’s been around for ages! Still, it never hurts to revisit the basics.

When it comes to fulfilling different roles for our customers, it’s always easier when we know who’d be a good fit and would also be interested. TalentLyft refers to this methodology as maintaining a ‘talent pool.’ In this instance, the talent pool simply refers to “a place or database where recruiters and HR managers keep all of their top job candidates.”

The idea is definitely simple but also extremely effective. No matter how you’re introduced to the candidates, be they direct applicants, or outwardly sourced, having a directory with people in mind makes it much faster and far easier to match candidates with jobs that interest them and benefit the end client.
