Technology is continuously streamlining almost all business operations and in the recruiting process as well.
The legacy recruitment system encompasses sourcing applicants from limited sources, manual documents, sorting, screening, and evaluating applicants and selecting potential candidates, which was a laborious and time-consuming process.
The modern recruitment systems are mostly online, and the entire process is digitized and integrated with other compatible systems that are part of the process. An Applicant Tracking System (ATS) automates and streamlines the recruitment process efficiently.
The ATS reaches multiple sources, including social media, and a much broader audience and gets a larger number of applicants for your open requirements. But this also attracts many applications from candidates that are not suitable. For the recruiting team, this becomes an additional unwanted hurdle.
Let us see how using an ATS can ensure that you get suitable and qualified applicants for your preferred job openings:
Firstly, we need to focus on how to identify and shortlist potential candidates with the right talent.
Focus on the Job Title & Description:
Before giving an ad for any vacancy, always determine the job title. Because the title is the face of your job profile. Select the Designation or the job title that defines your requirement. It is not only a job title but also the job role or requirement option you have to fill up before giving a job advertisement. So, the HR team should work with the department hiring manager to create a more accurate set of criteria for the job description.
Right Applicant Tracking Software:
Secondly, the right applicant tracking software is the best solution to avoid unsuitable candidates. A powerful ATS can minimize the load for recruiters by using artificial intelligence (AI). In recruitment, AI is the learning or problem-solving procedure that a computer can do. So that ATS can automate your workflow more effectively and easily engage, screen, and assess candidates. It also helps to automate resume screening by using AI on your existing resume database.
Avoid Duplicate Resumes:
ATS helps organizations to refine the resume by pulling out the various details of the candidate’s profile. So, you can quickly get an idea of who they are and what they’ve done in their career.
Sometimes a single person applies for the same job more than once. In this situation, the talent acquisition software or ATS will not create another profile with the same information. It will notify the candidate that he/she has already registered in this site or job ads. And, the system will notify you of a duplicate resume so that it will help the HR team to maintain a clean database of candidates.
And, TrackTalents is designed with a simple dashboard where recruiters can access all the information they need to source candidates for hiring new employees.
