How long will it take for you to fill up those positions?
Do you know that most employers would take more than a month before they are able to fill up that position?

You do not want this to happen to you especially if you are still starting out.
You need to come up with an effective recruitment management system so that you will be able to fill up those job positions faster.
Tips to Improve Recruitment Process Efficiency
The great thing about the recruitment process is that it can now be improved greatly as compared to before.
You just need to know the right tips and after that, you will be able to fill up those job positions faster.
Are you familiar with what an ATS is?
This stands for Applicant Tracking System.
What exactly does this do? This allows you to track the different applicants during the whole process.
For example, there may be some applicants that did not make the next cut because they are underqualified.
You do not have to spend so much time checking out their CVs anymore.
You can just focus on those that are qualified to take the next steps of the recruitment process.
Through the ATS, you can determine the following things:
- Figure out where most of the applicants are coming from.
- Get to see what career pages you should pay attention to more.
- Check out the different qualities and skills that your applicants usually have.
There are so many applicant-tracking systems that are available online.
You simply need to be familiar with the different ones so that you can choose the best one for your needs.
Be Specific in Your Job Description
Some people make the mistake of including so many details in the job description.
This can either make people bored so they do not want to apply anymore or they may feel that they can apply even if they are not qualified.
There are some people who will still apply for jobs even if they only meet 60% of the requirements.
Going through so many applicants can slow down the recruitment process.
You would need to check so many profiles when in fact, they are not even qualified and should not be considered in the first place.
Let people know exactly what you are looking for. It will lessen the number of unqualified applicants who will send in their applications.
Communicate with Potential Applicants
You want to show some of the applicants that you are interested in hiring them.
You need to remember that hiring the right people for the job can be a bit hard at this point.
There are some people who will fit what you are searching for.
By constantly communicating with them, you are also going to provide them with a more positive experience when it comes to searching for the right job.
It would also increase their desire to work for your company.
This is important because there are a lot of people who are searching for jobs.
Not all of them are qualified.
You always need to search for top talents otherwise you may end up with people who will not fit your company’s environment well.
You can also place their data on your data pool.
This way, if you would need to fill a similar position, you can check the talent pool and choose from there.
Check Your Current Employees
You may not realize this in the beginning but looking at your current employees will make a lot of difference.
Do you know that you will be able to boost the employment process when they can also recommend the right people to possibly work for your company?
The people they know may have the same work ethic as them.
They may also have the same qualities and skills that make them valuable members of your work environment.
At the same time, you can also open some job positions to your current employees.
A lot of them are always looking forward to being promoted.
It will give them a sense of fulfillment whenever they know that they are being appreciated for the things that they do for the company.
Consider Trying a Social Media Recruitment Strategy
You need to find the right candidates where they currently are.
If you are trying to target a certain market, go to the social media site wherein you know that you can see them.
For example, you may be targeting people from LinkedIn. Make sure that you have a great profile there.
It will make a lot of difference with the type of candidates that you will attract.
Remember to showcase your culture through the things that you will post on social media.
The more that people will love your company’s culture, the more that they will strive to become a part of your company.
