With thousands of people applying for jobs and sending you their CVs, why would need a recruitment system? Why can’t you just advertise your job positions on your company website and social media?
Talent attraction is the very beginning of the recruitment process, you still have to manage candidate applications and CVs, put candidates forward for jobs and all the other steps for each unsuccessful and successful candidate. Traditional methods include manually sifting through applications in order to shortlist potential talent for roles. We all remember how time consuming this can be. And then you’ve still got to arrange interviews, and fill other positions too.
So what’s the best way to simplify this process? By implementing a recruitment system, you can scan CVs for keywords in less than a second, send candidates vacancies, interview dates and times plus many other features.
