Online Job Posting with Employment Online Applications
An overwhelming majority of job seekers — more than 90 percent — say that online job boards are where they will start the search for their next job. But if you or your staffing firm is still stuck in the past and aren’t posting your open positions online, that means the best talent won’t be able to find you, and you’ll likely be locked out from the right person for the job at hand through no fault but your own.
However, it doesn’t stop at just posting a job online. If you’ve ever tried to hire talent with the efficiencies of an online process, you’ll know that unless you’ve got it together, it could be more complicated and take more time and resources to find your next hire than if you engaged in your standard hiring practice. That’s because for every job listing online, you’re likely to get tons of responses, sometimes into the hundreds or unbelievably, thousands. With that amount of attention and the efficiencies of online hiring, you’ll have tons of resumes, CVs and other credentials to sift through, and that’s before you’ve even identified a few good candidates and started interviewing or vetting them.
With online job posting, the hiring process is made easy, not a chore, and you’ll be able to screen and vet more applicants for every position while spending less time doing so, which should lead to better hires, an increase in HR resources, and more informed decisions all around.
It all starts with the right job posting software that works for you, your team and your needs. A flexible system that enables a high degree of customization and automated job posting output shortens the time frame between your client’s need and the right person to fill that role, even while you get vastly more applicants for each role. The right job board software works with your existing website and embeds the link to your own job posting page in your website mimicking your site’s look and feel, as it should be. Ensure that the applicants you bring in are better informed and more qualified for the job at hand, which makes for a greatly simplified and optimized identification and hiring process.
Online Job posting and mobile applications minimize the manual aspects involved in locating the best talent, and it also effectively shortens the time it’ll take to fill any position. Whether your staffing firm is spending too much time crafting job listings, fielding responses or pre-screening candidates, automated job posting can help you reclaim lost efficiency and enhance the hiring process for your company, your applicants, and even those that you’ve decided are not a good fit through helpful automated responses that you can create and customize.
A custom job board that looks the part and fits your website’s branding also makes it easy for anyone to see what your openings are, and multiple daily updates means that when you fill a position, you won’t have an outdated posting clogging up your resources for days, weeks or months. Through RSS feeds, your job board will link to several internet sites that include job aggregators such as Facebook, Twitter, Simply Hired, CareerJet, Zip Recruiter and Glassdoor. Work with other job boards? You can receive an XML feed and an RSS feed to any aggregators you work with directly. You only must format one job listing to send it across the internet, which reduces the overall burden of creating that crucial job posting in the first place.
Your applicants can review the job posted and choose to apply online, apply later, share the job, refer a friend and/or see related job listings. If the applicant selects to apply online, they will complete your firm’s application or if they are on a mobile device, they are directed to a mobilized online applicant form. Your staffers are then able to download applications where once selected; the application will auto populate into the COATS employee master record with a status of “new” candidate.
