If your company is being inundated with resumes from job seekers, like many throughout the country currently are, you may want to consider implementing some type of Web-based staffing software solution.
Web-based staffing software uses artificial intelligence and resume tracking software to collect, sort through and rank large amounts of resumes and candidate information. That information is then turned over to hiring managers and recruiters so they can more easily and efficiently select the right person for the job.
However, when implementing staffing software, there are many things to consider, according to an article by eHow:
- Staffing software can reduce the amount of pressure placed on hiring managers. Software eliminates much of the administrative work required by old fashioned methods and allows recruiters to better describe the critical skills needed for job success, which in turn increases the chances of finding the best candidate.
- Staffing software can help reduce the number of repeated or misdirected job searches. When choosing a staffing software, you should make sure the resume management component has immediate online access so hiring managers can make fast decisions. The software also should be user-friendly for both candidates and hiring managers.
- The software should be able to identify talented candidates with unusual skills and qualifications that fit the open position. It also should allow hiring managers to query data according to a variety of search combinations. The software should have the ability to link to external job boards and social networking sites.
- After your company invests the initial funding for the staffing software, it should generate significant savings in time, money and efficiency.
As you can see, there are many things to consider when choosing a staffing software provider. But it’s most important to keep in mind that if you’re able to find the right software, the benefits and savings will greatly outweigh any initial financial investment.
