The relationship between recruiters and hiring managers has the potential to make or break your hiring process. No relationship is perfect, but there are a few things you can do set yourself up for success.
In a recent webinar, Entelo’s very own People Ops Manager, Elisabeth Giammona and Recruiting Manager at Uber, Scott Lee, shared their expertise on seamless hiring manager and recruiter collaboration.
During the webinar, attendees asked some great questions, so now we’re answering:
Recruiters aren’t the only ones benefiting from in influx of AI and automation technologies helping business run better. Because AI is making workflows more streamlined for recruiters, candidates will also start to reap the benefits of recruiting automation.
From better email outreach to the reduction of unconscious bias, AI is changing the candidate experience for the better.
As AI changes everything from how we drive to what we watch and even how we turn the lights on when we get home from a long day -- it’s also changing the way we work. Sales and marketing teams have been onto the secret of AI for years, augmenting their workflows with automation which allows them to scale their efforts to achieve loftier goals and produce a higher quality of work than ever before. Now, with the emergence of recruiting automation, the time has come for recruiters to experience this same revolution.
Your first outreach email was perfection, but you’re not hearing back. Now what?
In a landscape where jobs are finding people rather than people finding jobs, your initial outreach can get buried under messages from other recruiters. The best way to ensure you capture the attention of candidates is to send a follow up email. In fact, recruiters who use follow ups receive 50% more responses overall than those who don’t. So contrary to popular belief, you do have more than one chance to make a good first impression.
This week’s roundup is perfectly summed up by our first featured headline, “Welcome to the age of Recruiting Automation.” Marketing and sales roles have benefitted and grown because of the adoption of automation tools. The time for recruiting to join the ranks of people using AI to make their work more efficient, streamlined and meaningful. Catch-up on all the recruiting automation news this week.
The hiring tables have turned. We are now in the era of jobs finding people rather than people finding jobs. With unemployment at a 17 year low, top candidates find themselves bombarded with emails, calls and direct messages all offering them new opportunities. When passive candidates have so much opportunity when it comes to their next job, recruiters are put in a position to entice candidates to their open roles and away from the next shiny thing to enter their inbox.
“The status quo is simply not going to work going forward.” said CEO and Founder of Entelo, Jon Bischke.
As recruiting enters an era where jobs are finding people, rather than people finding jobs, recruiters need to add new tools to their arsenal to remain competitive in this landscape. Welcome to the age of recruiting automation.
The pressure is on for modern recruiters. Hiring goals constantly increasing and the labor market is more competitive than ever. When the pressure to deliver on goals sets in, it’s easy to compromise on quality of candidate to just get someone in the door. Delivering on key performance indicators (KPIs) in the short term shouldn’t mean paying the price of a bad hire in the long term, especially when 41 percent of companies reported that a bad hire cost their organization $25,000.
Recruiting automation is more than just the latest buzzword. This new category describes how cutting-edge organizations are using the latest technology to identify, qualify and engage the highest quality talent. As the labor market is extremely competitive and recruiting teams are spread thin, there’s barely time in the day to connect with a candidate, let alone explore new technology. But passing over the latest trend in favor of spending more time sourcing will hurt more than help in the long run -- as smaller recruiting teams look for ways to keep up with organizations that have larger budgets, the solution is to work smarter, not harder, by adopting recruiting automation technology.
With the end of June just around the corner, so ends the first half of 2018. The last six months have flown by, but not without shaking the recruiting industry first. Over the course of 2018, thus far, recruiting automation has shaped and changed recruiting practices making hiring smarter and faster than ever. In fact, at the close of 2017, 62 percent of talent acquisition professionals were planning to spend money on AI-powered recruiting software. Due to this major shift in the industry, we’re wrapping up the best recruiting software on the market in 2018.
Machine learning often times makes people uneasy. It evokes visions of robots becoming more and more like humans every day, and eventually doing our jobs better than we can. In reality, machine learning has made its way into the workplace with a much different impact. Humans are more efficient and are able to do their jobs better than ever before. Machine learning, when applied to sales and marketing, didn’t eliminate the need for sales people and marketers, in fact the results are quite the contrary. Using machine learning and predictive analytics, sales and marketing professionals constantly take data driven approaches to their jobs, helping them achieve their goals, as well as earn seats at the decision-making table. Therefore, the time has come for machine learning for recruiting.

Leading off with Billy Beane, who shared his personal experience bringing predictive analytics to the world of baseball, all the way through the final session in which Robin Ericson from Bersin by Deloitte pulled back the curtain on the secrets behind high-performing TA teams, attendees learned, networked, and tweeted through a full day of amazing content.
