Despite its straightforward goal, recruiting is never a simple process. Regardless of industry, so much goes on behind the scenes when finding the right person for a job. Fortunately, modern technology solutions such as Bullhorn cloud have made this much easier. Technology has become an incredibly important part of locating and attracting the right talent.
From online resumes to social networking sites such as LinkedIn, recruiters and hiring managers have never had so much actionable information at their fingertips. The question is, what technology are you missing out on that could make staffing a more efficient and accurate affair? Like most things these days, the answer lies in the cloud — cloud communications, to be more specific, particularly those solutions that integrate with business applications.
Staffing in the Cloud
When it comes to staffing, communication is key. On any given project, you'll need to conduct research on job requirements, talent pool, and any number of other pertinent aspects. CRMs such as Bullhorn or JobDiva make all of these tasks easier.
How does that work? Like any other CRM, each serves as a highly organized and accessible information dump. This allows you to grab important information such as qualifications, job experience, and professional network information, all on the fly. Advanced reporting functions then allow you to place parameters around the data you're looking for and then let the cloud find the right talent for you.
Taking advantage of a cloud-based communication platform allows you to more efficiently connect the dots between candidates, clients, and the information locked away in your Bullhorn cloud.
Okay, okay, that all sounds great, but what does it have to do with communication? As useful as it is to have all that information at your fingertips, it means next to nothing without the ability to act on it.
In a traditional setting, you would have to pull out your notepad, compile a list of candidates to call, and maybe scribble some important notes to keep in mind next to each one. Then, you know, you have to make the actual call.
In this scenario, you can bounce back and forth between candidates and clients, relaying updated information on each project. While CRMs excel at the information aspect, you'd still need one more piece of the technology puzzle to truly tie things together in an efficient and empowering manner.
JobDiva and Bullhorn Cloud Integration
The logical solution is a cloud-based communication platform that can integrate tightly with the Bullhorns and JobDivas of the world to facilitate fluid communication of the information they hold. Combining these two technologies changes the game.
Instead of bouncing from software to notepads to phone systems, you can access all information and communication tools from the same view. For instance, you can pull up a candidate's LinkedIn page straight from her Bullhorn entry while simultaneously chatting with her through the call pop-up. If you have a pool of candidates to contact and track, do it all from your web browser while taking notes, recording calls, and updating project tasks in the same platform.
Is your recruiting business process missing out on a technology boost? If you haven't found a way to integrate the information piece with communication, the answer is yes. Taking advantage of a cloud-based communication platform allows you to more efficiently connect the dots between candidates, clients, and the information locked away in your Bullhorn or JobDiva cloud.
