Talent acquisition is tough. Whether your search starts with applications flowing in through a public job posting, candidates being manually sourced through LinkedIn, or current employees giving personal referrals, the process can be sprawling unless you keep it under control.
Thankfully, there are apps out there that do the heavy lifting for you and are powering talent acquisition for some of the world’s fastest growing companies. We put together a collection of some of our favourites to help you build out your company’s HR stack for better recruiting.
These apps make talent acquisition easy from start to finish, keeping your pipeline organized and helping you find the perfect fit for every role.
Why Do Talent Acquisition Apps Matter?
Are your job postings turning your best talent away?
Legacy systems that force candidates to copy and paste their uploaded resume into plain text; submission flows that take an hour for a candidate to successfully navigate—every step you add to the process is another opportunity for a jobseeker to head elsewhere.
To improve your entire strategy, you need to focus on using tools that will make life easier for you and your candidates. Talent acquisition is a two way street and you need to think about candidate experience just as much as you think about sorting through a sea of applications.
