Job Posts

Let's get into some job posts. I have a few jobs posts out here, associate trainer, client retention, various roles that I've created for my training company. I can see an overview of the position. I can see the posting owner and the actual posting date and I can see what applicant's I have as well as what candidates I have, so those that are further along in the process. The One button here is letting you know that I have a new candidate that has applied for this position. I can edit this as well. I can also copy this posting link for URLs. We have a dedicated job board that's available to you that I will show you when we get into the application side, but this post allows me to link directly to this job posts as opposed to the full job board. If you are using a vendor like indeed or Linkedin, you can take this URL and redirect them to your portal. So I can copy that post right away and set that up.

The Benefits of Hiring Recent Graduates

The Benefits of Hiring Recent Graduates

As an HR professional, I am sure you are very aware of the long and arduous process of finding the perfect candidate to fill a position. Reading resumes, going over applications, checking in with references, interviewing, running background checks and so on are tasks that take a long time and keep you from focusing on other important responsibilities. It's a long process and we all wish we didn’t have to do it so often. Depending on the level of turnover at your company, some might be doing this more often than others. Is there a way to make this process easier? Does focusing on entry-level candidates help the process? Many employers believe that hiring experienced professionals is the smartest thing to do because they don’t need as much guidance or training, they have already worked in professional settings, and they know what they need to do in order to get things done in a timely manner. Whatever the reason may be, employers tend to prefer hiring experienced professionals rather than entry-level professionals. What employers need to realize is that there are many pros to hiring entry-level candidates over experienced professionals.

5 Tips to Attract and Retain the Best Talent

5 Tips to Attract and Retain the Best Talent

Recruiting nowadays has become rather difficult. Applicants are very picky when applying to companies as they want the process to be as smooth and easy as possible. Usually, if the application process involves writing a cover letter, creating a profile, or anything other than just filling out a simple application form and submitting a resume, they skip it and move on to the next. These are probably the people you would not want to have working in your company. When a good applicant is searching for a new job and is fully committed to landing one, they will do whatever it takes to stand out from the rest of the applicants and get a job offer. These are the people you want to hire and keep in your company. However, that doesn’t mean your applicants should be jumping through hoops in order to apply. Even the most dedicated candidates can easily get turned off by a poorly designed application process. The following are just a few tips you can follow in order to attract and retain the best talent.
