How Technology Can Make Hiring the Right Candidates Easier

Smart Business (05/01/12)

Jeremy Wilcomb, operations manager of the staffing firm the Daniel Group, says technology can aid the traditional recruiting process as well as allow companies to find candidates through such sites as LinkedIn, Twitter, and CareerBuilder, an ASA corporate partner. Companies can search both domestically and internationally and quickly locate qualified candidates with the help of social networking. Moreover, technology can be used to gather more information about candidates, and video résumés and Skype interviews allow them to get to know candidates, particularly those from out-of-state, in a way that paper and phone communications do not allow. Companies also benefit from partnering with staffing firms, which use technology to prescreen candidates and generate reports about staffing needs in terms of finances, project management, and training so that they can gauge future staffing issues.
