Tips for Headhunters
Will robots ever take over our jobs?
Today, robotics, automation and Artificial Intelligence (AI) is affecting every area of our lives. In the past 10 years alone, the technology has leapt forward in leaps and bounds. With hardly a month going by without a new development in autonomous systems, such as self-driving vehicles, the question is – are the robots taking over?
How useful are ATS's in recruitment?
When it comes to creating a job posting for one of the online job boards, there’s plenty of options. However, some can be surprisingly expensive and with few extra frills, compared to free job advertising sites.
Recruiting staff can be expensive and time-consuming, but getting the best match for the role and the company can mean all the difference when it comes to the success of the business. Which is why it can be immensely helpful to tailor your approach depending on the type of candidate you’re recruiting.
Boolean Search is a type of search that allows users to combine keywords with ‘modifiers’ or ‘operators’ to limit, widen or define results. There are three main modifiers: ‘AND’, ‘OR’ and ‘NOT’. Brackets, quotation marks and asterisks are other tools used when performing a Boolean Search. All are used in combination with primary keywords in order to fine-tune a search for quicker, more accurate results.
The interviewing process is almost complete, and you’ve narrowed it down to the last couple of candidates. If you’re lucky you may have a clear winner, however, it’s just as likely that you have a tough decision on your hands with two or even more candidates making the grade.
The question is how do you make that final selection?
Recruiting the best candidate for the job can be a demanding process, but even when you do find the perfect candidate, that’s doesn’t necessarily mean they’re going to sign on the dotted line. Getting to that point means putting together the right job offer in a timely manner, because there’s a lot that can happen between the final interview and the job offer.
Interviewing isn’t easy. It takes skills, experience and real people skills. If you’re a recruiter or work in HR, then these are attributes you should possess, but there are legal considerations to take into account too, which is where non-recruitment personnel, or small business owners who don’t hire regularly, sometimes get it wrong.
