Top 5 apps for recruiters
Love a to-do list? Evernote is for you. An organisational app which will help you to manage, create and plan all aspects of your day. With quirky features such as being able to ‘clip’ news articles together in their own folders, you will be able to keep track of work and even store information about candidate’s portfolios with this handy app.
If you aren’t using social media as a tool for your recruitment, why not?! For those that utilise their social profiles to attract candidates and potential clients, Hootsuite is a useful app which allows you to handle all your social profiles in one place. No more skipping between social accounts with this, you’ll save time and be able to keep in touch with your contacts on socials easily.
HireVue is a great app for those recruiters with a busy schedule (pretty much all of you, we know). If you are struggling to find the time to fit in interviews with your candidates, you can simply send them questions via this app and they can respond with video answers. These answers can also be shared with your client if needed and stats can be compared against other candidates if the hiring process is proving to be tough!
Another social platform with a twist. Instajob allows recruiters to easily create images to advertise their latest jobs in just a few clicks. Create a branded, eye-catching image to draw the attention of potential candidates, plus these images can be easily shared on your social channels. If required they can also be linked up to your website where more information and a call-to-action is displayed.
A one-stop shop for all things recruitment, Bullhorn is a fantastic application for recruiters looking for one place to manage their entire process. From viewing candidates and jobs and searching for CVs, through to providing directions to a client or candidate’s address and tracking email and calendar activity – there is so much to do with this app.
