How much time do you spend screening candidates? A whole day can be spent reviewing resumes to create a shortlist, followed by 30 minutes per candidate on a phone screen, and then 1 hour or more per candidate for a first round interview.
This webinar recording from SocialTalent shows you how to shorten the screening process so you have more face time with your most qualified candidates.
- Bright’s CV screening tool: This tool helps you save time on screening resumes - simply add your job description and upload resumes, and the Bright Score Calculator will rank each candidate against the job description you've entered, in minutes - rather than hours. Each candidate will receive a score between 0-100, and those with the highest score are best suited to move on to the next step in the recruitment process.
SurveyMonkey questionnaires: Once you've identified your shortlist from Bright, send them a short qualification survey instead of scheduling a phone screen. This saves you time, and offers the candidate more flexibility in terms of scheduling. You can set up a 10 question survey for free, set a deadline for completion and quickly sort through the results to bring forward only your best, and most qualified, candidates.
Sonru’s automated video interviewing tool: To save time on your first round interviews, try using this automated and recorded video interview tool. This allows candidates to answer your preliminary questions on their own schedule, and gives each a more consistent experience. You can then quickly review the candidates on your own schedule as well, and bring in only the most qualified for an in-person interview.
