Misfire of Technology When Recruiting

As many business owners and managers would know, the internet can be a valuable tool when recruiting. But when does overuse or misuse of the tools at our fingertips (quite literally) become too much or too overwhelming?

Simply posting a job advertisement on your business Facebook page, while it seems like a quick and easy solution, it could expose you to a lower quality of candidates. The sheer volume of applications could also become extremely time consuming all for no reward.

Given the new algorithms, you could open yourself up to receiving applications from anywhere in the world. While this might be a good option for some Global companies or specific roles, it could result in another laborious task.

Similarly, while Job Search platforms are cost effective, this can be a very onerous task. Given the current economic climate, there is an extremely high number of candidates applying for each role advertised – and it does not necessarily mean they have the qualifications to fulfil the role! Many business owners and managers find it hard to assess each and every one of the applications. This could mean the prime candidate is overlooked given the mammoth task of screening each resume.

The first step to the recruiting and onboarding process is to identify the business requirements and capabilities. At JP Smith Recruitment & Human Resources, we can do that for you.
