How Technology Can Help You Recruit (& Save Your Sanity)

Posted by Karim Kassam on 2/7/19 2:42 PM


Every broker's recruitment process tends to have its own unique way of attracting, selecting, and hiring agents. It is both a critically important and time-consuming task. Technology can support this process and help build relationships between brokers and prospective agents. It can also resolve some of the biggest recruitment challenges brokers face, resulting in a more efficient and effective process overall. 

Four Ways Technology Helps Brokers Recruit

STAGE 1 - OPEN REQUISITION: Improve your initial open requisition by using software that analyzes your job description and provides suggestions to make it more appealing and inclusive.

STAGE 2 - SOURCING: Software can help source candidates by using algorithms to scrape potential candidates’ online profiles and match resumes of previous applicants in your Applicant Tracking System (ATS) to current open opportunities.

STAGE 3 - SCREEN & SHORTLIST: Software can automate candidate screening by learning about existing employees’ experience and skills and automatically grade and shortlist candidates for consideration.

STAGE 4 - SCHEDULE & INTERVIEW: Technology can manage interview scheduling to save you a lot of time and online interviewing tools can be used to conduct interviews in real time or pre-record to watch when convenient. Also, recruiter chatbots can help answer candidates’ questions and inform of next steps in the process.

Technology has an important place in recruitment, but it should support and enhance your recruitment process, not replace it altogether.
