Online recruitment ‘revolutionising’ candidate hiring
The internet and online recruitment agencies have completely revolutionised the role of the traditional recruiter, it has been claimed.
Web Newswire reports that emerging technologies have made the process of finding candidates quicker, cheaper and more efficient for employers.
They no longer have to use cold calling or candidate networking techniques to identify possible interviewees; instead they have access to hundreds of CVs which are posted on online recruitment sites.
Companies can also gain vital business intelligence and information using the internet and can make use of social networking sites to quickly put then in contact with a wealth of potential employees.
Online corporate staff directories can also throw up a wealth of talent for employers.
When submitting job advertisements to online recruitment sites, managers should make the advert "as interesting and as engaging as possible", in the opinion of Julian Acquari from Monster.
