Over the, the workplace has changed dramatically thanks to technology. Technology is incredibly , but fast paced and ever advancing nature makes keeping up with its movements incredibly difficult.
Today, recruiters and HRs utilize online platforms like no other. The number of job advertisements and applications continuing to rise in the making it more difficult for companies to attract the right candidates to their vacancies. Engaging with candidates online is imperative if you want to be recognized as an employer of choice.
However with so many developments happening in the “tech” sphere which tools should you use to captivate the right candidates? Here are three key tools that should be part of your digital toolbox.
Online Job boards may now be considered the older sibling to social media but they still serve a significant purpose in the recruitment process. Unlike social media users and visitors to your website, those who browse job boards are there for one reason and one reason only: to find their next role. Those utilizing job boards such as glassdoor.com, LinkedIn and Indeed are most likely going to be active job seekers so a presence on these platforms increases your exposure to more candidates ensuring that you have the pick of the bunch when it comes to shortlisting.

Every couple of weeks we make enhancements -big and small- to Zoho Recruit. Most times we focus only on the bigger things and we forget to talk about the smaller enhancements that quickly add up to a better experience.
So today I wanted to highlight some of the things we’ve recently done to make Zoho Recruit’s user experience more convenient and easier:
This is something many of you have been asking for and we’ve are happy to announce that we’ve added Dependency pick list as an option for all Modules in Zoho Recruit. You can now create dependencies between two pick list fields and define the filter values – you can read about this in the Dependency pick list online help.
Add Attachments while scheduling an Interview
Add Attachments while scheduling an Interview is the most recent addition in our series of enhancements in Zoho Recruit. Apart from adding notes, this will help the interviewer add assessment report about the candidate for any future reference.
Custom Interview Types
We’ve added the ability to add Custom Interview Types in Zoho Recruit. They enable you to add custom interview types according to your organization needs – like first level interview, second level interview, one-on-one interview, etc.
Merge Fields in Forward to Client/Hiring Manager
Previously you could only forward resumes to clients only with the pre-defined merge fields. Now Zoho Recruit supports merge fields in “Forward to Client” with all the form fields.
We hope these improvements help make Zoho Recruit just that much more convenient and easier for you! If you have any comments or suggestions, please dont hesitate to get in touch.
