My high school baseball coach used to preach the importance of making the routine plays. His mantra was, “If we focus on the routine plays, the rest will take care of itself.”
The same is true for recruiters. In a time when the industry is bombarded with buzzwords like “social recruiting,” “candidate experience,” and “company brand,” the routine plays can be neglected.
But it’s in these details where you set yourself apart. One such practice is providing feedback to interviewees who are rejected for a job opening. In fact, a 2014 Talent Board study shows only one in five candidates received significant feedback from recruiters or hiring managers after an interview.
As a recruiter, you can’t let this happen. Not if you want to solidify yourself as someone who cares about the candidate experience.
You’re flying out for a HR conference tonight, but as a Recruitment Manager there’s a lot to do before you leave. Reviewing candidates, monitoring the progress of job openings, scheduling interviews, responding to emails and keeping track of your task list can be overwhelming.
The good news is Zoho Recruit lets you take care of these tasks wherever you are. With the new Zoho Recruit Mobile App you no longer have to worry about finishing everything on your to-do list before you leave. You can now work on-the-go.

If you were a child of the late 90s like yours truly, there’s a good chance you owned a “___ is Life. The Rest is Just Details” T-shirt.
Mine was baseball. It was off-white by the end of its tenure, soft to the touch from hundreds of washings and hung to my knees fulfilling the unwritten rule that under no circumstance should a parent buy a shirt that actually fits his or her child.
I thought about this T-shirt the other week. I was in Denver listening to John Vlastelica—Founder and Managing Editor of Recruiting Toolbox—speak to a room of recruiters and staffing professionals when he said something that caught my attention.
“Hiring managers care about two things,” he said. “Speed and quality.”
Speed and quality. That’s it. They don’t care how you get there or how many other companies you recruit for or what job board(s) you use. They want positions filled quickly and with the best candidates.
The rest is just…details.
We’re excited to announce the launch of the all new Zoho Recruit. We owe a big one to our faithful customers, who have contributed much to the crafting of this version through their valuable feedback and feature requests.
The four major challenges recruiters usually face are sourcing hurdles, tracking inefficiencies, lack of collaboration and software complexity. To overcome these challenges, we offer you a feature-packed and easy-to-use recruitment solution with the new Zoho Recruit.
We’ve got everything you need to start your recruitment process from scratch, and keep it running smooth and hassle-free.
You have an efficient ATS (Applicant Tracking System), smart recruiters, top-of-the-class candidates, but still your attrition rates keep climbing. What went wrong? When you strip a person of his or her credentials and examine their personality, you will find the answer. If you can match the personality of the person with the nature of his/her job, then you’ve got a perfect match!
That’s why Zoho Recruit has joined with ThinkTest, the popular personality test provider supported by NSI Solution inc, in an effort to bridge the gap between a candidate’s personality and job profiles.
Gabriel Pouliot, the spokesperson for ThinkTest says “ThinkTest uses personality dimensions that can relate to almost any job and job reality. It helps create personality prototypes that match the job profile you are looking for. While recruiting candidates, you can then compare their profiles to the ones you have prototyped”.
It’s a perfect Monday morning: the coffee is warm, the laptop is on, and you are all set to start the task of the day. It’s quite a time-sensitive one; you need to urgently fill an opening for the web designer post. Let’s see which of these two recruiters get this job done without impeding the progress of their perfect Monday.
If you’re anything like the recruiters I’ve spoken with, it’s a fair assumption that you and your hiring managers don’t always see eye to eye.
Okay maybe not every hiring manager—I’m sure there are ones you’re in sync with like too-good-to-be-true-sitcom-friendships—but whether you work with one, five or 50, there are moments you’re both frustrated.
That’s because the partnership is often a strange and cruel paradox. Maintaining a strong relationship with hiring managers is the most influential factor in talent acquisition performance, but these relationships are also a top culprit of stress for recruiting professionals.
It doesn’t have to be this way. The two of you can work in harmony.
