Are you a firm looking to recruit the ideal procurement and supply chain candidates for 2022? Or a hopeful candidate seeking your first, or next challenge? Alongside the usual job boards and established recruitment apps there are a number of up and coming platforms that can help you get where you need to go.
In this article, we take a look at some of the best recruitment apps and tools to try in 2022 and beyond. So, grab a warming drink of your choice, and let’s explore the platforms that can boost your career or your talent pool in the coming year.
If your business is looking to attract and hire recent graduates or you are a uni or college leaver seeking your first opportunity, Debut could be the recruitment app for you.
Debut enables procurement and supply chain businesses and graduates to speak to one another directly on the channels they prefer. Here’s an overview of what Debut offers for employers and candidates.
For employers - Debut offers the chance to reach Gen Z students across over 1200 universities, through a channel that positions you as a forward-thinking organisation - something that is very important to younger candidates. Brands can send job alerts on a variety of platforms, optimising opportunities for contact through multiple touchpoints.
Push notifications are sent based on the student’s preferences so you won’t risk alienating them with an aggressive approach. Keeping it on the candidate’s terms is vital when attracting this sought after audience. If you feel your business messaging sounds a bit behind the times, the team at Debit can help hone your copy to appeal to the target audience. They even organise virtual events to help you connect with both active and passive candidates and win them over to your brand.
For students - At time of writing, the Debut app gets a rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars, so it is definitely well-regarded and trusted among students. Smart filters hone in on suitable jobs based on a wide range of criteria, and candidates can track their application in just a few clicks. One of Debut’s main USPs for graduates is enabling them to uncover jobs they wouldn’t have otherwise known had existed. So, there’s room for the major players and also for smaller businesses that might have gone under the radar on the larger job boards.
Debut is great for passive candidates as the emphasis is on the companies to do the leg work. Once you set your preferences you can simply wait for potential employers to make contact. There are also internship opportunities available for candidates who want to try out a few different roles or add some experience to their CV.
In addition, Debut has driven the Fight for Feedback campaign, which aims to make it a requirement for employers to give interview feedback to candidates. Something we wholeheartedly support.
HireVue claims that it reduces the amount of time it takes to hire by 90%. While we can’t attest to this impressive statistic, we can agree that it is a worthy contender for one of the top recruitment tools for 2022. HireVue integrates seamlessly with a wide variety of applicant tracking and calendar systems helping users save time on recruitment tasks such as video interviewing, assessments, and scheduling.
The ability to screen candidates remotely will be valuable to busy HR and recruitment personnel, with or without lockdown restrictions to consider. You can send candidates questions in advance and view and rate the answers internally, once submitted. Interviews can be live-streamed through Skype and FaceTime integrations with additional chat and real-time rating facilities available for the hiring team.
Conversational commerce is a leading trend in recruitment technology. HireVue has this covered with chat available across all channels. Perfect for attracting and accommodating the top Millennial talent.
LinkedIn needs no introduction, though many brands aren’t aware of LinkedIn Recruiter. This advanced version of the market-leading professional networking site has a number of features that help both candidates and recruiters meet their objectives. These include advanced search and AI-powered candidate recommendations, the ability to email prospective candidates directly and enhanced sourcing tools.
Users have access to over 40 advanced filters for improved search, the results of which feed into LinkedIn’s machine learning capabilities, delivering more accurate recommendations as you continue to refine your search.
Understanding the need for collaboration, LinkedIn Recruiter enables users to share candidate profiles, and you can connect your applicant tracking system to review candidates alongside applicants you have sourced from LinkedIn itself.
