Is your ATS System Blocking Qualified Candidates?
A recent Harvard Business report revealed that ATS, which is an applicant tracking system, is responsible for blocking or disqualifying many qualified applicants.
This system, which ranks relevant keywords, skills, degrees, credentials, responsibilities and other qualities that indicate to a hiring manager or recruiter that the applicant is qualified for the position has been deemed impersonal, and quite frankly unfair to applicants who don’t know how to use such keywords.
The online virtual job and career fair platform Premier Virtual has an innovative solution to this complex problem.
Virtual hiring rooms. That’s right. The future-focused technology company has positioned itself as a go-to company to help employers create virtual hiring rooms to make job hunting more personal and fair.
Now, hiring managers can meet candidates in a virtual hiring room. Think of it as a 24/7 office that can be linked to your company’s job listings. This allows company recruiters to schedule an ‘open-house on set days and times where candidates can meet and chat. If there is a fit, the recruiter can enter into a pre-screening interview, and then decide if the candidate should be scheduled for a more formal interview.
This tool has proven to reduce time to hire from an average of 30 days to just over 7 days.
What’s included in a virtual hiring room? Here’s what you can expect:
- Fully Customizable Hiring Room
- Live Reporting During Events
- Video Interviews
- Candidate Matching Based on Experience
- Registration Setup Wizard
