When it comes to equality in the workplace and employee rights, it’s fair to say that we’re no longer in the dark ages. However, recent news coming out of the US would suggest that one company (or recruiter) didn’t get the memo that we should be treating all candidates fairly.
This week we caught up with Shane Gray from Clinch.io to find out exactly what we as recruiters can do to get the most out of our job posts on Google for Jobs. A veteran of technology business development and strategy with the uncanny ability to distill a complex issue into something that is clearly understandable, Shane has helped hundreds of businesses meet their objectives and grow. He jumped into the HRTech arena in 2014 with Clinch and established the firm as one of the hottest entrants in the Talent Engagement and Marketing sector.
There are certain red flags that we recruiters are always on the lookout for, but sometimes these apparent warning signs might do the candidate a dis-service. For example, a poor academic record doesn’t necessarily equate to an employee with a poor aptitude for office-based work.
If you are a recruiter, it's time to modernize your recruitment approach. If you aren't using SMS texting to reach out to potential job seekers, you are missing out on a young, vibrant and eager-to-work demographic. When job seekers sign up for a job board to see what is available, permission to text these job seekers can be worked into the signup process. This means that when you send out a text to potential job seekers, they have already shown interest in working for your company.
