HR Review Logo

Thanks to smart phones, we live in an app dominated world. It’s not just for personal use or fun games. Businesses release new apps for their customers every day, and it’s impossible to go to a networking event without seeing people check LinkedIn on their phones. Recruiters are huge proponents of the benefits of using apps to help win the war on talent, but it’s important to know which ones are right for what you’re looking for. Mike Weil, Sourcing Specialist, provides insight on what apps to use before jumping to the app store and improving recruiting efforts.

HR Review: Technology evolves faster than anything else on earth. The websites, social platforms, and apps available for recruiters and job seekers are no exception. Just because Monster, CareerBuilder, Facebook, and LinkedIn are some of the most popular websites right now for those services, they’re not the only ones out there or the newest. And they will eventually be replaced. So, as a recruiter, it’s important that you keep abreast of what’s emerging. A bit of time spent regularly searching for new Apps and job boards could well be worth your time and give you a “got there first” advantage to finding great candidates.

  • Some emerging apps for recruiters – By typing in something as simple as “Recruiting” and “Job Apps” into the App Store search, you can find several apps like Weave, Snagajob, Red Book Connect, and even Snapchat, that are useful and unique to different fields/industries and purposes.
  • But is this app useful?- It can be hard to tell whether or not a website or app is going to be useful. It’s really about trial and error. Create a user name and password, explore a little, check back in every couple days and see if you’ve had some success. 
  • Stay ahead of your competitors. - In order to be the best recruiter you can be, you want to be aware of anything new in the industry. There are millions of unemployed people who are spending their days online signing up for every and any website with the hopes of finding a job. What if you got to those websites first?
