The Advantages Of E-Recrutement

Online recruitment has become widely used by most companies around the world and it is viewed today by employers a vital recruitment strategy. The internet has made it easier for recruiters to find the right candidates for the vacant posts they usually offer over the year. Thanks to the virtual world, there is now a wide variety of resources available to attract top talent and tap into potential recruits. Facebook for instance comes as the most dominant social network for meeting graduates with special skills and who are looking for their first job online. Therefore e-recruitment is gaining ground among employers who wish to “hunt” the right candidates for the right positions.

As facebook users are increasing everyday, employers are also including their professional pages on the site to attract them. This web tool is providing an effective way to make the recruitment process easier and faster. Job candidates can, in turn, be informed about the job vacancies and they can even fill in their applications online. To maximize the use of the internet, some companies have put a practice test so that candidates can check out if they measure up regarding their qualifications. If they qualify in view to the standard requirements of the company, they can hence go about the application process. In so doing, they can eventually save up the time of completing the application and the money of travelling to the site of the company.

Another advantage of e-recruitment is the automated feedback sent instantly to candidates after they have taken the practice test. This is very encouraging for them to stick with the company and move to continue the application process. Therefore it is important to attract candidates who are talented and highly skilled. For the same reason some companies provide inviting incentives for those who have exceeded the standard requirements in the test. At the same time, the test serves well to weed out inappropriate candidates even before they start the application process. Online recruitment groups are doing a great job in this regard by directing companies to where the right candidates can be found on the net.

What is more important about online technology in the recruitment process is the speed whereby companies reach out young recruits. Besides automated feedback on the test, they set up blogs and chat rooms linked to their official websites. This way graduates can meet their peers gaining work experience and therefore they can know more about the job market. Traditionally companies had been trying to find the right candidates but today they are thinking about ways so that the right candidates can find them. As graduates spend so much time on the net looking for a job, the web is making it easier for employers to make their “professional hunt”.

In conclusion, e-recruitment is hitting the workplace thanks to the virtual world and employers are making the best of web tools to win the race in the job market. Social networking is only one way to get into the realm of top talents among newly graduates and thus pave the way for them to join the company.
