Recruiting Remote Talent – A Challenge for Both Employers and Candidates
Traditonally, seeking talent from farther afield involves lots of little inconveniences for both employers and candidates.
Companies usually have to contend with different time zones, admin challenges and maybe losing out on great talent because they cannot reasonably travel to a face to face interview.
Candidates also face similar challenges. These often involve frustrations about the time and resources it takes to travel to interviews. They find they need to take time off work, with no guarantee of a job at the end.
Recruiting Remote Talent – Solutions
Today’s recruitment technology has adapted to respond to the distance problem. There are now a range of tools that help recruiters find and communicate with talent remotely.
These include advanced candidate screening, the ability to conduct video interviews and job ads designed to accept applications via mobile devices.
These tools help recruiters cut down the number of candidates in the process that are unsuited to the role. This means that less candidates will be frustrated at travelling to a interview for a job they were never going to get.
Candidates who are some distance away – or who are particularly short on time – can be asked to conduct a live or recorded video interview. This allows employers to have a meaningful interaction with potential talent, rather than an exchange of emails.
Recruitment today must adapt to the use of mobile phones and tablets by candidates. Employers who do not provide the ability to accept applications via mobile devices can find themselves at a real disadvantage.
A busy, focussed, on-the-move candidate (the very type of person you are trying to attract!) may not have the time to retype their entire CV into your application form, but can easily send their CV and a quick cover letter from their phone while on the move.
