startup stories, trends and digital lifestyle hacks
If you’re reading this, you probably already know the difference tech has made to your company. Heck, you’re using it right now. And, you likely do the same thing day in, and day out. Technology features in every aspect of our daily operations. It provides us with the chance to communicate with overseas customers, and even start businesses from the comfort of our home offices.
And, the benefits don’t end there. Tech can, of course, also help you with production. And, as we’re going to explore today, it can play a huge role in employment. Once, the only chance companies had was to place an advertisement in the paper, or hope people saw the flier in the window. Now, hiring capabilities are endless, ensuring you can find the right person for any job. And, it’s all thanks to tech. Here’s why.
The internet gives us an extended reach in every way, and your job hunt is no different. You don’t have to rely on applicants in your area anymore. Now, you can reach out and appeal to people from all over the country. All it takes is a quick advertisement placed on a job search engine. These are used by job hunters worldwide, and are sure to reap results. Even better, by using keywords, you can rest easy that only suitable candidates apply. Forget rummaging through the slush pile for anyone who comes close. You’ll have your pick of the best people out there. And, you can do it all without printing so much as a flier.
Better Knowledge of Applicants
It wasn’t long ago that employers only had first impressions and references to go by. In case you hadn’t noticed, these are hardly reliable sources. Sure, a good reference still holds weight. But, it doesn’t really show you who an applicant is. Fear not, because tech has you covered here, too. By running potential employees through something like the Truth Finder people search, you stand to find out everything there is to know. This will link you back to an applicant’s social media postings, or any other online activity. For the sake of full disclosure, let your applicants know you’ll be doing this. Then, set about gaining an accurate idea. If someone posts often about views you can’t get behind, they may not be the right person for the job. Equally, if they complain online about their current employer, they may not be the best choice.
Ease of Communication
As there are now so many online options for communication, you also have the possibility of narrowing the list of applicants you meet. Hosting interviews can be a long-winded process. Not to mention that, if someone travels far to meet you, it helps to know that they’re suitable. Lucky for you, programs like Skype have made this much easier. It’s not unusual for employers to host initial interviews using these methods. You’ll still need to meet final applicants, but you can narrow things down with online interviews first.
