You’re super busy, especially during the demanding campus recruiting season. Whether you have a light schedule of a few events per month, or a jammed-packed, “I cannot even catch my breath” roster, every talent acquisition professional could benefit from more time on their side. But how? The savviest recruiters are using recruiting technology to gain additional time – before, during and post-events.
The Benefits of a Self-Scheduling Tool
Campus events entail scheduling a lot of conversations, with a large crowd of candidates, within a short amount of time. Imagine if you could off-load that task and automate the entire process. It’s time you graduated to a self-scheduler. Self-scheduling technology increases productivity across the board, for all parties involved – recruiters, hiring managers, and candidates – buy eliminating the need to manually schedule and re-schedule appointments.
A self-scheduler is like an automated assistant and can be easily configured for your specific needs. As soon as your calendar and time slots are established for an event, you can invite preferred candidates to self-schedule their interviews via an email link. Once scheduled, the candidate will receive an automated communication that provides interview details, such as location, directions, interview prep questions, and more. If needed, the candidate may also re-schedule the interview without delaying the process. The appointment can be added to the candidate’s calendar and your interviewing team can easily access the entire event schedule at a glance.
An Automated Self-Scheduler:
- Streamlines interview scheduling and pre-screening
- Reduces time spent juggling schedules between candidates and interviewing team
- Reduces time-to-hire
- Allows recruiting teams to spend more time engaging with candidates
- Creates a better candidate experience
- Provides a competitive advantage
- Increases productivity and efficiency
- Automates tasks, including reminders
- Syncs with your ATS for a one-experience process
- Eliminates back-and-forth phone calls and emails
- Can be used on anywhere, 24/7 (mobile-friendly)
Outshine Your Competition
Probably one of the biggest perks of using an automated self-scheduling tool is the optimized candidate experience. College students are busy running from class-to-class to on-campus activities, they don’t have the luxury of time on their side. So, imagine that your first encounter with a college candidate demonstrates your company’s advanced use of technology via an automated experience. You’ve suddenly earned rock star status in the eyes of tech-savvy Millennials and Gen Zers!
As you can imagine, self-schedulers also are not limited to events. Think about all the time spent coordinating scheduling phone screens, video interviews and on-site meetings and the time you could save. Be the first to get top talent scheduled and engaged with automated recruiting technology.
