Sourcing refers to finding a pool of potential candidates for a job. Organizations source candidates by putting out job postings, participating in career fairs, searching on social networks and asking for networking referrals (to name a few methods).
In Optimal Resume’s ResumeGPS™, employers can source candidates by searching through our database of resumes. They can target job and internship opportunities to particular users who match a certain set of criteria (work experience, industry, GPA, etc.).
We’re seeing many employers using that function! New jobs are posted every day using our Corporate-Connect® program, and Optimal Resume users can apply for those jobs with materials (resumes, cover letters, portfolios, etc.) they’ve created using our software.
Then there is the second piece of the puzzle – screening. Screening refers to narrowing down the applicant pool. Organizations do that by first reviewing applications, then interviewing candidates.
Optimal Resume offers several tools to help employers and candidates connect in that way, as well. As employers receive applications, they can invite promising candidates to videoconference and/or participate in online interviews. Both of these options allow employers and candidates to have face-to-face interaction, without the travel time and expenses for either party.
So, employers, the next time you post a job in our Corporate-Connect® system, be sure to investigate screening options, as well! If you’re not a part of Corporate-Connect, you can sign up for a free, 3-month Corporate-Connect® trial.
