Webinar Recording - Jumpstart Your Hiring
How do you restart your hiring after you've taken a break? Let's explore how to spruce up your current openings, get them up and running on the job boards, as well as tips, tricks, & best practices for working with current candidates and your hiring team members.
Watch the webinar below, and read along for more tips!
Refreshing & Republishing Current Openings
What is the current status of your openings? If your open has been published for a while, you may want to refresh it on the job boards. Has your opening being archived or set to no longer accepting candidates? Give it a once over before setting it to publish, and pushing it back out to your website and the job boards.
When adding new users, you have the option to assign them to specific openings - and when you de-activate users, you have the option to reassign any of their tasks. Want to manage more than one user at a time? Bulk user management allows you to add, de-activate, and reassign many users at once.
Use Reports to Gain Insight
Reports like the Hiring Pipeline and Candidate Sources report can help you gain valuable insight into your hiring process. Learn more about all of the reports available within Trakstar Hire here.
Remote Friendly Features in Trakstar Hire
Location: Within Trakstar Hire, we usually recommend that you set the location of your remote opening to be your main office location, geo-tagged, and selected from the Google dropdown. Or use your company’s built-in Work Address location! This will communicate where your main point of operations is to your candidate You’ll need to do this if you are going to be automatically syndicated to the free job boards - even if the position (or your entire company!) is remote.
If you’ll just be posting on your own website or sharing the opening manually, you can add “remote” or “work from anywhere” or something similar in the actual Location field, to display with your opening’s job details. Either way, you can click on the box that indicates Allows remote work, and this will mark that the opening is remote-friendly. This will be shared on your hosted site and the opening page as well!
Job Boards: Create trackable links to post to remote-friendly job boards, like WeWorkRemotely.com or Working Nomads.
Questionnaires: Send follow up questionnaires to your candidates, as an additional screening tool. Trakstar Hire's video questionnaires can even be used in place of a telephone call!
Self-Scheduling: Use the calendar integration (either via Google Calendar or Outlook Calendar) to sync your user's calendars with Trakstar Hire. The Self-Scheduling feature allows you to send candidates a selection of time slots that they can choose from!
