Head Hunting through Job Search Sites

Finding the right people to hire is now easier with job search sites. There are several of these websites online where companies can post job openings and get the job application process started. Applicants no longer have to fall in line and wait to be entertained at their prospective employers’ offices. Neither do the prospective employers have to spend hours and hours interviewing job applicants who do not necessarily meet their requirements. Starting the job application process through these job search websites significantly reduces the time and effort spent by human resources personnel in screening applicants for their company’s job openings.

When applicants to your job openings posted in the job search sites signify their interest in your company, you can already pre-screen them through their online profile. As you would in face-to-face applications, you have to review the applicant’s credentials and experience. In some job search websites, job applicants have to fill out an online form and attach their resume. This should give you an idea of the qualifications of your job applicants.

You should also do a background check on your online job applicants. Some applicants might falsify the information they provide you. Be sure to check the veracity of the credentials listed in their resumes. This step is extremely important when it comes to jobs that require certifications, licenses, or diplomas. You should also be able to do a character check based on the information given to you in the online application. Ask for character references. Your investigation will help your get a glimpse of the character, work practices, and values of the job applicant.

After taking these steps, you can make a short list of your candidates. The next step would be to schedule an interview. Again, in these modern times, you can do this online too. You can set an interview date and give instructions to the shortlisted applicants about which messaging program to use during the interview.
