2. Communicate, Communicate, Communicate: Internally and Externally
If you do not invest in this part, you may end up losing your top candidates in the middle of the process.
Recruiters often face a problem with sharing information with one another. It’s not because they don’t want to but because it can get confusing to share lots of information via paper or without a functioning system. With modern recruitment software, recruiters can work with one another fluidly and send messages within the system. All communication is gathered into one place and can be accessed in real-time from anywhere. In the best-case scenario, recruiters and hiring managers can handle the most important recruitment tasks from their mobile devices.
Do not forget the communication with your candidates. It’s a crucial part of being effective. Communicate well with your candidates and provide an excellent candidate experience through your recruitment process. If you do not invest in this part, you may end up losing your top candidates in the middle of the process and need to start all over again.
3. Automate Your Process with the Help of Modern HR tech and AI
What can and should you automate? In my opinion, pretty much everything in the recruitment process except for the final decision making can be automated.
A Few Examples
- Candidate Communication: Send status updates automatically to inform candidates about how the process will move forward. Let AI help you write personalized feedback to candidates.
- Sourcing: Use AI and modern HR tech to source candidates from internal or external talent pools on your behalf.
- Matching: Let AI matching algorithms automatically rate and highlight the most suitable candidates. Contact the top-rated candidates first.
To automate your recruitment process, you must start by finding a suitable recruitment system that will not only save time but also increase productivity.

4. Build Your Talent Community
You can save a tremendous amount of time by building your own Talent community. Imagine starting a new recruitment process, and you already have a pool of interested talent. How easy would it be if you could just start selecting the most suitable candidates out of that pool? You could start contacting them immediately without even opening a job ad publicly.
