Industry/Use Case


    Sourcing enough applicants is one of the most frequently cited challenges hiring managers face, while candidates struggle most with getting through the initial resume screen and discovering relevant opportunities. To tackle challenges of such an order, every step you take should be stellar and optimized to source, attract, assess and hire the best candidates.

    Understanding who you are looking for:

    This e-book gives information about two kinds of candidates you’ll fi­nd:

    Passive Candidates – those who are not looking for a job change but can be open to one

     Active Candidates – those who are actively looking for a job or job change

    In such a case, building a comprehensive job description is of essence. A well written job description not only provides a clear picture of the position of potential candidates but is also useful apparatus for measuring performance and a vital reference in the event of disputes or disciplinary issues. The e-book further urges the employers to know what is making the coders switch their jobs. A switch can be attributed to need for change, hamper in growth and if you are providing a helping hand to their future. This knowledge helps in offering what the candidate exactly needs.

For large companies with a significant amount of hiring requirement every year, the only way to source a large number of candidates would be through online job portals or external hiring agents. For a relatively smaller company, an external hiring agency proves quite expensive even as they are widely used to ­find the right candidate.
