There are many recruiting products for recruiters that can help productivity. At one time, recruiters used 3×5 cards. It worked but then things changed. Recruiting software started helping recruiters manage their candidates, job orders and clients much better. This leads to better productivity and more placements.
When Choosing the best recruiting software and products for your business it is important to know your workflow. This means understanding how you are most productive. The recruiting products you use must fit into the way you do business. Most recruiting software is far too engineered and many of the functionality will never be used.
In my opinion, you need to have a good way to track candidates, track clients, track job orders and be able to create and follow a daily plan. Make sure it has a good calendar system.
Some of the better recruiting software on the market allows integration with other productivity tools. This can be a valuable benefit because from one central dashboard, you can communicate with different software packages.
Another valuable application that some recruiting products allow is you can let your clients into your database and define rules that limit what they can have access to. I like this feature.
At one point Linkedin allowed API integration to many applicant tracking software systems. You could import a linkedin profile directly into your ATS. As far as I know now, Catsone software is the only recruiting software that allows this.
Some of the recruiting products on the market today fall into a number of different categories:
RecruitingSoftware.info is a recruiting software directory that lists many products and services for recruiters. If you are a vendor that designs and develops products for recruiters, you should consider creating a listing.
