Last month we did a webinar with HR.com on the Work Opportinity Tax Credit. The webinar features #WOTC expert Brian Kelly from Cost Management Services, and Mel Kleiman, Hourly Worker Retention Expert and Speaker.
When you’re coming from a manual or paper based recruiting and hiring setting it can seem like a huge undertaking to move from paper to electronic environment. At iRecruit, we aim to simplify that for you, and make the transition as smooth as possible. Firstly, we work with your schedule so you’ll be on time with any goal dates for deliverables.
Your Applicant Tracking Software (ATS) can be a gold mine of data, or a black hole from a candidate perspective. The thing we recommend to all customers is using your communication tools to stay in touch with candidates regularly. We’ve put together a few common emails that our customers might use for communicating with candidates.
The Latest Updates widget displays the five most recent updates to applicant info, and includes the following: Applicant ID, Applicant Name, what update took place, Updated By, if an interview was scheduled in iRecruit the date also will display, Date Updated. Users can add this new widget by going to your username on the top right, User Profile and Settings.
iRecruit’s customers have received an average of 153 new employment applications in the first month of 2020. This is up slightly from December 2019 which averaged 131. The number of applications by customer typically varies based on the number of jobs posted.
