If you are a recruiter in the IT industry, you know how difficult it is to make contact with IT experts and convince them to apply. An important question that you should ask yourself today in IT recruiting is: Where are my candidates getting lost? You may have already managed to reach your target audience, but many disappear on the way to the application in your process. We've created an infographic that explains how to use smart HR analytics in recruiting to find out where candidates are getting lost today and what you can do about it.
Why use HR Analytics?
The question "where are my candidates getting lost today" can give you insight into your recruiting data. That is why it is so important to elevate key figures in recruiting. Moreover, these are an important basis for your argumentation when it comes to justifying and acquiring the recruiting budget internally. You will also get an overview of which channels bring good quality applications. In Talention, such reports are collected live.
Today, recruiting takes place online. That is why key figures are playing an increasingly important role. They will give you a deeper understanding of where you are losing your potential candidates. Only those who can comprehend the candidate journey of their target group with data are able to understand how it can be optimized, or where it is flawed and the candidates are lost.
With a modern recruitment marketing software, you can follow every single step of your candidate journey. You have an overview of every single channel, for example: how many candidates have seen the ad, how many have clicked on the "Apply Now" button, how many have applied, how many were interviewed, and how many have been hired.
5 Tips to Identify Sources of Error in Your IT Recruitment Process:
As described above, there are a variety of reasons why candidates may be leaving your site:
The job ad does not match the target group (wrong picture, etc.)
Wrong stream of visitors
Unfortunately, there are no overarching tips on how to get the top candidates, as it remains an individual process for any business. It is essential that you have an understanding of your process and vacancies. That's the only way you can figure out how to get the right candidates.
