One of the trending things in the present are the hiring apps. They makes things easier for both the employing and the employed parties. There are all kinds of such applications out there and you will come across the best potential candidates always. On the other hand, as a business, you need to enroll yourself in these jobs related applications because your competitors may already have. But what should you know when it comes to hiring via these apps?
Here are 5 mistakes that you should avoid when using these apps.
- Not specifying what you expect from the employees clearly
It doesn’t matter how obvious it seems, always remember to descriptively explain on what you expect. This is due to many reasons. For a start, your interpretation on the job title could not be as same as that of your employees. On the other hand, the job description haziness could increase the application pool with unsuitable candidates, making things complicated. Hence, be sure to be describe what you expect clearly.
- Not stating whether you are recruiting for long term, short term, or for one-timer
Stating the job description isn’t enough, you need to specify the time duration of the employment. This is one of the occasions where even the most sophisticated companies mess things up. On the other hand, it is useless if your employee can’t live up to the duration criterion of the job. So in order to avoid huge disappointments and to make things easier for both parties, remember to emphasize the job duration.
- Relying on whatever the qualifications of the candidates
People can say a lot of thing about how experienced and educationally qualified they are for the job, just to be recruited, but how many of them can prove it for you. This is one of the huge mistakes that all the employers need to avoid when using any kind of a job search app because it is more or less common sense. If the qualifications and experience fit the job, always ask for the credentials before hiring.
- Not using the right keywords for the advertisements
This one simple mistake could cost you in ways that you can’t imagine. This is the place where a best candidate will not come across your advertisement just because you have used the word ‘colour’, instead of ‘color’. That is just an interpretation on how things can be mixed up in a job seeker app in Singapore. Hence, remember to use the words very wisely.
- Not conducting video interviews
This applies more if you don’t want the employee over at your workplace. But then again, to avoid all kinds of surprises, try to get them for a Skype interview before even going for a proper interview. Perhaps that simple interview altogether would be enough but it is better to confirm that they are who they claim to be. None wants a 60-year-old man to show up if you’re expecting a 25 years old chap.
Now that you know what you should not do, you will be able to get the best employee on board with you in no time.
