The world of recruitment is face-paced and having a website is no longer enough. An app brings together recruiters and candidates in an environment that benefits both parties. It can mean that push notifications can be sent to candidates with new jobs and recruiters can obtain information quickly.
It is important that recruiters engage with candidates and that can be done through an app. The whole process of sending messages, asking questions, posting jobs and searching for positions instantly becomes a streamlined process.
When recruiters introduce an app as part of their marketing campaign, they can make the whole experience easier and more accessible for candidates and that counts for a lot in the world we live in.
Apps drive engagement and they improve relationships. When candidates can reach out to recruiters and feel connected, it enhances trust and that resonates with them.
Many recruitment agencies have a problem with contacting candidates. Keeping in touch with them can prove time-consuming and often, any messages that are sent can get lost in amongst countless emails. An app is direct. It reaches out to candidates and gives them the chance to check their messages and reply quickly. Recruiters can update candidates quickly and that can benefit both parties.
Make an Impact in Your Niche
If you are working in a niche recruitment market like us then you need to stand out. To do this, you have to offer something different, especially as those who are looking for jobs in your market know that you have the right contacts and jobs for them. This will attract candidates but you have to offer them more. When they know that you are the place to go for the latest jobs in their sector, offering them a simple app can make it possible for them to access the jobs that only you have.
You Can Offer Real-Time Updates
Recruitment agencies can offer a wide range of roles ranging from permanent to temporary roles. The temporary roles require things to move quickly and so, if you have an app, you can deliver up-to-date information to those who are looking for temporary work. This means that recruiters no longer have to spend time making calls trying to fill the positions. If candidates have access to an app, it provides them with convenience because they know that they are less likely to miss out on these jobs.
Mobile is the Future
This might seem fairly obvious now but candidates are already searching for their next job using their phone. This is because it is simple, they can do it when they have a spare few minutes and they can do it when they are on the move. Recruiters need to have a “mobile-first” mentality when it comes to thinking about the future. Your website might work brilliantly but it is no longer enough. Having an app is now the perfect way to reach a wider audience, engage with candidates and ensure that your agency goes from strength to strength.
It seems as though you need an app these days in order to future-proof your business. It is a competitive industry and doing as much as you can to make life as simple as possible for candidates is vital.
