By Keisuke Inoue Last month, I documented my experience “dogfooding” our AI chatbot, Wendy, to help us find a great Natural Language Processing (NLP) Data Scientist. I outlined a general understanding of how Wendy works but this time around, I’d like to get under the hood and deep dive into...
Whether or not hiring for culture fit is effective or not is hotly debated in the field of HR. On one hand, finding employees who align with your company is every recruiter’s dream. On the other hand, there’s a persistent worry that culture fit is simply a way to disguise...
Onboarding is a key part of the hiring process — but in their haste, some companies overlook the process — or drop it completely. By doing so, they’re not only crippling their new employee’s productivity but are fostering a negative work environment. This can have serious consequences for the employer,...
By: Sara Martinez-Noriega This article is an excerpt from Illuminate, a Direct Agents’ publication. Access the full magazine here. The Great Resignation – what a daunting name for the phenomenon many companies are currently experiencing. After a year on pause, it only made sense that the normal attrition we should...
Recruitment is more than just sourcing — it’s building a reputation. To attract top talent, it’s necessary to lean into yours. When customers and candidates alike think of your company, their mind and mood should shift to meet your brand. Through word of mouth, posts on the internet, and in...
As the economy continues to recover from the pandemic, the “Great Resignation” looms over 2022. Droves of employees voluntarily leave their workplace every month, 4.4 million during February alone, and that trend is showing no signs of slowing. Retaining workers is harder than ever. Many employers are combatting this trend...
Attracting top talent takes more than just competitive pay. While salary is still important, benefits are what keep employees around long term. As we find ourselves in the midst of “The Great Resignation,” improving employee retention is as important as hiring new talent. With this in mind, providing desirable employee...
The internet has provided interesting alternatives to traditional interviewing — but do they really compete? One of the more effective methods that gained popularity during the pandemic is the video interview. By getting on a conference call or using a custom engagement portal, companies were able to find top talent...
The traditional, unstructured interview is becoming obsolete. Now more than ever, finding that unicorn candidate with experience and drive—and holding onto them— is key. Behavioral-based interviewing provides an effective alternative, collecting more pertinent information, and bolstering results compared to unstructured interviews.   Today we’ll be discussing behavioral interviewing, its benefits, and...
While going through an agency is an effective way to hire, nothing beats effective in-house recruitment. In-house recruiters know your company inside and out. A good recruitment team can transform the face of your company into a marketable, diverse landscape. The employees they hire, stick around for the long haul....
By Keisuke Inoue At PandoLogic, we’re growing at incredible speeds. So much so that our own internal recruiters need some assistance to keep up with our hiring demand. As the Lead Data Algorithm Analyst at PandoLogic, I thought that this would be an incredible opportunity for our AI chatbot, Wendy,...
Traditionally speaking, when a recruiter is tasked with finding a new employee to fill a role, the role is defined by its title and responsibilities rather than in terms of the skills and abilities needed in the organization. While it’s easy to hire someone to fill a position, it may...
After weeks and possibly months of recruiting, scheduling, and conducting interviews — you’ve found your new hire. What next? For many companies that’s it. They share the good news with their selected candidate, extend an offer, and begin the onboarding process. Most of the time, the candidates who did not...
AI recruitment software usage is still on the rise. Over 37% of businesses currently employ AI software in the workplace, and that number is only expected to rise as the decade continues. The benefits of working AI recruitment software into your hiring plan are many, and with a variety of...
Recruiting videos are one of the best ways to showcase your company’s culture. While a job ad tells a candidate what they’ll be doing for you — a quality recruiting video is almost a personality piece. After watching, an applicant will understand what makes your company tick, and the personality...
Traditional sourcing is a battle for the attention of applicants. When it comes to reeling in the best talent, recruiters have a lot of competition. Job description quality is often a differentiating factor. It’s the first introduction applicants get to your organization, and it needs to be enticing to separate...
While the restrictions that the pandemic brought are slowly lifting, talent gaps are still rearing their heads. Tech skills are needed more than ever — but it’s becoming difficult to find a candidate with the necessary skill set. Attracting top talent is the goal of every recruiting team; but what...
For the longest time, culture fit was a deciding factor in recruiting—and it still is for many recruiters today. Finding a candidate that slots easily into the way that your organization runs has its benefits, but it’s not always the best way to approach hiring for culture. For example, hiring...
Recruiting for one or more open positions, with such an enormous talent pool spread across dozens of websites and forums, has become more difficult than ever to navigate in the age of remote working. Potential candidates now span from local job seekers to global digital nomads, and while that means...
Too often recruiters will have to recount a time when they thought they’d found a unicorn candidate—only for them to become a bad hire or leave quickly. On these occasions, it’s more than likely that the job fit was poor. Bad hires cost employers $15,000 per employee at minimum, and...
Recruitment strategies are constantly shifting with the job market, and it’s important to be able to adapt to these changes in order to snag top hires. Before jumping into trends and specialized ways of hiring great talent, it’s important to understand the fundamental hiring types and how they play off...
Recruitment software and other hiring tools have one goal — to reduce recruiter workload. For the most part, these tools serve at most a small variety of functions. Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) allows companies to organize and track a large number of candidates based on a variety of factors, but...
In recruiting, unconscious bias harms diversity and overall quality of hire. Little things like preferring familiar names or saying that a hire is just a good “culture fit” will drain a diverse candidate pool. Over time, it won’t just be your diversity that will wane — your organization’s work quality...
Building a talent pool can save you time and money during recruitment — and is essential for growing organizations. As retention rates reach record lows and talent gaps widen, talent pool development becomes a more valuable resource for HR teams. In this article, we’ll be defining the types of talent...
Finding talent locally has its benefits — but expanding your outreach outside of traditional methods can yield excellent results as well. Global talent acquisition normally involves sourcing candidates internationally, as you’d expect, but it could simply mean recruiting from new areas that you wouldn’t normally consider. A global talent acquisition...
Managing candidate expectations, especially for high-volume positions, can be a daunting yet ultimately rewarding task for both the employer and the candidate. 2022 is an employee market, and it’s now easier than ever for potential candidates to pursue positions on their terms, which means employers must stand out from the...
The recruiting environment of today is fast-paced and hostile. Talent is harder to come by, and candidates are asking more of their employers than ever before. As the balance between worker and employer shifts, it’s important to make use of hiring tools to bridge the gap between your organizations and...
The need for quality candidates is greater now than ever—but sacrificing fair hiring practices for efficiency is a mistake you don’t want to make. Over the past half-century, laws surrounding Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) have grown stricter and more specific in order to protect candidates from bias.  Failing to make...
Recruiting diverse candidates is top of mind for many recruiters—and for good reason. The value of various life experiences, mindsets, and cultures cannot be overstated. Recruiting diverse candidates allows organizations to make connections with all manner of people, creating a healthy company image and office culture simultaneously.  Actually finding quality...
Hiring during this ever-changing economic climate is as challenging as it is unpredictable. With more than 4 million Americans voluntarily leaving their jobs each month, figuring out how to hold onto talent is becoming the top priority for employers. When hiring for the future, it’s important to take into account...
