Find talent and let talent find you

An exceptional candidate experience can go a long way when trying to find the best talent for your organization. Zoho Recruit can not only help you find quality people, but it also has tools that make the application process easier and more efficient for candidates.

Design a Careers page that portrays your brand

Use your company website to elevate your candidate experience. Create a careers site that lists every job opening with complete descriptions and accepts applications for multiple job openings at once. Build SEO friendly career pages, customized to fit your brand and embedded onto your website. Ensure the page is mobile-friendly as well, so candidates can apply from their phones or tablets.

Provide easy accessibility with a candidate portal

When searching for the best talent, sometimes posting a vacancy through multiple mediums is not enough. Provide your candidates with a portal where they can apply and track their application. This makes the process simpler for your candidates and increases your ability to tap into a highly qualified talent pool for future job openings. Having a candidate portal also greatly improves your employer brand.

Post once and publish everywhere

The first step in attracting qualified candidates is advertising your job openings on the right job board. Gone are the days when recruiters posted job opening and waited for candidates to apply.

Sharpen your social recruiting game

Social recruiting is more than just posting your job vacancies on social networks. 82% of recruiters say they use social media to recruit managers.
