Talented people today have a lot of options. Recruiters from companies and agencies are contacting them. They're seeing job ads on social media. And hearing about opportunities from friends.
With so many jobs on offer, how do they decide which ones are worth applying for?
The 2018 Talent Board candidate experience report found that 70.5% of candidates conduct their own research before applying for a job. And for most people (60%), the career site is their most valuable resource.
Because of this shift, your careers site has become your recruitment hub.
All of your recruitment activities lead to your career site. People seeing your job ads will research you before they apply. The people you contact directly will research you to decide how they’ll respond.
How confident are you that your career site will give them what they’re looking for? Help them understand the role? Answer any questions they have? Make it clear how the role fits into the company structure? Why the job is important and how it will make a difference?
We know, this sounds like a lot of work. And you’re already working as hard as you can to keep up with your company’s growth. You just don’t have the time to plan and execute an overhaul of your career site, on top of everything else you're doing.
But there is an easy way.
A way to give the people visiting your career site enough specific information to make them feel confident they’re making the right choice in applying.
A way to do this for every different visitor - giving them the specific information they need - for all the different roles in your company.
A way that’s less effort and quicker for the candidate so they’re more likely to apply - or leave their details so you can let them know when the right job comes up.
You can do all of this by adding Ideal Role’s chatbot to your existing careers site.
The advantage of a chatbot is that it uses conversation. In an easy and engaging way, the Ideal Role chatbot can find out what someone is looking for and present them with specific content at the right time.
Like a video from the hiring manager explaining the role they’re interested in. Or details on your flexible working policy.
In just a few minutes, our chatbot provides a personal experience that can remove the doubts stopping someone from applying. Best of all, it does this whenever they want. Any hour of the day. And you don’t have to lift a finger.
Ideal Role’s chatbot will transform your career site into a high performing sales machine, turning visitors into candidates.
And help you make connections with the people your company needs to fuel its growth.
