Q: Do you feel like online recruiting job boards are like an online dating site?

Yes – 54%

No – 46%

It sure would be easy if we could just swipe right or left to process applicants quicker, but we can take a lesson from these apps. They make it easy to use, a simple “swipe” is all it takes. Reimagining the online application process is a great first step. Make it as easy as possible to apply and KISS- keep it simple stupid. This is an employee driven market you are courting them, make it as easy as possible to engage with you. Want more tips? Contact us today!
